Is the PC37X open-back or closed-back? The PC37X is an open-back headset. This means that there is no physical structure that envelops the back of the drivers. In general, open-back headphones have a superior soundstage when compared with closed-back headphones. This is because a closed ear cup produces reflections in the sound. This means the perceived location of a sound is more precise, which is specifically important in gaming (think CS:GO). What are the drivers in the PC37X? How is the sound quality? The Massdrop x Sennheiser PC37X uses the same drivers as the Sennheiser PC 373D. Regarding sound quality, the PC37X is very comparable (if not superior to) audiophile headphones in the same price point, and it sounds better than the vast majority of gaming headsets. How is the mic quality? The PC37X has one of the best mics among headsets that we’ve tested. Most complaints for gaming headset mics are a result of either hardware issues (manufacturers using cheaper parts or making suboptimal design decisions) or software issues (manufacturers adding an on-board soundcard or proprietary software that performs poorly). On the hardware side, the PC37X contains a mic that is designed specifically by Sennheiser (which has extensive experience as a microphone developer and manufacturer) for high-volume, low-distance recording. On the software side, the PC37X has no signal processing and outputs straight into the mic jack on your motherboard or soundcard, therefore avoiding any potential issues. Is the cable removable? Yes, the cable is removable and replaceable. I plugged in the PC37X and the sound or mic doesn’t sound right/good? Most issues that users have experienced are due to problems with their computer hardware or software setups. Unfortunately, it can be hard to diagnose the specific reason or root cause. @acey for example has written a reply to help solve one user’s problems (*1). One thing to mention is that, it’s generally recommended to plug the headset directly into the sound card (as opposed to using front panel audio ports) in order to minimize interference. Does the PC37X work for console gaming (PS4, Xbox One, etc.) or mobile or mac? Yes, however, you will need an adapter or a separate cable. The included cable ends in two jacks (headphone & microphone) whereas most consoles/phones have one port that takes a TRRS (4 pole) AHJ/CTIA standard 3.5mm jack. If you want an adapter, something similar to this one (*2) should work. For Macs, something similar to this one (*3) should work. If you want something more sleek, you can get a cable that plugs straight into the headset and ends with a TRRS jack. Something similar to this one (*4) would work. Is there a limited amount of units available? Yes, for the second production run, we are limited to 600 units. We are currently working with Sennheiser to increase the limit. Will this drop be available internationally? What will be the shipping price internationally? Yes, the drop will be available to all international countries that Massdrop ships to. International shipping will be around $15. We will continue to add to the FAQ as more questions arise. *1: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-sennheiser-pc37x-gaming-headset/talk/1618390 *2: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/pcv-05 *3: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/pcv07 *4: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/accessories--unp-console-cable--game-one--game-zero

Nothing against Drop, but right now the Sennheiser PC 373D's are on sale on Amazon for $110. Always good to have options :-)

You can NOT use a small 7$ 3.5mm to USB adapter on this headset, the mic will not work. You also can't use typical docking stations 3.5mm mic plug, as they also typically are just a small USB adapter internally. You HAVE to either user onboard audio via your motherboard, or use a USB DAC with mic. I had tried my docking stations 3.5mm, didn't work, would have to scream into it to have it even register sound. Same thing with 3.5mm to USB 7$ adapter. Had to buy a USB audio DAC with a mic port. (Careful if you need to buy one of these as they are sometimes 1/4in audio ports and you will need to buy a 3.5mm to 1/4in adapter). After getting that though, it SOUND GREAT. It is a VERY nice headset, ans almost sounds as good as my headphone only Sennheiser's I replaced my old headset as it was hurting my ears (I use them for work), and these are the same shape as my primary gaming headphones (I have a standalone mic for my home system). If your getting these for work, know that they are 3.5mm connections, and the mic requires more power then a small USB adapter or docking station will supply. This same issue MAY occur on motherboard audio ports if they are low quality or do not supply enough power via the 3.5mm TLDR: If your not plugging this directly into your motherboard, you need a DAC with mic port for the microphone to work. When getting the DAC, careful as they may be 1/4in and you will need adapter plugs. Sounds great, 100% happy with the product even with the issues I hit.

Hey my PC37x has been wack lately. While listening to streams or starting up a game on Steam, I would have this problem with my audio where the sound gets very distorted. This is apparent on Google Chrome and Discord. I've been restarting my PC to fix this problem every time but its been happening more and more and I'm fed up with it. I need some guidance. Some preface about this issue I feel I should include: my windows updates are up to date and I've tried disabling and enabling my "Speaker (SoundBlaster Recon 3di" and "Microphone (SoundBlaster Recon 3di)". To be honest, I don't even know if my headset should even be classified under these names because when I use my brother's headset, my PC reads it as "Headset (Corsair VOID Pro)" I'm at a point where I messed around too much in device manager and cannot even hear anything now. I'm at a loss.

I recommend taking to support. I’ve had issues where the sound on the left headphone would become muted at times and only by restarting my PC would the issue be fixed. I spoke to Drop support and they are sending a replacement.

Is the frame and cups made of metal or plastic? Wanted to know because my last plastic headset cracked when it fell off of my desk.

They are actually aluminum. I have both these and the Game One's (same thing). At first I thought plastic, but surprisingly no.
