Looking to get a new pair for my new desk. I'll be using them mostly for gaming, but not exclusively.
Want to wait for the K7XX to become available again, but was wondering how do these compare with them?

I have had the K7XX and now own what I call the K7XXr's (R=Red) You have put me in a tough position on this! I love my K7XX's I even have them up against all my audiophile cans. I feel the K7XX's are just a fun pair.
What pulls the PC37X's edge over the K7XX's is the Mic. I really like the Mic on the PC37X. it's a Sennheiser Signature. beautifully detailed and crisp. Sure I can use the ModMic 4.0 with the K7XX. but I hate dealing with to many cables and even with the little connectors that come with the midmic, to connect the cable with the K7XX cable. For me, its to much to deal with. Plus when you flip the Mic up on the PC37X's. its mutes the mic. So much easier that while playing you are fumbling to find the little switch on the cable. lol

all the samples i've heard for the mic quality were really bad (voice sounding muffled) but you're saying it sounds crisp, has this issue been fixed?

Are you talking about Samples of the PC37X? or another Sennheiser Mic?
The mic on the PC37X is pretty much the exact same mic used in the Game One's, Zero's, 363D's or PC360 ( which are the 363D's without 7.1 ). However, I did have an issue with the Zero mic no working at all.
I have not had any issues with the PC37X mic so far with the testing I have done on them.
On Monday I will be having a couple of meetings for work and I will use the PC37X for those meetings through a couple of conferencing apps that I use. I will also be using them for my Xbox One Monday Night to run some raids.
I can say this. If I have any issues with a mic being muffled. I get rid of them. I can't stand that. Period. This is why I don't use the newer versions of the Astro headphones anymore or the beyerdynamic MMX330's (older model) cause they had a issue with clipping. I hate hearing myself sound like I'm in a trashcan and I like for people to hear me nice a clearly if I am on their team. It's a curtesy thing more or less

Can't say about the PC37X since no reviews are available for now but since it's based on the PC 373D i checked the reviews for this model and the mic quality was bad compared to a G4ME ONE (for example on the PC 373D review from HardwareCanucks)
I've heard about a software update that was supposed to fix the issue to get a quality closer to the G4ME ONE but did not find any reviews including that update.
So i'm just wondering if the quality is actually still as bad as the PC 373D reviews or better.

I will do more testing since my daily drivers are the Game Ones and I do have a set of the older version, G4me Ones. If anyone asks there are two different versions of them. The G4me are identical to the Game Ones just without the detachable cable
I just got my sample today so I did not have much time to test them out much but. As far as I can hear, the mic on the Ones and the 373D are the exact same.

I hope so, that would make my decision of buying this headset way easier! Thanks for the feedback!

Really don't care about the mic. It's sound quality and comfort I look for. Will get the gsx 1000 as well and don't mind the price difference between the 2. Also, don't mind the cables.

Thread up on Head-fi. Watch that for reviews. Initial impressions are very good.

I don't know if you saw my Twitch stream last night (Monday the 16th) while I was using the PC37X, after I posted my review, but people commented that the mic quality was very good. I had the mic connected to a Creative BlasterX G5, but at one point I switched to plugging everything into my DualShock 4 headset port and everyone said the sound was more tinny and less rich.
The lesson here is the mic itself is very good, but the ADC matters and perhaps the complaints about the PC373D mic were all due to the USB dongle bottlenecking the performance.
