The sound is really crystal clear. The sound is really crystal clear.

Good sound for movies and games but a big no for music. Earcup too tight, hurt my ears after 1 hour use. The usb card works just fine, it let me to choose between stereo, 5. 1 setting and also to turn on or off the dolby surround (you will likely to turn on the dolby option all the time). What i really can’t tell is the difference between stereo, 5. 1 mode i can’t hear that a sound comes from behind me, it’s just sounds like stereo with cool effect. Microphone works very well, my friend hears my voice very clear during video conference or gaming. Slide it up will automatically turn off the microphone and i think this is the most convenient feature in this headset. Volume rocker sits in good location on the right speaker, i have no problem in adjusting the volume. That being said, this headset just an okay for me, earcup tightness is a big disadvantage and 7. 1 surround just an advertising.

The sound is really crystal clear. The sound is really crystal clear. Here are the specifications for the Sennheiser PC333D:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • More spacious sound field – 7.1 channel surround sound powered by Dolby Headphone to accurately pinpoint noises from all directions in the gamescape
  • High quality speakers deliver great acoustic performance from games, music, movies and internet calls
  • Great for LAN gaming – the circumaural closed acoustic design of XL ear cups blocks out noise around you for hyper-realistic gaming with total immersion
  • Intuitive design and automatic microphone mute – the volume control is integrated in the right ear cup and you can mute the microphone by raising the boom arm

Still working perfectly, sounding great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Tolerable at best.
  • Sound is brilliant but the overhead band is very weak
  • Number 1 Headset

Great quality of sound, feels like you are really inside the game when playing on minecraft. Only problem was the headset developed a fault with one of it’s contacts where it’s plugged into the computer so had to get a replacement. Amazon were amazing with their after sales service.

I must say this is the best headset i’ve ever owned, i’ve had several pairs of headsets in my time and the sound & mic on these are simply excellent. I do have one issue however, there tight very tight, i can game with these for about 2 hours before they become uncomfortable, after 4 hours i need to take them off, i’m hoping they’ll loosen up or my head will just get used to them. The set software is simpl & easy. I would like to see a few more options in the software rather that just 2, 5. Works perfectly with team speak and everyone was asking what’s happened to my voice as im now very clear.

Sound is brilliant but the overhead band is very weak. Sound is brilliant but the overhead band is very weak. Needed repair to stop it breaking into two pieces.

-fairly good sound quality; certainly not of a high enough standard to meet the unrealistic price tag. – the 3d audio dolby yadda yadda yadda feature feels certainly more like a cheap gimmick that is on the same level as these rgb light up headsets you can get on the market. – sturdy as hell: that’s for sure. – not very suitable for gaming as the audio requires a lot of tweaking and adjustment via 3rd party tools/assets like equalisers and such.

1 channel and a good microphone for speaking with other people. I suggest this for fps games.

The best headset i have ever bought in terms of audio and mic quality. Perfect in almost every way; design, features, the lot. The surround sound works a treat on games or movies with surround sound (it doesn’t make stereo or mono sound better because they are not surround sound formats so it sound like it is in a tunnel). Comfort is not the best but whatever, these headphones are too good to care.

This headset is excellent, bought it for gaming. I previously had a ozone headset and the quality when i was using teamspeak or vent was pathetic. This on the other hand, the quality is superb, the sound quality is always top class. I recommend this headset for anyone on windows 7. It is also very loud, if you are buying this – make sure your systems volume is at at 4% maximum or you will have no ears left. :)there is one downside to this headset – it is tight at the start but you get used to this and it again beats my last headset which was previously falling off my head.

Overall a very good pair of headphones, just what i would expect from sennheiser. -the headset feels solid and well made. -volume control and mic are well placed and easier than chasing down a lead to find a little volume in-line fob. Mic has received several comments for clarity on teamspeak since i have started using it. -sound is just as good as any normal stereo hifi sennheiser headset i have used. Maybe a bit brighter than some sennheiser headphones, but nothign huge. -surround sound is good considering that it is virtual and not real 5. I wouldn’t say they are any better than my old 5. 1 cheaper headset for positional audio, but to me in a real game they are no worse. I am not a dedicated fps player any more, so maybe i just dont notice any lacking here. -head strap is a bit tight, and ear cups could be a bit bigger, but this is the case with all outside noise dampening headsets i find. -haven’t tested the dolby side of it with a dolby movie, but this isn’t the reason i brought it.

ERATO Audio AEAP07SG00 Apollo Wireless 7 True In-Ear tooth Headphones : Foam tips have fallen apart after only 2months.

But substantially better sound and insulation. Not quite as person-helpful as the apple ear pods, but significantly improved audio and insulation.
