Sennheiser's PC 323D is a 7.1 surround sound gaming headset, powered by Dolby Headphone and Dolby ProLogic IIx technology. It comes with its own G4ME1 7.1 USB sound card, eliminating the need for an internal one and facilitating simple installation.
With a 7.1 arrangement, gamers can pinpoint where the action is happening according to 7 different directions. As Sennheiser say, "it's no longer just about hearing the action - it's about being in the center of it."
In the thick of battle, gamers wanting a way of communicating with their online brethren will speak into a pro noise cancelling microphone. The microphone ensures clear conversations and can be easily muted by raising the boom arm.
Sennheiser aimed to make the PC 323D comfortable during long gaming sessions. It has an open design that ensures you stay cool and the ear pads rotate and automatically adjust to a gamer's head.
The company's Product Manager, Christian Ern, believes the PC 323D produces sound convincing enough that you won't need a home theatre system.
"We've made this spectacular gaming headset for gamers who seek the highest quality in surround sound combined with great wearing comfort. With the PC 323D, you don't need a full surround system at home. This headset has you fully covered."
Entry level gamers looking for headphones a little lower in the product chain can also check out Sennheiser's PC 310, which like the PC 323D, comes with the company's 2 year worldwide warranty.
Sennheiser promise pricing and availability for these headphones will be "confirmed in the coming weeks."
