The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset features the brand’s “Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement” technology which delivers sound more accurately to your ears, along with professional soundscape which allows for more optimized acoustic spatial resolution, meaning you get to hear more of the sounds you are supposed to hear. For the gamers looking for the surround sound experience, the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset also has 7.1 channel surround powered by Dolby technologies to fully immerse yourself into the game’s environment.

The headset itself has an open design, keeping your ears cool even when the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset is worn for long periods of time, while its XXL velvet ear pads and cushioned headband makes the headset very comfortable. And gamers won’t have to fumble for the volume as volume control can be easily found on the right ear cup.

The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset also has a professional-grade noise-cancelling microphone which removes any ambient sounds, making conversations clear as they can be.

Sound Quality

The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset truly delivers on its promise of delivering what you are supposed to hear both accurately and clearly. Once you slip the headset comfortably on and start gaming, watching movies, or listening to music, you will hear extremely crisp sounds of everything there is to hear. Every layer of sound, every instrument, and even the minutest of sounds can be heard with the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset.

The Dolby surround sound capability heightens the listening experience, especially in terms of movies and gaming, as it brilliantly gives you a listening experience only comparable to being almost in the movie or game yourself. With Dolby surround sound on, you will be glancing around you, looking for whatever it was that made that sound – the quintessential experience for anyone who wants to completely lose their selves into the game or movie. Having Dolby surround sound when it comes to music, on the other hand, will give you a much deeper appreciation of all the instruments, allowing for the melody to be completely heard.  Dolby surround sound in music will give you a sense of being there, of having the music you are listening to feel like you are watching a concert.

The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset combined with Dolby surround sound is surely the perfect audio experience there is. The clear, crisp sound coupled with the sense of being in the environment where the sound is coming from is the premium experience that the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset can give you.

Headset, Mic, and Warranty

The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset is extremely comfortable, this due to the cushioned headband and the XXL velvet ear pads. You won’t be getting those headaches due to tight fitting headbands that cling to your scalp as the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset’s cushioned headband allows for comfortably slipping on, off, and staying on your head. The XXL velvet ear pads gives you that easy fit around your ears, no itchy, scratchy sensation that other headsets give your ears. The ear pads are also very breathable so you will be able to wear them for long periods of time without being sweaty, itchy, or uncomfortable. The downside when it comes to the comfortable ear cups is that they still allow you to hear some sound from your immediate surroundings.

Other gaming headsets focus on the sound quality of the headset itself but neglect the microphone. The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset’s microphone is unlike any other as it does deliver on clear conversations due to its noise-cancelling features. The microphone, though not the same grade of other professional microphones meant for voice recording, is definitely superior compared to other gaming headsets’ microphone that are currently out in the market.

The headset’s volume control is also another feature of note. The simplicity of the design of the volume control being located on the right ear cup is genius. A lot of the gaming headsets in the market have a separate volume control that is located on the cable of the headset. But who has time to look for the volume control along the cable when the sound you are hearing at the moment is too soft or too loud? Just easily rotate the volume control on the right ear cup and you have seamless control of your audio experience.

The Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset has a 2-year warranty which guarantees you perfect sound experience for years, and with Sennheiser’s network around the world warranty cases can be handled easily and quickly.

Worth Your Money

The Sennheiser PC 363D is truly a premium quality gaming headset with a premium quality price tag of around $300. However, its features more than make up for its price and the 2-year warranty prolongs the fact that you have an amazing gaming headset for several years. The clear, crisp sound quality is unlike any other gaming headsets and its microphone allows for clear, unhindered conversations. The headband along with the ear cups are quite comfortable making it ideal for anyone who wants the headset to be on their heads for long periods of time. If you want premium quality headset, go for the Sennheiser PC 363D Gaming Headset as it is certainly the best when it comes to its price range.

I have had the Sennheiser 363D for some time now and I couldn’t be happier. I was first skeptical about it because it got so many good reviews and it’s really expensive, but it turns out all those good reviews were right! It’s really super comfortable to wear, and I should know, I spend more than six hours wearing it for one game session. And in my many hours of playing, I didn’t get those awful sweaty ears due to the ear cups not being breathable.

The sound on this headset is phenomenal! One of the reasons why I am gaming more now is its great audio. I’m an RPG junky, and when I play games like Skyrim or Diablo 3, I get to hear sounds that I have never heard before from other headsets. And wait till you try the surround sound on this headset. When I first used it in Skyrim, my head literally turned to the direction of where the sound of the approaching dragon was. Having epic surround sound in open world games is just awesome! Watching movies on it too is a whole new experience, it’s just like watching movies in the theater only you are at home and the surround sound is better! This is really worth your money and a must-have for anyone who is always hooked to their PC.

I have been using the 363D for more than 7 months now and I really got to say: this headset is awesome! I have yet to find a single flaw about this headset. Great audio, mic, surround sound, and comfort. I have used a LOT of headsets in the past and so far, this one’s the very best!

One of the best gaming headsets in term of features and quality, these headphones have poor design aesthetics. Apart from their appearance, they are great headphones.
• Pros
– Great audi- quality with 7.1 virtual surround sound.
– Noise cancelling mic
– Very durable
– Great voice clarity

• Cons
– Looks cheap
– Mic cannot be detached

• Verdict
The headphone is a great gadget with a high quality sound. However, it has poor looks which is keeping a lot of customers away from buying these headphone.
