Sennheiser PC 151 gaming headset review

 

You want to play games on your PC late into the night, but are afraid you'll disturb the neighbours, kids, Mrs Pocket-lint (delete as applicable). One option and preferred by us at Pocket-lint Towers is to get yourself a decent pair of headphones and...

Comfortable, good microphone, independent volume and mute buttons

You'll look like someone selling insurance or loans

There isn't much to say about the Sennheiser's apart from that they do what they set out to do; offer great sound without disturbing those around you

Good value headset

 

This is my first set of Sennheiser headsets. I've heard the term "infamous Sennheiser clamp" and it's real: during the first month or so of use the headband was like a tightly wound spring - I could definitely feel it squeezing my head. Not painful,...

I am not an audiophile so I can't comment on how precise the sound is; however, in my four years of gaming with these I have never had a problem with the sound quality. At normal volume both game sounds and VOIP participants were crisp and clearly...

The inline volume control. I've ran over the regular part of the cord due to its length many times without issue, but the connections at the volume control (which always sits well above the floor) are flaky ; After about three years of regular use...

SENNHEISER PC151

 

These are glorious. By far the best headset I've ever owned. Five years and going strong. Whenever these die, I'm probably going to get them again ; Very comfortable even over 12-18 hour sessions. They're large enough to provide immersive sound but...

The ear pads are not replaceable, and being five years old they're a bit icky at this point. I've tried washing them delicately with soap and water but it's just not enough. I've taken to covering them with socks, so this is no longer an issue ;...

you're paying for a name

 

Sennheiser used to build high quality components, but the junk that here being sold here on Newegg is just that; junk!

comfortable ; good sound quality

very poor build quality ; plastic began peeling off of head cushion after a couple years ; in-line volume control started to fail after about 1 year

Great... While it lasted

 

Worked great while it lasted

Minor wear and tear on these headphones and the microphone gave out after a little over 5 months. I even have the cord wrapped up so it wouldn't be stepped on. Sennheiser is a decent company but these headphones are very cheaply made. I wouldn't...

Wanted so much more

 

These headphones have great sound quality. They are very comfortable for on-ear headphones. They have a thick foam ring wrapped in soft fabric. I like that the cable is extra long

The headphones are heavy. So if I bend over while I'm wearing them, they fall off my head. Also, the microphone quit working after three months. I expected better quality from Sennheiser

Lasted Several months

 

I bought this because I was tired of the Logi and Creative headsets breaking within 3 months. That and there was a huge discount. The sound quality is decent

This headset managed to last twice as long as the others. I got about 7 months out of it. It was being held together with tape. I broke down and ordered a Logi but I paid over $100 for that one and it has good egg reviews

SENNHEISER PC151

 

I bought this headset in April 2011 and have been using it for a little more than a year with no problems. I use this headset for about 1-2 hours per day generally and have used it for a 6 hour period a few times. They're MUCH more comfortable than the...

Excellent sound, clear microphone and comfortable

They do get a little tight and uncomfortable after 4+ hours on my large head. For reference, my hat size is 7.5

Great Headphones

 

I wouldn't hesitate at all to buy another pair of these.

This is my second pair of these and I love them. They are light,you can wear them for very long periods of time and they will not hurt. The sound is great, I am not an audiophile. Bass sounds very good, sound is crystal clear. I am a gamer, I use them...
