Overview: The Sennheiser U 320 gaming headset is designed to
give you a better gaming experience. It works with all major gaming platforms,
including Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Mac. The
amplified headset's over-ear design and noise-canceling microphone allow you to
clearly communicate with teammates or opponents. The U 320 is
lightweight (10 ounces) and comfortable for hours of use.
Earcup Design: The U 320 over-ear headset features soft,
padded earcups mounted on Sennheiser's new patented CircleFlex system. This
ensures the earpads swivel around their base to instantly adjust to your ears.
The open-acoustic design keeps your head cool for longer playing time.
Amplified Sound: The built-in low-noise amplifier boosts the
audio for enhanced clarity. You can ear minute details in the game audio, as
well as clear communications with your teammates and opponents. The in-line
remote's dual volume control gives you the ability to independently adjust the
game volume and the level of gaming chat. The switchable bass boost adds to the
realism of your gaming experience. The Side Tone switch lets you monitor your
own voice in the headphones, if desired.
Noise-canceling Microphone: The built-in noise-canceling microphone
filters out background noise so you can hear
instructions and game talk clearly. The mic has a frequency response of
70-15kHz, a high sensitivity rating
(-38dBV/PA), and a uni-directional pickup pattern. The microphone is on a 5-1/2" boom that can
be rotated 180° so you can position it as you like, or swing it up and out of
the way when not using it. Raising the boom to the upright position
automatically engages the microphone mute.
Connections: The U 320's 16-foot long main cable has an
in-line remote and a USB Type A terminal, which plugs into the game console. Included with the headphones are two
audio cables: the game audio cable and the voice chat cable. The game audio
cable connects between the TV and the headphone cable's USB terminal, while the
voice chat cable connects between the in-line remote and the game controller.
Note: If the TV is connected to the game console via HDMI,
the TV must have RCA audio outputs for the headphones to pick up game audio,
or you must have an optional audio adapter from PS3 or Xbox.
