Our take on the Sennheiser U320 by Crutchfield's David Brown
A multi-platform gaming headset
Hardcore gamers are often loyal to one platform. But that doesn't mean your gaming headphones have to be. The Sennheiser U320 headset is designed to work with a wide range of consoles and systems, including Xbox 360, PlayStation®3, Mac and PC. Regardless of your system, you'll enjoy clear, detailed dialogue and explosive sound effects with your favorite video games. This stereo headset envelops you in the sounds of the game, while the open-air design allows you to hear other players in the room.
Get in the ear of your opponent
What good is online gaming if you can't trash talk with your opponents? The U320 is equipped with a noise-canceling microphone arm, so every word of smack you talk will be clearly heard by your online adversaries. Flip the mic arm up for automatic muting, for when you need to confer with someone in the room. Need to turn up the volume on sound effects while turning down the volume on a mouthy opponent? The U320's dual volume control lets you adjust each independently, for a customized audio mix you can adjust on the fly.
Fewer breaks, more action
Nobody plays video games for only 15 minutes. So your headset needs to be built for marathon sessions. The U320 features Sennheiser's CircleFlex™ earpads, which adjust to your ears for a comfortable and secure fit. And the ventilated earcups keep your ears from overheating, so you won't need frequent breaks to pull this headset off and cool down. The 16-foot cable gives you plenty of room to move around or sit comfortably on your couch as you vanquish your foes and revel in just how good you sound doing it.
This was a birthday gift for my college gamer after his previous on started having problems with the mic. It turned out to be a great choice since it is compatible with all of his gaming systems. So far, this is a significant improvement over less expensive brand headset he had before.

Sennheiser U320 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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.
