At first blush the Game One is a good looking set of cans, even in spite of its plastic build. PC Mag says it doesn't "feel cheap at all," and Trusted Reviews finds its red and black coloring makes more of a statement "than the grey and black headsets Sennheiser usually makes," with solid build quality to boot. But solid doesn't mean it feels unpleasant, with AVForums calling it "extremely comfortable" and SlashGear likens the Game One to "a lovely pair of earmuffs." PC Mag says it's "light enough to wear for long periods, and Trusted Reviews was able to play "long sessions of Titanfall and Battlefield 4 without needing to remove or adjust them at all."
And with such a "pleasantly balanced soundstage," you'll want to keep them on for hours, as IGN Middle East took special note of its "natural, organic sound" and "exceptional sound positioning." PC Mag says it's "fantastic for music," and while it "sounds similarly excellent" when gaming it's still a bit lacking in that department, missing useful features like "audio processing enhancements, mixing tricks, and simulated surround sound" found in rival headsets. Still, Hardware Heaven says that "everything sounds like we imagine it should" and that it maintains Sennheiser's reputation for "excellent quality."
While there are a few little things to nitpick in the Game One, it's still an overall great headset. However, many rival headsets offer similar features at a better price.
