Sennheiser, maker of ear tingling audio products, is looking to give gamers an all in one option for those late night raids, TDMs and trash talking. The all new U 320 is geared towards players looking for pristine sound without having dedicated set ups for each system. The 320 features an adjustable boom mic with pro noise cancellation for superb communication between team mates and trolling the angry kids on XBL. Need a minute to talk privately in real life? Just swivel the mic up for instant mute. BAM!
To make sure the headset feels comfortable on any sized noggin, Sennheiser implemented their patented CircleFlex design. CircleFlex lets the cups adjust automatically to the ears, making the term one size fit all a reality. With most modern headsets, the dual volume can be adjusted in-line for ease and convenience.
The U 320 is set to drop this fall for $169.95 and will be compatible for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac. True multi platform at its best! Hit the break for the full press release geeks.
Sennheiser’s first multi-platform gaming headset: All gaming devices obey the new U 320
Old Lyme, Conn., September 26, 2012 — Audio specialist Sennheiser’s first multi platform headset, the U 320, conquers all gaming platforms. Whether it is PS3®, Mac, PC or Xbox 360® – the U 320 deliver consistent great sound on all devices and a unique, comfortable design makes gamers enjoy the experience even more.
This is great news for the gamer who wants to enjoy high-end gaming sound, but doesn’t want a different headset for each gaming device. Sennheiser’s new universal gaming headset, the U 320 works on all devices and offers great sound on every platform.
The average age of gamers today is 25 years old and ‘mature gamers’ play on consoles more than they play on PC. This is why Sennheiser created the U 320, offering gamers a consistent high-quality sound experience on every platform. So, if the kids are busy on the Xbox®, a user can just plug the headset into a Mac, PC or PS3® and enjoy time alone without disturbing others.
The U 320 is born out of Sennheiser’s 65-year experience pursuing premium sound, and is designed to emphasize the different types of distinctive gaming sounds. The sound spectrum of the U 320 is superbly amplified and the bass boost is easily adjusted to suit your preference of clear explosions, crashes or background music.
Comfort keeps the game on
Thanks to great comfort, the U 320 is wearable for as long as a gamer wants to enjoy the getaway from everyday life. The open-acoustic design helps keep a cool head, and the soft-padded unique CircleFlex™ design ensures that the ear pads adjust automatically, making the game experience a comfortable thrill.
“The U 320 ensures the best conditions for enjoying your favorite game. We’ve worked hard to develop a consistent sound, regardless of the platform, and believe that our efforts will help players everywhere enjoy a superior sound
experience,” says Product Manager Christian Ern of Sennheiser Communications.
The pro noise-canceling microphone reduces ambient noise for crystal-clear conversations with fellow players and friends, and allows the player to mute the microphone by simply raising the boom arm. Adjusting the dual volume control on the cable is just as easy, and the side tone switch monitors the voice while playing.
The U 320 multi platform gaming headset ships with a two-year warranty and will be available later this fall at a price of $169.95.
