With the GSP 550, Sennheiser presents an exceptionally expensive gaming headset that scores with its excellent workmanship, attractive design and excellent wearing comfort. The sound is also convincing over long distances. The only real drawback is the bass pushing into the foreground. The three modes that can be set in the software are hardly convincing. Only the E-Sport mode is acceptable. Even in normal mode, the bass is unpleasantly conspicuous – but much less powerful than in music and game mode. All in all, the sound is still of high quality. An above-average microphone and high-quality, easy-to-use software complete the package.
In our opinion, the GSP 550 from Sennheiser is certainly an above-average gaming headset, which is quite convincing in practice. It easily outshines many competitors and is well worth its price.
