Simply told, the PC38X improves your ability to hear opponents and perceive your environment. It provides greater stereo imagery and locational precision due to the angled drivers and open-back design, enabling you to spot enemy movement, gunshots, and oncoming threats exactly where they are coming from. The Sennheiser GSP 500 and 600, two of the best gaming headsets on the market, share a family with the drivers. Compared to the original PC37X, they provide superior low-end extensions, making your games and music feel more realistic than ever.
What’s in the box
- Drop + EPOS PC38X Gaming Headset
- 2 removable cables (PC and console)
- 2 pairs of earpads (mesh knit and velour)
- Drawstring travel pouch
- 2-year manufacturer’s warranty
How to wear
Put each ear cup directly on the ears and the headband over the center of your head. When using on-ear headphones, experiment with how the earpads rest on your ears to find a position that lets you hear the audio well without feeling too restricted or uncomfortable.
How to clean
- Carefully remove the earcups from the headset if they are detachable.
- Warm water should be added with a little soap.
- After dipping the towel in the water/soap mixture, squeeze out as much moisture as you can.
- Swipe your headset clean by making gentle circles.
How to remove earpads
Pull the ear cushion out of the headset. Ear cushions made of foam are easily removed. It may require a bit more work to sew firmly around the speaker or use a plastic adaptor to attach circumaural ear cushions, which wrap around your ear.
How to connect
All you need to do to connect is using the headphone jack on your phone if your headset supports 3.5mm connections.
In 7.1 surround sound?
You don’t need headphones with gimmicky 7.1 because you can utilize Dolby Atmos via consoles or PCs, which will sound better than the 7.1 included in certain headsets (source: have a headset with gimmicky 7.1, do not use)
In what ways does it differ from the PC37X?
I partly concur with Caleb that they don’t sound all that different from the PC37x. But they seem a tiny bit lighter on my head and weigh a little bit less, and the ear cushions are much cooler and cozier.
Why does the black version say epos while the yellow version says Sennheiser? Is there a distinction?
The parent business is Sennheiser, and when this device was developed, they launched a new gaming sub-brand named “epos.” Sennheiser will thus be written in the original colorway (yellow), and the revised branding will be written in the new colorway (black).
Which of these and the brand-new Epos H6 Pro is superior?
I don’t like the current EPOS brand, but you’ll have to study the specifications and check out the reviews. The PC38X’s driver is an improvement over the HD 5XX family of headphones, which were produced when Sennheiser was still active.
What’s their difference from the earlier Sennheiser PC 363d? I need to buy new cords because mine started to malfunction. I was pleased with how they performed.
Good headphones, they are. The cable on this one is replaceable if it becomes broken and is removable. This one is built to last. excellent performance
Why does yellow cost more? Aren’t they both the same?
These models are the same, in accordance with my knowledge and study. I was startled to learn that the model with the yellow accents is more expensive because I had heard that the all-black version was the more popular one.
Is there a version of this with a detachable microphone or an equal brand and model?
All Drop + Sennheiser headsets include an integrated, non-detachable microphone. To muffle a microphone, just flip it up or unhook only the microphone cord.
Does this require an adaptor to be connected to an amplifier with only one audio in port?
The headphones themselves include a single audio in port and two cables—one with a single auxillary for use as a headphone or controller headset and the other with two auxillaries for audio and speech for use as a headset on a computer. Hope this was useful.
How does the GSP 500 headset stack up against this one?
This one has an entirely open back, which implies a better sound stage. Additionally, this one looks far better than the GSP500, which resembles a baby Decepticon with Zika.c
In what ways do these differ from the PC360 headset? I’ve used it for around 8 years and still adore the headset, however the mic no longer stays in place.
Although I don’t know much about the 360, I adore this headset since the microphone stays in its position. The sound quality of the headphones doesn’t sound any worse than my H/T, even though I have an excellent midrange home theatre setup. They can still portray the majority of bass well and are quite detailed without being too bright.
Everything is functioning perfectly, however the cross talk, audio leak, or whatever you want to call it, is my biggest complaint with this headset. Is there a remedy for it?
These have been used on Xbox for more than six months with no problems and no complaints from other players. It must be a setting on your end, somewhere.
Is there a battery that can be recharged and placed on a cradle, or how does the battery get charged?
The Drop + Sennheiser PC38X is a wired headset that is powered by an input device, such as a computer, laptop, tablet, or gaming console. It does not require a battery.
Can I securely connect them to a JBS Labs atom amp to improve the sound? Or would the amplifier eventually ruin this headset?
You will have plenty of volume at lesser settings because your amp puts out 1w and headphones have a sensitivity of 109db. You should be alright unless you’re attempting to drown out other sounds with the headphones.
If linked to an x570 motherboard, would I require a dac/amp to obtain the best sound?
A decreased 28-ohm driver impedance makes it simple to drive the PC38X with any motherboard. Even a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device is capable of fully powering this gaming headset.
What kind of wire should I obtain, and can I get it on Amazon, to extend the 3 feet that it comes with?
In the box, the headset has a 3 foot and a 9 foot cord. If you’re using the 3ft with a device that has both a mic and a headset connector, you’ll need a splitter. The 9ft already has that. You need a TRSS extension if you want to extend the 3 feet so that it can carry microphone and headset audio.
