Gamers looking for a 7.1 channel surround sound gaming headset might want to pay a bit of attention to Sennheiser’s latest release: The PC 163D and PC 333D headsets are designed to offer a completely immersive aural experience with sound from Dolby.
Both headsets feature 7.1 Dolby surround sound, integrated volume control and adjustable boom mics with noise cancellation. The 163D is an open style headset system, which makes it lightweight and comfortable, whereas the 333D uses a closed cup system for blocking out external noise. The 333D also adds a hinge on the right ear cup for talking with teammates, a microphone mute setting activated by raising the boom mic, and a carry case.
Both headsets are available now, with the 163D costing $280 and the 333D selling for $320.
