Is the PC37X open-back or closed-back?The PC37X is an open-back headset.
This means that there is no physical structure that envelops the back of the drivers. In general, open-back headphones have a superior soundstage when compared with closed-back headphones. This is because a closed ear cup produces reflections in the sound. This means the perceived location of a sound is more precise, which is specifically important in gaming (think CS:GO).

What are the drivers in the PC37X? How is the sound quality?
The Massdrop x Sennheiser PC37X uses the same drivers as the Sennheiser PC 373D.
Regarding sound quality, the PC37X is very comparable (if not superior to) audiophile headphones in the same price point, and it sounds better than the vast majority of gaming headsets.

How is the mic quality?
The PC37X has one of the best mics among headsets that we’ve tested. Most complaints for gaming headset mics are a result of either hardware issues (manufacturers using cheaper parts or making suboptimal design decisions) or software issues (manufacturers adding an on-board soundcard or proprietary software that performs poorly). On the hardware side, the PC37X contains a mic that is designed specifically by Sennheiser (which has extensive experience as a microphone developer and manufacturer) for high-volume, low-distance recording. On the software side, the PC37X has no signal processing and outputs straight into the mic jack on your motherboard or soundcard, therefore avoiding any potential issues.

Is the cable removable?
Yes, the cable is removable and replaceable.

I plugged in the PC37X and the sound or mic doesn’t sound right/good?
Most issues that users have experienced are due to problems with their computer hardware or software setups. Unfortunately, it can be hard to diagnose the specific reason or root cause. @acey for example has written a reply to help solve one user’s problems (*1).
One thing to mention is that, it’s generally recommended to plug the headset directly into the sound card (as opposed to using front panel audio ports) in order to minimize interference.

Does the PC37X work for console gaming (PS4, Xbox One, etc.) or mobile or mac?
Yes, however, you will need an adapter or a separate cable. The included cable ends in two jacks (headphone & microphone) whereas most consoles/phones have one port that takes a TRRS (4 pole) AHJ/CTIA standard 3.5mm jack.

If you want an adapter, something similar to this one (*2) should work. For Macs, something similar to this one (*3) should work.

If you want something more sleek, you can get a cable that plugs straight into the headset and ends with a TRRS jack. Something similar to this one (*4) would work.

Is there a limited amount of units available?
Yes, for the second production run, we are limited to 600 units. We are currently working with Sennheiser to increase the limit.

Will this drop be available internationally? What will be the shipping price internationally?
Yes, the drop will be available to all international countries that Massdrop ships to. International shipping will be around $15.


We will continue to add to the FAQ as more questions arise.

The product page says it will end each day. Does that mean it will essentially last forever?

So far. They have the PC37X actually in-stock, so you don’t have to wait for Sennheiser to manufacture each “drop” before distribution. I still use mine almost daily.
Will my Mixamp from my Astro A40 make a difference or plugging straight through my PS4 controller fine?
hey i was just wondering if its possible to change the cable on the pc 37x gaming headphones from the split cable
(mic and headset seperate) to being able to use one single cable so it can easily be used on consoles like the xbox one ?
Is thisone better gaming sound than dt 990 or hd 6xx ?
I do not think that

For gaming, no? Just get the PC37x - You won't notice a huge difference with directional sound when it comes to gaming in regards to the 6xx or DT990 that will give you an advantage. The built in mic with auto mute when sliding it up is so useful.

Sounds is just one thing.. Awareness is another huge factor when it comes to gaming :) I used low/mid tier headphones for about 10-15+ years and it's not that big of a difference.

If anything get the 6xx to add to your music collection, but I feel like your he 4xx covers that since it has more bass response and sounds more fun. I really want those to drop again!

The sound is not going to beat your audiophile gear, but the gaming features it has packed in is what makes this a worthy buy, especially for gamers. The mic+mute, the positional audio (not bad) and the volume adjuster are things that aren't found on the 6XX or 990.
When in use are these noticeably louder then closed earphones for people in the same room or a room down? I don't play with the sound cranked but I want to make sure that they won't wake people up or they are quiet so people don't hear whats going on in the head phones.

For people in the same room, yes. For people a room down, unlikely. These are open-back, not closed-back, so there is more sound leaking (both from the headphones and into the headphones from the room). It usually isn't an issue, I've used open-back headphones daily for a few years with no complaints from people sitting near me, as long as the sound is turned to uncomfortable levels.

For example, If my headset is at full blast and I leave my headset on the desk with mumble going. I can hear my friends talking in the room next to me, but this is with the both room doors open.

For your sake, you should be fine.
When is Massdrop going to make a drop for Replacement Earcups for these models?
What is the difference between these and the Game One? Is one higher in quality than the other?
can this be used to talk through skype?
Taos
I used this on Discord and it's pretty good. So, I'm sure it will work well on skype too.
im going on vacation on june 9, if i buy it today, and put in the most expensive shipping, will i get it before the 9?
Should I buy these or the hyper x cloud alphas? Having a hard time deciding!
chris95
These for sure. HyperX Cloud's sound nothing close to Sennheisers
What EQ settings are you guys using? I feel like the mids are a bit congested, and I can't seem to find an eq setting that can fix it properly.
How dose it do with mobile
