What experts liked
Exclusively designed for gaming, the GAME ONE is Sennheiser’s response to the rest of the gaming accessory makers showing them how a gaming headset should be made.

If you have a smaller or average-sized head and want superior long-term comfort, a more engrossing audio experience, and an excellent mic, get the Sennheiser Game One.

At first blush the Game One is a good looking set of cans, even in spite of its plastic build.
- Engadget
The Game One is a good headset overall, featuring strong, in-game sound, a quality mic and an eye-catching design

The G4ME ONE sounds excellent, and at the top of the audio fidelity pile among gaming headsets.

The Game One have a well-balanced sound quality and an open design that grants them a more open soundstage than most gaming headsets we've reviewed so far.

What experts didn't like
Construction is a bit subpar even for Sennheiser. Everything is plastic and though it is of a good grade, would have been nice to see the use of metal somewhere.
- Armchair Empire
While this is an excellent headset, it isn't the best value option, pairing a premium performance with a premium price.

This design makes the Game One sound more open and spacious but allows sound to leak out, so people around you (and in voice chat) can hear what you’re listening to.

Unfortunately, it also has a high price point that might just put it out of reach of many gamers.
- Engadget
but it doesn’t really do anything to justify its premium price.

it also means it lacks several of the audio processing enhancements, mixing tricks, and simulated surround sound of headsets .
- PC Magazine

The mic is not removable, they're bulky and too unstable for sports.
- RTINGS.com

The final issue is that the mic and the 3m-long cable are non-removable.
