The GSP 670 and GSP 370 are two gaming headsets from the well-known audio company Sennheiser. In essence, they’re pretty much the same in which they’re both wireless and provide decent sound quality. However, they do have noticeable differences. While the GSP 670 is packed with more features, the GSP 370 is more streamlined, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We pit the two against each other to see which one can deliver a better gaming experience overall.

Both the GSP 670 and GSP 370 boast the iconic Sennheiser look.
Despite the “gaming accents” here and there, the GSP 670 and GSP 370 are unmistakably Sennheiser. That says a lot since the company has a certain premium feel and design to their products.
The build quality of the Sennheiser GSP 670 is excellent. Its weight makes you confident that it’s a solid pair of cans that can survive bumps and accidents from time to time. At 0.88 lbs, many might assume it’s cumbersome for long gaming sessions, but it’s surprisingly comfy.
Meanwhile, the Sennheiser GSP 370 also has that sturdy and reliable feel. Even though it’s a lot cheaper by comparison, it doesn’t show in the build quality. Sennheiser didn’t skimp on anything here. It’s a lightweight contender, coming in at 0.62 lbs. That means it’s even easier on the head than the GSP 670.
The headsets’ design and cushions make for a snug fit. You’ll feel that they really cup your ears well, so much so that noise canceling is just a natural result.
You get what you pay for in terms of audio quality on both the Sennheiser GSP 670 and GSP 370.
As expected from a Sennheiser headset, the GSP 670 can provide a rich sound. It has a punchy bass and clear mids and highs. It can produce deep booms as needed and pick up subtle details. The sound doesn’t degrade even at loud levels too, so you can crank the volume up without worry. What you’re paying for here is quality audio, and that translates to a crackle-free and balanced experience. Take note that it sounds better when it’s connected via the USB dongle.
The Sennheiser GSP 370 somewhat falls short compared to the GSP 670, but it doesn’t disappoint. Though its bass is a bit on the weak side, the clarity of its mids and highs are on par with the GSP 670. However, you might find that it sounds a tad flatter than the GSP 670.
Both headsets support virtual surround sound, which you can toggle in the Sennheiser Gaming Suite (more on that later). The thing is, they don’t really deliver on this front. Particularly, the sound on the GSP 370 becomes sort of muffled and, at times, robotic. Still, the surround sound proves useful in gaming, providing positional audio cues that up your game.
Last but not least, the two have flip-to-mute microphones, which is really convenient.
Don’t expect the Sennheiser Gaming Suite to be packed with features.
The Sennheiser Gaming Suite is where you can tweak equalizer settings, toggle between surround sound and stereo, and all that jazz. You can also access the microphone settings there and adjust things like side tone and gain. While that may seem extensive enough on paper, it’s a bit lacking compared to other software like it.
One huge advantage the Sennheiser GSP 670 has over the GSP 370 is the game and chat audio balancer. For that, Sennheiser fitted it with two control wheels for easy access—one for game audio and another for chat, obviously. It even threw in a smart button to switch between presets on the fly and a pairing button. It’ll take some time getting used to the controls. After all, you’re going to fiddle with two wheels and two buttons on the left and right ear cups.
On the other hand, the Sennheiser GSP 370 keeps things simple with just a volume knob. A downside to that is you can’t balance game and chat audio on it.
When it comes to wireless headsets, battery life is a defining factor.
The battery life is where the Sennheiser GSP 370 really shines. It boasts up to 100 hours of gameplay on a single charge. You won’t be caught with a dead headset either since you can use it even while it’s plugged in.
In contrast, the Sennheiser GSP 670 has a shorter battery life. It can go between 16 and 20 hours. It’s decent, but it also seems unimpressive when put side by side with the GSP 370. In the GSP 670’s defense, you can also charge and use it at the same time.
Sennheiser crammed more features into the GSP 670, but the GSP 370 gives more value for your money.
There’s no doubt that the Sennheiser GSP 670 blows the GSP 370 out of the water when it comes to features and audio quality. Considering the price difference, it’d be weird if it didn’t. That said, we prefer the GSP 370 over the GSP 670. As gaming cans, it just delivers an overall better experience. That’s thanks to its 100-hour battery life, no-frill design, lighter weight, and affordability. Sure, surround sound isn’t that good, but it gets the job done. Besides, the GSP 670 doesn’t really deliver in this regard either.
The GSP 670 has more controls and a wide frequency response range, but the GSP 370 has a longer battery life—up to five times more, in fact.
The GSP 370 is rated to last up to 100 hours on a single charge, which is a lot longer than the average battery life you’d expect from gaming headsets.
Yes, both headsets support virtual 7.1 surround sound.
