Sennheiser's X 320 gaming headphones come with top of the line audio quality but their awkward fit and price tag hold them back.Late last year I went on the hunt for a set of gaming headphones. As luck would have it, our gaming editor had a set of Turtle Beach's X12 sitting on his desk waiting to be reviewed. Spotting an opportunity, I struck a deal that had me borrowing the X12 for a couple of weeks in exchange for the review writing duties.It turned out the X12 passed muster, so I bought a set for my kid as a Christmas present and wrote the review. Case closed, I thought. Wrong. Somehow, I have acquired four new models of gaming headsets for review.One of the headsets in question is the Sennheiser X 320. Now, I'll admit that, were I forced to choose headphone products from just one company for the rest of my life, I would most certainly pick Sennheiser -there's just something about Sennheiser's sound signature that suits my taste. With that said, I don't necessarily think that everything the company makes is gold. A lot goes into making a successful headphone and things get even trickier when you're talking about a gaming headset.
Wireless? Pah, who needs it!? But seriously, do we really need it for headphones?Well, actually we do. Sennheiser's latest set of headphones - the X 320 - are designed to be used with the Xbox 360, hence the obvious name similarity. And after a few minutes with them you might just be wishing that there was a wireless option available.There are no less than three set of wires to contend with: one that goes straight from the headphones to the console, one that plugs into your TV, providing audio, and another wire that you plug into the gamepad to enable voice chat. At times it feels like the spaghetti junction of wires - you would think Sennheiser might have tried to come up with some sort of smarter integrated solution that didn't involve multiple wire trails. Thanks to the clear instructions, it's easy to connect everything and get started immediately. The length of the main cable is very long, so you can sit pretty far away from the screen. The only problem with setting up the Sennheiser X 320 is its use of stereo audio connectors. Not all modern TVs come with stereo inputs, so if this is the case you'll need to buy the optional audio adapter for the Xbox 360.
