Old Lyme, Connecticut, January 2005 — At this year’s CES trade show in Las Vegas, Sennheiser Communications is introducing a new multimedia headset specially designed for — and with — professional, computer eSport Gamers.
It is simply the ultimate headset for professional Gamers who only want the best for serious on-line match play, competition, or LAN party. Sennheiser Communications has quickly become established in the gaming scene. As a market leader for PC gaming headsets the new PC 160 model completes the portfolio as the top-of-line product. The new headset is specially designed for professional gamers, and developed in close cooperation with people from SK-Gaming, the best, and most successful gaming team worldwide. The members of SK have provided detailed input and requirements for the ultimate gaming headset. “Before you see, you hear” is their philosophy — meaning that in a computer game, you will get wiped-out of the game if you don’t listen. The result from Sennheiser Communications is a headset with XXL-size speakers and an open-air speaker system that provide superior sound acoustics.
“This headset will be at the top of every pro gamer’s wish list,” says Bill Whearty, Vice President, Sennheiser Communications at Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, Old Lyme, CT — and he continues, “this headset is made for gaming, the sound is superior, it’s comfortable to wear, and it’s made so robust that it can withstand also a close, dense and even match,” said Whearty, knowing how players treat their computer peripherals in the middle of a Counter Strike or War Craft battlefield.
The PC 160 provides true-to-life sound for superior gaming performance, it also features large speakers with newly designed ear caps, improved, more durable microphone housing, and stronger cable, as well as leatherette headband pad.
