Sennheiser has announced the PC 373D, its latest headset for PC gamers featuring 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound and a copious amount of velvet. The new flagship headset comes with a noise-canceling microphone and what Sennheiser is calling an "optional noise reduction algorithm." There are also plush velvet ear pads over the aluminum ear cups, and volume controls are embedded in the right ear cup. The company says the aluminum will help keep your ears cool, while the velvet will cover them in a luxurious fabric (I added the last part).
The PC 373D also includes a Surround Dongle that lets you switch between stereo and surround sound at the press of a button. You can also raise the boom arm to mute your mic, which is a nice touch, and a software equalizer lets you switch between preprogrammed modes for e-sports, gaming, and music. Sennheiser says the PC 373D will be available this week for $259.99 on its website.
