If you haven’t heard of Drop before they are a really cool company that partners will well known brands to release products at an affordable price. They are probably more well known for their keyboard collaborations, but their other big category is audio. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Drop + Sennheiser PC38X Gaming Headset. I’m sure you’ve heard of Sennheiser and know their reputation for great audio products. The PC38X is an successor to the PC37X which Drop also did in collaboration with Sennheiser. This is basically a no-frills analog gaming headset, so no wireless connectivity, USB sound card, or RGB lighting. It all comes down to comfort and performance and knowing the reputation that Sennheiser for audio I am pretty excited to see what this headset can do. Let’s take a look…
The PC38X comes in a pretty plain box that just says PC38X and Drop + Sennheiser on it. There is a small sticker on the side that actually lets you know what is inside.
Getting everything out of the box we have the PC38X gaming headset, two sets of cables, extra set of velour earpads, user’s guide, welcome note, and a nice travel pouch. As far as the two cables are concerned there is a 1.5-meter cable with a TRSS plug for mobile devices and consoles and then a longer (2.5-meter) cable with a pair of 3.5mm plugs for headphone and microphone connections. Both of these cables are nicely braided with a yellow accent that matches the rest of the headset.
