There’s a lot that goes into selecting the right headphones, especially when you are into the details. There are factors like weight, size, and things like frequency responses. Believe it or not, color is another important factor that you should consider when purchasing headphones.
Also, if you want headphones that have advanced features, you could be asking questions like; Are they wireless? If so, how long does the battery last? How strong is the Bluetooth connection?
So many headphones are manufactured each and every day. Plus nowadays, headphones are coming with amazing features, reaching great heights up the advanced tech ladder- Yap, it’s a thing.
After looking at the demand on the market as well as customer reviews, two headphones in particular stood out. These are the Sennheiser GSP 670 and the Arctis pro wireless (the SteelSeries model).
Coming with some very powerful sound outputs and their balanced overall quality, these particular headphones continue to rise on the best headphone chart. This has pushed the popularity of these headphones from local to global.
With their popularity, some people find it very difficult to choose between the two, mainly because most of their characteristics seem to match.
If you want to know which one of these will be perfect for you, you have come to the right place. We have put together some of their main specifications on their sound quality as well as their sound properties in each of them.
To make things a little simple for you, we have described the differences and the similarities that you should expert from these two.
Before we dive into the whole information, I want to start you off by highlighting some of the main characteristics that these two headphones have.
Sennheiser GSP 670 vs Arctis Pro Wireless headphones- Overview
First of all, I should say that both of these headphones offer an amazing sound quality and good performance.
These models are over-the-ear headphones that come with a lot of great features like an open back design which gives space to allow aeration of the ears. In other words, they let your ears breathe. It
Also, these headphones feature a detachable cable, means that they can simply be used wirelessly, thanks to the strong Bluetooth connection properties.
As mentioned right above, these headphones have built in Bluetooth versions, 5 in then Sennheiser while the Arctis run on a lower Bluetooth version of 4.1, which means that the Sennheiser have a better connection with a strong and wider coverage.
Also, since they can both be used wirelessly, I’m sure you want to know about the power. Well, both of these headphones have the same battery life of 20 hours, which you can easily monitor on the battery level indicators.
When the battery runs out, you have to charge the headphones for a maximum of two hours. On that note, always make sure that you don’t overcharge or undercharge (I’m not sure if the second one is a real word) your headphones as this can shorten the batteries’ lifespan in the long run.
On sound quality, let’s start with the impedance. For those who aren’t familiar with this term, it is simply defined as the level of clarity and detail in speakers or headphones. Technically, the headphones that have a high impedance implies that they have a much clearer sound as compared to those with a smaller one. This characteristic is measured in Ohms.
As of the above defined impedance, the Sennheiser GSP 670 headphones have an impedance of 28 ohms, while the Arctis pro wireless headphones have a much higher impedance of 32 Ohms, giving the Arctis headphones a 4 ohms advantage and with it, a higher degree of clarity and detail.
Also, both of these headphones come with a passive noise reduction property. This characteristic is mainly designed to limit the amount of outside noises that you will hear when you are enjoying your favorite music.
On top of that, the frequency response is another very important factor that you should always be looking for in headphones.
Speaking of, I wasn’t very impressed with the frequency range that the Sennheiser headphones have. The range from the lowest to the highest frequency responses is 10 Hz to 23000 Hz respectively, while the Arctis pro wireless headphones have a range that starts from 10 Hz all the way to 40000, which obviously means that the Arctis headphones provide a much better frequency range.
Usually, in the world of audiophiles, DJs or music producers, the theory behind frequency range goes like this; the wider the frequency range, the more you will be able to distinguish one sound from the other. In other words, the highs, mids and lows are spread out better in such headphones.
As such, I would recommend the Arctis for studio works or to anyone who wants to do some detailed sound mixing.
Besides the frequency, we have the driver unit size, which is another essential part that’s going to factor in on your decision to buy one of these two.
That being said, the driver unit size in the Sennheiser headphones is about 50 mm, while the Arctis headphones have a lower driver unit size of 40 mm.
Now that we have looked at the various features in both of these headphones, below are the advantages of having each of these headphones over the other.
Besides the Driver unit size, the Arctis pro headphones are equipped with a neodymium which is designed to add more quality to your music experience.
Advantages of the Sennheiser GSP 670 over the Arctis Pro Wireless headphones
Driver Unit Size
This is one of the first advantages that put our Sennheiser on the spotlight (and probably the most important feature)
For people that have never heard of this feature, I’m sure this all sounds like gibberish to you. Well, for your sake, let me define it for you.
In Simple terms, the driver unit is basically the number of drivers which are responsible for giving you out the sound that you need.
Basically, the headphones that have more drivers will give you a higher and more balanced sound because each driver will be assigned a different audio quality (Bass, mids, treble), because over-the-ear headphones are much bigger than ear buds, they have more drivers (normally four drivers than two in ear buds).
As of the size of the drivers, the ones in the Sennheiser are about 50 mm while the Arctis pro has 40 mm drivers, which implies that the Sennheiser will give you a more balanced sound quality.
Newer Bluetooth Version
Ever heard the expression “the newer, the better”? Well, this is clearly an expression that can’t be used at the wine table, but can definitely be used to describe the Bluetooth.
The Arctis pro wireless headphones have a Bluetooth version of 4.1, which is great but not better than these Sennheiser headphones that come with a Bluetooth version of 5. This means that the Sennheiser headphones have a faster, stronger connection which also has a better coverage.
Advantages of the Arctis pro Wireless headphones over the Sennheiser GSP 670 headphones
Do you remember when we talked about frequency ranges just a minute ago? This is the first advantage that the Arctis has, over the Sennheiser ones.
As we mentioned before, the Arctis headphones have a frequency response which ranges from 10 Hz to about 40000 Hz (lowest to highest respectively), while the range in the Sennheiser goes from 10 Hz which is the lowest, to only about 23000 Hz. This is only slightly above half of the range in the Arctis pro. The 17000 Hz difference is a lot of time.
One thing we love about the Arctis headphones, which most likely gives them a great advantage, is that they come with a removable battery. This allows us to remove the battery and replace it with a new one when the old battery wears out.
I mean, batteries wear out at some point. They don’t give you the same amount of usage time as they did when they were bought, after you keep them for let’s say, a year. This is normal and it happens to every battery.
The Sennheiser headphones, however, do not have a removable battery, so when the battery life has completely deteriorated, you have to start budgeting for a new pair of headphones all over again.
This is another important feature that can influence your decision. Just in case you don’t know what microphone sensitivity is, it is simply defined as the amount of sound frequencies that a microphone can pick up at a time.
Generally, the microphone that has the higher sensitivity is the one that will pick up more sounds than the one with a lower sensitivity. The Arctis have a sensitivity of 47 dBV/Pa while the Sennheiser headphones have a sensitivity of 38 dBV/Pa. As such, the Arctis pro wireless headphones get the cake on this one.
So, if you are a person that is into video-calling, or things that use mic more, like online gaming or simple video recording, the Arctis headphones should be you first choice. However, while the Sennheiser may have a lower sensitivity, they don’t sound bad at all.
