Sennhesier has unveiled a pair of new premium gaming headsets, the G4ME Zero and G4ME One, that the company claims will "deliver incredible sound quality".

The new models aren't dripping with features but do offer noise-cancelling mic's that will automatically mute when raised, making for one less thing to worry about in the heat of battle. They also conveniently incorporate the volume control into the earcup.

Sennheiser also emphasises the company's 70 year history in making high-end audio equipment and the fact that it is the only gaming headset manufacturer to make its own transducers.

Both headsets are full-size over the ear designs with thick, foldable and heavily padded headbands. What mainly distinguishes them is that the G4ME Zero uses an open-back design while the One has a closed-back design.

Both are also finished largely in white with black headbands, earcup padding and red accents. To our eyes they definitely look the part.

Available now from the Sennheiser website, the G4ME Zero headset costs £199.95 while the G4ME One is priced at £189.95. A pair of each will be hitting our labs imminently for a full review.

Sennheiser has also announced a continuation of its partnership with IO-Interactive that will mean the game development studio will use Sennheiser's recording equipment for its future games. The two company's have already collaborated on the game Hitman Absolutions.
