When it comes to gaming, it can be difficult to figure out which headset is the right one for you. Everyone has different needs and wants when it comes to purchasing a new gaming headset, and with so many on the market, it can be a minefield. That’s why we’re keen to give a breakdown on two brilliant options from EPOS, to make that decision a little bit easier for you.
H6PRO brings powerful, distraction-free audio
First up, the H6PRO, which boasts high quality audio from the jump. We love that this one provides some of the clearest audio we’ve heard in some time, no matter how high we pump the volume up. It doesn’t compromise clarity, so that you’re able to soak up immersive gameplay moments.
The H6PRO has also been designed with weight and comfort in mind. It’s sleek and lightweight, so it doesn’t bug you even after a lengthy playtime. Even the memory foam earpads have been given some extra TLC, with 2-axis hinges for ideal ear cup positioning that provide an acoustic seal and a comfy fit, no matter how big your head is (and mine is particularly big, not to brag).
What makes the H6PRO even more appealing is the fact that you can grab them as open or closed acoustic, depending on what you’re looking for. Open is acoustically optimized for a wider soundstage and natural gaming audio optimal for quiet environments or when you want to stay aware of your surroundings, while closed provides exceptional audio isolation for ultimate performance, along with passive noise-cancelling for those more intense multiplayer sessions that require your focus. You can decide which is more appropriate based on your personal preferences, the game you play and the environment you’re playing in.
To bring that extra Aussie charm, both headsets are available in Green & Gold, along with the more traditional and slick black or white.
Thinking wireless versatility? Think the H3PRO Hybrid
If you’re looking for wireless freedom, you want to look at the H3PRO Hybrid, which offers a low latency wireless gaming experience through the use of a secure, lag-free wireless dongle. Precision audio is on offer here as well, with a built-in slider to adjust active noise cancellation, making it make it easier for you to follow a conversation with your teammates.
There’s a deep bass that really sounds punchy when listening to music or experiencing an intense video game moment; it also offers 7.1 Surround Sound, adding to the chaos and majesty of a good session of Elden Ring with epic RPG soundtrack popping off in the background, or allowing you to hear the pitter-patter of enemy’s footsteps in Fortnite.
“… this beauty has an elegance to its design that would work across multiple functions, not just gaming.”
It promises up to 19 hours of wireless gaming without needing a charge, and from my time spent with the headset I’d say that’s anecdotally true. I only found myself needing to charge it about once every few days, and I was wearing it often both for work and for gaming in the evenings. So no need to worry about dropping out of the squad action during a key moment.
The H3PRO Hybrid also feels more premium than other gaming headsets available; while others sometimes look and feel almost like toys, this beauty has an elegance to its design that would work across multiple functions, not just gaming. The magnetic microphone is even detachable, so if you aren’t looking to party up you don’t have to worry about it getting in the way or looking weird when traveling on public transport.
With multiple connection options, it also works across any platform you want, so it doesn’t matter if you’re on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Switch, Mac or even your phone… anything that uses Bluetooth and this one is good to go, so it saves you worrying about compatibility across all of your devices.
The headset is also available in Green & Gold, along with black or white.
Audio designed for your brain
One thing that is unique to EPOS headsets is the use of EPOS BrainAdaptTM technology. It’s part of their design process that basically leads with the principle that you listen with your brain, not your ears. Bear with me. Your brain is what is listening and interpreting sound cues in video games that alerts your “inner gamer” to what’s going on. That’s why we can be specifically attuned to key gameplay moments.
EPOS goes a step further using decades of psychoacoustic research through the Demant Group. By modelling and measuring brain performance in various noise contexts, EPOS can prove that the passive noise reduction of the H6PRO Closed headset prevents you from missing crucial words from team-mates and optimises your listening effort. I know I’d love less fatigue when I’m playing video games, especially after a long day at work, so whatever audio magic they’re able to work to enhance my performance, I’m here for it.
Whatever your gaming audio needs are, EPOS has you covered; their range of headset options are always growing, and you can find them here.
