EPOS’ gaming headset line-up, including the GSP 370 wireless headset, is said to “deliver powerful, visceral experiences for unsurpassed amounts of in-game immersion and flow”, and while that may be a lot of buzzwords to take in all at once, there’s no doubt that their headsets are a high quality, if not a bit expensive, proposition.
The GSP 370 offers up a tantalising 100 hours of gaming headset goodness, and while I didn’t put it on a specific timer after a full charge, I absolutely used the headset for a few hours per evening over a 2-3 week period and found that it didn’t need a recharge over all of that time. Considering how other headsets have had me running to find a charging cable at plenty of inopportune moments in the middle of a gaming session, I can’t stress how nice it is to not stress about that happening. It’s the biggest feature of the GSP 370 and, it nails it.
Of course, 100 hours of battery life is meaningless if it doesn’t sound good, but thankfully EPOS has that covered. Noise cancelling isn’t completely perfect but I did notice an improvement compared to say, my $100 headset that I normally use on a regular basis to chat with my squad mates. The crisp audio of booming dungeon-crawling soundtrack in Blightbound came through crystal clear, and I was able to hear the footsteps of my opponents in Valorant with pinpoint accuracy on their location, so I was never surprised by an unwanted flanking. The pop-tastic chaos surrounding Fall Guys also sounded brilliant, and I had no issues hearing the banter of my friends, while my voice also came through quite clearly on their end.
For those who are more into tinkering to ensure their sound experience is absolutely perfect, downloading the EPOS Gaming Suite for your PC allows you to switch between stereo and 7.1 surround sound, as well as select from pre-programmed equalisation options or create your own. On top of that, you can control the level of reverb on surround sound. Overall, if you’re willing to spend the time adjusting the GSP 370 just right, you can create a pretty optimal sound experience.
I have a huge head (not surprising given the ego cased within), and I was pleasantly surprised that the headset was adjustable enough that it fit around my larger-than-usual noggin and was quite comfortable to wear for long periods of time. It doesn’t look as colourful or “sexy” as some other headsets on the market, but that is not something that has ever phased me when it comes to this kind of accessory. I even like the small light that you can check to see how much power you have left before you need to recharge – a nice touch.
While the GSP 670 boasts some more features, you’ll pay a bit more to access the slightly more advanced product, which makes the GSP 370 a good choice for gamers who want a high-quality headset that lasts a very long time without charging. It’s still a little expensive at $349 AUD, but when you play as many video games as I do, it’s a solid choice that doesn’t run out of charge quickly, and that may be exactly what you’re looking for.
