We’re huge fans of the EPOS brand, so much so that the EPOS | SENNEHISER GSP 602 is our headset of choice. Now though EPOS are moving into the next generation, taking what they learnt with the award-winning GSP 600 series and enhancing it with the new H6PRO Series.
Coming in both open and closed back designs, and compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, PC and more, the H6PRO promises to unleash the most exceptional next-generation acoustic gaming audio.
EPOS top-of-the-range offerings and built on the heritage of the multi-award winning GSP 600 Series, the H6PRO Series delivers exceptional, natural and expansive high-fidelity audio for the ultimate gaming audio experience.
As mentioned, it comes in both open and closed acoustic variants, with each offering up powerful sound, intuitive, detachable boom arms (much like that found on the H3 Hybrid), durable materials, long-lasting comfort and more. They take what was found in the acclaimed GAME ZERO and GSP 600 closed acoustic series, before slapping on some cool new ideas to ensure players get access to powerful gaming audio with superior passive noise reduction to let you zone in and focus exclusively on the game.
They come available in Sebring Black, Racing Green and Ghost White with the H6PRO Closed tuned to deliver a dynamic, powerful sound — all without compromising accuracy. In fact, it’s this closed back option which will fit best for gamers demanding accuracy, control and reliability.
The H6PRO Closed unleashes the game with an array of unparalleled features, including:
- Closed Acoustic Headset Design – Offering closed-back ear cups to eliminate environmental distractions, the H6PRO Closed enables players to sharpen their competitive edge by focusing on every audio detail.
- Maximum Comfort for Extended Gaming Sessions – For gamers seeking hours of intense focus, the H6PRO Closed is packed with features for long-wear gaming such as a lightweight build, padded headband, 2-axis adjustable ear cups and memory foam ear pads.
- Detachable Lift-to-Mute Microphone – Gamers simply raise the microphone to instantly mute all communications. The headset’s convenient magnetic boom arm – positioned for optimal voice pickup – can easily be removed and replaced with a sleek cover plate if using an external microphone.
- Compatibility with all Major Platforms – The H6PRO Closed includes exchangeable cables for the PC, Mac®, PS4™, PS5™, Xbox® Series X|S, Xbox® One and Nintendo Switch™. Gamers also can pair the headset with an EPOS external sound card to further enhance their gaming audio.
- Upgrading your audio on PC – Designed for any platform with analog wired outputs, the H6PRO Closed performs optimally with binaural headphone surround sound through the EPOS Gaming Suite, when paired with the GSX 300 external sound card.
But that’s not all and the H6PRO Open will let you experience open-back expansive, natural and high-fidelity audio. This one has been engineered with proprietary speakers for that signature EPOS sound, as the H6PRO Open raises the bar with an immersive, open and expansive soundstage.
Again you should expect natural and realistic game audio, but it’s the open acoustic headset which delivers the finest audio across the full frequency spectrum, with minimal listening fatigue. For gamers who want to have a high-end and natural audio experience or play in quiet surroundings, the H6PRO Open does it all.
There are obviously a couple of key differences between the open and closed variants though, with features sitting as:
- Open Acoustic Headset Design – Designed for gaming in quiet environments, the H6PRO Open delivers the ultimate high performance headset. Masterfully engineered transducers offer natural high-fidelity audio for the best-in-class audio experiences. The open acoustic design creates an immersive soundstage, delivering detailed audio reproduction for gaming.
- Speak Naturally, Listen Naturally – The open acoustic design enables gamers to hear their own voice with no stress and without needing to enable sidetone monitoring.
So what about the price? Well, you’ll be able to pick up either the EPOS H6PRO Open or Closed gaming headset from eposaudio.com/gaming. Expect to pay around £149 for them.
