Premium audio in a meticulously designed package

The H6PRO headsets are further evidence of attention to detail and a total commitment to delivering the ultimate solution for this high end, performance-oriented gamer segment.

As well as a clear focus on superlative engineering to produce a gaming experience that minimizes audio fatigue, the remit was clearly to support this with the physical nature of the headset as well. The overall weight of the unit is around 20% lighter than the GSP 500 / 600 Series, with a slimmer headband, also featuring a memory foam solution with different densities depending on which part of the head is in contact with the band.

The 2-axis hinge structure also angles the earcups perfectly to fit different head shapes with a balanced pressure distribution, also significant for long term comfort and a secure fit. All the improvements to the headset’s structure have been achieved without compromising durability or the unmistakable tactile experience of premium materials and finishes – vital to underscore the overall quality. We all know what it feels like to handle “tacky” plastics or poorly finished metals, and the symbiosis of soothing alloys, sleek shapes and high-quality polymer finishes completes the design circle.

  • Exceptional audio clarity for ultimate performance
  • Design minimizes hearing fatigue in long sessions

Price: $/€ 179

The elongated “lift to mute” boom arm is a revised design from the GSP 600 Series and offers precise voice pick-up; at the same time, it can be removed should the gamer so choose, for example when streaming with a stand-alone microphone. The connection can be covered with the supplied cap and the clean lines of the headset remain undisrupted.

The H6PRO shares the EPOS commitment to durability. Like our other headsets, it is tested exhaustively. The production line is meticulously monitored, and units tested for audio balance and quality control. In the event there’s a wear problem, for example with the headset cable or microphone boom arm, then they are user replaceable.

How to Connect H6PRO

In order to connect your H6PRO, use either the provided console cable or PC cable. The console cable features a 1 x 3.5 mm jack, making the H6PRO compatible with consoles, whereas the PC cable features a 2 x 3.5 mm jack, enabling PC connectivity.

Ultimate high performance for games

At EPOS, we pursue the most lifelike and natural reproduction of sound that is possible, and the speaker system we use in the H6PRO headsets delivers a remarkably accurate profile – by design. The EPOS sound signature is balanced and natural, rather than overblown and aggressive.

For example, the H6PRO headsets are designed for gaming over the very longest sessions. When you’re playing a game, your brain is constantly bombarded with audio cues, and at the same time you may be listening to team-mates over a voice channel. The muddier and less natural the sound, the harder your brain must work to decipher the audio and the more you will suffer from “audio fatigue”. The H6PRO speaker system offers lifelike sound across the full audible frequency spectrum to minimize fatigue.

The more a speaker system boosts a frequency at the expense of another, the harder it is for your brain to gather the vital information from game audio. A great example of this is the masking effect of exaggerated bass. A huge rumble may feel great, but science tells us that over-loud bass frequencies have a masking effect on the midrange – which is where crucial sounds such as player footsteps and other environmental cues sit.

The speaker system is tuned to deliver the highest possible realism and audio clarity and is factory checked to ensure accuracy in left-right balance – this is another crucial piece of the puzzle. Poorly matched headset speakers will badly disrupt directional information. And for the most accurate reproduction of surround sound using binaural technologies, the upper frequency performance must also be extremely accurate.

Advantages of the Open Acoustic

The H6PRO Open is designed to deliver exceptional hi-fidelity performance with an audio signature that’s expansive and open. It’s perfect for gamers who like to be able to hear their own voice naturally while they play, rather than piped in through the earcup and mixed directly into the game audio, known as “sidetone” microphone monitoring. Instead, the ventilation holes in the earcup allow sound to breathe naturally in both directions, and gamers can hear both their own voice and other sound from the environment. This is often important for streamers, some of whom prefer to monitor themselves with an unprocessed tone of voice.

The ventilation also has the beneficial effect of helping keep ears cooler and allowing perspiration to exit naturally – supported by the choice of breathable materials in the ear cushions. For gamers who require more sound isolation due to a noisy environment or play in a room that is occasionally shared with others who don’t wish to be disturbed, then the Open Acoustic is not the best option – the H6PRO Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset will be more appropriate.

Multiplatform Compatibility

The analogue wired headset may be an old solution – but it’s a trusted one provided it’s matched with high quality audio hardware. It has wide compatibility, and is supplied with cables for use with devices that use 3.5mm 4-pole headset jacks (e.g. consoles, phones) or a pair of 3.5mm 3-pole jacks for separate mic input and audio output (e.g. many PCs). Plug it in and play – no batteries, no latency worries, no connections woes, all controlled by a simple analogue volume wheel.

For high performance binaural audio on PC, we recommend matching with one of the GSX series of external sound cards that supports EPOS Surround Sound, our proprietary solution for superior positional audio.

The headset of course will deliver great results from games that support surround sound on console, using the Xbox Windows Sonic system or Sony 3D Tempest Engine for the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 consoles. Simply plug into the audio jack on the controller or any compatible 3.5 mm jacks on any console or smartphone and enjoy surround sound in those games which support multichannel audio.
