Review – best gaming headset: EPOS H6PRO Closed

EPOS H6PRO

If you’re looking for the best gaming headset on the market, EPOS H6PRO Series could easily be the one you’re looking for. 

Jaxon tested the EPOS H6PRO in different games and it ranks as one of the best gaming headsets I’ve tried.

In short: The EPOS H6PRO test has very detailed gaming audio (especially for casual gamers), passive noise reduction (for that immersion), and a durable microphone with very crisp sound which makes it one of the best gaming headsets on the market right now. 

Let’s dive into a EPOS H6PRO test.

EPOS H6PRO Review: The Closed EPOS H6PRO headset is one of the best gaming headsets on the market for the casual gamer.

What is in the EPOS H6PRO box

The H6PRO unboxing is very straightforward. The box contains:

  • The H6PRO headset itself (surprise).
  • A cable for PC connection.
  • A cable for controller connection 
  • … and the usual boring manuals.

You straight away notice the build quality that looks and feels expensive and – more importantly – durable. For a retail price of $179, you would expect it to be one of the best headsets on the market, though.

In the box: EPOS H6PRO comes with two cables (one for PC, one for console)

EPOS H6PRO sound quality is great

I’m a 33-year-old avid gamer who plays games daily, and I’ve been enjoying both competitive FPS games and more casual games for the past 15 years. 

I’ve tried 20-30 different headsets before testing the EPOS H6PRO. Always on the lookout for the best gaming headset. 

But, what I’ve realized is that different headsets have separate features, depending on what you’re looking for:

  • Remarkable treble (high-pitch notes): For competitive FPS games (making you able to hear the opponent’s footsteps clearly)
  • Great bass: If you like explosions and that kind of music
  • Noise-cancellation: Good for immersion, bad for fathers who need to hear the baby crying in the room next door.

… and the list goes on with wireless vs. chorded, over/on-ear, et cetera.

In my review of EPOS H6PRO I found that the headset offers a bit of everything. 

Not necessarily for EVERYONE

I’ve tested the EPOS H6PRO in different sound settings: In F1 Manager 2022, CS:GO, League of Legends and I’ve been listening YouTube movies throughout the test.

When compared to a mid-range headset like the HyperX Cloud II, the sound of the H6PRO is stunning. I’m not a sound engineer, so I’m not able to go into technical details about the ranges, the H6PRO provides.

But it’s clear that the level of little sound detail appears much clearer compared to other headsets I’ve tried: Explosions in shooters is cinema-like immersing and realistic and the engine sound inferno at the beginning of a race in F1 Manager sounds perfectly piercing in the H6PRO.

Because of the high bass, I wouldn’t necessarily go for the H6PRO, if I solely was playing competitive FPS games. I would instead choose a headset with more distant high-pitch notes. 

But for the casual gamer (who might play a couple of competitive rounds from time to time) the EPOS H6PRO is one of the best gaming headsets on the market right now.

The microphone on the In the box: EPOS H6PRO is detachable. If you use an external mic, you can apply a cover plate (included).

Easy controls and crisp microphone

The sound level can be controlled on a wheel of the side of the H6PRO – you simply spin an integrated wheel. If you want to mute yourself, you simply flip the microphone to a vertical position. Easy.

The microphone quality is great, but if you’re using an external table-stand microphone like one of those fancy influencers, there’s a cover plate for the detachable microphone. 

The H6PRO comes with a cable that is compatible with Mac, PS4, PS5, Xbox, and all other devices you might have laying around. 

Or if you want to go the extra mile you can also attach the H6PRO to the EPOS GSX 300 external sound card for binaural headphone surround sound.

The EPOS H6PRO CLOSED is designed with a padded headband with memory foam. It does get a bit warm after hours of gaming.

EPOS H6PRO build-quality – prepare for warm ears

An important part of those hour-long gaming sessions is the comfort, the headphones provide. The H6PRO (closed edition) has closed-back ear cups and a lightweight build with a padded headband. The headband is 2-axis adjustable and the pads are made of soft memory foam.

After using the H6PRO for a 4-hour long gaming session and putting on my afformentioned HyperX Cloud II (with leather cushions), the H6PRO feels a bit heavy and warm compared to the Cloud II.

The closed-back ear cups do eliminate environmental distractions, but you’ll need to be prepared for warm ears.

The headset itself fits my big head very well, and I didn’t feel any discomfort wearing it for four hours straight. This, obviously is very individual, as your head might not be as supersized as mine.

EPOS H6PRO is the best gaming headset for the casual gamer

All-in-all, I’m amazed by the performance of the EPOS H6PRO. If you’re a casual gamer who likes to immerse yourselves for hours, the light-and-tight earcups combined with passive noise reduction will be something for you. 

The tradeoff for the air-tight earcups, however, is warm ears after hours of gaming. 

The sound quality is great, and I’m not hesitating to rank the EPOS H6PRO as one of the best headsets for the casual gamer.

Now, EPOS, when do you make a wireless edition?!

The EPOS H6PRO CLOSED also comes in a black edition.
