Test report on the epic H6Pro

Points Highlighted:

  • The Epos H6Pro comes in two variations: a closed and open acoustic model (the latter of which was used for this review). Both offer a sturdy, lightweight frame with a slim metal headband wrapped in soft padding. Thick plastic surrounds the adjustable portions, which connect at the earcups via a 2-axis hinge. The cups’ similar plastic and metal combo is offset by thick memory foam padding and the open acoustic design. At a glance, the H6Pro looks rather sleek.

  • Epos H6Pro – Design and Features

The earcups are nearly bare; besides the boom mic and a large circular volume dial, there aren’t any external buttons or switches. This helps in providing seamless lines, where the aesthetics bleed into one another for an overall uniformed appearance. There are some bits that stand out though. For instance, the left cup features a magnetized surface that secures either the detachable mic or a metal plated cover. Below that is where the headset’s cables connect – either a PC cable (that splits into the green/pink headset/mic plugs) or a 3.5mm cable for console and mobile device use. The right cup sports the volume dial that, without its slightly raised notches, would otherwise go unnoticed.

Epos H6Pro – Performance

Unique to this build is the open acoustic design. Each earcup has a breathable top half that mitigates some of the heat that builds up during play. They also allow the transfer of exterior sound, making it easier to hear whatever’s going on in a player’s immediate surroundings. Speaking of sound, the H6Pro has strong inner components. While I can’t speak on Epos’ claim of having the best transducers on the market, I can say that this headset produces high quality audio. The biggest explosions, the faintest footsteps, team chatter – it was possible to hear it all with minimal effort in most cases. Just plug in the H6Pro and go.

The H6Pro is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile devices, all via 3.5mm connection. No matter what platform I tested it on, it performed splendidly. I could easily communicate with other players in various games or through apps like Discord. The headset’s mic always picked up my voice. Unless of course, I wanted to mute myself by raising it up towards the headband. Lowering the mic back down would prompt a nice “click” letting me know I could be heard again.

While the H6Pro was great to use with various consoles, including the Switch, it performed best when connected to my PC. Just being able to fine tune the sound gave that set up the edge. And that’s without using the Epos Gaming Suite. This is partially due to the lack of external features on the H6Pro and how the Xbox One, Xbox X/S, PS4, and PS5 are designed.
