Following on from the highly-praised EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 600, EPOS has announced the GSP 601 and 602 headsets.
EPOS are a new brand in the gaming world, but their parent company, Sennheiser, has a pedigree spanning decades of high-end audio innovation. Positioning itself as the gaming arm of Sennheiser’s audio division, EPOS has already made waves with the excellent GSP 600 gaming headset.
Expanding this range, the GSP 601 and 602 share the same durable design and best-in-class audio technology, bringing in a fresh touch of colour and style.
Featuring ergonomic leatherette earpads, the GSP 600 series also has adjustable pressure, both for comfort and ensuring proper sound attenuation and noise isolation, no matter how loud the background. The 600 series is quite a large headset, with a well-padded oversized headband that looks to be extremely comfortable.
The GSP 601 boasts sleek white features paired with cool black accents and interchangeable copper-coloured side plates.
The GSP 602 adds unique flair with gloss navy exteriors set against bold brandy-coloured around-ear coupling pads.
From what is a go-to manufacturer of headphones, we expect the sound quality to be superb. I’ve tried loads of Sennheiser headphones over the years, and the HD 25 is still my number one choice for DJ headphones decades after they first released. How well they translate their sound to a gaming environment remains to be seen, as gamers tend to prefer a slightly different audio tune to music lovers.
Spaciousness, accentuated bass and excellent separation and clarity of higher frequencies like footsteps are the current meta when it comes to gaming audio. How well they combine their audio tune and voice comms will be key to their success in the highly-competitive gaming audio market. Seeing how EPOS is a branch of Sennheiser, though, I have no doubt the GSP 600 will be on point.
Multiple device compatibility is assured thanks to the 3.5mm single and dual connections (for PC). Whether you game on console, mobile or PC, the GSP 600 series should have you covered as long as you have a 3.5mm input on your device.
If you’re in the market for a new headset, the EPOS 600 series looks to be well worth the consideration.
The EPOS | SENNHEISER GSP 601 and GSP 602 are available from eposaudio.com/gaming, competitively priced at £199.
