The helmet gaming Epos H6PRO is presented as a high-end wired model for the most demanding gamers. This model is available in an open version and a second closed version, which we tested for several weeks.
The H6PRO is fully plug&play and is content with this with a jack plug. The design is particularly striking and imposing, however the emphasis seems to have been placed on comfort and build quality. The brand image requires, this model is offered at the very high price of 180 euros.

Epos H6 Pro CameraDesign and ergonomics
The Epos H6PRO is more discreet than the brand’s previous models. However, it retains an assertive design without going overboard on the typical elements. gaming. Thus, this new model does not have integrated RGB lighting and remains particularly sober in this midnight blue livery.
The metal headband features generous foam and is completely covered in black leatherette. This bow is intended to be of a very classic design with a slide system that must be graduated in order to maintain the correct fit over time. The breadth offered by this fit system also allows the H6PRO to be “compatible” with the largest skulls.
Although it doesn’t allow the ear cups to fold to 90°, the H6PRO offers a slight movement in this axis to flatten the bells around the ears. This double articulation also allows for generous travel on the horizontal axis to maximize comfort and sound reproduction.
The very qualitative aspect of the helmet continues at the level of the ear muffs. The latter have a generous shape memory foam covered with a synthetic leather lining. The part in contact with the skin, on the other hand, has a layer of suede-like fabric that somewhat improves comfort.
When it comes to comfort, though, the H6PRO isn’t without its faults. If its generous headband and joints allow a good adaptation to the morphology of each one, the auricles are not so convincing. These put too much pressure around the ears, which can be annoying during long sessions of use.
Like any good gaming headset worth its salt, the Epos H6PRO features a boom mic. The latter has the particularity of being removable thanks to an ingenious magnetic system. The brand also provides two plastic covers to fill the space left on the earcup when the microphone is removed. The latter can also be picked up along the arc, which will have the effect of cutting the catch.
Although analog only, the H6PRO offers a volume adjustment wheel, built into the surface of the right ear cup. This affects the headphone output volume, without affecting the system volume. The connection to the computer is ensured by a generously long braided jack cable. A second cable with a combination jack plug is also provided in the box.
Epos H6 Pro Cameraperformances
Epos leaves little room for doubt as to its expertise in sound reproduction. The H6PRO is an excellent student, offering clear sound that rings particularly true in all situations. This closed version offers a slight touch of extra bass, very classic for a gaming headset.
This slight boost to the low frequencies will make sense in shooting games where explosions and other muffled noises will naturally have more magnitude. However, the good precision of the headphones allows them to be completely comfortable for listening to music. The rest of the spectrum does not suffer from any major flaws and the H6PRO delivers a very well defined sound.
We also benefit from good stereophony, associated with a wide enough sound stage to favor immersion in titles where the sound environment is important. In short, the sound reproduction of the Epos H6PRO is very convincing!
As for sound insulation, it is quite correct in this closed model. Very logically, if you switch to the open model, you must take into account that this isolation will be almost non-existent, both for you and for the people around you.
The microphone that equips the helmet also offers interesting performances. It does better than most competitors at capturing voice relatively clearly. Noise reduction isn’t the best on the market and the headset also suffers from a lack of dedicated software to set it up.
