Gaming audio can be a tough decision to make in terms of which hardware to go with, but EPOS has the answer with its new gaming earbuds.
Called the GTW 270 Hybrid, EPOS has crafted the perfect pair of true wireless earbuds for gaming on the PS5. But they're not just for consoles. As the "Hybrid" in the name suggests, these connect to devices in two different ways. But it also evokes the usability. As these also work great for mobile and cloud gaming in addition to console gaming.
EPOS, which used to be Sennheiser's gaming brand, wanted to offer true wireless audio that was just as versatile as it is high-quality. The GTW 270 Hybrid set out to achieve this lofty goal.
GTW 270 Hybrid Gaming earbuds from EPOS deliver low-latency gaming audio
Audio in games is just as important as the gameplay itself. It can set the tone for a really excellent game. And sometimes it helps with the immersion and thereby the overall experience you have while playing.
With wireless audio though, sometimes that can be ruined by latency. These new earbuds from EPOS are designed as a low-latency product. So you can expect little to no noticeable skips or drops in the audio as you play your favorite games.
What makes this possible is a USB-C dongle that comes in the package with the earbuds. These use the same technology as the dongle that can be found with the EPOS and Sennheiser GSP 670 wireless headphones. Which we have kept on our Best Gaming Headphones list for quite a while.
This dongle makes it easy to connect to any device that has an available USB-C port. And that compatibility can be expanded thanks to the Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. So you can use them with the PS5, mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, and even PC.
Designed for comfort and long-lasting gaming sessions
True wireless earbuds can be hit or miss when it comes to the comfort. And this all boils down to the design and the fit of the earbuds. EPOS designed the GTW 270 Hybrid earbuds to be ergonomic. That way they stay comfortable over long periods of time. EPOS says it came to the conclusion of the final design with the help of over 800,000 ear scans.
The earbuds also come with a battery life of up to 5 hours. And a recharge only takes 90 minutes in the included charging case. While the battery life isn't as long as a pair of over-ear headphones, it's plenty long enough for a gaming sessions of a decent length.
They feature IPX5 water resistance, too, so you can wear them outside in light rain. There's multiple ear tips inside the box as well. You can buy the EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid earbuds right now from the EPOS website. As well as retail partners.
