After a definitive rebrand and push to engage with gamers, Sennheiser EPOS has unveiled two new gaming-focused headsets to take on your ear.
The Sennheiser EPOS GSP 601 and GSP 602 are only the second and third gaming-focused products launched under the recent relaunch of Sennheiser’s audio lineup and it’s clear who these refreshed products are aimed at. Both closed acoustic gaming headsets, the GSP 601 and 602 are about to hit shelves and online retailers with a range revamped colourways, for your gaming setup. These two new additions to the EPOS lineup build on the current GSP 600 and should deliver the same sort of quality of sounds and build that Sennheiser is known for with a bit more gaming personality.
New Look New Sound?
The new lick of paint for the GSP 610 and 602 looks to balance boast a mix of color schemes. The 601 matches white highlights with traditionally gaming black backgrounds, and interchangeable copper colored side plates. The 602 headset, includes a little extra flair by adding in gloss navy exteriors set against bold brandy-coloured around-ear coupling pads. While the looks might not be everybody’s taste, it is the sound quality that makes all the difference and there is no arguing that the Sennheiser tech driving these headsets should be up to the task. Both the new designs are essentially a stylish upgrade to the popular GSP 600 tech, which we reviewed favourably.
This new look doesn’t come cheap. The GSP 601 and 602 come in at around £199.00 or local equivalent over on the Epos Audio official website.
