The headphones we have for our EPOS H6PRO Closed Headphones Review are white. It arrived in a premium-looking all-white package, giving off a clean and premium vibe. If you choose the other colours available (green and black), the headphones will arrive in a black-coloured box instead.
The front of the box shows you the H6PRO closed headphones, its name, and company branding. It is a simple and minimalist package, but EPOS successfully made it look classy and premium, which we love.
Inside, the headphones sit snugly in a foam insert. We appreciate it since it keeps the product safe during shipping, guaranteeing it arrives in tip-top condition. Also included in the package is an accessory box to keep other accessories organised.
Inside the box, you will find a GSA 30 PC cable and GSA 30 console cable. There are also two H6PRO covers, a safety guide, and a quick start guide.
EPOS H6PRO Closed Headphones Review – Design and Functionality
The headphones look excellent out of the box. While inspecting it for our EPOS H6PRO Closed Headphones Review, we noticed the attention to detail EPOS gave the product.
Externally, the frame of these headphones is plastic with metal bars inside. Its inclusion adds to its rigidity while allowing for better head-size adjustments. The metal bars also merge into the H6PRO Closed Headphones cups via the extra arm.
The build and layout of the product allow you to wear the headphones comfortably for long hours. Plus, these also provide an attractive and premium aesthetic.
The H6PRO Closed Headphones feature a padded headband with soft faux leather. It is soft to the touch and is perfect when using the product for continuous hours. The headband also has an extensive level of adjustability, with a total of eight labelled notches present.
Moving to its earpads, these use a velvet or suede-like material, which allows them to rest comfortably on your ears. Faux leather is also present on the earpads but only around the edges.
Inside the earpads is soft foam with plenty of padding. You can easily remove these, allowing for a more convenient replacement process. The combination of materials also helps the headphones create a seal along your ears to keep audio sealed.
The right earcup houses the volume adjustment wheel and sports a large surface area than usual. However, note that the volume turns from 100% to around 5%. It was a deliberate action from EPOS to stop users from muting the H6PRO Closed Headphones.
If you need to mute it, you have to use other controls.
Boom Arm Microphone and Magnetic Cover Plate
These headphones have a boom arm sporting a top-notch mic for communication. If you do not need the mic, you can easily detach and then reattach this whenever necessary.
Once removed, you can place the magnetic cover plate on the mic boom socket. It will provide a sleek and premium look while the mic is out.
The plate features notches that fit perfectly into the headphone groove. It also has a little magnet in the centre to hold the plate.
On the side that faces forward, you will find an edge with grips. Pushing these will allow you to remove the plate, and we think it is a clever implementation from EPOS.
EPOS H6PRO Closed Headphones Cables
The H6PRO Closed Headphones ships complete with two cables. The top is for connecting Smartphones, consoles, PCs, or laptops using a single 3.5mm headphone/mic combo jack. And for reference, this cable measures 140cm long.
The other cable links the headset to a PC, soundcard, or laptop and is for separating the headphone/mic jacks. This cable is 250cm long.
Despite the difference in length, both cables have high-quality braids that look and feel excellent. These also have proprietary 4-pole 2.5mm jacks.
You will recognise these jacks if you own a Sennheiser gaming headset.
