EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅03-03-21

We’ve reviewed countless headsets here at Vortez but this is the first time we’ve had the pleasure of delving into the world of earbuds, (and gaming earbuds at that) and we’ve been blown away by what EPOS has to offer in the GTW 270 Hybrids.

From the packaging, all the way to the end product it’s clear we’re dealing with a expertly crafted piece of kit. EPOS aren’t known for cutting corners or making compromises when it comes to the build quality on their products and the same can be said for this new release.

But, it isn’t just about the build quality – audio performance is a top priority for any product within this arena and we’re pleased to report that the GTW 270s excel in this domain too. Throughout our testing we experienced solid performance regardless of the given situation. This is made even more enjoyable by the fact that we’re able to use USB-C or Bluetooth for connectivity and getting set up takes a matter of seconds. Those with a learning towards a ‘closed’ headset will appreciate the noise isolation from what EPOS presents in the GTW 270s.

Having two different options for connectivity makes these earbuds versatile – paving the way for usage on PC, mobile phone and even console. GTW 270s are compatible with the latest PS5 but sadly not the Xbox X Series, and it isn’t EPOS who are to blame. The Xbox X Series has neither a USB-C port or Bluetooth!

Comfort is always an area of concern for product which cover the ears and we encountered no issues here, the only thing which may stop you in your tracks is the 5-hour battery life (which is hardly anything to complain about). The supplied earbuds case will provide up to 15 hours (3x charge)

While the asking price of GBP £199 | USD $199 | AUS $349 is a lot to ask – there are few options in the gaming sector for wireless earbuds and especially something which matches the technical specifications of the GTW 270s.

On the hunt for a lightweight wireless gaming headset? The GTW 270s are definitely worth considering!
