EPOS | SENNHEISER GSP 601 and 602 Pro Gaming Headsets Released
EPOS has launched their latest EPOS|Sennheiser gaming headsets, with the GSP 601 (pictured above) and GSP 602 offering alternatives to the more typical black/red gaming headset color scheme of the existing GSP 600.
“While standard gaming headsets file into the standard black-on-black motif, the EPOS | SENNHEISER GSP 601 and GSP 602 break the mold with fresh new colors to personalize any gaming space. The GSP 601 boasts sleek white features paired with cool black accents and interchangeable copper-colored side plates. The GSP 602 adds unique flair with gloss navy exteriors set against bold brandy-colored around-ear coupling pads.”
The GSP 601 and GSP 602 are wired, closed acoustic gaming headsets with a rated frequency response of 10–30,000 Hz, impedance of 28 Ω, and sensitivity of 112 dB SPL (1 kHz, 1V RMS). Standard 3.5 mm connection options include a separate 3.5 mm audio/mic plugs or a single 3.5 mm 4-pole headset plug via interchangeable cables.
The GSP 602 offers a unique combination of navy/black sides and dark orange “brandy” colored ear pads
Both the GSP 601 and 602 offer “ergonomic leatherette earpads with adjustable pressure to ensure sound attenuation even in the noisiest environment”, according to EPOS. The boom mic on both headsets uses the same lift-to-mute function as previous designs, with headset volume controlled via a large adjustment wheel on the right ear cup.
Suggested pricing for either the GSP 601 or GSP 602 is $219.
The GSP 600 is made with cheap plastic that breaks easily. There are a ton of complaints about this on Amazon. So I’m skeptical the 601 will not be any different. Not only that. Trying to get Sennheiser to honor their warranty has been like pulling teeth. I’ve been working getting an RMA for over a month now they are so slow and are trying to stall.
@Tim Pretty much all the “gaming” headsets are made with plastic. I was hesitant with the GSP 600 after seeing the reviews on Amazon but havn’t experienced any of those problems after months of frequent use. The stitching for the ear cups supposedly falls apart too but mine are still sturdy. YMMV
