Depending on the brand or company that presents us with a product for testing, we inevitably have different expectations of the result. Of course, these are particularly high when it comes to audio gurus like EPOS. The brand, which belongs to the Danish Demant Group, collaborates with Sennheiser and is completely dedicated to first-class sound for gamers. This has often resulted in excellent products.
However, EPOS has dispensed with Sennheiser’s expertise for the new True Wireless In-Ears GTW 270 Hybrid and developed them in-house. It is also possible that Sennheiser’s exit from the private sector may be the cause. Nevertheless, these headphones for gamers do not have to hide at all. They are suitable for every kind of gamer – unless you exclusively play on an Xbox.

As epic as the company name is, the packaging of the EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid also presents itself epically. Completely in black with a picture of the headphones, it can be opened. The GTW 270, a charging case, a USB dongle plus extension cable, silicone attachments, and a USB Type-C charging cable are revealed.
Everything immediately makes a high-profile impression and promises to be a great test at first glance
