Our setup here is consist of the Fiio E10k. With the headset’s impedance of 32 Ohms, It is not necessary to have an amplifier here. I also tried the headset directly plug to my PC via front panel ports to test its sound quality.
SONGS USED FOR TESTING:
- DotA 2
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
SIGNATURE AND SOUND IMPRESSIONS
The Asus TUF H3 Gaming Headset’s sound signature is warm & smooth where the bass and vocals are more prominent, and the higher sounds, though present, are quieter and subdued.
The bass here is punchy and quite good in my opinion while the mid or vocals are still good. The treble here is still present but they don’t have much sparkle into them. Overall, they are decent for listening to music. Not much clarity and detailed but it gets the job done.
SOUNDSTAGE, IMAGING, AND ISOLATION
The soundstage is tight and feels so close while the imaging is decent which good enough in pinpointing enemies during gaming. Sound isolation is good because of its closed-back design.
The Asus TUF H3 Gaming headset’s comfort is very mediocre. Padding is decent on the top and the earpads as well. The gripe I had is that my ears are sitting on the driver wall itself. Over time I started to feel pain in wearing the headset. Aside from that, the clamping force is very tight as well. It is a very tight fit, and the pressure can be felt over time and plus the gripe I had above. The solution I had is to put some cheap earpads for my KOSS KSC75 lessen
Mic quality is decent, it does pick up a lot of noise in the background and popping sounds can be heard during the recording. I suggest getting a mic foam cover to lessen the popping. I tried using the included splitter here to test my mic in my pc. Sadly, it didn’t work. Here is a sample recording of the mic’s quality using my 10.5” IPad Pro.
No software support. The headset is a plug and play.
