SOUND SIGNATURE AND IMPRESSIONS
The ASUS TUF H3 Gaming headset has a V shape signature but not sacrificing any clarity or overpowering the vocals. This is quite nice since you can use this TUF H3 for any immersive RPG games or any action/FPS games which require hearing footsteps and gunshots. Alternatively, you can also use this for music listening since the vocals here are not muddy and surprisingly clearer than most headsets in this price category
The bass is good and solid, thanks to the leatherette material of the earcups which helps seal the sound, and also the clamping force that helps to prevent sound leaks.
The mids are slightly recessed but the voice clarity is still visible.
The treble is decent and it’s quite good for playing FPS games in which I supposed what this headset is being marketed to.
SOUNDSTAGE, IMAGING AND ISOLATION
The sound stage is quite small and tight, it is quite expected for a closed-back headphones in this price point.
The imaging of the TUF H3 is decent, you can easily pinpoint where your enemy is coming from and also the gunshot sounds in both CSGO and Valorant.
Isolation is good and decent, with no sound leaks due to the nature of the material used in the earcups and a pretty decent clamping force without any fatigue in extended hours of gameplay.
The thickness of the stock earpads on the ASUS TUF H3 is a little bit thin for me that you can feel the plastic housing o
As you can see, the TUF H3 gaming headset microphone is non-detachable and it’s quite long enough to be able to put it near your mouth. It is also uni-directional which helps isolate unwanted environmental sounds.
