EPOS is best known for their range of gaming headsets and surround sound DACs which were previously branded, then co-branded with Sennheiser.

Like almost every other company on the planet, they have no launched some true wireless earbuds.

With EPOS being a gaming brand they offer something many TWS earphones lack. The EPOS GTW 270 use the AptX low latency codec which offers latency as low as 40ms compared to the 170 – 270 ms you find one most TWS earbuds that use SBC only.

The low latency gaming features are not restricted to phones that are compatible with AptX LL, the EPOS GTW 270 come with a USB-C dongle which will enable compatibility on a wide range of device including Nintendo Switch, Android phone, PC and Sony PlayStation consoles.

I have previously reviewed the Creative BT-W3 USB-C dongle which offers aptX Low Latency which sells for £35, so having a dongle included with the EPOS GTW 270 is an excellent value-added feature. When not using the dongle, the earphones use standard Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity.

A 1.5-meter USB-C to USB-A converter cable for PC and Sony PlayStation consoles is also included.

The earbuds offer five hours of uninterrupted battery life from just a 90-minute charge then the   carrying case, in a sleek gunmetal silver, provides an additional 20 hours of charge for extended gaming sessions.  

With interchangeable rubberized ear tip sizes and a unique ergonomic shape, each noise-isolating earbud fits to the natural shape of ears for a comfortable fit.

The GTW 270 Hybrid also boasts IPX 5 water resistance, protecting them from sweat and light rain.

You can optionally buy the earbuds without a dongle for ₤149 GBP or including the dongle they cost ₤179 GBP available from Scan, EPOS and Amazon
