Gaming Experience

The large 50mm drivers coupled with airtight over-ear set of cans, delivers decent balanced gaming audio reproduction with deep bass. Driving the headset directly from onboard audio solution resulted in slight lack of punch in the low frequency range but using it with external amp like ASUS Xonar U7 resulted in rather pleasant and quite balanced for gaming experience.

Audio Experience

Beside gaming I love listen to music on my PC whenever I get time. But with TUF Gaming H3 headset the audio lover inside me got little disappointed. High frequency is not very clear, headset outputs good bass, but I feel some deep bass part (boom-boom) is little missing.
