EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid Wireless Earbuds Launched for with AptX LL USB-C dongle for low latency gaming

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.

Maximum Bit rate Latency  Max Sampling Rate Max Bit depth
SBC 328 kbps  170 – 270 ms  48 kHz 16-bit
aptX  352 kbps 120 ms  48 kHz 16-bit
aptX LL  352 kbps 40 ms  48 kHz 16-bit
aptX HD  576 kbps 200 ms 48 kHz 24-bit
LDAC 990 kbps 160-210ms 96 kHz 24-bit

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
