ASUS TUF Gaming H3 Wireless Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
ASUS is one of the leading names when it comes to high-end PC and gaming hardware, and they’ve certainly worked hard to build that reputation. I reviewed the ASUS TUF Gaming H3 headset a little over a year ago and was suitably impressed with it. It was affordable, stylish, well made and offered competitive sound quality. That made it a great choice for gamers who didn’t want to spend a small fortune on their next headset. However, what if you want to go one better? Well, the new model takes the same formula, tweaks a few things, but most importantly, it cuts the cables and goes wireless! Of course, it’s a little more expensive too, but is it worth it?
ASUS TUF Gaming H3
The headset will work on mobile devices, PC, PlayStation devices, Switch and more. Basically, if you can plug a USB dongle into it, you’re good to go! The headset comes with a USB-C dongle, but they include a Type-A adapter too. The specifications remain broadly the same as the older model H3, with the same powerful drivers and microphone. Of course, they’ve added a battery and wireless hardware, but it’s still a lightweight design overall. Plus, it comes with a built-in microphone, fast charging, and a range of ergonomic adjustments that should make it easier to live with day to day.

What’s in the Box?
There’s a plug and play USB-C dongle that’ll work on PC, mobile, Switch, etc. However, if you don’t have Type-C, there’s a Type-A adapter for it too. Finally, there’s a USB-A to Type-C cable that is used for charging.
It’s a standard cable, too, so you could easily use one you have lying around or replace it if required.
