ASUS TUF H3 Headset Review

No matter how long you have been gaming for, in my case a lifetime, one thing has never changed and that is the stupid tribal nature of people who own a particular system. Whether it was NES vs Master System, XBOX vs Playstation, or simply PC Gaming Masterrace vs Consoles, there is this ridiculous "I've brought the correct thing, please validate me" section of the community that refuses to go away.
In reality most of us own at least one console alongside our PCs, and for many of us two or more. We love games, regardless of platform, and the exclusive nature of the gaming world means that usually ends up being one of the two heavy hitters - Playstation or XBOX - alongside a Nintendo console and our PC. With so many gaming platforms upon which to try and conquer the world/save the world/rescue the Princess having a headset which works across all of them is something we all would love.
Fortunately whilst the smartphone industry is doing its best to dispense with the convenience of a 3.5mm port and instead wants to use their own system to force you to buy their own, overpriced, audio solutions, for gaming only two things are needed; a Bluetooth headset or a 3.5mm jack one. The ASUS TUF H3 goes down the 3.5mm route which makes it very affordable compared to its wireless brethren and allows it to connect to almost everything. Is the sound quality sufficient that you'd want to? That's what we're here to find out.
If, like us, you've been following keenly the world of headsets then the specifications of the TUF H3 will be instantly familiar. 50mm drivers with a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response are the bread and butter of the headset world, so rather than concentrate too much here, let's see what it looks like in the flesh.
