Very good friends, this time we are lucky to review a headset, which has a simple design, devoid of the common RGB today or anything very flashy, but with a quality and performance far superior to its market value.
At first glance we have a simple box, with a very clean design and quite clear in terms of its use and compatibility.
When we first took the TUF Gaming H1 out of the box, we didn’t think much of it. It’s not much to look at and it feels underwhelming in the hand. But once you put it on your head, you appreciate some of the hidden joys of design.
The contents of the box are quite basic and simple, with the earpiece, a splitter cable, and its corresponding manual. The Headset is very light, which makes it very comfortable in daily use.
The Gaming H1 also features a material strap headband design, much like the SteelSeries headset, that rests smoothly on the head, rather than any metal or plastic headband. This offers a soft feel for all-day comfort that makes it easy to wear.
The ear cups are 100% protein leather and are quite large as well. The inside diameter of these headphones provides plenty of room, top to bottom and side to side, to accommodate larger ears. Unfortunately, they’re not as deep as we’d like, so there’s a bit of pressure against the outside where the lug sits against the driver.
The headband design is also quite rigid. Although the earcups tilt up and down, they won’t move from side to side, so it can be difficult to adjust.
The headband is also not stretchable in the traditional way, but instead relies on the flexibility of the elastic fabric suspension headband and the large size of the design.
The Asus TUF Gaming H1 is a stereo headset with 40mm drivers with virtual surround sound via Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos sound.
It’s nice and loud, with a basic volume wheel on the left ear cup that you can easily adjust. We found the sound to be reasonably capable, too.
Unsurprisingly, the TUF Gaming H1 has a unidirectional boom mic. That mic can be easily adjusted so you can position it however you like: move it out of the way when you need it, and close it when you want to talk. It is said to be certified by Teamspeak and Discord, but it does not have AI noise cancellation capabilities.

This headset is good enough for watching movies, listening to music, and gaming. The sound is a bit hollow, though: it lacks the bass and range of other more expensive gaming headsets, so some of the richness is lost.
The above does not affect the initial conclusion, that is, for its price the sound and quality of the headset is excellent
The Asus TUF Gaming H1 also comes with a splitter cable, so you can easily connect it to your console, PC, or other devices.
This dividing cable also provides an additional length to the headset, which helps to start the cable that comes directly to the headset, since sometimes it can be somewhat short, depending on the setup and use of the headset.
In short, the Asus TUF Gaming H1 is a no-frills headset that’s affordably priced, but surprisingly good for the money, with audio quality that belies its price and a lightweight build that’s very nice in everyday use.
Now, as we previously mentioned, the sound isn’t that rich in terms of bass or audio range, the microphone can’t be removed, and the depth of the earcups isn’t deep enough for our liking.
So the TUF Gaming H1 probably won’t blow your mind, but it’s not going to break the bank either.
