German esports organisation Sprout has announced a partnership with audio device company EPOS.
As a result of the agreement, EPOS will provide headsets and other audio equipment to Sprout’s players.
EPOS, which started out as a joint venture between audio brand Sennheiser and hearing health company Demant Group in 2019, has already secured a number of deals within the esports industry. The company’s partners include the likes of BLAST Premier, OverActive Media, ESL Australia, and the Aston Martin Cognizant F1 sim racing team, among others.
Steven Smith, EPOS’ VP of Global Sales, Gaming, commented: “We are thrilled to join forces with Sprout as official audio partner. In throwing the full weight of our exceptional engineering, technology, and product portfolio behind the team, EPOS will elevate Sprout to the next level of competitive gameplay, through total immersion and unrivalled accuracy in audio and communications. We look forward to joining Sprout as they build on the incredible success so far.”
EPOS is now a part of Sprout’s commercial portfolio that includes noblechairs, Caseking, Skinport, AMD and Endgame Gear.
Sven Thomas, Executive manager, Sprout, added: “With EPOS, we have the perfect partner to meet the auditory demands of a professional esports team. We want to offer our players the best possible solution to utilize their full potential. Now we can support this with innovative products.”
Esports Insider says: EPOS is slowly, but steadily making big moves in the esports industry, which is impressive since we’re talking about a two-year-old brand. Despite being young, EPOS is already becoming a household name in esports, and its partnership with Sprout will only strengthen its position.
