Epos has been in the gaming audio equipment business for more than 15 years, and recently launched its next-generation H3 headset, which will be supplied to the Aston Martin Cognizant Esports team, along with other products.
The team will be participating in Formula 1's official Esports Series, which starts later this month.
"Just as in the real world, esports racers require the very best equipment in order to succeed. We've already established a successful partnership with Epos, but we're delighted to be able to extend that agreement to now incorporate the esports sector," said Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One team commercial and marketing managing director Jefferson Slack.
"We've seen the recent growth of the gaming sector within motorsport – no sport offers a closer experience to the real thing; and we've enjoyed seeing gamers go racing and Formula 1 drivers enjoy virtual racing. As a team, we're really looking forward to deepening our understanding of the sector alongside Epos."
Epos director of gaming global marketing Maja Sand-Grimnitz said "We are delighted to lend the full force of Epos' gaming audio expertise to the esports ventures of the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One team. World-class audio is critical to success in the esports world – from communication, to sound cues, to total immersion, the exceptional audio performance that Epos provide is vital in every game.
"As partners, we share a mutual passion for precision and excellence in technology, performance and design, backed by over a century of innovation and heritage respectively. Combined, this underpins both companies' ability to unleash the power of audio in our respective fields. We're thrilled to work with a world-calibre team who share our ambition to push the boundaries of innovation and success in the gaming world."
