While many of us will purchase the XPG EMIX H30 and SOLOX F30 from our favorite online retailer, if you happen to find the headset in an actual store, you’ll find plenty of information on the package to know exactly what you are looking at. The front of the box doesn’t give you too much information, just an overview picture of the H30 and F30. If you flip the box over, here you will find the details of the features. XPG does a great job at doing their best to make sure everything arrives undamaged by surrounding the individual components with soft foam.
Included in the box is a detailed user manual, the EMIX H30 headset (with a storage bag), the SOLOX F30 amplifier, a headset stand, F30 connection cables, and a detachable microphone. While many of these is required to use the EMIX H30 headset, the included bag and stand are a nice touch.
