Earlier this 12 months, EPOS introduced out the H3 headset. We reviewed it, and located it to be an excellent-quality headset. However EPOS has determined to tinker with it.
The corporate’s newest headset, the H3 Hybrid, takes every part that made the H3 so good – its consolation, construct high quality and audio readability – and provides to it to make a headset that’s higher. A lot higher in truth.
That ‘Hybrid’ identify isn’t for nothing. You see, whereas the H3 might solely join through 3.5mm jack, the H3 Hybrid can hook up with a tool through 3.5mm jack, USB and Bluetooth. I’m undecided I’ve seen one other headset with a lot versatility. It basically means you should utilize this headset with virtually any gadget, and with many, in various methods.
One very nifty characteristic that the H3 Hybrid packs in is one thing that many social players will probably be occupied with. You’ll be able to concurrently use the headset’s 3.5mm jack and its Bluetooth connection on the identical time. So, you might have it plugged into your Xbox or PlayStation controller, taking part in the sound out of your recreation. And you may also have it linked to your telephone, the place you’re utilizing a third-party app to talk with your pals.
It’s additionally a headset that works as a gaming headset or just as headphones to take heed to music with. The microphone fully detaches, and a separate plastic cowl means that you can cowl up its connector, leaving you with nothing however a high-quality pair of headphones. In the event you’re the kind of one who has a number of headsets for a number of makes use of, this can be the right mixture of all of them.
It’s a really chunky-looking headset, however in a approach that screams high quality moderately than an unnecessarily over-the-top design. It’s accessible in two colors – all-black (‘Onyx Black’), or black and white (‘Ghost White’). We’ve had our fingers on the Ghost White model, which appears implausible. The ear cups and head band are all black, however the outer ear protecting and decrease a part of the band are white. Regardless of its chunkiness, it’s light-weight sufficient to be comfy in your head, even after prolonged use. The actual promoting level, nonetheless, is its audio high quality.
Virtually every part sounds implausible by the EPOS H3 Hybrid. We’ve come to anticipate high quality from EPOS merchandise, and this one isn’t any totally different. Sound is crystal clear irrespective of the way you’re linked; bass is full and wealthy, and the complete gamut of sounds will be heard with no downside in any respect. Hearken to your favorite music by it and also you’ll undoubtedly hear elements of the observe you haven’t heard by customary audio system.
There may be one draw back to the H3 Hybrid’s performance, although. Because it’s a digital headset, it must be powered on even in case you’re utilizing it by the three.5mm jack. Fortunately, it boasts a superb battery life; you’ll get between 19 and 24 hours of playback on a single cost. And charging is straightforward to do – merely join the USB cable to an influence supply.
The EPOS H3 Hybrid isn’t an affordable headset; with an RRP of £149, it’s considerably costlier than the H3, which has simply had a reduction to £89. However for that additional £60 you’re getting an awesome deal extra performance. This isn’t only a gaming headset; it’s an all-round top quality pair of headphones that may do absolutely anything you’d need them to. Join them to your audio gadget, use them to recreation on no matter format you need – all bases are lined. Wonderful headsets are by no means low-cost, and we’re pretty sure this one received’t disappoint.
