Today I turn my full attention to the €279 luxury headset from EPOS, which shines with extensive connectivity options. Read the review to find out whether the device lives up to the company’s name. And if you are one of the readers who have never heard of the manufacturer EPOS, let me give you a brief introduction. EPOS is a young company in the field of communication solutions, which develops devices for companies and the gaming industry and can draw on a wealth of experience.
Founded in Denmark, the company offers high-end audio and video solutions that are distinguished primarily by design, technology and performance. EPOS emerged from the Sennheiser Communications brand (a joint venture between Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co KG and Demant A/S) and was established to focus specifically on this market sector. The latest work is the H3pro Hybrid, which was developed for demanding gamers who are looking for a high-quality and extremely flexible headset. The name affix “hybrid” refers to the fact that it can be used both wirelessly and wired. First, a little teaser:
The packaging is kept rather simple, it looks tidy and elegant.
The headset is embedded in soft foam.
Thus one gets along also here without ugly plastic foil.
At first glance, the device looks very high quality.
Almost the entire construction is made of plastic.
What might seem a bit daunting considering the price, ends up feeling sturdy and worthy.
The bracket is covered on the outside with a resistant textile mesh.
Inside, it is stitched with a band of faux leather that is less susceptible to sweat and sebum.
Of course, the temple is also adjustable and extremely flexible due to its very large adjustment range.
The ear cups are made of different materials. The outer material consists of soft imitation leather, the contact surface of a fine, velour-like material and the inner part of a very soft mesh.
On the right ear cup, you’ll find the volume control, ANC switch, and the smart button, which is also used for Bluetooth control.
On the left ear cup, you’ll find the 2.5mm jack and USB-C port, the power button, a status LED, and both microphones.
The main microphone is foldable and mutes itself when folded up.
It’s also detachable in case you ever want to use the device as headphones only.
The included accessories are also quite lush. The scope includes the usual “instruction leaflet”, the expected wireless dongle and the 2.5mm to 3.5mm jack cable. Furthermore, a USB-C cable for charging, a blind cap for the detachable microphone and even a USB-A extension are included.
