Formerly a partner of Sennheiser, Epos has taken over the manufacture of gaming headsets from the German manufacturer and after a rather satisfactory H3 Hybrid, the cover has been returned with a PRO version which is much better. Today, the Epos H3PRO Hybrid remains a benchmark for wireless gaming headsets and is currently on sale at Darty: 199.99 euros instead of 279.99 euros.

It will please demanding gamers and moreover, it is more affordable today thanks to this reduction of 80 euros, or 30% immediate discount.

A comfortable helmet with a high level of compatibility
Just looking at it, we suspect that the Epos H3PRO Hybrid is a high-end gaming headset, whether in terms of the materials used, the finish or the aesthetics. The rigid headband is covered with soft padding and can adapt to all sizes of skull without putting pressure on it. As for the padded ear cups, the exterior is covered with plush fabric for guaranteed comfort. In addition, the passive insulation is correct and the temperature does not rise quickly over long periods.
Thanks to its 2.4 GHz USB-A dongle, the Epos H3PRO Hybrid is able to work with PS5, PS4, Switch and on your PC. You can also use it with your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Finally, the Epos H3PRO Hybrid offers a wired connection allowing you to pair it with Xbox Series, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and 5 controllers. Noise reduction is also one of its features and can be adjusted from an application. dedicated on your smartphone.
Sound performance that lives up to its PRO label
With its H3PRO, the Danish manufacturer is up to Sennheiser, its German parent company. This gaming headset offers us excellent reproduction with very present bass, clear mids and precise highs. You can even enjoy 7.1 surround sound with the PS5’s 3D Audio mode or Dolby modes if you own the license. For gaming, listening to music or enjoying a quiet series, this headset is perfect. In addition, you have access to an equalizer if you use it on your PC.
Finally, let’s come to what makes the Epos H3PRO Hybrid stand out from other gaming headsets: its dual microphone system. First, we have a microphone integrated into the right atrium, therefore more discreet, which is better to use only to take calls as the rendering is saturated and lacks naturalness. The second microphone is on a pole and clips onto the left atrium thanks to a magnetic system, it offers a clear and precise reproduction of your voice and is able to attenuate ambient noise, so it is better suited for streaming.
