Take your game to the next level with the EPOS H3 Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset. EPOS engineered audio delivers skin tingling deep bass that delivers the intensity of game action. Also, the acoustic clarity for crisp and clear game communication.
My first impressions of the EPOS H3 gaming headset after unboxing them were of the quality. They are well built and feel light at 650g. They are manufactured using premium materials that give them a durable feel and comfortable fit. At first I thought the over the ear cups were going to be too small. But once trying them on and adjusting them they fit like a glove! Extremely comfy on, the earcups have a dual-axis hinge that helps create a good seal over your ears. Also they are made from responsive memory foam. The headband is easy to adjust and is notched in position with a click. Also, they are marked on either side with numbers for quick adjustment.
EPOS H3 Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset Review
The microphone is on the left-hand side, is bidirectional and noise cancelling for less chat feedback. I was told that I was clear over a party chat and consistently clear whilst gaming, it’s simple to use the mic just pull it down to activate past the click and then lift to mute/turn off.
So what’s the sound like? Fantastic! The low, mid and high levels are excellent making you feel truly immersed in the game, I trialled with Forza Horizon 4 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the sounds are incredible, the volume range is loud with no sign of bass distortion, the spatial audio works well in FP shooters also.
There is a dial on the right side opposite the mic for volume control and it takes 2 fingers to adjust really and takes a little to familiarise yourself with especially whilst gaming, I use the headset for Xbox so I can control the volume using the control pad quicker I find.
It’s a wired headset so can be used with pretty much anything that has a 3.5mm audio jack so they are very versatile, in the box you get a standard 3.5mm braided audio jack cable and a splitter cable for PC or your TV, the cables are around 2m in length and are good quality.
Overall, the EPOS H3 Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset is a very decent headset for gaming. It can also be used for watching movies and listening to music, these probably won’t live up to the top end base for music fans and unfortunately, the microphone can’t be removed and is rather large but with the excellent build quality, decent sound and a solid microphone for game chat the EPOS H3s are a fantastic all-rounder, thank you.
