In this article we are going to see the review of Epos H3PRO Hybrid a pair of headphones that give us the opportunity to enjoy the quality of Epos on any device that transmits an audio signal
With these headphones, Epos has once again demonstrated the general quality of their products, and perhaps even surpassed itself. The design of the headphones is elegant, atypical and appreciable. The phenomenal audio sector and the possibilities of infinite connections. Obviously all this quality raises the price, but let’s find out in detail what this fantastic headset offers.
Top design and materials | Epos H3PRO Hybrid Review
As we have learned from the reviews of Epos H6 PRO and Epos H3 Hybrid, the company in question is all about sobriety. Although the headphones in question are obviously devoted to gaming, we will not find RGB LEDs, bright inserts or tacky logos. Sobriety and elegance dominate undisputed sovereigns and go to provide an attractive but very sober design.
The Epos H3PRO Hybrid provided for this review they are in double black-green color. Black mixed with petrol green lend an elegant tone to the headphones and adapt them to practically any situation. If you want to use the headphones in the comfort of your home while playing on your PC or if you want to use them to listen to music on the subway, you will never feel out of place.
Speaking of design, it is good to remember that the microphone is removable and supplied you will find a cover to hide the contacts. Do not worry, however, despite the removal of the main microphone, you will be able to use your headphones to talk to your smartphone thanks to the secondary microphone supplied.
The materials chosen for these headphones are the same that we find in the other models. A solid and well-covered headband with an imitation leather material in the part in contact with the head, and in fabric for the rest that hides a metal core.
The memory foam earpads, and covered in imitation leather on the sides and in velvet for the part in contact with the ear, are extremely comfortable even during long sessions of use.
How do these headphones sound? | Epos H3PRO Hybrid Review
Before talking about the actual sound it is good to remember that these headphones offer the possibility of multi connection. In simple words, you can connect your Epos H3PRO Hybrid simultaneously to multiple bluetooth devices. If your phone rings during a gaming session, you can easily answer and continue your game at the same time.
Obviously the game audio will suffer a decrease in volume and despite the double audio it will be possible to distinguish the two different audio streams.
This feature is really great especially if you decide you want to use third-party applications for party game sessions. In fact, you can connect its audio sources for example to the current game and at the same time also to Discord which many times offers a better chat than the one present in the game.
The sound of these headphones is undoubtedly of excellent quality. While dedicated to gaming, they also lend themselves to listening to music or a film.
The full-bodied but never too overwhelming bass make the explosions and shots fired during a FPS game give a feeling of total identification.
The high and mid tones are also good and even raising the decibels a lot we never had sound distortions. Probably the merit of such a clean sound is concentrated in the construction of the headphones with enveloping the player with the earpads not allowing distractions. Obviously another very important element are the supplied drivers.
Thanks to the low latency system and the supplied dongle you can also connect the headphones to your PC and use the headphones wirelessly without ever losing the signal.
Obviously no one forbids using the integrated Bluetooth system but if your device is not equipped, the possibility of finding a reception key inside the package was much appreciated. It should also be noted that inside the box you will also find an extension for the key that will allow you to bring the dongle as close to the headphones as possible.
Of course, you will also have the option of connecting headphones via cable. The connection via 3.5mm jack will allow you to take advantage of any internal or external sound card. Also thanks to the cable you can connect to any new generation console.
The news does not end here! In fact, if, as mentioned, the audio excels from every point of view, it is good to say that the immersion will be even greater thanks to the ANC noise cancellation system.
Obviously this system is also excellent during mobile listening sessions. If you find yourself in a crowded city or on a train you can enjoy your music in total tranquility. On the other hand, the same principle could be useful for you to stay focused in some situation of the game, excluding environmental noises.
Speaking of the user experience, however, the ANC system does not excel. The most substantial part of the work is carried out by the pavilions themselves and even activating the noise cancellation system there will be no huge differences.
As for the microphone, we are instead in front of one of the best on the market.

Who should buy these Epos H3PRO Hybrid
In short, we are faced with a headset that leaves nothing to chance. The audio is at the top and the Epos in question will allow us to enjoy their sound during gaming sessions but also while watching a movie or listening to beautiful music.
The external microphone excels as it did in the past and the integrated one is good too.
Less well is the noise reduction system which, even when activated, does not reach the standard necessary for headphones that are in the medium-high market range.
Headphones of the same price offer a better service from this point of view.
Concluding this renewed version of the H3 Hybrid brings very interesting news and greatly improves a product that was already valid in itself.
The main problem is the doubling of the cost which in our opinion is not fully justified by the improvements made.
If you are looking for a pair of headphones that can give you satisfaction in gaming but at the same time can be used on the move, to listen to tracks other than the game ones and give the possibility of being connected to multiple devices simultaneously, you have found them. .
The Epos H3PRO Hybrid really offer one of the most complete packages on the market even if the price seems slightly high and not entirely justified.
