The Epos will probably appeal to those wanting a high-quality headset that can use with almost every device. The capacity to use it both wired and wireless at the same time adds a ﬂexibility that helps to explain the somewhat higher price than we expected.
What you will see here?
The Epos H3 Hybrid has excellent audio quality, although with slightly harsh high-end frequencies and detectable screech while using a 3.5 mm cable. It’s also painfully simple to destroy the battery if you forget to turn the headset off, as it only powers down when Bluetooth devices have disconnected.
Considering, the Epos H3 Hybrid is extremely comfortable to wear, gives us a lot of flexibility, and has a great overall sound that will appeal to the majority of users. The EPOS H3 Hybrid solves a specific problem that an increasing number of gamers are running into the need to connect to multiple devices at once during multiplayer. Outside of that need, it’s a good, albeit expensive gaming headset, and people with big ears will probably want to avoid it.
The headset has an understated design that’s more like an overbuilt enterprise headset than a gaming headset. It’s all black, with a plastic exterior over a metal headband support. The over-ear earpads are generously padded with memory foam, with faux leather on the sides and a felt-like material on the facing surface that presses against the sides of your head.
Price and Release date
On September 14, 2021, the Epos H3 Hybrid was released, for $179 / £160 / AU$259. That means it’s almost double as expensive as the Epos H3, which retails for $119 / £109 / AU$179 but it is often found for less. The Epos H3 Hybrid is available in two variants: Ghost White and Onyx Black, with both the white pair looking super good in front of the Nintendo Switch OLED.
The Epos H3 Hybrid and the excellent Epos H3 have a lot of things in common in design. They’re closed-back headphones with the same super soft, enveloping angle earcups, flush volume dial, and flip-to-mute boom arm microphone as the Epos H3 headphones. They’re also very light, weighing only 298 grams.

At first appearance, the Epos H3 Hybrid looks to be similar to the Epos H3. However, it changes in some small ways. On the left side of the phone, there’s a physical button that switches on the headset, as well as an LED display. Above the power button is a small microphone. You can use the Bluetooth headset to answer calls due to the built pinhole microphone. However, as you can expect, the audio quality isn’t as good as the special boom mic.
The most significant design change between both the Epos H3 Hybrid and the Epos H3 is the boom mic. Which is permanently connecting to the headset, may now remove. One of our greatest complaints about the Epos H3 was that you couldn’t remove the microphone, which made using the headset outside the house difficult. So because the microphone can now easily remove and reattach. You may wear the Epos H3 Hybrid headset on your daily commute or while traveling. When the mic is uninstalling, you also receive a small plastic cover to protect the exposed connections, which is useful.
The Epos H3 Hybrid provides the same greater audio that we’ve come to expect from Epos’ gaming headsets. You can expect extremely accurate and clear sound. This means you’ll be able to hear all of the minor details that other headsets may muddy. Mids and lows are well-balancing, so satisfying thumps follow explosions and gunfire in games like Halo Infinite.
Unfortunately, the Epos H3 Hybrid was just too bright for our comfort. When a 3.5 mm cable is connecting, the hybrid headphones emit a considerable hiss, which we didn’t enjoy. There is no hiss while using the headphones wirelessly, which makes the problem even more puzzling. The hissing isn’t particularly loud, but for people who are susceptible to background noise, it might be a deal-breaker.
Microphone quality and connectivity in Epos H3 hybrid
When connected via Bluetooth, the Epos H3 Hybrid has an impressive battery life of 41 hours. We found that it generally matched the manufacturer’s claim. A pleasant voice tells you how much power is left every time you turned the headset on; you’ll also be alerted when it’s time to charge the headset via the Connector.
However, because the headset only shuts down when linked to a Bluetooth device, it’s incredibly simple to drain the battery by accident. Because the Epos H3 Hybrid must turn on to work. If you forget to switch them off and the headset stays linked to your phone, you might mistakenly keep them on for hours.
We had no problems with the headset’s microphone, thankfully. During voice chats and in online meetings, our voices sounded perfectly clear. Whenever possible, we type — the boom microphone instead of the built-in pinhole microphone.
The hybrid headset offers wired connectivity with consol and USB cables, plus Bluetooth connectivity. The headset works well as both a wired and Bluetooth. it is extremely comfortable doing use. It delivers active noise canceling. Other new features and good battery life.it has a good build quality wire connection still use a battery. It’s another resounding success for EPOS, upgrading the wired H3 gaming headset to the all-new wireless H3 Hybrid. The EPOS H3 Hybrid is a fantastic headset that delivers on the brand’s impressive commitment to high-quality audio.
