Comfort and perfect audio are the combination that the makers of the new EPOS H3 headset have focused on. This headset has been developed for demanding gamers on all gaming platforms with a 3.5mm jack connection. In this article we explain the secret behind this new model. You get an impression of the H3 and you also have a chance to try the new headset yourself at home. After all, how sound is experienced is primarily a personal matter.
During the development of this headset, the main focus was on achieving the best performance and sound quality, combined with comfort for the user. EPOS has opted for a fixed connection for the H3. You connect it via a cable. EPOS supplies two of these: one with a combined audio connection for the microphone and sound, and one with two separate plugs. This allows you to effortlessly use the H3 with any other device, be it a laptop, PC, Mac OSX, Sony PlayStation®, Nintendo Switch™. or Xbox®. And of course the H3 also fits on the Nintendo Switch™[DvD2] . This is easy and hassle-free; it’s a matter of plugging in and using. Another advantage of a wired connection is that you have less delay issues, which means that you have your finger on the trigger faster to take out opponents. Plus, your battery won’t run out in the middle of a game.
When you first take the H3 in your hand, you notice that it has been designed with an eye for detail. The ear pads are made of suede-like material. Not only does that make them comfortable, but it also helps keep your ears from overheating, which often happens with other over-the-ear models. You can also rotate the cushions slightly, so that they optimally fit every face shape. Because it is possible to replace the cushions, you can enjoy the H3 for longer.
The choice of closed ear cups ensures that your ears are not exposed to noise around you. Thanks to the headset’s high degree of passive noise suppression, you can keep your focus more. Central to the design of the H3 was the desire to pass on the pure sound from your system to you as a gamer as well as possible.
One of the things you don’t see but that does increase the comfort of the H3 is the headband. The foam in it ensures that the headset can be worn comfortably for a longer period of time. The indentation in the headband helps to reduce pressure on the soft part of the head while distributing the pressure evenly. This contributes to wearing comfort. These are all bonus points with this headset.
EPOS has also provided extra definition in the sound. This allows you to easily distinguish the guns that are used in an fps to attack you. The technology of EPOS fits perfectly with the 3D audio techniques that are being applied in more and more games. Microsoft’s Sonic is – just like Sony’s 3D Tempest – supported, which ensures a convincing display. Of course, this also applies to the games you play on your PC.
The quality that EPOS stands for is also expressed in production. Each pair of headphones is assessed for sound performance at the end of the production line.
During the development of the H3, extra attention was paid to the microphone. This is not only foldable, but also made of flexible material. This is useful if you wave your hands around your face during a stress attack, but also when you put the headset in your bag. With the GSP 300 the microphone was still unidirectional, with this new model it is bidirectional. This makes effective noise reduction possible. This will make your voice come across loud and clear, which is ideal if you’re leading a team on a raid or reviewing a level. You can easily mute the microphone: flip it up and it will stop recording sound.
For gamers, EPOS offers an additional upgrade with the optional GSX 300 External Sound Card. Because the GSX 300 is an external addition, sources of interference from your PC have much less chance of getting a grip on the sound. As a result, you benefit from noise-free sound. Like plenty of comfort, this improves performance in your games, because your focus is only on what really matters: the action on your screen. The GSX 300 and the Gaming Suite allow you to customize audio and communication. You also get access to EPOS 7.1 Surround Sound and you can enable sidetone.
