EPOS sure does release a lot of headsets. It was just a few months ago that I reviewed the last Bluetooth-enabled headset from the company, the H3 Hybrid, and I absolutely loved it. Now we have the H3PRO Hybrid, and it’s even better – after all, it has “pro” in the product name and everything! Jokes about just how iterative the headset industry is aside, this really is a brilliant, versatile, and powerful headset.
The really big feature in the H3PRO Hybrid, and the main reason you’d want to grab this over its relatively modest predecessor, is the fact that this one has active noise cancellation capabilities. You put these things on, and you’re not going to hear anything around you as you play your games, listen to your music, or watch a movie. If total, uninterrupted immersion is your goal, this is the way to go. I’m making no exaggeration about just how good the tech is here. I have a fairly noisy air conditioning unit in my lounge room, and it is currently an unusually humid Australian summer in my little corner of the world. Give me 40-degree dry heat and I’m not fussed, but I can’t handle humidity, so that thing is going 24/7. The noise isn’t pleasant, but thanks to the active noise cancelling of this device, I was able to put on a quiet film (A Quiet Place 2 – a film in which quiet is pretty important) and the headset completely blocked out the aircon, cars and other noises from outside, and everything else besides. I was genuinely able to tune out the world around me.
