EPOS H3 Headset Review: An All-Rounder For The Versatile Gamer

When it comes to gaming headsets, the market seems pretty inundated with choice. Not to mention, it's hard to find one that suits you - comfort, sound, weight and versatility all come into play. It's tough to create that magic one that'll suit everyone, but even harder to find one that will suit you specifically. Very few headsets truly hit the nail on the head, with some coming away as muddy-sounding or too heavy for any one person's preference.

There are (of course) the titans of Razer and SteelSeries, meaning the little guy can struggle to wriggle into the market. So, it’s not often that another name enters the chat with a great all-rounder in the mid-price range; and it looks like the EPOS H3s are doing just that.

Versatility

EPOS H3 Headset Review

In the modern gaming landscape, versatility is an important feature of an all-rounder headset, and the H3 delivers. With it being wired, it’s easy to switch over devices and it is adaptable to any console on the market right now. Importantly, the H3 wired closed acoustic gaming headset also has great flexibility across media.

The bass is exemplified when listening to music without losing any clarity in sound - and what it lacks in a pristine high-end ring, it makes up for with a great emphasis on sub-bass. That isn’t to say the H3 is perfect in this field, as it wasn’t designed to handle the intricacies of music production. Still, it’ll boost the radio on your Forza playthrough with ease and swagger.

Comfort

The headset is a strange-looking one. Its cups hang back on a slant, looking as though they were designed for elves - but frankly, it’s a surprise more headsets aren’t designed like this. The headset won’t prioritise aesthetics, but it’ll make sure you’re comfortable on your killstreaks. The plush cups can put a little pressure on your ears, but they’re so soft, you won’t waste your time adjusting them when you’re most needed in-game.

The volume function is built into the face of the right ear in the form of a wheel, which can be a little fiddly, but its space-saving and ingenuity can’t be understated. The build of the H3 wired closed acoustic gaming headset makes for a relatively unobstructed gaming experience, and as long as you’re taking regular breaks, it won’t impede your gaming at all.

Gameplay

EPOS H3 Headset Review

Of course, the most important feature of any gaming headset is how it performs in-game, and the H3 holds its own nicely. It might not sweep the floor compared to high-end headsets, but it’ll give you an extended peripheral vision of the battlefield in games that have well-balanced audio outputs.

You won’t be able to triangulate enemy positions instantly, but in games like Fortnite where your enemy’s shots can be displayed on the HUD, it’s a brilliant asset that’ll give you a subtle edge. The H3 is a great and versatile headset that will work nicely for casual gamers, but for those looking for a sharpness fit for their budding esports careers, it might be worth opting for something a little pricier.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the EPOS H3 is a solid headset that does its job effectively - without entirely breaking the bank or being an overbearing eyesore. It certainly won’t decimate the market of gaming headsets, but it works nicely without being uncomfortable or particularly heavy. The H3 is an all-rounder that deserves its chance in the big leagues and could teach its beefier rivals a thing or two.

The EPOS H3 is now available in Onyx Black and Ghost White colour variants via the EPOS site and from select retailers with a suggested retail price of £109.
