Multi-connectivity for endless enjoyment
We wanted to build on our high-quality all-round analogue headset, the H3, with its acclaimed design and excellent audio performance, and add to its strengths by moving from the solely analogue domain. The use of our built-in DAC and amplifier gives us full control of the output signal delivered to the drivers and brings many additional benefits – the facility for wireless connection, sidetone capability, no electromagnetic interference from “noisy” internal PC audio, endless rotary encoder for volume and control over the entire audio chain. In particular, the H3 Hybrid can now make use of the EPOS Gaming Suite on PC, enabling the superior EPOS 7.1 Surround Sound and allowing full customization of audio to suit gamer preference.
Adding Bluetooth support – with a battery life of up to 37 hours in Bluetooth only mode - that will also work concurrently with the wired audio extends the functionality of the H3 Hybrid. The headset is also equipped with a magnetically attached removeable boom arm for optimal voice pick up and full EPOS Gaming Suite functionality – while also carrying an additional earcup microphone that allows the gamer to use their favorite headset on the go.
EPOS is an audio and video solution company developing and selling devices for business and gaming. The Danish founded company delivers high-end audio and video solutions with design, technology and performance as their paramount parameters.
EPOS was established to let the business segments of the joint venture – known as Sennheiser Communications – between Sennheiser Electronic GmbH & Co. KG and Demant A/S evolve in different set-ups. Alongside the introduction of a new own-branded portfolio, EPOS continues to sell the current Sennheiser Communications portfolio co-branded as EPOS | SENNHEISER.
EPOS is part of the Demant Group – a world-leading audio and hearing technology group. As such, it builds on more than 115 years of experience of working with innovation and sound.

The H3 Hybrid has been designed with obsessive attention to detail and commitment to quality and durability: tested, in fact, to the point of destruction, to ensure that in the unlikely event the device is broken, it will not cause injury. The earcup covers and cables – and the microphone boom arm – can all easily be replaced with spare parts by the owner themselves.
You can adjust the fit of the headset with the built-in stainless-steel slider in the headband, reliably dialing in your most comfortable fit with the help of the indicators and click stops. The hinged ear cups can be angled to fit any face shape and the ergonomic ear pads are designed to conform to the anatomy of your ear – creating both an excellent acoustic seal and long wearing comfort.
How to Connect H3 Hybrid
In order to connect your H3 Hybrid to your gaming platform, use either the 3.5mm (GSA 30 Console Cable) for all consoles or the USB (GSA 31 USB Cable) for PC gaming.
How to Connect H3 Hybrid with Bluetooth
In order to connect your H3 Hybrid through Bluetooth, hold the pairing button for 3 seconds and connect to “EPOS H3 Hybrid” on your Bluetooth device.
The magnetic boom arm is also removeable, with a cap that covers the joint to maintain the sleek lines of the headset while you’re on the go and have no need of microphone in game. There is a second earcup microphone which means you’ll still be able to field calls seamlessly on your phone when you’re out and about on public transport and the boom arm is safely at home.
When using the wired USB connection on PC, the H3 Hybrid can access full EPOS 7.1 Surround Sound functionality, controlled via the EPOS Gaming Suite, which also allows players to adjust the reverb level. Many other surround sound implementations are locked to a fixed reverberation setting.
Equally, proprietary console surround sound technologies work well on the H3 Hybrid via the analogue cable connection. Thanks to the well-balanced sound across the full audio spectrum and crystal-clear high frequencies that particularly assist positional audio perception, the H3 Hybrid delivers exceptional surround sound performance for both console and PC.
