I loved a $280 gaming headset for 14 months,

Our author Schumann has been wearing the “EPOS H3PRO” headset for hardware testing for 14 months. He likes the headset, but it’s not mutual.

This is my relationship with the noble name: I like the headset very much. For decades, I’ve been wearing cheap headphones that somehow broke after a few years. And this is only because I was standing on the cable with the gaming chair and at the same time I pulled very hard on the cable, which was very short.

After my other short-term relationships with other headphones, the EPOS H3PRO is truly a gem, so what about life:

  • The sound quality is excellent, whether it’s music, series or video games – I have nothing to complain about. Most of the time I listen to music with headphones or the voice of my awesome team members at work. When it comes to gaming, I prefer strategy games because I usually turn off the soundtrack after a few hours, if I turn it on.
  • The wearing quality is really excellent – the headset gently caresses my ears, and at 308g I hardly notice I’m wearing it, even after hours. all the best.
  • The voice acting is great. You can listen to an audio sample from me on Soundcloud:

This is how I use the headsetLike a Neanderthal. The EPOS offers Bluetooth, a USB adapter and many other features, but I tediously connected it to my gaming PC with a USB cable.

I don’t use the software that came with it either. I tried to use it, but I didn’t see any added value for me.

Epos itself is that you can connect EPOS H3Pro to any gaming device via different connection options:

This is how the headset behaves towards me: Very quarrelsome and a little passive aggressive.

I don’t know why, but even though my headset is connected to my computer, my headset has a compulsive need to regularly tell me how much battery charge it has.

When that happens, there’s a short whisper that cuts every other note, before the headphone voice announces, in the tone of a Deutsche Bahn employee, how long the battery will last.

I swear: I’ve seen the headset wait for the worst possible time to give me this completely useless piece of information. At one point I was lounging in my bed having just dozed off when my headset screamed information at me.

The headset gets scared if you ignore it for too long

What else is the headset doing to annoy me? At my job, I sometimes play videos from Twitch or YouTube back and forth to hear exactly what is being said.

For a long time, the headset got used to swallowing audio from the first few seconds of a video and only kicking back after 3.4 seconds.

Also, if you ignore the headset for a long period of time, say after a day’s work, and then try to use it to listen to music, it sometimes gets hard and makes no sound at all. Only once do I reset it, but fortunately this can be done with a button on the right speaker, as I noticed after a while.

Especially when it comes to calls, the headset likes to switch to deaf and mute or hiss loudly until I manually unplug it from the computer and plug it back in again.

I love my headset, but it resists

But when I told my boss, David, how much I love my headset but how counterintuitive it is to my love, he muttered coldly that it sounded like a manufacturing error to him. I have to contact support and look for an alternative.

But I can’t bring myself to just replace the headphone. It feels so good and so right, like it was made for me and my ears.
