QCY indicates that its latest headphones come for a fraction of the price one might expect for audio accessories of their top-end specs and features. They include up-to-date Bluetooth technology, "Hi-Res" Audio and active noise cancellation (ANC). The H3s have been unveiled with a well-timed additional discount.

QCY purports to make high-end audio "accessible" with the new H3 "all-in-one" over-ear headphones. They work over Bluetooth 5.3 as well as a wired connection, and offer dual-device connectivity over the former for good measure.

The H3s also boast hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) rated for a nearly class-leading 43 decibel (dB) level of unwanted sound, as well as a "3-mic" system for clear voice calls. Their actual "Hi-Res Audio" playback functions are handled by drivers that, while referred to as "oversized", are of a fairly standard 40mm in size.

The H3 are also backed to "reveal sound quality beyond CD-level" with a "frequency response range of 40kHz" (which might be where it stops, although QCY never mentions where it starts; then again, a sensitivity of 99dB is also mentioned).

The new headphones are also estimated to get up to 60 hours of battery life (albeit with ANC off), and come with their own 3.5mm and USB type-C cables. For all that, QCY values the H3s at US$49.99 - however, they have conveniently launched with a 20% Cyber Monday discount to ship for US$39.99 in blue, black or white on Amazon.
