If you’re a gamer, you know finding a right gaming headset within a good price range isn’t easy. In this article, we’ll be reviewing one of the best gaming headsets out there. It has been in the top selling products on Amazon for a while now. Yes! you guessed it. I’m talking about the latest EKSA E900 Pro. I’ve been looking forward to receiving this product. But it was delayed a bit because of the pandemic situation. But just this morning I finally got my hands on it. Used it throughout the day and honestly, I’m pretty content with it. But anyway, let’s start reviewing EKSA E900 Pro in detail.
The headphone is exceptionally well built and comfortable. The body is made of black metal, plastic and leather. It would be a shame not to discuss the color combo of red LED lights and the black body which make it look attractive. The quality of materials used in the built make it look a lot more expensive than it actually is. There is no way one can guess that you got EKSA E900 pro for under $50!
The package comes with the following
- EKSA E900 Pro Gaming Headset
- Pluggable Microphone
- 3.55 mm Audio Cable
- 3.55 mm Audio Cable Splitter
- USB cable
- Operating Instruction
- Carry Pouch
Audio Quality / 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
First thing that matters about a headset is of course the quality of sound it offers. And well, EKSA E900 Pro aces it. What makes it different is that in contrast to EKSA E900 Stereo, EKSA E900 PRO offers 7.1 virtual surround sound experience. While playing games, 360-degrees positional sound is present and you can easily detect all your enemies. But make sure you connect the headphones using USB connectors. Because when you connect it using 3.55 mm jack, the sound quality is not that good. Also, if you’re someone who’s looking to buy this headphone for music too, don’t buy it. It is designed specifically for gaming and offers an excellent experience for gamers. If you buy it for music, you’re going to be sorry later.
EKSA E900 PRO comes with a detachable microphone which helps you as you only have to attach it only when you want to use it. In addition, the microphone is flexible so you can move it around and set it exactly like you want. You don’t have to be fearful of you accidentally breaking it. Moreover, the microphone offers noise cancellation. The audio quality is simply amazing. Honestly, this is one the of the best features about this product. The audio quality helps you communicate with your team members or trash talk your opponents with clarity. Well, what is gaming without trash talk anyway? And if you’re going to trash talk, make sure your opponents hear it clearly right? This headphone helps you do exactly that.
Well-Padded Headband and Ear Cups
Another problem for gamers is excessive sweating while wearing headphones, especially during summers. However, EKSA E900 PRO counters it well. The well-padded headband and ear cups are so comfortable and do not make you sweat at all. I wore this for 5 hours continuously today, that too in the heat of July. It didn’t get sweaty or uncomfortable at all during that time.
Are you a PC gamer or do you prefer to game on console. Do you prefer Xbox or PS4? Well, it doesn’t matter. You can use this headphone on all the platforms. However, the way you might use it may differ. On Mac, you might have to connect it using 3.5mm jack. This means you won’t be able to benefit from the 7.1 surround sound feature of this headphone. Similarly, on Xbox One, you can’t connect it using USB connector. Whereas, this is not the problem on Windows PC and PS4. You can enjoy these headphones with all their features on these platforms.
Convenient Audio Control
There are audio controls on the headphone. There is a USB port, 3.55 mm jack, a mic mute button, a volume adjustment on the left headset which makes it easy to control the audio. Another great thing is that the 3.5 mm jack has a locking mechanism. Meaning that when you plug in the cable and rotate it 90 degrees, it locks in place. So, you can move around as much as you want but the cable won’t come out. Similarly, when you have to remove the cable, simply rotate it back 90 degrees and pull it out.
Stylish and Lightweight Design
These headphones have a stylish and lightweight design. The aluminium frame, the leather and the red LED lights make it look so classy. They have a great feel and are very comfortable. One doesn’t get tired of wearing them. You really don’t get this look in such a price range.
Official 7.1 Surround Sound Driver
EKSA E900 PRO comes with its very own 7.1 Surround Sound Software on PC. This software enhances the sound and can be downloaded directly from its site. It has the options for EQ, adding different effects to the sound, controlling the mic gain and Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound of course. In fact, there are about 3 such softwares. The new one, however, is compatible with only Windows 7 and Windows 10. Since, I use windows 8.1, I went with the older software. The results are great and gives you a greater control over the sound quality. You can set it according to your needs to get the sound quality you require.
Cons of EKSA E900 PRO
Overall, it’s a great product. But, like every other product, this has its cons too. Firstly, audio quality on 3.5mm jack is dull. If you’re using these headphones, make sure you connect it using the USB connectors. Secondly, because of this 3.5 mm jack issue, you might not be able to experience these headphones at their best on Mac and Xbox one. And lastly, these headphones don’t do well with music. But it’s not really fair to judge them based on their performance with music because they are designed specifically for gaming. Other than that, I’m quite satisfied.
If you’re a gamer and looking to buy a good, comfortable headphones in a range of $50, I say these are the best ones you can get. The design is good, the sound quality is excellent and price is really affordable. It offers 7.1 surround sound and helps you detect your enemy better. This ultimately improves your performance in gaming. Not to forget its own software to help you get the exact sound quality you need. As for me, I’m very content with my purchase.
