The EKSA E900 Pro Gaming Headset retails for $39.99, yet has the looks, comfort, and surprising performance of a more expensive headset. EKSA is one of the top brands by volume on Amazon for gaming headsets purely because of the low price and overall positive reviews from owners.
Normally I cover more expensive audio equipment but I wanted to see what the fuss was all about with the E900 Pro. Not everyone can afford high end audio equipment, or even a $100 headset, so it’s important to understand what you can get for less than $50 and if there’s anything worth considering.
Upon opening the EKSA E900 Pro, I was greeted with a protective pouch holding the headset and all of its accessories. This was great value add, in addition to the aux cable, USB cable, y-splitter, and detachable mic. The connections allow you to use this on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and mobile (with headphone jack of course).
Perhaps most surprising to me was the comfort. The soft memory foam ear pads are forgiving enough to wear glasses for hours at a time with ease, and the headband was padded all the way around. The ear cups are large enough that my ears weren’t pressing against the driver baffle (a common issue with affordable gaming headsets) which was great! I found that long gaming sessions weren’t an issue at all.
Mic performance was stellar as far as clarity and tone goes, only with a slight hiss on USB mode. The hiss was present but faint. I don’t think anyone would complain about it on the other side, as the mic sounds good overall. The mic was sensitive enough to be used on console and PC, and had a decent amount of dynamic range to it which reduces distortion if you have a loud voice.
Sound quality was on the better end of my expectations. This headset has a warmer sound profile, with rich and thunderous bass that dug deeper (lower frequencies) than I expected it to. It wasn’t too overpowering though, as I found the mids to be acceptable for various listening scenarios. The highs were a bit veiled (flat treble/laid back sounding) if anything, but I prefer this over the overly-harsh treble that some other gaming headsets provide. You can only provide so much value/sound at this price point but I feel EKSA is delivering a ton of value here, all things considered. For ultimate FPS players looking for the most competitive sound you can get for footsteps under $50, other headsets out there may offer slightly more detail at the expensive of other features such as comfort, mic quality, or lack of bass. Just keep that in mind if you’re weighing your options! This particular sound profile is very forgiving for many types of use cases, and the bass helps a lot for those using these to watch movies or other rich content.
Overall this E900 Pro was a pleasant surprise, and is an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a good value under $50. It ticks all the boxes, and even exceeds in multiple important areas!
