Overall, we liked the build quality and design of the EKSA E5000 Pro Gaming Headsets. The combination of metal and plastic on the earcups, good quality metal frame and green accents all around give this pair a futuristic look and feel. The earcups are large with very good cushioning and the cover the ears completely.
The highlight feature of the headset is definitely the 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound. We liked this feature especially playing FPS games as the sound effects make the game play much more immersive. You can further tune the sound output using the Driver Software (available only for Windows). If you don’t want to fiddle with all this software stuff, there is a dedicated button on the headset to switch between stereo and surround sound mode.
Microphone is detachable and has a secondary noise cancellation microphone. A dedicated AI engine will cancel the surrounding noise.
Listening to music gave us mixed results as the bass is not powerful. But you can enjoy these headsets for gaming on PC, Mobile, XBOX, PS4 or PS5. If you are looking for a wired gaming headset with good build quality and stylish design, then the EKSA E5000 Pro Gaming Headset are a decent choice. You also get the benefit of 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and ENC.
