The E900 Pro 2-in-1 Headset is a new product from EKSA a relatively new (2018) Hong Kong-based company that specialises in gaming audio equipment.
I was lucky enough to be able to review their (wired) gaming headset. Was it a satisfying auditory experience? Keep reading this rapid review to find out.
The headset arrived in a very well packaged box. The cables and microphone extension were all packed into a form-fitted foam cube which was nestled nicely between the headset ears. There was also a (faux) leather carry case that came with it which is perfect for use when on the go.
Along with the headset and the carry case, I also received a headphone stand. This two-piece set slots together easily and was a nice way to store the unit when it was not being used.
It is worth noting that the packaging arrived very dented. This was not the fault of the people at EKSA but rather the delivery company who have been made aware of the problem. There was no damage to the unit.
The E900 Pro 2-in-1 Headset was ready to use out of the box. Just plug in the mic, plug in the power cable and off you go. I know some people may discredit the fact that this unit isn’t wireless. For me, however, using it to watch twitch or to play the Switch in bed, the wire was no issue whatsoever.
The unit also came with both a standard 3.5mm plug and a USB lead. As a result, the headset offers a wider range of audio options.
A Comfortable Gaming Experience
It can often be all too easy to just put on a pair of headphones and think they are working just fine. However, there is more to it than that. I found the E900 Pro 2-in-1 headset to be one of the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever used. The memory foam cushions create a gentle pressure-free connection with your head. Likewise, there is no pinch or tightness from the rest of the unit.
The overall headset is so lightweight it is easy to forget I was wearing it. I work from home and so used these all day long, both for work and gaming sessions and at the end of it, I felt great. There was none of the aches or heaviness I had experienced after using my work-issued headset.
The audio quality of the E900 Pro was top notch. Even when turned up to full volume, the sound was crisp and never lost any tonal quality. That being said, I didn’t often crank it up all the way, choosing a nice midrange volume on the wheel.
There were no noise-cancelling effects with the headphones, but that didn’t bother me too much. I’m still not fully sold on the idea of having all my heading cut off when using headphones. I’m a little too jumpy for that.
It was nice having the audio controls positioned on the earmuff itself. Similarly, the mute button for the microphone was very handy and well placed. The clear differentiation meant there was never a question about whether the mic was muted or not.
The only comment I have to make is that the microphone was incredibly sensitive. I was on a work call (testing the headset quality) and my colleague was able to tell me what my partner’s kids were whispering about in the next room. The door was open but still, they were a good 15 feet away and talking softly, yet she could hear them clear as day. This did put me off using the headset for any meetings. Given that this is predominantly a gaming headset, I don’t see this being a big issue for many people.
One other feature I really liked was how the mic was not only detatchable but locked into place. This meant there was never any question about whether the connection was secure.
Overall, I have to say this was a very comfortable headset. However, the over-sensitive mic is something that makes me hesitant to use it too often. Although I am sure there is a setting on my machine that can help me here. But from an audio perspective, I cannot fault this headset at all.
