The EKSA E3Z Air Joy Plus Headset is one of the best priced headset on the market! This headset provides 7.1 surround sound, environmental noise cancelation, and ultra lightness!
Lets start reviewing this headset that could possibly be the best priced headset on the market!
This ultra-light headset, with its lower price compared to some of EKSA’s other products, is amazing! This headset which comes in at around $50 USD, is ultra-light (204g), it has environmental noise cancellation, which is amazing considering its price. It also has 7.1 surround sound which allows you to be immersed even more into your gaming experience. The headset is also equipped with 40mm drivers, and a unidirectional microphone. The headset has a wired connection, and it is bound to connect to any device in your home. This headset is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10 PC, Nintendo Switch, Laptop, Mac, and even smartphones. The headset plugs into your device via a USB-C connection, but in the box is included a USB-A adapter cable. The cable is 2 meters or 6.6 feet, not including the adapter cable, which adds another 2.6 feet to your cable, which means you should not run into cable length issues. Included in the box along with the headset an adapter, is a user’s manual in English, French, German, and Chinese, which has a guide to set up this headset on any device, and a windscreen for the mic, which will block some background noise, and prevent dirt and moister from getting into the mic. It also blocks unwanted sounds such as heavy breathing and wind.
This headset has an over ear ultra-light design which allows you to practically forget that you’re wearing them, while delivering quality sound. As I mentioned above this is an ultra-light headset that comes in at around 204g. This is nice if you are a switch or mobile gamer, though the lightness can make the headset slightly flimsy. This headset has an adjustable headband to allow you the perfect fit, and breathable protein earpads for extra comfort. On the headset itself there is volume control and a mute button which is nice. The microphone on this headset is a unidirectional noise canceling microphone. The wired connection makes it a bit awkward for mobile or switch gaming if you’re on the move, especially with the long cable. This is where a wireless connection like the EKSA E910s or the GT1 Cobras (check those review out HERE and HERE) would come in handy. Overall, this headset has a solid design even though it can be a little flimsy.
Performance wise, I believe this headset rocks it for its price! As I mentioned before, this headset comes in around $50 USD. For that price you get 7.1 surround sound, environmental noise cancelation, ultra-compatibility, and much more. Compared to the EKSA E910s, this headset is not far behind, and for almost half the ESKA E910’s price, it’s a killer deal! This headset provides a crisp, clear, sound, and you are able to distinguish and separate each minute sound from the others coming through the headset which immerses you even more into the game you’re playing. This headset also has amazing bass for its price. The microphone is another matter, compared to other EKSA headset mics lacks in performance but performs well enough for pretty much anything you want to do. It’s not like the microphone is horrible, but it is lacking in quality, and it does not live up to the standers of the sound quality you get from headset itself, but the quality of sound makes up for the mic.
Overall, this headset is a great deal for its price. The lightness of the headset is one of its greatest strengths, but it also might be its greatest weakness, because it can be flimsy at time and fall of your head if you move to fast. The headset sound quality itself it really good for the price you pay. You also get great bass with the 40mm drivers. It would be nice if this headset could be wirelessly connected, especially since this headset is focused on switch and mobile gamers.
