If you want a pair of earbuds that look cool and have good music and gaming sound quality, then the EKSA GT1 Cobra True Wireless Earbuds are the one for you.
So, let’s get to reviewing the EKSA GT1 Cobra True wireless earbuds!
The EKSA GT1 Cobra Wireless Earbuds was sent to me by EKSA with the EKSA E910 Wireless Headset (You can check out that review HERE)
These earbuds come in at around $80 USD which is a pretty good price for a pair of true wireless earbuds. These earbuds come with a 38MS ultra-low latency chip inside, which provides a smooth gaming experience. These earbuds also have touch/tap control, Bluetooth 5.0, auto paring, voice assistant, 6 hours of playback time (make that an incredible 36 with the charging case), and a splash resistance IPX4 design. The case is charged via a USB-C port from the back. The box contains earbuds, a USB-C charging cable, three sizes of ear tips, and a user’s manual in four languages (English, French, Italian and Spanish).
These charging/storage case, and earbuds have a slick design that replicates that of a cobra’s head. The LED charging lights on the case and the power LED lights on the earbuds themselves that mimic the cobra’s eyes are a nice touch. The case lid and the earbuds have magnets build into them, so they snap right into place (no fumbling around required). The case design is a bit big and bulky, and it doesn’t fit into your pocket very good. This is at the tradeoff of having 36 hours of extra charging capacity which is great for the traveler. Once you find the size of ear tips that fit you the best, it will these earbuds are comfortable to wear for long periods of times.
These earbuds provide a great music and gaming experience. They have two modes: (1) gaming mode and (2) music mode. I could not find that much difference in quality between these modes, but I did notice the music mode adds in a little more bass. These earbuds have a crisp realistic sound, and they also have fairly good noise cancelation. These earbuds come with a 38ms ultra-low latency chip, which provides a smooth gaming experience. The mic quality is decent but not as good as it’s the EKSA E910. One unique feature is the touch sensor which allows you to use finger taps for play/pause, accept/hang up, swap game/music mode, request voice assistant, and to reject an incoming call. The tap patterns took me a while to get right and could be a bit more sensitive. These earbuds have up to 6 hours of listening time on their own, but if you have your charging case with you, you can get up to 36 hours of listening time!
Overall, these earbuds have great quality sound and have a ton of listening time for those on the go and who travel a lot. I hope you found this review useful, and if you have any question comment below and we would be happy to answer any question you have!
