Banking on its claim of powerful gaming headset features, I tried the new EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro gaming headset to experience for myself if the claim is indeed true.
There are lots of reasons why people play video games; for some, it is to de-stress after a long day at work; for others, it is to escape the world they live in and take refuge in the fantasy world where their favorite protagonist vanquishes evil and saves the world.
Whatever your reason is, getting a good gaming headset is one of the best things you can do if you want to be totally immersed and bring your gaming experience to the next level. The EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro gaming headset features premium packaging. Enclosed in a purple matte box with a neon green accent, it comes with a couple of compartments that house the cables and microphone.
The aesthetics are beautiful and any nerd would easily identify the Konami code on the flip cover of the box. The main hardware, the headset itself, is placed in a gray silk drawstring with the EKSA logo written in purple. Its ear cups have cushions that seem like they are made of premium memory foam and big enough to prevent strain from long hours of gaming.
The headset also comes with an adjustable headband to accommodate a wide range of gamers’ head sizes and to provide a different level of comfort. For streamers and even those who love to play their favorite games in a fancy way, the tiny neon green coils are perfect, along with the neon green lights on both ears that can be switched on or off at any time.
I tried the EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro gaming headset for a few hours with “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” and I’m impressed with how I enjoyed the game. I appreciated the game more, especially its audio design while wearing the gaming headset.
Fight scenes are much more visceral, the Igni sounds more like a sudden surge of flame and I can even hear the quen shield burst when I upgraded it. With the EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro, I can feel the violence as well as the crisp sound of magic exploding.
The storms in the game sound and feel so real; the sounds of the trees during thunderstorms, the sizzle of an object when hit with Igni–all make you feel that you are not only inside the game, but you are the Witcher Geralt. Heightened sense of hearing and an authentic witcher feel all of those I felt for the first time despite having played the game for several years–all because of the humble gaming headset in my ears.
The EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro also features a more than decent microphone, which is essential for online games. I tried playing the mobile battle royale title PUBG using the gaming headset and the mic did not fail me. To test its claim that it has a noise cancellation feature, I tried playing while sitting in a busy coffee shop.
Its noise cancellation technology, thanks to the ENC chipset, its noise cancellation technology allowed me to clearly hear what my playmates were saying despite the noise around me. The EHSA E5000 Pro gaming headset houses an AI-powered environmental noise cancellation technology that delivers studio-level voice clarity.
The headset weakens the environmental noise by 96%, while its adjustable anti-spray microphone filters background noise. The EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro gaming headset is multi-platform, meaning it can be used for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices running on iOS and Android operating systems.
The package includes a detachable microphone, 3.5 mm audio cable, Type-C cable and USB cable. This multi-platform headset features a One-Key switch that switches from 7.1 surround sound to 3D Stereo Sound for those who want to listen to the sound.
With a plethora of features the gamers and pro gamers would definitely enjoy, the EKSA Star Engine E5000 Pro is an excellent addition to any gaming setup. It is very flexible and comes at a very reasonable price–truly a bang for the buck!
