Tech Up! EKSA E7000 Fenrir Gaming Headset

By Luke Hemming 11.02.2023

 Every time an EKSA product graces Cubed3, the result is almost always the same: high quality and comfort at a budget price. With EKSA being the headset of choice for this reviewer for a long time now, and with the EKSA E7000 Fenrir Gaming Headset hitting all of the right notes again, the trend sees no sign of bucking.

As always, EKSA hasn't considered the subtle approach and hit the shelf with a bold design that sets it apart from some of the sleeker headsets on the market. This very much comes down to personal choice again - it really does make a statement having these on your bonce with a bright green light set up that (kind of) resembles some sinister looking eyes when alone in the dark, potentially playing Alone in the Dark. The brave choices have always been a big attraction personally and the more garish the headset the better, it's easy to tell everything is in working order when the light beams.
With a big tick on the design front, comfort is next up. Worn during some recent YouTube rabbit hole experiences as well as some late-night gaming, it quickly becomes forgotten that a rather hefty piece of kit is resting over the ears. The padded earpieces are (as always) cosy to wear and not at all noticeable. Exactly what is needed from this type of equipment. Straps adjust as needed and any head is going to have no issues having them on.  Sticking with the braided cable is also a personal favourite adding a bit of quality to something so affordable.
Previously, criticism was brought on what felt like some rather dubious design choices by EKSA, branding their earphones with designs and logos that wouldn't look out of place on an energy drink or 90s baggy chain and wallet combo. Here however, there are no complaints. From case to phones, these ooze style with a cobra (get it?) shaped casing with the nicest looking charging light setup seen on a product like this.

The EKSA E7000 Fenrir Gaming Headset caters to all gaming platforms by being multi-platform, expected in this day and age, but always appreciated. What was surprising, however, was what was nestled away in the bottom of the box: the old green speaker and pink mic connectors. It's comforting to see that the old folk among us are still being catered for with their barely functioning machines. Perfect for some late night Encarta researched homework.
Finally, but most importantly, sound quality. As always, this is what sets EKSA apart and the reason it's always a delight to review them. For the low price point of around £35, the sound quality is as good as headsets double that. An excellent range ensures that, whether using it for its intended purpose of gaming or just chilling out, listening to music and writing reviews, nothing is missed. Heavy bass, high trebles, it's all here. Topping that off with a microphone that also delivers, it's the perfect pack (like a wolf pack, see?). One criticism is that with a USB connection on the headset, it would have been nice to be able to tweak any settings through a PC app, something other products by EKSA do offer (try the E5000 for this).

 It seems like every time an EKSA product is reviewed, repeating one's self is pretty much a guarantee. Thankfully, that repetition is always what any gamer would want to hear: a very affordable price point offering quality in all areas that rivals anything twice its price. If on a budget, look no further than the EKSA E7000 Fenrir Gaming Headset for a long lasting piece of equipment that will only need to be replaced when EKSA brings out another great piece of hardware.
