Headphones that will make it hard to stop gaming.
(Updated on January 25, 2022)
EKSA E900 Pro
Cosmic Byte Equinox Europa
Redgear Cosmo 7.1
(Best under ₹2000)
Eksa shows up more than once in this list of gaming headphones under 3000 rs. While surround sound may not a necessity at this price, it is always a welcome addition. Additionally, most headphones mentioned here offer a noise-cancelling microphone. So communicating with your gaming buddies won’t be a problem.
Best Overall: EKSA E900 Pro – 8.4
While the headset’s fit is great and its sound is good, there are some feedback issues related to the EKSA E900 Pro for the gamers.
With a stylish sleek paint job and detachable USB and 3.5mm cables, this headset is compatible with Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. It can connect to mobile devices and even your PC. The frame is made of aluminium so it’s sturdy and adjustable, meaning it fits people with large heads.
They use are soft leather earpads, which are removable, making them easy to replace. It is easy to handle and does not feel heavy or bulky, and can be worn comfortably for long periods. By detaching the mic, which is equipped with noise-cancelling technology, your teammates will be able to hear you clearly as it filters out ambient noise.
The headphones come with a USB to USB-C cable with a sound card, so users can experience 7.1 surround sound wherever they connect to their PC. It has a rich sound with potent bass response. While the headset offers red LEDs in keeping with the colour scheme, some may prefer RGB. You can only access LEDs when connected via USB.
To use EKSA’s surround sound feature, your computer must be running Windows and have the app installed. It is quite simple to use except for this download. A leather carry bag comes with it so it’s easier to travel with.
Cosmic Byte Equinox Europa – 8.2
As the Cosmic Byte Equinox Europa has a USB port, you cannot connect to devices that require a 3.5mm jack. This headset is pretty good for gaming, the bass response is decent, sounds of footsteps or gunshots sound powerful enough. High-frequency sounds are clear and precise.
The audio performance of this headphone also seems to change slightly depending on the game you’re playing. A virtualized surround sound system is used to deliver this and it ends up sounding okay. Tweaking the sound profile using an equalizer is a potential solution.
The headphones are pretty comfortable and have sufficient padding on both the headband and the earcups, although you may feel pain or sweating after extended use. Furthermore, it has some pretty cool RGB lighting. I’m not a huge fan of the inline controller as it doesn’t always work correctly.
I like that the wire is braided, even though the length is relatively short for a PC. This headphone offers relatively good value for the price. Because the earcups do not fold, they take up quite a bit of space if you want to take them on a trip.
EKSA E900 – 8.0
These headphones feature an exceptional sound quality and comfortable fit, as well as a removable noise-cancelling mic.
The EKSA E900 is a great gaming headset for a reasonable price. Despite its sound quality and loudness, the headphones can handle a broad range of frequencies. Not only is the microphone bendable, but it is also removable.
Additionally, the noise-cancelling mic works extraordinarily well, it does a good job of blocking ambient noise, you’ll be able to communicate clearly with your online gaming friends. You will definitely hear your music if the headphones are on high or moderate volume, as there is a fair amount of sound leakage when wearing the headphones.
Consequently, I would probably not wear them in public. But they are excellent headphones for gaming on your consoles or PC. They use a 3.5mm plug, meaning that you can use them for gaming on mobile devices and tablets.
A separate splitter cable and a faux leather carrying pouch are included with this headset. Being able to adapt to a broader range of products with the splitter is great. Several of my things neatly fit inside the faux leather pouch, making it durable and stylish while at the same time becoming functional.
Alternative: EKSA E3000
The Eksa E3000 is a decent alternative to the E900. You don’t get surround sound but you do get a 3.5mm jack that makes this headphone compatible with several devices.
The build quality is remarkable, both the metal headband and the braided cables are of exceptional quality. In addition, the headphones are lightweight as well, so you can watch movies or play games for longer than usual.
It is very easy to hear the footsteps and anticipate the enemy location when you are gaming. So according to me. The noise isolation is good, no background noise gets in when there’s audio playing. A great combination of treble, bass, and vocals can be witnessed while listening to music as well. Additionally, the RGB lighting is pretty cool but lacks customization.
With True Wireless Earbuds, you get both wireless and noise-cancelling capabilities.
Best under ₹2000: Redgear Cosmo 7.1 – 8.4
In addition to its aesthetic appeal and performance, the Redgear Cosmo 7.1 also has great sound output.
Here’s a gaming headset from Redgear. This time, we’re looking at the Cosmo 7.1. This headset takes the Redgear Cloak and makes some tweaks to it. It compares favourably with Cloak when it comes to the quality of construction. An unusual headband design delivers a great deal of comfort without feeling cumbersome on your head.
You can easily surround your ears with these earcups since they’re quite large. The microphone is located on the left earcup, and if you don’t want it near your mouth, you can also move it away. You do get 7.1 surround sound with the Redgear Cosmo. As far as performance goes; overall, it does a decent job with audio output and accuracy/positioning.
It has RGB LEDs mounted on the back of the earcups which provide a gamer-centric look. It connects to the PC via a micro-USB port. The headphones can’t be used on tablets or smartphones because of this. The volume, mic, and RGB LED controls are all found along the cable.
Its cables and controls are rather robust, and its USB housings are really tough. After a few hours of use, your ears may sweat due to the insufficient breathability of the earcups. A lot of these issues can be attributed to the design and padding of the earcups.
Eono USB – 7.9
The lightweight design of this headset makes them remarkably comfortable to wear for extended periods. You can easily adjust the headband to fit your head as needed. Furthermore, the LEDs give it a stylish look. With a 3.5mm jack port, it works with smartphones, consoles and PCs. The USB port is used to control the RGB LEDs.
The microphone does an excellent job of capturing speech. Despite moderate background noise, your friends would hear you clearly. It also has a mic mute switch, which is an excellent addition.
The build quality of these headphones isn’t something worth bragging about, but for the price, it performs within expectations. Although the body is made from plastic, it has a tactile finish which gives it a good in-hand feel.
You can store this headset in a pouch. And if you come across any issues with the headset, simply contact the seller through an email and you can expect a swift reply with solutions. Overall, I found this headset to be satisfactory.
Are Wireless headphones better than Wired headphones for Gaming?
Generally, wired headphones perform better when used for gaming. The reason is that headphones that are wired have lower latency. It’s especially good for those who feel most comfortable gaming at their desk. On the other hand, people who game while staying fairly away from their setup, appreciate the flexibility that comes with wireless headphones.
It’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between wired and wireless audio quality. Cheap wired or wireless headphones and earbuds usually use inferior drivers.
Wireless technology has become increasingly popular. In recent years, manufacturers have moved away from cables and ports and adopted the wireless model. Gaming headsets are a great example of this. Although wireless technology has advanced greatly, we still recommend using wired headsets.

Zebronics Zeb-Orion – The Zebronics Zeb-Orion is a solid pair of gaming headphones. The design is eye-catching, and the build quality is also pretty good. Though, we aren’t a fan of the chrome glossy finish found on the earcups. Also, the mic is neither detachable nor does it have noise-cancellation.
JBL Quantum 100 – The Quantum 100 from JBL has a durable construction with surround sound. It also possesses a great microphone for the price. Also, it has a bassy sound signature, but you can use an equalizer to tweak and amplify other frequencies.
EKSA E3 – A fairly simply looking pair of gaming headphones from Eksa. It has a light and comfortable construction with a noise-cancelling microphone which is also detachable. The headset’s standout feature is its headband.
GAMDIAS Hebe M1 – The GAMDIAS Hebe M1 looks similar to the Redgear Cloak. This headset comes with surround sound and a retractable microphone. The ear padding is perfectly cut to the shape of your ear, while this does improve isolation, it reduces breathability.
AmazonBasics Gaming Headset – The AmazonBasics Gaming Headset is a straightforward gaming headset with a flexible headband. It uses a single 3.5mm jack with volume controls along the cable. You don’t get any RGB LEDs.
