I will start off with thanking Amazon for very fast and careful delivery as the container box doesn't have a dent on it. Great service by Amazon.

Okay, first of all bear in mind that this is a gaming headset hence audiophiles would get disappointed. Eksa E900 is a Virtual 7.1 surround headset with detachable mic, usb and 3.5mm support. The driver size is 50mm. There is a single accent red led both side of ear and they turn on only with USB connectivity. The LEDs do not blink or change colors. The headband is self-adjusting. This headset works with PC, Mac, Xbox, Ps, Mobile and ipod because of the CTIA standard 3.5mm jack support. Also one 3.5mm mic + speaker splitter is provided with the headset so you can use without the usb on PC. But there is one thing to mention. The 7.1 surround only works in PC if you use the usb. If you connect the headset with 3.5mm jack to your pc it will work as a Stereo headset. There is no driver cd provided with the box therefore you have to download it from the official website. Plug-n-Play works fine but I would highly recommend to install the driver as it has special features available on the driver. There is no in-line mic/vol control on the usb cable but is available on the 3.5mm cable. It may be deal-breaker for some but I personally loved the idea having no in-line controls on the usb cable as it affects weight on the cable also the volume rocker dial tends to get damaged overtime on use. Both cable lengths same (1.5m perhaps) and it's adequate for PC also other devices. There is no way to disable the LEDs so they always will be on if connected to usb.
For price less than 2600 inr this is the best build quality you can get. Moment after you open up the box you can feel the premiumness of this product. The material is fibre not plastic. Yes, the cusions are made of Memory foams which can be seen in more pricey headphone. The memory foam is best for prolonged use (more than 4-5hours straight) as these are softer than sponges and doesn't cause sweating. You will feel the headset on your head but you wouldn't feel the cusions pushing on your ears, honestly. To be truthful, I thought the cables wouldn't be that good as they advertised but I'm amazed that they exceeded my expectations completely. The cables aren't braided but they are smooth as good quality cable can be. These are matte finished. The 3.5mm pins are gold plated but the usb pins aren't - they are made of steel. The cushion sitting under headband also made of memory foams and provides great deal of comfort over your head. The mic is noise cancelling but I'm not sure if it's boom mic or not. There are locks both on mic and 3.5mm input ports on the headset and locks the cables perfectly. Top of everything, the best thing about this headset is that it weights only 250gm(approx.) without the cables connected and it makes the headphone so much comfortable on your head and ears. The red wire connecting two speakers are nicely attached to the headset and doesn't move if you flick or pull. That is a sign of good finished product.
