Bottom Line
If you are looking for an ultra-lightweight headset with no concern about latency for your mobile gaming needs, then the EKSA Air Joy Plus Gaming Headset is a very good option with excellent 7.1 surround sound effects and soft and large over-the-ear style earcups. For music needs, the EKSA Air Joy Plus is not the best option as the output is relatively flat.

Latency is always a concern with wireless gaming earbuds and headsets. Even if the manufacturers claim very low latency, there will be a noticeable lag with wireless headphones. So, many mobile and PC gamers still prefer wired headsets (usually, over-the-ear type).

But the problem with most over-the-ear style headphones is that they are bulky and cause fatigue after wearing them for some time. So, the obvious thing to do is to look for a lightweight headset. Here comes the EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset. As the name suggests, it is an ultra-lightweight headset designed for mobile gaming and it is a wired type.

This is the review of the EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset. We are writing this review after properly testing the headset with gaming (mobile and PC) and music. Continue reading the review to find out more about the same.

What Do We Get?

Let us kickoff this review by taking a look at the contents of the package. The first thing in the box is the headsets themselves. As they are wired type headsets, the connectivity cable (which is USB Type-C) comes attached to the headsets. Next, we have a USB Type-A (male) to USB Type-C extension cable.

Then we have the user manual, which is in multiple languages. Finally,  we have the carry pouch.

After taking out the headsets from the package and holding them in our hands for the first time, they felt very lightweight. The earcups are nice and large with very soft earmuffs. They swivel left – right and slightly up and down, which makes it easy while wearing them or storing them flat. Sadly, they are not a foldable type. The headband is thin with decent cushioning and it is also adjustable.

Apart from the main headband region, the headset is designed with red accents. Even the outside of the earcups has a red-colored LED built-in that has a breathing effect during operation.All the buttons, controls, and wires are locatedon the left earcup while there is nothing on the right earcup.

The wired connectivity in this headset is based on USB Type-C and does not use the 3.5mm jack. We felt this is a good option as almost all the latest smartphones and laptops come with a USB Type-C port and the 3.5mm audio jack has become an option.

The length of the USB Type-C cable is 2.0m (6.6ft). We felt that this is slightly longer than we might require and it gets even longer if we use the extension cable (which is another 0.8m in length).

The next important thing is the microphone and it is located next to the USB-C cable. Unlike the EKSA E910 Gaming Headset, the microphone is not retractable and stays protruded all the time. But the good thing is you can easily adjust it.

As mentioned earlier, all the controls are on the left earcup. First, there is the volume adjustment wheel. It has a textured finish and you can easily find it with touchy-feely. Slightly above the volume control wheel, you have the microphone mute button.

Push the button to mute the microphone. It stays recessed when we mute the microphone. Push it once again to unmute the microphone.

There is a hole adjacent to the microphone button. This contains the omnidirectional noise cancellation microphone, which we thought is an excellent feature of the EKSA Air Joy Plus Gaming Headset.

We tested the EKSA Air Joy Plus Gaming Headsets with mobiles (Samsung, OnePlus, and Xiaomi) and Windows laptops. As they are wired headsets with USB Type-C connection, we have to make sure that all our devices must have a USB Type-C port.


First of all, wearing the EKSA Air Joy Plus Gaming Headsets is very comfortable. They are very light in weight (at just 204g) and the soft earcups help the case. During our testing, we wore the headsets for a very long period and there was no headache or fatigue, thanks to its ultra-lightweight design.

Mobile gaming with EKSA Air Joy Plus headsets is very good. The surround sound effects do make a difference in FPS-style games. There is no lag or latency issue with these wired headsets and you can instantly feel the sound as soon as you trigger something on the screen.

The included microphone is a good addition but the sensitivity is a little bit low. You have to place the microphone very close to your mouth for it to pickup the voice. Another good feature is its noise cancellation feature. EKSA calls this ENC, which is short for Environmental Noise Cancellation.

Apart from the main microphone, which is usually near your mouth, there is a secondary microphone right next to the microphone mute button. This is an omnidirectional microphone and it picks up the ambient noise from the room.

Now, the interesting part. The ENC engine of the headset transmits only the sound captured by the main microphone and cancels the sounds captured by the secondary microphone. The output is a clear transmission of your voice, which is noise-free. You can use this feature even when you are in a public place as it cancels the surrounding sound.

Apart from gaming, we also tested the headset with music. while gaming, we enabled the surround sound mode and for music testing, we switched to stereo mode. The headset lacks punchy bass and bass lovers will be disappointed. But if you like flat music, then the EKSA Air Joy Plus Headset is quite good.

For music, we tested the headsets with mobiles and laptops (both Windows and Mac) and it worked fine without any problem.

One of the standout features of the EKSA Air Joy Plus Gaming Headset is its virtual 7.1 Surround Sound. This produces a surround sound like effectwith just a stereo speaker setup using a special sound technique.

By default, this feature is enabled on the Air Joy Plus but you can change the sound output to just stereo mode using the EKSA 7.1 Surround Sound Driver Software. The official EKSA website has the download link for this software but it is only available for Windows operating system.

Surround Sound Driver

We installed the software on our Windows machine to make some tweaks. Apart from changing the mode from surround sound to stereo, you can also select the preset sound options for both surround and stereo.

If you want further customization, the tuning software allows you to manually adjust the equalizer to set the sound output as per your liking. You can also enable or disable the ENC (environmental noise cancellation) feature from the tuning software.

The EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset is priced at $51.99 with an introductory price of $31.99. The build quality seems decent considering the ultra-lightweight form factor. But the good thing is, EKSA is offering a 2-year warranty on the EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset. So, you can use them worry-free for all your mobile gaming needs.

Overall, we liked the EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset for what it is designed and built for. We believe this headset is targeted at people who participate in long gaming sessions and expect no pain or fatigue near the ears or the head. The ultra-lightweight design in an over-the-ear form factor, combined with soft and large earmuffs, adjustable headband, good 7.1 surround sound, and noise cancellation for voice, serves the purpose.

Speaking of surround sound, you can easily change the output mode (between 7.1 surround sound and stereo sound) with the tuning software, but only from a Windows machine. You can also customize the sound output using the equalizer in the tuning software. Additionally, the software allows you to enable or disable the environment noise cancellation option.

Sadly, bass lovers cannot enjoy music with these headsets as the output is pretty flat with very little bass. But if you are into mobile or PC gaming and want to experience lag-free audio, then the EKSA Air Joy Plus Ultra-Light Gaming Headset is a must-have for mobile gaming.
