Eksa E5 Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Features and Performance
Sound and Function
As soon as you put these on your head, whether music is playing or not, you experience an instant sound vacuum. The ANC feature is designed to help minimize how much loud noise you can hear around you, such as when you’re on an airplane or train ride,or your rowdy neighbours won’t give it a rest in the middle of the night. When you turn on this feature using the ANC button on the headphones, it’s like putting the vacuum I mentioned earlier inside another vacuum. You can really feel the silence.
It turns out that the way these headphones bend and swivel are not only helpful when it comes to storage, but also when it comes to how they sit on your head. The headphone on either side flexes in all four directions, and tilts, which allows it to angle to the shape of your head, and the soft foam cushion does the rest.
These headphones connect to your device via bluetooth. After running them at a reasonable volume, playing music for about 6 hours now, with about 2 of those hours using the ANC function, I still haven’t managed to get the battery to drop below 90%.
The cushion around the ear pieces is nice, but I wish there was more cushion along the headband. The silicone/rubber on the inside of the headband is soft to the touch but doesn’t do much to cushion your head from the weight of the headphones over long wear periods.
The sound quality on these headphones is great; you get a full, immersive sound with deep bass. They’re perfect for when you’re really trying to hear what you’re listening to. Now, these do have a microphone function on them that allows you to take calls hands free, but the quality of audio that these pick up is quite low. From the other end of the call the voice sounded distant or echoey. So while they are functional for your phone needs, the built in mic wouldn’t be my first choice for recording audio.
The range on the wireless capabilities of these headphones are quite impressive; I got at least 40 feet away from my phone and behind a concrete wall before they started cutting out.
These headphones have a really stylish look and the hard shell carrying case is super convenient. If you’re looking for a pair of headphones to record audio with, these might not be the pair for you. If you’re looking for a solid pair of noise cancelling, wireless headphones that really allow you to get into the groove, then I think you’ve found what you’re looking for.
