Last Updated:


Ever been in a situation where all of your pals are playing a hot new game and you can’t join in on voice chat? We’ve all been there, but with the online gaming industry set to be worth $79bn by 2025, it’s time to sort it out.

Good gaming headsets can cost a lot of money but they don’t have to. EKSA is a budget-conscious brand that has just brought out its brand-new Air Joy Plus, an ultra-light gaming headset. EKSA has created the Air Joy Plus with all of the features that you would expect from a gaming headset – without the customary high price tag.

What makes a good gaming headset?

A good gaming headset needs to hit in three main areas. The first is comfort – headsets have to be comfortable for long periods of use in high-intensity gaming situations. If your headset isn’t comfortable it’s going to have a serious knock-on effect on your gaming. The second is sound quality, as you need to be aware of your surroundings and have the ability to identify noises with certainty. The third is communication because without reliable comms you can’t hope to be competitive in the world of online gaming. If any of these three are not up to snuff, your headset is not fit for purpose. Overarching all of these, though, is value for money.


This is where EKSA truly steps up to the mark. While some companies charge upwards of $300 for gaming headsets, EKSA keeps it reasonable, especially in the case of the Air Joy Plus which retails for only $52. When it comes to headsets, or any gaming peripheral for that matter, the law of diminishing returns rears its ugly head. Sure, the quality increases as you spend more, but only to a certain point. After this, the value proposition gets less and less worthwhile.

This is a particularly noticeable phenomenon in the gaming industry as it’s full of companies attempting to charge huge markups on products that cost relatively little to design, develop, manufacture, and market. If you’re on a budget it can seem like a waste of time. However, EKSA aims to deliver quality kit at a very reasonable price – under the $100 mark, and often much cheaper. You can actually pick up the Air Joy Plus for $35.99 at the moment and that’s a very decent price for a headset with the following features.


The Air Joy Plus is constructed in a streamlined, weight-optimized way, which results in very little waste and an absolutely featherweight headset that totals a tiny 7.19oz/204g. With lightness, comes ease of use and ergonomics. A good gaming headset needs to be suitable for long periods of use, and the Air Joy Plus weighs so little you might forget you’ve got it on. That’s exactly what you want from your headset.
