Gaming Headset Final Thoughts
When purchasing this headset, you have two main factors to consider. Comfort and price. I wouldn’t purchase this for the sound quality alone. But at it’s price point, it’s a strong buy, and a good choice for those who might place comfort over performance. If you want to take them a step further, download the extra software from GAMDIAS and play around with some of the various surround presets.
EROS ELITE EQ Conclusion
Attached to the USB cord is a small control panel that lets you select between Surround / FPS / Bass modes. Unfortunately, after strenuous testing I was hard pressed to hear any difference between each mode. Sound was flat and didn’t have any real directional effects.
I’m used to being seen running around wearing large ear covering headphones, but wearing the EROS definitely attracted a lot of attention, most likely due to the large GAMDIAS logos lit by yellow LEDs on each side. Or perhaps it was because the glossy black plastic was covered in so many fingerprints it turned grey. Regardless, I think this is the first time I’ve honestly struggled to appreciate the appearance of a product I’ve reviewed. Its clunky, much to big, and not all that attractive.
Made from predominantly hard and soft plastics with some leather, this headset has a lot of wiggle room for various head sizes. While I didn’t feel that any of the parts were particularly fragile, I question how long it will last under constant wear and tear.
Functionally, the EROS ELITE has everything you need for a basic gaming headset. It’s not the best in the market, but at this price point, it doesn’t have to be. The GAMDIAS EROS ELITE EQ is available online for $69.99 (Amazon | Newegg), you get ample bang for your buck. 7.1 simulated surround sound, detachable microphone, and an immensely comfortable design make this a recommended buy for those looking for a gaming headset on a budget.
