Asus has launched new gaming headsets in the Indian market, dubbed as Rog Orion Pro and Orion with large 100mm over-ear cushions, the Rog Spitfire USB audio processor, and enhanced sound technologies.
As mentioned in the company press release, the new gaming headset range has been designed to provide gaming enthusiasts with the finest audio immersion and positioning needed in any game and at any location. Price wise Orion Pro will cost buyers Rs 5,200, while Orion will hold a price tag of Rs 4,250, all excluding taxes.
Further, Rog Orion Pro and Orion use a retractable microphone boom for easier angle adjustment and neat storage when not in use. New microphone noise filtering technology boasts more sensitive voice capture capabilities for clearer in-game communications, and Orion PRO further includes an easy to use cable organizer for convenient wire management and unsightly entanglement prevention.
The Rog Spitfire comes with three in-game audio modes: FPS EQ for better audio positioning in first person shooters, 7.1 virtual surround, and headphone amplifier. Each has a dedicated one-click on/off button, with no need to enter a software interface. FPS EQ has been developed by analyzing the audio characteristics of several leading first person shooters, with advanced sound algorithms built into the hardware to improve equalization and bring out details with better clarity.
Gamers can hear opponent movements, gunfire, call-outs, and other auditory cues with better directional precision, contributing to successful play. The 7.1 virtual surround mode presents lifelike and distortion-free in-game surround.
Its design optimizes effects originally not programmed specifically for games, resulting in more natural and balanced enveloping in-game audio.
ROG Spitfire"s integrated headphone amplifier features ROG engineering that boosts in-game sound detail, and has been tailor-made to match the tonal performance of ROG gaming headsets, as opposed to off-the-shelf headphone amplifiers.
