ASUS Also Intros the ROG Orion PRO and Orion Gaming Headsets

ASUS ROG Orion PRO and Orion full-size gaming headsets are designed to provide gaming enthusiasts with the finest audio immersion and positioning needed in any game and at any location. After extensive research and development and taking customer feedback into account, the ROG team concluded that user comfort is key when it comes to gaming headsets. As such, ROG Orion PRO and Orion possess 100 mm over-ear cushions for greater comfort, and bring immersive audio with large 50 mm neodymium drivers.

Gaming comfort with superb audio performance

Following a prolonged trial period aimed at finding the perfect fit, ROG designers chose large 100 mm over-ear cushions covered in highly-breathable quality leather treatment. They fit snugly on heads to generate greater user comfort over extended gaming sessions while eliminating ear fatigue. Large 50 mm neodymium drivers on both Orion PRO and Orion have been meticulously fine-tuned to provide dynamic audio positioning, while the larger ear cups afford passive noise cancellation that isolates up to 30dB of high frequency ambient sounds such as environmental noise and human voice. This high degree of noise elimination makes busy LAN parties virtually library-quiet, allowing gamers better focus.
