ASUS has released the ROG Vulcan ANC, the world's first active-noise-cancelling pro gaming headset designed to immerse users into games and keep them free of distractions like never before. Created from the needs of competitive pro gamers to remain focused during competition, the ROG team forged the Vulcan ANC with both performance and comfort in mind. The Vulcan ANC features 85% active noise cancellation to filter out sounds like low frequency computer fan noise and 30dB passive noise cancellation to reduce a wide range of ambient noises, including background voices.

The Vulcan ANC not only provides gamers an immersive gaming experience with noise cancelling features, but also a comfortable one. The lightweight design of 320g is lighter than other comparable models of the same size, with other headsets weighing around 350g. Soft memory foam encased in breathable Japanese protein leather ensures user comfort even after extended gaming sessions. It is also portable, with a foldable design that easily fits into a durable touring case to take between competitions or LAN parties.



Crystal clear audio with 40mm drivers and noise-filtering microphone
The Vulcan ANC is built with enlarged 40mm headphone drivers for crisp, clear audio. ASUS audio experts optimized the headset for a wide sound stage so audio is balanced with both thundering bass and brilliant mids and highs. A stylish blade-shaped detachable boom microphone has built-in noise filtering technology so teammates hear clear conversations during games instead of ambient noise.

The ROG series to me is top end ASUS gear, unfortunately these headphones dont look the part as the plastics in the photo look a bit crappy. Also 40mm drivers are pretty small and I wouldnt expect much bass response out of them.

these to me look like they are made by creative and then rebranded as ROG - not impressed.

Indeed they look like those special edition WoW headphones creative makes that are cheap junk, they look as though they wouldn't survive one LAN trip let alone a year of them.

If I look hard enough, the ROG symbol kinda looks like a Vulcan's ear. Is that what this is about?

They look kind of neat, but what I want is something super durable for a gaming headset. My creative fatal1ty MK II's broke with ease. I need a headset that doesn't just fall apart from picking them up...
