Asus RoG Orion Pro
FPS mode maximizes sound positioning.
7.1 Virtual surround provides excellent game and multimedia audio.
No additional software/drivers required.
30dB passive noise cancellation.
Very light headset.
Great stereo sound with analog mode.
Ear cups do not swivel laterally.
No software/drivers for customization.
Muffled audio with USB compared to analog mode.
Priced on the higher end without giving audio quality expected from the amplifier.

Overall it's still a solid gaming headset. Why am I comparing it with the Vulcan Pro so much? Well think about it this way, you're getting most of the goodies you can get from the Vulcan Pro, losing out by having audio quality that's rich...-

No matter what application I had opened, the ASUS Orion Pro gaming headset performed brilliantly. The 50mm neodymium magnet speaker drivers deliver the 7.1 Virtual surround that brings audio to life. The 30dB of passive noise cancellation does a...91

Asus and Thrustmaster sent us very similar gaming headsets in terms of pricing and features. Both are large and black with red highlights, and have a boom microphone. On paper the Thrustmaster Y250-C has the wider frequency response. Hardware.Info...-

This is the second ASUS headset I've used that comes with a $120 price tag and I must say, this is the better of the two. Compared to the Vulcan ANC , the Orion Pro offers much more comfort and in my opinion, better sound quality. The additional...-

Asus has long been seen as a top motherboard and graphics card manufacturer, but increasingly it's diverging out into a much broader space. We've seen it produce fantastic laptops and recently some excellent 120Hz monitors. It's also been...70

In all honesty I actually enjoyed the ASUS Orion Pro without the Spitfire USB amplifier, even in games. Sure, the AMP mode gives a nice boost to the audio, but at the cost of clarity. The Surround mode is average at best, while the FPS mode admittedly...70

The Orion headset by itself is a fantastic sounding gaming headset. When you add the extra power and effects of the Spitfire USB, you have a truly great setup. I literally got lost in games for a couple of hours at a time just enjoying the open,...-

The Orion Pro may not be Asus first foray into the headset arena but it is easily their best effort to date. With it, they have let gaming enthusiasts know the Vulcan wasnt just a onetime deal and theres a new long-term player in the...-
