Gamers usually demand the best; whether it is the best components for their gaming rig to push the graphics of their game of choice to the highest possible settings. Debates have been raised and competitions have been battled over which one can be push the fastest frames per second on screen.
This is all well and good. On the other hand, man (and thus gamers) are not wholly visual people. We also use our sense of hearing when we game. Sound is every bit as important in the whole gaming experience as the graphics. It adds to the sense of tension when faced with numerous opponents in Team Fortress 2 or Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Audio also provides cues of impending Infected rush in Left 4 Dead, or just listening to important information conversing in Mass Effect or Dragon Age.
A good set of speakers helps in enhancing the gaming experience but there are times where a good set of speakers are not enough especially when gaming late at night and you don’t want to disturb those sleeping or in a noisy environment such as a cafe or in a gaming competition where concentration and audio detail are big factors in winning the game.
Asus has taken note of this and thus released their ROG (Republic of Gamers) headset, the Vulcan ANC Pro. This headset is also the first active noise-cancelling headset that is designed for the pro gamer in mind. Not only does it cancel up to 85% of the external noise, the Vulcan ANC Pro is fitted with 40mm drivers that provide crisp and clear sound. Asus also designed the headset to be extremely comfortable even after long hours of gaming.
Priced at PhP5,990, the Asus Vulcan ANC Pro will be available locally in the first week of September.
Conquer the Competition with the World’s First Active-noise-cancelling Gaming Headset
ASUS Releases the ROG Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming Headset
ASUS has released the ROG (Republic of Gamers) 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.
Long lasting comfort with lightweight, ergonomic design
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.
ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC will be available in the Philippines first week of September with SRP P5,990. For inquiries drop by the nearest Asus Concept Store or visit facebook.com/asusph and ph.asus.com.
