ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 500 Headset review
Posted by Damon Bailey on Monday, June 18, 2018 - 8:00am
In the PC gaming world, you really only have two ways to get information from the PC to you; your eyes and your ears. Everyone wants a good gaming monitor and a powerful GPU, but the unsung hero of feedback is audio. Those audio cues tell you if an enemy is approaching if you’ve triggered an alarm, or even sets the mood for that area of a game. If you play anything multiplayer with your friends or squad, you’ll also need a microphone. With as important as audio is to your complete experience, so many people overlook it and ASUS wants to change that. With some of the best components on the market and unique features such as squad synchronized RGB lighting, ASUS has given the lowly headset the ROG flair.
ProClockers would like to thank ASUS for sending the ROG Strix Fusion 500 Headset over to check out!
