ASUS Announces the Strix 7.1 True Surround Gaming Headset

/ 2 years ago


ASUS is expanding their Strix Gamers series with the Strix 7.1 Gaming Headset. It is a true 7.1 surround headset as it has a total of 10 neodymium magnet drivers (5 per ear). The USB headset comes with an audio station for easy management of your audio profiles and pretty much everything a gamer could want from a headset.

The ASUS Strix has foldable ear cups that are cushioned with ultra-soft, full-size memory foam; 130mm across at its widest point and covered with protein leather. For easy transport or storage, the microphone is detachable.


The audio station features a headphone amplifier, 90% environmental noise cancellation for voice capture, and four game-audio spectrum profiles that enable gamers to tailor their audio experience to the type of game being played. With dedicated volume controls for each surround channel you can tune the balance just right for your taste and current played game. A switch to stereo is also possible at a push of a button. It has four pre-programmed profiles for FPS Gunfire, FPS Footsteps, Action RPG and Racing.

    Well I gotta admit Asus is adventurous but I don’t wanna see the price tag and Guy Fawkes lighting on earphones has always been too over the top for my taste. That said I’ve also never been a fan of multiple speakers (or even virtual 5/7.1 sound) in one earcup to simulate surround sound, it’s too restrictive they don’t tend to sound as good as advertised but lets give them the benefit of the doubt here until they’re released and tested.

    Would of been cool if they released the standard stereo headset with the lighting effects.
