ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 300 Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 300
We’ve seen many great headsets from ASUS over the years, but more often than not, they’ve been quite extreme in terms of aesthetics. Especially their huge owl-eye designed they used on the STRIX DSP. However, it looks like ASUS has matured a little, as their latest headset is one of their sleekest designed to date. We had a chance to try one out a few months ago at an event, but today, I get to try one out where it really matters; sitting at my gaming PC!
Equipped with powerful 50mm drivers, the new headset promises to deliver powerful audio for movies, music, gaming, and anything else you throw at it. Thanks to its plug and play virtual 7.1 surround sound, it should deliver all the surround sound thrills you desire while enjoying your favourite media too, without the need for any desktop software.
Hybrid ear cushions are nothing new to a headset, but it’s a feature I’m happy to see. You get two sets in the box, one leather, one soft fabric. That means it’s up to you to decide between tighter noise suppression or long-term comfort. I’ll be using the leather ones, as I prefer the acoustics they tend to offer.

What’s in the Box
In the box, you’ll find the headset (obviously), all the usual documentation, the cables and the ear pads.
Both cables come with a durable hard-wearing braiding, as well as gold-plated connectors. You can use either cable depending on which device you’re using.
The leather ear cushions come pre-installed, but there are some hybrid fabric ones in the box, which has an inner layer of leather.
