Conclusion: The ASUS Orion Pro looks the part of a high-end gaming headset. The high-gloss black and matte black surfaces, along with the addition of red accents, were smartly utilized by the designers and resulted in a stylish look. The ROG logo on the outside of the ear cups was placed on a reflective surface, which looks sharp. The braided cord and the protein leather really add to the quality appearance.
Pros: FPS mode maximizes sound positioning, Retractable microphone, 7.1 Virtual surround provides excellent game and multimedia audio, No additional software/drivers required, 30dB passive noise cancellation, Very light headset, Extremely comfortable, ROG Spitfire audio processor, 2.5m braided cord
Cons: Ear cups do not swivel laterally, No software/drivers for customization
Gaming headset review: Asus Orion Pro vs. Thrustmaster Y250-C
27 February 2013
Excerpt: 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 tested both the Thrustmaster and the Asus Orion headsets.
Conclusion: All in all I was very pleased with the Asus Orion Pro. It is the only headset that I have ever had that has come close to the comfort level of the Razer Carcharias, and it may even be more comfortable (this is yet to be decided). The sound quality with the Spitfire is simply amazing. Without it there is something to be desired, but when it is plugged in and some of the options are being used it is simply untouchable in my eyes.
Conclusion: Having completely despised the Vulcan ANC headset from ASUS, I honestly expected – and was ready to – hate this headset as well. However, I was completely blown away by the ROG Orion Pro headset. It was beyond my expectations in sound, depth, and overall performance/ease of use. I wanted to hate them after the Vulcan ANC headset had disappointed me so much, but I just couldn't. The sound quality and depth of songs just left me in awe with the Orion Pro headset.
Pros: Price (I don't think I've ever said this)., Quality sound – full range with multiple applications., Retractable mic, great for travel and non-gaming purposes.
Cons: Sweaty ears? Pleather ear caps can take their toll after hours of game play
Conclusion: 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 wasn’t just a onetime deal and there’s a new long-term player in the wearable audio market. Just as importantly, it may be part of the elite Republic of Gamers brand but the highly affordable Orion takes aim at pretty much everyone from the average PC enthusiast to hardcore gamers.
Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × Today we are going to look at the latest gaming headset from Asus, the Orion Pro. Like the models we’ve seen previously, this falls under the ‘Republic of Gamers’ brand. As a result, we have high expectations for the headset as it must reflect the performance and style that we have experienced with previous models.
Summary: Det har i sandhed været en kæmpe oplevelse at få lov at teste ASUS Orion Pro. Der har været smil på læben hele vejen igennem, og når trådene så skal samles her i konklusionen, kan det egentlig gøres meget let ved at sige, at det er et helt fantastisk headset. Til gaming er det helt eminent. Surround i spil fungerer lige efter bogen og giver en helt ny dimension til spillet. Lyden generelt i spil er også rigtig god. Der er ikke en frekvens, der er alt for dominerende.
Pros: God pris, Fantastisk lyd og komfort, Velfungerende surround til gaming, Fedt og råt design, En "no-nonsense"-følelse. Rå ydelse frem for bling-bling
Conclusion: Los Orion Pro de Asus son un auriculares excelentes para jugar. Tienen un diseño cómodo y no necesitan ninguna configuración para utilizarlos. Además, el RoG USB Spitfire nos permite tener algunas opciones de sonido muy fácilmente, aunque la simplicidad de la configuración prima ante la posibilidad de disfrutar de otras características o modos de ecualización. Podremos encontrar estos cascos por entre 80€ y 100€ en tiendas online como Amazon o Acuista.
Conclusion: Som helhed synes jeg det er et rigtigt godt headset, som fortjener at komme ud til alle gamerne, som virkelig har brug for et headset som yder rigtig godt i spil og har et fedt design, som passer ind i deres fede ROG serie. Kvaliteten virker også til at være i orden, og det har en super lang ledning på hele 2.5 meter.
