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.
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
Summary: Well think about it this way, you’re getting most of the goodies you can get from the Vulcan Pro, losing out by having audio quality that’s rich but just not as rich as the Vulcan Pro by paying only 2/3 the price!
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.
