Summary: First off I only purchased the Asus Orion headset, not the PRO version. The PRO version has a usb adapter that acts as an equalizer and supplies additional power to the headset. I bought this for use with an xbox 360 via an astro mixamp. It works perfect as I expected. You can however hear your own voice in the headset when you talk, and if you turn the dial to voice your own voice gets louder. You get used to it and it's not intrusive but it's definitely odd.
Summary: This is one of the best gaming headset that i've seen. It provides deep bass in-game as well as for music. The 7.1 virtual surround is awesome and sounds are more life-like. To conclude, the amplifier and FPS equation are also a great addition to the bundle, making the Orion Pro a great deal!
Summary: Good sounding and recording although a few problems at first as it seems with the spitfire on when recording you can sometimes hear yourself but can be fixed by going to if windows control pannel - sound - devices - spitfire ( configure or properties) then find where it says levels then sidetone and set sidetone to 0 to fix the problem. a fix or mention at least would have helped though on asus's side.
Summary: Right, for those looking for the push on deciding which to get, the Vulcan or the Orion this might help. I did my research for weeks before I went for a pair of new headsets as i made so many mistakes with my last one. I've had mine for a few months now so hope this review helps. The vulcan has Active noise cancellation. now unless you're actually going to be using it, literally all the time it isn't really worth getting.
Summary: Worked perfectly for a few weeks until the microphone broke. The little switch that mutes/unmutes your microphone broke off too, even after the microphone stopped working. I still used this for the headphones, using a separate microphone. Then the right speaker in the headphone stopped working entirely.
Summary: I would have to say that the sound quality from these pair of cans is excellent for the price, if you can pair it with a decent Headphone Amp it's as good as most expensive Headphones. Even though it doesn't have the biggest sound-stage - it being a Stereo Headset is still much more appreciated than those Surround Headsets. Comfort wise it is fairly comfy but I find that the Leather pads can become quite warm and uncomfortable, and I'm not that bad myself.
