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: These headphones absolutely sound great and are really snug to use for long gaming sessions. The fact that the headphones aren't USB is a real boon so you can use them absolutely anywhere. The USB module is great too because you can use it with other headphones should these ever wear out. Unfortunately there are some downsides. The clips on the side seem to break internally very easily so you get a rattle when you use them.
Summary: Fantastic piece of kit works as advertised and agree with all the other 5* reviews. Bought this after my Logitech G430 went faulty and was credited. I am not disappointed. Easy to set up, comfortable to wear with great sound quality as well.
I've been happy with sound quality and wire length

Summary: I've been happy with sound quality and wire length. But: 1. They're too warm. Yes, my ears sweating as in sauna as never happen with another headset. 2. Left headphone lost sound after 9 months of rare using, so they're are too fragile. It's too much of disappointing points for 60 pounds headset.
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.
