Pros: Amazing, this headset has outrageous sound. It is very crisp and clean. The controls on this thing gives you so many sounds options and it is all plug and play. I also really enjoy the surround sound that it gives during fps games, I hear which direction people are running around at. Comfortable for hours at a time.
Cons: The cord is extremely long. To some this is a perk but it is a bit excessive in my opinion. This is a very nit picky thing, I had to think hard to find a flaw.
Summary: After going through a few different cheaper headsets, this headset has been a great buy. I would definitely recommend it to any gamer.
Pros: Great looking and great sounding. I got an instant edge in gaming due to the fact I can hear enemies much better. This headset is very comfortable and blocks out most outside noise. Makes a loud window AC unit virtually silent. Friends noticed my voice sounding much clearer than my previous mic.
Cons: Mic seems to lose position really easily when not on my head, so I must re-adjust every time I play, although it doesn't need really any adjustments while I play, so this is kind of a moot point and I won't take an egg away.
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!
Pros: it sounds amazing and it is incredibly comfortable even for multiple hours. it looks great and the retractable mic is something i thought i wouldnt need or want but is very useful. the mic sounds amazing and your voice comes trough loud and incredible clear.i noticed sound i never knew where there like echo and footsteps can be herd easily whitch is great for FPS shooters
Cons: when you use the mic your voice is played back to you trough the speaker unfortunatle it sounds awful and robot like.
Summary: These are very good for music and gaming, but the positional audio is not as good as expected (wouldn't recommend these if you're looking for a headset that has good positional audio), however, with Asus Xonar DG soundcard and 5.1 dolby enabled, positional audio is awesome! My ears never get tired of wearing these - very comfortable and soft earcups. Retractable mic is a big PLUS.
Awesome headset, may not be good for prolonged periods of gaming.

Summary: The headset is great and after 30 hours of use it sounds great and is comfortable. The remote is very useful, the aesthetics are great and the braided cord really adds a feel quality. The mic, while not the best is of good quality and the retractable functionality is definitely a plus, however at times it can feel a little flimsy. I usually use the headset for no longer than 3 hours at a time so I cannot vouch for how comfortable it is for any longer sessions.
