Conclusion: In the end it didn't end up being the headphones I disliked so much, it was the headphone's main feature: the active noise canceling. The uncanny, brain exploding feel when turning on the ANC switch was something that just didn't go away, nor was it something I could just "get used to." Every time it was on, I felt like either my head was in a vice or that I was going up in elevation and couldn't get my ears to pop.
Pros: Easy to store and take with you, Rather comfortable even after wearing them a long time
Cons: ANC was more a punishment than a feature, Cost is high for a headset – especially one with poor ANC, Dead battery with ANC on leads to no sound
Summary: The ASUS ROG Vulcan Pro headset is a well-equipped headset in terms of features. It does, however, seem to miss some points. For one, the ANC and its sound quality are not good enough to warrant the price. The CM Storm Sonuz will give you similar sound quality at roughly half the price. Of course, the Vulcan Pro includes a semi-effective ANC system and a USB sound card, but the USB sound card is just dead weight if you don't plan on using it.
Pros: Great build-quality, Nice padding, Feature rich, Extensive bundle, Active Noise Cancellation, Comes with a USB sound card
Cons: Active noise cancellation not as effective as expected, USB sound card not better than most integrated sound cards, Sound quality per dollar is not as good as that of non-ANC headset we have tested as of late
Summary: Playing around with the ASUS Vulcan ANC left us with a really good feel. The production of music is fine except for really low frequencies, in gaming mode you cannot find a much better heat set and even testing which is not mentions in the body of the review when well. Granted we have only tested three headsets as far as the website is concerned but have purchased and enjoyed several and the ASUS Vulcan ranks as one as the better ones.
Conclusion: I like these headphones, you can pick them up quite inexpensive compared to other headphones that have this quality. The only flaw was the crackling sound if you like to max the sound but otherwise I have not found anything else. They don’t weight barely anything so they feel awesome to have on, while the ear pads move to the shape of the head makes them even more comfortable.
Excerpt: The Echelon headset we recently reviewed was a complete joy, being way better than we'd expected and competitively priced too. For a standard ASUS headset it had great performance. So when we were asked to review the Republic of Gamers Vulcan ANC headset you can imagine that the thought of a product sufficiently high-end for ASUS to apply their much vaunted ROG branding to had us salivating.
Excerpt: It was no surprise when ASUS and the Republic of Gamers design team moved into other aspects of gaming life and a high end gaming headset is a natural place to start. Many gamers choose to use a headset and it is a market where many companies have managed to gain an established foot hold and with the Vulcan ANC, ASUS hope to stamp their mark amongst them. The simple yet elegant design bares only its roots by flying the ROG colours of black and red.
Excerpt: Over the past couple of years we have seen a mass influx of brands into the gaming peripheral market, making things more competitive than ever. The longer established brands like Razer and Logitech still win favour with many gamers but that might be about to change.
Conclusion: В результате знакомства с игровой гарнитурой ASUS RoG Vulcan ANC , однозначно можно констатировать, что это достойное детище из серии «Республика геймеров». Разработчики не поскупились на использование высококачественных материалов и обеспечение неплохой комплектации. Складная конструкция наушников, а также съемные кабель подключения и микрофон обеспечивают относительно небольшие габариты в сложенном состоянии, при этом все съемные элементы запросто размещаются внутри...
Conclusion: * качественное пассивное шумоподавление в пределах 30 дБ благодаря плотно прилегающим амбушюрам и подвижным чашкам наушников; * активная система шумоподавления ANC, приглушающая звуки извне еще примерно на 15 дБ. Заметьте, не всего на 15 дБ, а в довесок к уже имеющимся 30 дБ пассивного! Впечатляет?
