UNBEATABLE TRUE 7.1 SURROUND SOUND

ROG Centurion sets itself apart from other 7.1 gaming headsets with its five discrete neodymium magnets in each ear cup that deliver true 7.1-channel surround sound with incredible fidelity. In order to achieve optimal sound quality, ROG designers spent an excess of time and effort fine-tuning the position of each driver and the precision of the headphone’s chamber mechanics to achieve optimal sound quality and accurate positioning unmatched by any other true 7.1 gaming headset. Every gunshot and footstep comes through with pinpoint accuracy and stunning clarity, bringing the battlefield to life. With its exceptional engineering, ROG Centurion delivers punchy and immersive audio for an unparalleled gaming experience.

 

HI-FI GRADE HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER – FOR TRUE-TO-LIFE GAMING AUDIO

ROG engineers applied their extensive experience of designing world-class sound cards to ROG Centurion with the goal of providing extraordinarily clear and stunning audio performance to gamers. ROG Centurion comes with an external control box that works exactly like a sound card and features a hi-fi-grade ESS amplifier — the world’s highest performance headphone amplifier — to improve audio performance even further for brilliant, balanced sound when gaming and listening to music.

 

FULL AND POWERFUL AUDIO CONTROL

ROG Centurion comes with ASUS Sonic Studio, a full-featured and easy-to-use sound utility that provides gamers complete control over a wide range of audio features, such as equalization (EQ) and 7.1 surround speaker level-balancing. Unlike typical audio utilities with multi-screen interfaces that make configuration complicated and time-consuming, Sonic Studio has an intuitive all-in-one view that puts all the necessary audio controls on a single screen to make adjustments fast and easy.

Sonic Studio also includes controls for Sonic Radar Pro, a unique feature that precisely maps in-game sounds — such as footsteps and gunshots — and displays them on an on-screen overlay, so gamers can pinpoint their enemies for a competitive advantage in first-person shooters.

 

ULTIMATE COMFORT – LARGE INTERCHANGEABLE EAR CUSHIONS AND OPTIMAL CLAMPING FORCE

Comfort is a key component of a great gaming headset, but what is considered comfortable varies from person to person. To fit each gamer’s unique preference, ROG Centurion comes with both ultra-soft, full-size memory foam and highly-breathable protein leather ear cushions. Both sets of cushions provide great comfort for prolonged gaming sessions with no ear fatigue.

Additionally, the headband employs an optimized clamping force based on lab testing using a wide range of head types to further improve wearing comfort.

 

CONVENIENT IN-GAME AUDIO ADJUSTMENTS – PLUG-AND-PLAY USB AUDIO STATION

Hold total control in your hand with the ROG Centurion USB plug-and-play audio station, a USB sound card that also provides effective environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, brilliant game-audio spectrum profiles, and a headphone amplifier. Its dedicated, switch-operated speaker output jack even lets you easily switch audio output from headset to speakers without unplugging your headset.
