ASUS has released the Republic Of Gamers Vulcan ANC, claiming it to be the world’s first active-noise-cancelling pro gaming headset.
“Created from the needs of competitive pro gamers to remain focused during competition, the ROG team forged the Vulcan ANC with both performance and comfort in mind. The Vulcan ANC features 85% active noise cancellation to filter out sounds like low frequency computer fan noise and 30dB passive noise cancellation to reduce a wide range of ambient noises, including background voices,” said ASUS.
The Vulcan ANC features a lightweight design of 320g, which ASUS claims is lighter than other comparable models of the same size, with other headsets weighing around 350g. For comfort, the headset uses memory foam encased in breathable Japanese protein leather. It is also portable, with a foldable design and a durable touring case.
The Vulcan ANC is built with enlarged 40mm headphone drivers for crisp, clear audio. “ASUS audio experts optimized the headset for a wide sound stage so audio is balanced with both thundering bass and brilliant mids and highs,” said ASUS. A blade-shaped detachable boom microphone has built-in noise filtering technology so teammates hear clear conversations during games instead of ambient noise.
