After about four years, ASUS has made some folds on the ROG Fusion II 500 gaming headphones. It had a more restrained design than its second-generation predecessor and still has software-controlled RGB lighting. While the 50mm diameter drivers and the presence of virtual 7.1 sound also remained.
Although the size of the ASUS Essence speakers has not changed, we can expect some improvements in terms of sound, as the ESS 9280 Quad DAC, among others, plays a role in sound, with four separate converters for bass, midrange and treble. And ultra-high sound range.
A microphone has also been developed, and a combination of AI letters is emerging, which is now very modern in the area of the product page. It is already used for things that have nothing to do with machine learning. This time, however, the product has everything to do with it. The algorithm is said to have “listened” to over 500 million different noise, such as background conversations, mouse clicks and buttons. ASUS claims to be very effective in filtering user voices and sound effects during a call.
In addition to speaker and microphone volume controls, the device’s plastic housing also has an additional dial that you can rotate to adjust the sound of your teammates or games.
The ROG Fusion II 500 provides USB-A, USB-C and a connection port. So you can use your new device with consoles, computers and mobile devices. Besides the cables, there is an additional set of ear pads in the box, which is factory installed. Unlike those on the headphones, it was no longer covered with artificial leather but with fabric.
In every new and even improved product, some new solutions are expected as improvements in the sound itself. Asus is also trying this ROG Fusion II 500. Little things that don’t show up in everyday work can help gamers in the game a lot. That is why we think that this model of headphones is one of the better solutions that Asus has released.
