The ROG Fusion II 500 is the latest headset from ASUS and it is packed with features. With support for 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound, Hi-Res Audio and AI noise cancellation, it targets the audiophiles among gamers. But with a fairly hefty price tag of £200 here in the UK, is it music to our ears or just a bit of a racket?

- Fantastic immersive audio.
- Great RGB controls including Aura Sync.
- Lots of software controls for sculpting audio.
- Mostly plastic construction.
- Poor quality audio from the beamforming microphone.
KitGuru says: The ASUS ROG Fusion II 500 offers good quality audio with Hi-Res certification. However, the mostly plastic construction and low quality microphone aren't at all what we'd expect from such a pricey headset.
