Our general impressions of the Asus Republic of Gamers Vulcan ANC headset are very positive; the sound quality and performance are bang on the money and the innovative ANC feature is something we’ve never seen before on a gaming headset.
The one minor gripe that we have with the Vulcan ANC is the build quality and construction, which aren’t quite as good as we would expect from a £100+ headset. It certainly isn’t bad, but we would expect a little more from Asus in this price range. If you are the type of person who manages to break products, a headset from SteelSeries’ indestructible range, such as the Spectrum 5XB might be more appropriate long term.
As the Vulcan ANC has only just been released, it isn’t yet available to buy anywhere in the UK. Asus inform us that it will be available for around the $150 mark in the US so we would expect UK pricing to be around the £100 mark. At this price we feel that the headset offers reasonable value considering the exceptional sound quality and innovative ANC feature.
