Asus RoG Vulcan Pro Gaming Headset Review

The styling of the Vulcan Pro reminds us a little of Asus’ range of Republic of Gamers motherboards as it features a black and red colour scheme.  The majority of the headset is finished in matte black with gloss red being reserved for the edge of the earcups.

On the back of the earcups there are brushed aluminium effect inserts which features large Republic of Gamers emblems.  These give the headset a more sophisticated appearance.

Underneath one of inserts we can install a battery which enables the Active Noise Cancelling feature of the headset.  This insert can easily be removed by pressing the button on the bottom of the earcup.

The build quality of the headset is quite good and the materials used in construction feel generally solid.  We do think that there are better built headsets on the market for similar money, though.

As we mentioned earlier in the review, the Vulcan Pro is supplied with a substantial carrying case which should do a good job of protecting the headset if you take it to LAN events such as Multiplay’s i46.  Inside the case there is plenty of room for all the bits and pieces that go along with the headset.

The headset cable is completely detachable and plugs into the left earcup using a single 3.5mm connector.  At the other end of the cable it breaks out into separate 3.5mm connectors for headphone input and microphone output.  In the middle of the cable there is a small controller which lets you adjust the volume of the headset.

These two connectors can be plugged into the sound card which plugs into your PC using a USB connector.  This sound card features three buttons.  These are to enable the FPS mode, the Surround Sound mode and the Amplifier mode.

The microphone also plugs into the left earcup of the headset and can easily be adjusted to achieve the best performance.
