ASUS Strix 7.1 Overview
Experience true 7.1-channel surround sound with the ASUS STRIX 7.1 USB Gaming Headset. Engineered with 10 discrete neodymium magnet drivers, full-size hexagonal ear cushions, and stylish static and breathing lighting effects. It is accompanied by a driver-free USB audio station that features a variety of audio controls and sound effects. STRIX 7.1 provides an immersive gaming experience.
True 7.1 Surround Sound
Each earcup houses five discrete neodymium magnets to enable true 7.1-channel surround sound (or eight-channel surround sound). Together with the optimized position of each driver and precise chamber mechanics, STRIX 7.1 delivers realistic surround sound for an immersive gaming experience.
Stereo Sound Supported
When listening to music or enjoying other 2-channel content such as YouTube videos, switch to stereo mode for an optimal audio experience. This fine-tuned stereo mode uses multiple discrete speaker drivers to deliver realistic sound.
Plug-and-Play USB Audio Station
Control the STRIX 7.1 with the included plug-and-play USB audio station, which works as a USB sound card. Its dedicated, switch-operated speaker output jack lets you switch audio output from headset to speakers without unplugging your headset.
Static & Breathing Lighting Effects
Express your gaming style with STRIX 7.1 and its owl eyes that even light up in the dark. Choose between static or breathing lighting with a simple click of a button on the audio station.
Dedicated Volume Controls
Different games may use various recording methods, so the balance of each channel might be affected and need to be adjusted. STRIX 7.1 provides dedicated volume controls for each surround channel, so gamers can fine-tune the balance without hassles.
Audio Profile Settings
With the audio profile settings, you can enable performance for a variety of genres, including first-person shooter (FPS), racing and role-playing games (RPGs). Choose the suitable game-audio profile to boost critical audio details instantly. Aggressive wheel-drift effects put you right in the middle of the race track and enhanced footsteps and gunfire sounds mean you'll pinpoint enemies more quickly and with precision.
Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC)
The USB audio station features a built-in microphone that actively detects and counters more than 90% of environmental noise, such as mechanical keyboard tapping and speech, so your allies aren't distracted in chat by noises occurring around you.
Full-Size Protein Leather Cushions
STRIX 7.1 is cushioned with soft, full-size memory foam (130mm across at the widest point) and breathable protein leather, which provides comfort over prolonged sessions with little to no ear fatigue. Additionally, the headband employs an optimized clamping force based on lab testing using a wide range of head types to further improve wearing comfort.
The foldable design allows earcups to lay flat, which is ideal for packing and bringing to a LAN party or tournament. The detachable microphone boom also provides added portability for travel and storage.
