ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 700 Gaming Headset : Good value, Good quality

Had these for just over a week and absolutely love them. Really nice crisp sound and a decent deep base.

10/10 arrived on time as anounced.

Needed a new set of headphones and these match the make of some other peripherals i already have. Sturdy, comfy and quality sound. Downside – touch pad controls for volume can be very temperamental / does not reach 12 meters wireless in the house.

They’re pretty comfortable, have touch sensitive controls, have cool lights on the side and the sound quality is really great. They’re slightly let down by a few annoying points, but nothing that should deter you from buying them. Overview aside, some more detail: they connect via usb (pc) to micro-usb (in the headset). I have to say, it is a bit weird having the lights on the outside of the earphones, because you obviously can’t see them yourselfthe touch controls on the outside do work – you can play / pause, turn the volume up and skip a track by tapping on the earphone. But honestly, the chances of getting it wrong, or not having it register just make it a bit redundant in my opinion. Also, it sometimes pauses or skips a track when you take the headphones off because. Yep, you guessed it – it’s touch sensitive. I do like the way that the microphone slides out of the headset itself – that’s pretty nifty. The overall build quality of the headphones is good – they feel solid, and they do encapsulate your ears well, so they’re a bit naturally noise-isolating.

Sound quality is amazing but not surround sound. And for the price should be. Voice to be adjusted on ps4 by settings on consoles.

There isn’t anything special about this headset besides it’s obvious rgb capable features. The audio that comes through the headphones is also nothing special although you can enable the 7. 1 surround sound there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference unless it’s music. It isn’t bad; it isn’t good. I would say that it is pretty ‘average’ although the price tag should more-a-less represent that. The cool feature of the microphone is that it is retractable and although that is pretty standard with most headsets around this price range it seamlessly slides into a slot that’s inside the headset which gives the headset a nice sleek look when you’re not using it. Although the price tag is a little high i think it’s worth it and it does hold up pretty well.

Love the headset using it on xbox one and pc.

5 star is good for this item,only one think is the led working only when u plug in usb.

Buy on Amazon

Sound quality and isolation is great. 1 was on by default, and the button to change 7. 1 wasn’t in the place where i hold them to take them off (accidentally deactivating it quite often).

Ii just bought it last january 25,2018 and now it was broken from the left ear side. Amazon has not responded to my inquirers on how to send them back. It still has its warranty period. Its a nice headset but just broke up.

A good solid set of wireless gaming headphones. Well packaged and easy to set up. Sound quality is very good, and microphone is clear. Comes with an additional set of ear pads and the headband isn’t too loose or too tight. Styling is low key and not over the top. Happy with my purchase and would highly recommend. Charging cable has plenty length.

Good sound, annoying noise from usb cable.

I knew this was a gaming headset when i ordered it but when i saw that you can connect to them over bluetooth on your mobile i had a brief moment of excitement. Surely if asus have gone to the effort of making them bluetooth they’d make it possible to play music wirelessly?. But no, you have to keep them plugged in using the usb cable at all times. I suppose wireless sound would require an on-board battery, and despite weighing 383 grams there’s no battery in the fusion 500. These are a big and impressive looking pair of headphones. They come nicely boxed and have a spare pair of fabric ear pads if you prefer these to the leatherette pair that are installed. The sides are big slabs of angular black mirrored plastic. They are mostly black plastic with plenty of little design touches that give them a sort of techie sci-fi vibe. A sprung metal band with an etched grey design holds the two pads comfortably on my ears. The fold out microphone is a nice feature.

Very good headphones – super clean sound – super bass – super design – super comfortable.

Great sound quality, light weight. Media controls on the side are a little sensitive when picking up headset but apart from that it’s a great headset for gaming, listening to music or voice communication as microphone has a clear pickup of voice.

I really like the look of my rog strix fusion 500 headset and have to say that the build quality is typically good. I mostly find it very comfortable to wear and prefer the protein leather pads which are fitted in the factory although it does come with an alternative set which have a fabric finish and can be a little cooler. The lighting feature on the cans is pretty good although it’s really only for the benefit of other people around you unless you’re playing in a group; to be fair it is cool when everyone has a compatible set and they’re connected. The hideaway microphone is a great feature – it’s basically out of harm’s way when you’re not using it so it doesn’t get caught or damaged and folds out to the front when you want it. An important point to note is that there only a usb connection for the fusion 500 set which means it is suitable for pc, mac, and playstation 4, but not for any mobile devices or the xbox one. It comes with a detachable 2 metre braided cable (usb 2. 0 to a micro usb connection on the headset itself) but you can replace it with a longer one if you want. It does have bluetooth for use in controlling the aura app with a mobile device, but it can’t be used for listening at all – only the cable can be used for that purpose which is a shame. I find that the listening sound quality is very good and better than many rivals, although the microphone sound quality is more average. On balance i think that the fusion 500’s are a good set so long as you don’t mind the limitation of usb wired use only.
