ASUS STRIX FUSION 500 GAMING HEADSET REVIEW (4K60)

by birtanpublished on September 12, 2020

a sous have been on a bit of a roll lately with the awesome ROG Claymore keyboard and GLaDOS to gaming mouse the last generation of headsets from a soos I personally wasn't

Much of a fan of the fusion 500 gaming headsets on the other hand looks fantastic and it feels very well made and assured since they're priced 179 US dollars and 157 UK pounds opening up the box I was expecting a little bit more in

Size although a suits were nice enough to include an extra pair of fabric ear cups although I do prefer the level ones already installed on the headsets apart from that and USB cable there's not much else inside the box for the price

Unfortunately this headset is wires I always use a wireless headset because it can't stand a cable dangling from my heads although wireless headsets normally do sound a lot worse than a wired counterparts so I'm expecting some

Great audio quality out of these especially since inside is a set of 50 millimeter drivers that has an independence of 32 ohms delivering an overall maximum frequency response of 20,000 Hertz plugging them in for the

First time the RGB lighting becomes apparent situated on the rear of each ear curve overall the effect looks clean and in keeping with the headsets design even if it's completely pointless the closed-back headset also has glossy

Plastic on the outside of the ear cups in a gun metal color my fingerprints were everywhere as soon as they put these on so I highly doubt these would ever make a good murder weapon on one side it has touch controls and I found

Them also a little unresponsive to adjust your audio levels you have to swipe up or down on the left ear curve each swipe only adjusts the volume by a little bit each time not the best solution because you're just running

Your finger up and down and it's just taken about an hour for me to turn the volume right off although I do appreciate issues trying something different with the fusion 500 apart from the touch controls there's

Only one of the button on the headset and that's used to activate the virtual 7.1 surround sound moving on to the build quality in my been test the Strix 500 stood up to a significant amount of pressure and I'm glad to say they will

Withstand the test of time cosmetically however the glossy plastic will most certainly chip a fade and scratch easily I'd expect this headset to look worn out in a short amount of time if they're not handled with care the metal hinges are

Strong and robust as well as the metal inserts that allow for a good range of adjustments the headset will fit every head size no trouble at all underneath the plastic headbands is an extremely soft foam wearing these for many hours

On ends the headset felt extremely comfortable the headset delivers just enough clamping force from the ear cups distributing the headset fairly light 360 grams around my heads well I've tested to fusion 500 for many weeks now

The sound they deliver is pretty decent and it seems gaming companies are really trying to improve audio quality on their headsets probably due to the being so much competition although it's subjective I really liked the bass

Performance delivering a deep kick I've not heard from a gaming headset in a while that said you need some extremely bassy music to get any life out of these one massive issue with a fusion 500 is a lack of software it's not possible to

Change any EQ settings whatsoever which is extremely disappointing from a headset costing of this much the headset is screaming out for more developments on the software side in fact the only software available to download as far as

I'm aware is to control the RGB lighting the microphone it flips out from the left ear cut and I love the fact it can be hidden out of sight when it's not in use the quality well I'll let you decide for yourselves this is a microphone test

Of the Strix fusion 500 gaming headset when I was gaming with this headset and discord people did say I sounded a lot worse compared to my normal everyday gaming headset I use overall though I think the sound quality is just about

Good enough to chat with people online rounding off now guys and girls the Strix fusion 500 headset is fairly decent but the cost is extremely high I like what they try to do with the touch controls but I feel they would be more

Suited for use with a mobile phone which I find interesting since the headset has no headphone jack I love the RGB lighting build quality and overall design that just needs a little bit more developments on the

Software side still great headset no doubts and there you go guys my review of the Strix Fusion 500 gaming headset my name's mark from silenced tech goodbye
