With its exceptional engineering, ROG Centurion delivers punchy and immersive audio for an unparalleled gaming experience.
Regardless of whether your favorite game features 7.1, 5.1, or stereo audio, ROG Centurion will reproduce it in the most optimal, natural way. With just a click of the 7.1/stereo mode toggle switch on the audio station, you can easily change between surround and stereo audio.

ROG Centurion comes with a unidirectional digital microphone, which uses an optimized sound-processing algorithm to deliver a level of pure voice quality that traditional analog microphones cannot achieve. Boasting an impressive signal-to-noise ratio, extended wideband frequency response and high sensitivity rating, the digital microphone delivers crystal-clear voice reproduction, balanced and natural-sounding vocal tones, and minimal background noise pickup.
The microphone's flexible design lets you adjust it to the perfect position, and also allows it to be folded backward and attached to the ear cup for easy transportation and storage.

1 Frequency response is a quantitative measurement of the sound range that speakers can reproduce. A wider range is better.
2 The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is a measurement that compares the level of the desired signal to the level of background noise. A higher SNR is better.
3 Sensitivity is a measurement of the power required to activate speaker drivers to achieve a set volume level. Lower sensitivity requires more power and higher sensitivity requires less power. Higher sensitivity is better.
ROG engineers applied their extensive experience of designing world-class sound cards to ROG Centurion with the goal of providing extraordinarily clear and stunning audio performance to gamers. ROG Centurion comes with an external control box that works exactly like a sound card and features a hi-fi-grade ESS amplifier — the world's highest performance headphone amplifier — to improve audio performance even further for brilliant, balanced sound when gaming and listening to music.

ROG Centurion comes with ASUS Sonic Studio, a full-featured and easy-to-use sound utility that provides gamers complete control over a wide range of audio features, such as equalization (EQ) and 7.1 surround speaker level-balancing. Unlike typical audio utilities with multi-screen interfaces that make configuration complicated and time-consuming, Sonic Studio has an intuitive all-in-one view that puts all the necessary audio controls on a single screen to make adjustments fast and easy.
Sonic Studio also includes controls for Sonic Radar Pro, a unique feature that precisely maps in-game sounds — such as footsteps and gunshots — and displays them on an on-screen overlay, so gamers can pinpoint their enemies for a competitive advantage in first-person shooters.
Comfort is a key component of a great gaming headset, but what is considered comfortable varies from person to person. To fit each gamer's unique preference, ROG Centurion comes with both ultra-soft, full-size memory foam and highly-breathable protein leather ear cushions. Both sets of cushions provide great comfort for prolonged gaming sessions with 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.
Hold total control in your hand with the ROG Centurion USB plug-and-play audio station, a USB sound card that also provides effective environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, brilliant game-audio spectrum profiles, and a headphone amplifier. Its dedicated, switch-operated speaker output jack even lets you easily switch audio output from headset to speakers without unplugging your headset.

Different games may use various recording methods, so the balance of each channel might be affected and need to be adjusted. ROG Centurion provides dedicated volume controls for each surround channel, so gamers can fine-tune the balance without hassle.
With four custom game-audio profile settings, you can enjoy the best audio performance for a variety of game genres, including first-person shooter (FPS), racing, action, 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 exceptional precision.
THE BUILT-IN MICROPHONE DETECTS AND COUNTERS ENVIRONMENT NOISES
ROG Centurion 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 friends aren't distracted in chat by noises occurring around you.
*Connect via USB to activate the Environmental noise cancellation (ENC) feature. The ENC performance result is tested and verified in ASUS lab, and actual performance may vary depending on distance from noise source, room size, placement and other factors.
