IMPORTANT! The ROG Centurion 7.1 Control Box is a plug-and-play audio device. Depending on how your computer is configured, the 7.1 Control Box may or may not automatically be selected as the default audio device. Hence, ensure that you select the 7.1 Control Box as your default audio playback/recording device if there is no sound.



ROG Centurion is a premium true 7.1 surround-sound gaming headset with 10 discrete drivers for sensational audio and precise positioning, and a noise-cancelling digital microphone for crystal-clear in-game voice communication. The headset features a Hi-Fi-grade ESS headphone amplifier to deliver realistic and impactful audio that makes games come alive. The included plug-and-play USB audio station gives you instant, full control of your audio experience for superior sound and an undeniable edge in the battlefield.


ROG Centurion sets itself apart from other 7.1 gaming headsets with its five discrete neodymium magnets in each ear cup that deliver true 7.1-channel surround sound with incredible fidelity. In order to achieve optimal sound quality, ROG designers spent an excess of time and effort fine-tuning the position of each driver and the precision of the headphone’s chamber mechanics to achieve optimal sound quality and accurate positioning unmatched by any other true 7.1 gaming headset. Every gunshot and footstep comes through with pinpoint accuracy and stunning clarity, bringing the battlefield to life. With its exceptional engineering, ROG Centurion delivers punchy and immersive audio for an unparalleled gaming experience.


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.


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.



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.

Hear for yourself!

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.
