Immersive Sound. Crystal-Clear Chat

The ROG Fusion II 500 gaming headset retains the iconic ear cup design of the ROG Strix Fusion series and pumps it up with virtual 7.1 surround sound, a high-res ESS 9280 Quad DAC™ and 50 mm ASUS Essence drivers to deliver immersive true-to-life audio with thumping bass. AI Beamforming Microphones with AI Noise Cancelation and Game Chat volume control provide impeccable in-game communication during the heat of battle.

High-Resolution ESS 9280 Quad DAC

The Fusion II 500 kicks things up a notch with the ESS 9280 Quad DAC, which provides lossless audio processing. Each DAC devotes its processing power to a subset of the audible frequency range across lows, mids, highs to ultra-highs resulting in crisp and clear sound.

High SNR for Positional Audio

The ROG Fusion II 500 is designed for RPG and FPS games. It achieves an unprecedented 130 dB SNR ― a spec unattainable by single DAC headsets. Plus, its exclusive 50 mm ASUS Essence drivers and airtight chambers provide deep and powerful bass so you can precisely pinpoint the origin of gunfire or explosions on the battlefield and experience ultimate gaming immersion.

  • ESS Quad DAC: Detailed spatial sound SNR 130db
  • Regular DAC: Normal in game audio SNR 100db

Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound

Advanced virtual 7.1 surround sound optimizes audio in any game for realistic positional audio. The Fusion II 500 also includes exclusive ROG Hyper-Grounding technology for pure, realistic sound. Get ready to hear everything as if you were right in the middle of it ― all with just a push of a button. No dongle or software required!
