A lot of games are accompanied by a great soundtrack, and lets face it, today’s competitive scene requires that you’ll be able to perceive where your opponents are coming from, based on the sound of their movements. That’s why it’s important to have a good headset that lets you appreciate the beauty of the music, while at the same time, giving you all the details needed to know where that shot came from. The ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 500 is a headset that promises to do just that.

Using it…
