ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC Headset Review
As befits a ROG branded product the packaging is of a very high quality. It would be tempting to plaster the box with a lot of logos and shouting of the ANC technology, but ASUS have kept things restrained with a clear and concise design. Even the rear of the packaging, usually a haven for tiny fonts and complicated specifications, is bold and simple whilst still imparting a lot of information.
Within the box is the carry case for the Vulcan ANC. A very hard case guaranteed to protect it in backpacks and on the floor of LAN conventions. It's perfectly designed for the headset too, with it being a very snug fit. Given that we've seen headsets priced much higher that haven't come with a carry case it's a nice touch.
The headset itself folds neatly for storage, with the height-adjustment hinges providing the pivot points. The microphone isn't the flexible type that we often see, but rigid. It is however removable which is a boon for those times when you aren't talking. Also by removing your ability to adjust it you can be certain that there wont be any people putting it right against their mouth for a wall of unintelligible noise.
The cable is removable too and is the same as the one we saw on the Echelon. Very high quality although it's only rubber-coated rather than the fabric braid that we're more used to seeing, especially at this end of the market. The inline remote is crackle free and clips on to ensure it's always within reach.
