ASUS ROG Centurion review: True Surround
ASUS has revamped their lineup of peripherals in the first quarter of 2017. We’ve already taken a look at their input peripherals in the form of the ASUS ROG Gladius II and ROG Claymore. But let’s not forget that they also create peripherals for gaming audio. Much like other gaming headsets in the market, ASUS has also been pushing 7.1 surround sound to their headsets. Their latest gaming headset, the ROG Centurion, separates itself from the competition by having discrete drivers to deliver true 7.1 surround instead of having simulated 7.1 surround. ASUS is by no means the first brand to equip their headset with several drivers in each cup. Cooler Master also equipped their CM Storm Sirus S 5.1 with multiple drivers to deliver true surround sound. Let’s dive in and see how the ASUS ROG Centurion performs in the field.
