Orion for Consoles Gaming Headset
For all round gamers; whether PC, Mac, Xbox 360 or PS3 games consoles, you can now buy a single headset for all applications. ROG audio team has applied its skills and created the new Spitfire II audio console which pairs with the Orion headset. Together they deliver 90% effective noise cancellation, while the headphone amplifier boosts the audio range.
The system is entirely plug-n-play so no drivers are required, and while powered by USB (available on both consoles) the cabling totals a generous 4 meters so you’ll never go short. The included 2.5mm plug specifically enables Xbox gamers to use the microphone for voice comms as well.
Clarity, control and continuous comfort
ROG Orion for Consoles features speakers driven by powerful 50mm neodymium magnets, which provide both punchy bass and crystal-clear sound detail. With noise-isolating 100mm ear cups surrounded by luxurious ultra-soft leather cushioning and a low 268g weight, Orion for Consoles is comfortable to wear for even the longest gaming sessions. Extensive lab testing by ROG has resulted in a headband with finely balanced clamping forces, meaning the Orion headset stays firmly and comfortably in place.
With the flick of a wrist, the retractable microphone gives gamers the freedom to issue commands or chat, while an inline control makes quick work of adjusting the volume or muting the mic.
Environmental noise cancellation and amplification
Orion for Consoles comes with ROG Spitfire II, a dedicated audio console with ENC and a headphone amplifier that’s tailor-made for the Orion headset. Powered by USB, this small box of tricks includes a built-in microphone that actively detects and counters environmental sounds such as speech and keyboard tapping, so teammates aren’t distracted in chat by noises that might be occurring around gamer – the Spitfire II’s ENC technology eliminates more than 90% of environmental noise.
Spitfire II also includes a headphone amplifier to deeper immerse gamers and provide a clearer sense of what’s happening on the battlefield.
Wide compatibility and made for gaming
ROG Orion for Consoles includes everything gamers require to get going, so the fun starts right away. The supplied RCA-splitter and USB cables enable instant connection to the most games consoles and computers, while the included 2.5mm jack cable allows Xbox gamers to connect their controllers to the Spitfire II for chat via the headset mic. No set up or drivers are required — just plug and play.
High-quality materials and thoughtful design choices ensure that Orion for Consoles is fit for the most demanding gamers. The headset’s braided cable is ruggedized for great durability, while its generous 2.5m length is further extended by Spitfire II’s own 1.5m cable, offering gamers very wide freedom of movement.
