PowerA FUSION Wired Gaming Headset with Mic - Headphones with On-Ear Controls for PC, Xbox, PS4, and Mobile Devices - Black
About this deal
However, there is one spanner in the works, which admittedly isn’t the fault of the headset itself but is something that afflicts all gaming headsets that claim to be platform-agnostic. Sure, there’s the odd drawback to be mindful of that I’ll touch up on in a moment, but with that to the side, or even with that in mind I daresay, the FUSION is top notch for its cost bracket. Featuring large 50mm drivers that deliver stereo sound, deep bass and crisp highs, via noise-isolating ear cups for the ultimate sound experience.
The most important aspect of any pair of headphones is the sound quality, and the FUSION Gaming Headset is built to satisfy your senses. I’ve always preferred these cords opposed to the ‘ pinch‘ and tear prone standard rubber/plastic cords. The Fusion Wireless is predominantly a mix of black and grey, which, considering the great swaths of flat, untextured plastic on show, could be considered both uninspiring and toy-like at the same time.
Like I said, I’ve tested FUSION across a wide range of medias, and despite the small drawback regarding warm up, I can only state my satisfaction. Asus even throws in a second set of ‘hybrid’ ear cups that feature a mix of both leatherette and mesh in their design. Recent years have seen a trend towards gaming headsets becoming more minimalistic in their design, and the Asus ROG Fusion II 500 epitomises that.
I have a very large head, but it is no problem to set the headphones so they also fit my head shape. The sleek, flexible boom microphone provides mic monitoring for clearer communication and on-ear mute so you can be heard when you want to. Plus, the distinct separation means you can still use the Fusion Wireless in competitive gaming conditions.
The combination of large 50mm drivers with a frequency response of 20Hz-40kHz mean that the soundscape is broad and every element has room to breathe.
