Product Information

True 7.1 gaming headset with 10 discrete neodymium-magnet drivers and a plug-and-play USB audio station

SHARPEN YOUR HEARING

Strix 7.1 is a superior true 7.1 surround gaming headset engineered with 10 powerful discrete neodymium-magnet drivers, full-size hexagonal ear cushions (130mm across at the widest point) and stylish static and breathing lighting effects. It is accompanied by a driver-free USB audio station that features loads of audio controls and sound effects. Strix 7.1 provides an unrivaled audio experience with punchy and immersive sound. Every gunshot and footstep is reproduced with accurate positioning and stunning clarity, bringing the battlefield to life.

GAME IMMERSED

True 7.1 surround sound via discrete neodymium magnets

Each ear cup of Strix 7.1 houses five discrete neodymium magnets to enable true 7.1-channel surround sound (or eight-channel surround sound). Together with the optimized position of each driver and precise chamber mechanics, Strix 7.1 delivers realistic surround sound that makes every gamer feel the excitement of being right in the center of the game.

Perfect for music listening

When listening to music or enjoying other 2-channel content such as YouTube videos, switch to stereo mode for an optimal audio experience. This fine-tuned stereo mode uses multiple discrete speaker drivers to deliver sound that is more lifelike and immersive than any dedicated stereo headset on the market.

Regardless of whether your favorite game features 7.1, 5.1, or stereo audio, Strix 7.1 will reproduce it in the most optimal, natural way. With just a click of the 7.1/stereo mode toggle switch on the audio station, you can easily change between surround and stereo audio.

GAME BY INTUITION

Plug-and-play USB audio station

Hold total control in your hand with the Strix 7.1 USB plug-and-play audio station, which works as a USB sound card and includes effective environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, brilliant game-audio spectrum profiles and a headphone amplifier. Its dedicated, switch-operated speaker output jack lets you easily switch audio output from headset to speakers without unplugging your headset. Only the strongest survive, so your gaming gear must become an extension of your very being – Strix 7.1 gets everything done for perfect in-game audio immediately.

Static and breathing lighting effects

Express your gaming style with Strix 7.1 and its owl eyes that even light up in the dark. Choose between static or breathing lighting with a simple click of a button on the audio station.

Dedicated volume controls for each channel and microphone

Different games may use various recording methods, so the balance of each channel might be affected and need to be adjusted. Strix 7.1 provides dedicated volume controls for each surround channel, so gamers can fine-tune the balance without hassles.

Four game-audio spectrum profiles

With the profile settings, you can enable the best aural performance for a variety of genres, including first-person shooter (FPS), racing and action/role-playing games (RPGs). Choose the suitable game-audio profile to boost critical audio details instantly. Aggressive wheel-drift effects put you right in the middle of the race track, and enhanced footsteps and gunfire sounds mean you'll pinpoint enemies more quickly and with exceptional precision!

Filters out more than 90% of environmental noise

Strix 7.1 USB audio station features a built-in microphone that actively detects and counters more than 90%1 of environmental noise , such as mechanical keyboard tapping and speech, so your allies aren't distracted in chat by noises occurring around you.

1 Connect via USB to activate the Environmental noise cancellation (ENC) feature. The ENC performance result is tested and verified in ASUS lab, and actual performance may vary depending on distance from noise source, room size, placement and other factors.

GAME IN COMFORT

Large protein leather ear cushions and optimal clamping force

Strix 7.1 is cushioned with ultra-soft, full-size memory foam (130mm across at the widest point) and highly breathable protein leather, generating greater comfort over prolonged sessions with no ear fatigue. Additionally, the headband employs an optimized clamping force based on lab testing using a wide range of head types to further improve wearing comfort.

GAME EVERYWHERE

Travel-friendly foldable design

The foldable design allows ear cups to lay flat, ideal for packing and bringing to a LAN party or tournament. The detachable microphone boom is perfect for easy removal, travel and storage.

UNLEASH YOUR GAMING INSTINCTS

Travel-friendly foldable design

Taken from the ancient Roman and Greek word for owl, Strix means the keenest hearing and sharpest eyesight. Strix means feeling your environment so that you detect and react to the slightest movement. Strix means survival on the very edge of instinct. Strix is in your blood, as it is in ours.
