Extensive Sound Modification
The average joe can also enjoy the benefits of the Sonic Studio software, even though it may seem intimidating with all advanced features that are available. ASUS has provided default options and profiles to choose from, and users can simply edit their preferences from there to get started.
But only for PC
Even though the headset works with all the other devices on the other platforms via a standard 3.5mm audio connections, the audio output from these platform may not be as complete as those which is connected to the PC.
We truly felt the usefulness of such a gaming headset in games, especially in FPS games. With the Strix headset and the software functions, the surround simulation actually allowed us to know where the enemy was coming from. With such a technology, we were able to pinpoint and determine with accuracy the target of advancements, giving us an added edge in our game.
Sadly, the Sonic Stage software will only be available when the headphones are connected wirelessly. Users will be not be able to use the advanced audio profile software if a standard 3.5mm cable was used for the connection instead.
