  • I'm massively biased as I'm an ASUS fanboy... but this microphone looks like something out of the Transformer films! It sounds nice, clear & crisp! Loads of features to make even the most nerdy sound tech guy fall in love. But for noobs like me, it's the perfect mic too!

  • The ROG Magnus provides an amazingly clear sound quality and is an easy plug-and-use USB microphone. For how lightweight it is, I did not expect it to perform so well. It's a definite improvement on my previous microphone. It's easy to use the few buttons to do a Mic Mute, Cardioid pattern and change the headset volume and mic gain. Love it, and so do my viewers!

Studio-Grade Recording Quality

With three 14mm studio-grade condenser capsules, ROG Strix Magnus captures every vocal nuance to clearly convey your emotion and attitude to your audience. ROG Strix Magnus gives your recordings a new level of professionalism, and your audience will enjoy warmer, richer, and more lifelike sound for better listening experiences.

Automatic Noise Cancellation

ROG Strix Magnus features environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, letting you achieve studio-grade recordings without the need for expensive and bulky sound-absorption materials. A dedicated microphone inside ROG Strix Magnus actively listens for environmental noise and sends it to the three condenser capsules for analysis. The result is that distracting noises — such as keyboard keystrokes, mouse clicks, and fan whir — are eliminated instantly for exceptional recording quality.
