    Asus ROG Echelon

    Hello all!

    I recently bought the Asus ROG Echelon gaming headset. Really love it, it's cool as well!

    Now thing is, I'm a bit dissapointed at the bass level it offers. Sound clarity is great, very crisp, but the bass is holding back and does not give such a great feel to it when playing games like battlefield 3. The weak sound one gets from firing the weapons is very odd. Perhaps I bought a bad model or is it supossed to be like this?

    I had the tactical 3D Alpha from Creative and with them was this USB adapter(built in audio driver) so I plugged them with the
    USB.
    Is it possible that there is a "conflict" between the two perhaps?

    Like I said, that's not an ASUS ROG Product...hence why I made the comment.

    Hmmm, then why is it being advertised on some places as one? Still It's an Orion with a camo skin only, the difference between them is minimal according to some sites.
    You have any experiance with the sound quality from the Orion? I really want to know how come the Bass is so poor on these.

    Im not comparing them to the Orion pro version ofc as they have 7.1 virtual dolby.
