    Rog Centurion Headset mic is shocking

    ok so got my headset last week and only really had time to try it now. was on Teamspeak and my friends where saying it sounded aweful. i checked the settings and had a listen my self and i have to say the mic on this headset is terrible for the price of the headset. i only use it for things like skype and Teamspeak and i make my videos using a blue yeti. but the quality of the mic sound is unacceptable in todays market place.

    what do you guys think?

    If you use it only for skype or teamspeak, you defnitively choose the wrong headset, I have another brand true 7.1 headset and the mic is also ****t, this headset is for gaming, and particularly usefull on FPS, all the focus is on the speaker in this sort of headphone, mic is secondary.

    Btw how is the headset in terms of audio quality and surround (if you used it on games) ?

    Thanks for your feedback, I'll pass this over to our audio team for them to look into this issue.

    Our audio team recommended that you try disabling ENC in the software to see if it fixes this issue.

    Bad Microphone

    I have the same problem. My friends say that the microphone quality is very bad...
    And it doesnt matter if I activate or deactivate ENC at the audio station. How can i deactivate it in the software?
    I expected more from such an expensive Headset :/

    I hope you can help me here

    Where did you get the headset from? Why is asus so strange in the way they sell and market their products? Its such a shame because they're products are generally top of the line and i love them!

    I use it for gaming as i have been a gamer for many, many years. as said i have a yeti for recording my review videos and such but for gaming i use like to use the headset mic for coms as it wont pick up the fans and the keyboard like the yeti will. but for the price of the headset i would expect a far better quality mic. i have always used 7.1 sound headsets and the mic's on other brands have been far better. this is my first Asus ROG headset.
    the sound from the headset itself is great, some of the best yet and would recommend them for that alone but the mic is a serious let down.

    just sounds bad and crackles, been playing with settings for ages but cant get it right. better then it was but still below acceptable slandered for a headset of this price and what it describes the mic sound as on the site.

    tried playing about but so far hasn't improved the quality yet.

    oh and for the person asking i got my headset from Overclockers in the UK

    I think that there have to be an technical issue with the microphone. All Test-Reports I have read, said that the sound is incredible and the microphone is very good.
    Either they got other samples with better mic (I dont think so...) or many of the Centurion Headsets have an issue.

    @Bahz Do you or your team have any other idea what could be the reason of the bad microphone quality. If you have an good sample, maybe you could upload a voice sample so we can see if we have too high claims. Otherwise i will complain at my trader and request a new one.

    I use a Asus u7 soundcard make sure you set the mic gain in the software at around 89%. If I don't , I get the same problem your describing *when communicating with team mates on Teamspeak
