ASUS continues to expand its range of personal audio offerings for PC gamers, unveiling the Echelon Camo Edition headset. Featuring an attractive design inspired by digital camouflage patterns popular in games and real-world military apparel, the headset uses 50mm neodymium magnet drivers to ensure powerful and precise in-game audio. Extra-comfortable 100mm ear cups isolate up to 30dB noise, and the entire sound range comes across in better reproduction, from powerful bass to crisp highs. Rigorous testing has created a headband with optimized clamping force to eliminate stress and discomfort, while added touches such as a retractable microphone and braided cable provide the convenience and flexibility gamers require. Designed to blend in with the best gaming
As the name suggests, Echelon Camo Edition evokes the excitement of first person shooters, one of the most popular PC gaming genres. Many of the leading titles in the segment allow players to customize camouflage and textures applied to weapons and outfits, and Echelon Camo Edition pays tribute to this aspect. When worn by gamers, the headset extends the focus on camouflage designs with its game-inspired look. The digital camouflage pattern is a familiar element in almost every shooter, while the stylish metallic side plates feature an aggressive claw totem, showing that Echelon Camo Edition users are hard to beat in-game.
Superior sound performance and comfort
Going beyond stylized looks, the 268g Echelon Camo Edition headset delivers powerful audio with 50mm neodymium magnet drivers. These support better sound positioning within games, so users gain increased awareness of environments, opponent actions and locations. Deep bass lends unmistakable impact to everything from soundtracks to explosions, while the wider range benefits from crystal-clear delivery and extremely low distortion, helped by gold-plated connectors.
ASUS sound engineering means the frequency response curve has been optimized for gaming output, reinforcing the reproduction of footstep and gunshot sounds to augment spatial awareness, response accuracy, and win rates. At the same time, material research and extensive testing assure total comfort even during the longest gaming sessions. Full-coverage ear cups measure 100mm and use high quality leather treatment to eliminate ear fatigue and block up to 30dB of external noise. The fine-tuned headband employs optimized clamping force, lab tested on a variety of head types. Echelon Camo Edition offers a great fit and prevents stress to further improve enduring comfort. Extra features crafted especially for gamers
Accommodating the needs of PC gaming enthusiasts, ASUS has given Echelon Camo Edition a retractable noise-filtering microphone for enhanced voice quality. To minimize cable entanglements and sound quality degradation over time, the headset uses a tough braided 2.5m cable, the perfect length for most gamers as established by obtaining community feedback. In-line controls within easy reach allow customers to adjust volume levels without taking their eyes off the screen in the heat of the action.
