Command your way to victory with exclusive ROG Command technology.
Get the drop on opponents with improved audio positioning and bask in game music with crystal-clear 118dB SNR sound. All is done by the creators of Xonar Xense (2011 CES Innovations Award winner) and Xonar Essence One (2012 CES Innovations Award winner). The commitment of the Xonar team delivers leading-performance gaming products, merged with the excitement of a unique, stylish and gamer-focused design. ROG Xonar Phoebus, named after the Greek god of the sun and music, comes with exclusive ROG Command technology, Hyper Grounding technology, EMI-shielding and top notch components, combined with the latest Dolby surround enhancement to ensure you hear exactly what game designers want you to hear.
ROG Command Technology Boosts In-game Voice Beyond excellent sound quality, ROG Xonar Phoebus gives you clean and seamless communications for a totally immersive experience. World-exclusive ROG Command technology was specifically developed by the Xonar team to bring effective noise cancelation to a gaming soundcard set. Intelligent sound detection algorithms analyze sound detected by both the external microphone and one of the micro-mics on the control box to cancel out environmental noise. Array microphones (two on the dedicated control box) form a virtual 30?cone of precise voice capture. As a result, ROG Xonar Phoebus enables up to 50% ambient noise reduction, effectively turning loud locations such as LAN parties into something as quiet as a library.
Embrace exceptional sound quality for the win The PCM1796 digital-to-analog converter on ROG Xonar Phoebus delivers clear and crisp 118dB SNR high fidelity audio. The new soundcard therefore outperforms competing gaming audio products by a factor of four, and onboard audio by an impressive 32 times. It also excels in total harmonic distortion (THD) performance, with a miniscule 0.00039% of sound output experiencing distortion. Noise-blocking multi-layer PCB is designed with hyper grounding technology for clear sound. Stylish and efficient EMI shield blocks electromagnetic interference to help provide cleaner audio. The top-flight TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier on ROG Xonar Phoebus drives up to 600 ohm impedance for genuinely impactful headphone output. Three different gain settings cater to various headphone impedance levels, with aesthetic lighting that changes accordingly: blue for ‹64 ohms and red for the two settings over 64 ohms.
Control Box within Easy Reach Clad in the trademark ROG red and black color scheme, the ROG Xonar Phoebus control box offers gamers improved response and convenience. Connected to the card via the back I/O, the control box can be placed on the desk so it remains within easy reach. The control box further offers microphone and headphone connectors, making it possible to use even short-wired headsets with ease, as it brings the connectors closer to gamers. Gold-plated jacks ensure greater durability. To help with gaming in the dark, the control box headphone-out lights up green, while the microphone-in glows red! With volume control knob and one-click mute button on the control box, you can easily adjust volume and one-click mute quickly without bringing up game or operating system menus, or having to hunt around for display remote controls.
New Xonar Audio Center The latest Xonar audio center brings great sound combined with the spirit of ROG to provide gamers impactful and precise audio control delivered in style. It is designed with a range of effortless adjustment features: with one-click ease, gamers can access features such as I/O settings, volume, game effects, and digital siginal processor (DSP) mode selection. The spacious and intuitive interface further delivers a completely user friendly experience, and gamers can also enable Dolby Home Theater V4 with a click.
