This review is from: ASUS Cerberus Gaming Headset for PC and Mobile
Pros: Awesome BASS, the best Sounding headset I have ever had [ including corsair, Logitech, Plantronics and TB ]. Well constructed. Nice clear mic [ after figuring out how to get the boom mic to work . see other thoughts ]. Braided cables. in-line controls in the perfect location. [ about 4in'' below the left ear can.] Light weight for a gaming headset.
Cons: Little to no adjustment. I'm 6'2 and my head is avg size for a man of my stature, and this headset will not adjust to fit me comfortably. The ear cans will not drop down far enough to cover / be centered over my ears. Which causes my ears to really hurt after 30 mins of use, did I mention they squeeze into the sides of your ears pretty hard which is what causes the pain and burning leading into numbness of the old ear flaps after about an hour of wearing time. moving on
The boom mic was a pain to figure out but works/sounds great after you plug it in correctly. on the boom mic plug is a small flat spot it MUST be lined up with the L ear cans boom mic ports flat spot which is very hard to see. The boom mic WILL plug in without lining these flat spots up however it will not activate and your inline mic will be still active. the inline mic makes you sound like you are talking inside an astronauts helmet however it works and is a nice backup in case boom mic quits etc....
the 2 err 3 piece cabling the main headsets connector will cause crackling if not plugged in tightly to your included adapter cord of choice dual mic/headset splitter pc cord or smart phone adapter included. [ I have to give mine a little extra push and twist on occasion through out the day ]
Other Thoughts: ASUS Research and Development Pay attention get out the note pad.
1. This headset needs more adjustment for larger heads the cans do not adjust low enough..
2. They have way too much pressure squeezing into the users ears.
3. Ditch the pleather ear cup pads and use micro fiber.
4. the connections between the cables need to have a tighter fit in order to eliminate the crackling if lightly pulled
5. Make the boom mic plug and receptical to only allow it to plug in one way OR make it clear that the flat spots on the plug and the receptical port have to line up to activate the boom mic.
They sound AMAZING and are built sturdy. if you can correct these issues you will have the best gaming headset on the market. I wear a headset 8 to 12hrs a day and even though they hurt to wear they sound so awesome I cant bring myself to return them.
Pros: 6 sata 6gbs connectors 4 ram slots, H97 chipset USB 2.0 AND 3.0 headers on this board and HDMI.. Perfect board for a killer HTPC which is what I bought this for.
Cons: BIOS needs updating when you get it, HDMI was periodically not putting signal out to the monitor until I updated the BIOS now all is well.
Other Thoughts: Had never used Asrock boards however I like it so much I just bought a 2nd one for another HTPC !READ FULL REVIEW
