There’s never been a more important time to own a proper decent gaming headset. Why? I’m so glad you asked. See, now that we’re all collectively staying home more than we ever have before, it’s absolutely integral you don’t subject your poor family or housemates to the near incessant sounds of you once again getting schooled in FIFA by a 12-year-old on the other side of the world.
Nobody wants to hear that! Lucky the hot ASUS ROG Theta 7.1 USB-C Gaming Headset is on sale right now. And I’m not talking lil baby sale, I’m talking huge slash-off sale — these bad boys have dropped from $549 to a red hot $361.65. You don’t need to be a geologist to understand that’s a sick deal.

So what’s under the hood? An impressive 7.1 Surround sound setup with eight ASUS Essence drivers and virtual subwoofers — leading to one of the silkiest listening experiences for your Dumbos money can buy. You want immersive audio and powerful bass to take your gaming to the next level, look no further.
Crystal clear In-game communication is a breeze with the noise-cancelling microphone. While four ESS 9601 headphone drivers and exclusively customized ROG home-theatre-grade 7.1 DAC give this headset outstanding lossless audio.
And with a USB-C connector, these baddies are compatible with PC, Mac, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and other smart devices — so you could, if you wanted to, pretty much wear them all day. Your ears wouldn’t even mind, thanks to the ROG Hybrid Ear Cushions with eyewear-friendly design and special fast-cooling fabric providing a super smooth wearing experience.
So you can spend less time worrying about your ears, and more time working on your wing play. Speaking of, oh look, Luka_2010 is online — so hurry up and pick up a pair and show that little cocky Swede who’s boss.
Spoiler alert: you lose again.
