To avoid giving everyone false expectations - the new firmware will not be ready for another couple of months. I will keep you guys updated. Apologize for the delay.


Still nothing. Waiting since February now, and it get continuosly postponed. This is becoming a joke.

Yep, apparently ROG now stands for Republic of Greed. The got our $$ for a premium product and we get told to STFU buy our next Premium product if the POS doesn't work and we won't support it... and like what we give er DON'T give you.

Tried turning Noise Gate down or off?
Already received a headset replacement or RMA?

Have turned noise gate down and off. Have not received RMA, it is one with a H9 “revised mic”. It wouldn’t bother me if it wasn’t people constantly saying “what did you say” or “huh”.

To be sure, does the serial number on your box start with H9? I can't replicate this issue, is anyone else on the same boat?

If you have tried all the settings, perhaps the best thing to do now is RMA and see if the issue is hardware.

Check to see if there is only one of the three 'holes' where the mic should be on the boom open. Mine, had only the one hole open, I manually opened the other two myself and now the mic is perfect. I'm not recommending you do this as I have the tools, but if two of the holes are blocked that is probably your issue.

Have not tried to RMA yet. Yes, mic only has one hole. I can probably do it my question is when punching other two holes how to I prevent debris from going into the mic itself? I feel as if that happened opening the holes did nothing.

You don't 'punch' them. I have probably a thousand different exacto knives plus other model building tools, a micro-min repair station....You basically, with a lighted magnifier, carefully carve out the centers to the same diameter as the existing hole. It is actually hollow underneath them so you do not have to go that deep. I used a solder sucker to remove any debris as I worked. Took about a half hour. If you're not confident in your abilities, I wouldn't do it. However since mine is a H7 serial I figure the odds of getting something with a worse issue was 50/50. 😛

We strongly advise against drilling holes in the mic boom, the mic is very sensitive and the design is as such for good reason. Please try moving the adjustable mic to an optimal position for best results. If you are adamant about drilling extra holes, best to RMA first so our local team can check it before you void the warranty.

The new firmware went through a few revisions, and is now in the testing phase. No ETA will be given at this time.
Downmix for stereo speakers will be implemented, but stereo effects will not be available through all channels in the headset. All drivers resonating in sync can cause excess vibrations and undesirable sounds. In the new firmware, this is one of the bigger challenges when altering the LFE channel to output the low frequencies from multiple drivers. While it's fine for some games, bass can be overbearing for others. While heavy bass might be okay in a home theater with good acoustics, headsets have confined space to work with. Imagine placing 10 subwoofers in your living room, sure I'd like to try it to see what happens, but it's not something I'd listen to regularly.
