I bought these headphones 11.1 2018
Sound microphone in games is below each average and people can not recognize me. I tried various settings in the Sonic Studio program, but the result was always the same. Will there be any next upgrade that will solve this problem? I ask for help with what to do. I contacted asus support in my region, but they did not reply to anything after 5 days.


Have you checked your serial number on the box to see if you need a replacement?

They are working for solutions on having the Subwoofer enabled for stereo mode i believe. The Newer replaced headsets have a new mic so the mic issues have been resolves just check tour serial number and for the general sound there is a post on this forum which tells you how to boost sound by editing the profile. IF you want more control, download PEACEUI equalizer for equalizerapo, allows you to edit frequencies and DB for each channel aswell as upmix your stereo channel to use all drivers.
The headset sounds amazing once you have that subwoofer working, trust me.

Please note that when checking to see if you need a replacement, look at the serial number on the side of the box.

The first character indicates the year it was manufactured: G=2016, H=2017...

The second one indicates the month, 1=Jan, 2=Feb.... A=Oct, B=Nov, C=Dec.

e.g. GA means it was manufactured in October, 2016, and therefore it needs to be replaced.

All stock manufactured before August, 2017 (H8) needs to be replaced. Only the headset, nothing else needs to be sent back.

That's great, H9 is the revised version. We have a beta firmware available for download, if interested join the discussion and provide some feedback:

I thought I'd share my positive experience too.

I bought my original set from overclockers UK and they were H3. Initial they were great (minus the mic) however after a few months, both side channels and the rear left channel stopped working.

I was a bit upset due to all the years of owning ASUS products with no issue. However I spoke to MasterC and he advised me to contact Overclockers.

They tested and within 2 weeks I had my shiny new H9 replacement. The headset just is amazing with the new firmware, I hear everything and so many suckers die in PUBG due to me hearing them.


Just want to credit both ASUS and OverclockersUK for the fast turnover. It's resparked my drive for gaming,


Thanks :cool:
