The ASUS Cerberus is a little different from other headsets, for instance it uses 53mm drivers and two microphones, a removable boom microphone and an in-line microphone pemanently attached.  For audiophiles, the headset has a 32 Ω impedance and 20-20,000 Hz frequency response and a somewhat muddy sound; for gamers it has very heavy bass which can make explosions quiet startling.  TechPowerUp were not in love with the audio performance but found the headset to be extremely comforatable so it can be perfect for those who prefer comfort over a beautiful audio space.

"Asus Cerberus V2 is the successor to the company's bestselling headset. Now equipped with a stainless steel headband and the new "Essence drivers", it's supposed to be sturdier and better sounding. However, with its $75 price tag, it faces some stiff competition and doesn't necessarily come out as the victor."

I think for pretty much all headsets you can get better audio by using a decent sound card. I recently got a creative sound blaster zx and it has made a huge difference in audio for me.

Keep in mind that crappy headsets might sound less crappy with a good sound card, but still bad.

Try a Sennheiser Game One or a Beyerdynamic MMX300. You'll be in gaming bliss.

That was Cerebus, but anyway, upvote for snout punch.

Sometimes you have to settle for almost perfect; glad someone enjoyed it!
