Recall the “Cone of Silence” from the Get Smart series? Well the new Xonar Phoebus gaming sound card’s dedicated control box helps project an area of clarity with its dual noise cancelling microphone arrays that can reduce ambient noise by up to 50%. Dubbed ROG Command Technology, it aims to boost in-game voice clarity. ASUS claims that this technology works even if your headset has noise cancelling technology built-in. This is because the dedicated control box helps suppress ambient noise in the vicinity when ROG Command is enabled and works along with the headset’s own microphone to analyze audio captured.
The ROG Commend function on the Xonar Phoebus is just one of the highlight features of this new card among high sound quality (118dV SNR clarity), built-in headphone amplifier, external control box for volume tuning, new audio utility center, Dolby Home Theater V4 support and more.
