It's time to get your team on the offensive with powerful and precise battleground audio intelligence - thanks to advanced Xonar sound hardware. No more confusion or uncertainty. Clear audio turns you into a virtual online gaming general, and paves the way to victory. Superior audio detection and positioning make gamers equipped with ROG audio gear true champions.

Developed using real life insight from full-time players and refined by the expertise of the Xonar team, the ultimate goal here is to help you win! Built for the most dedicated gamers, ROG is committed to win-boosting features, from clear communications to precision detection that amplifies every footstep taken by opponents.

Precise positioning and lifelike immersion
Get the drop on opponents with improved audio positioning and bask in game music with crystal-clear 118dB SNR sound. All done by the creators of Xonar Xense and Xonar Essence One. The commitment of the Xonar team delivers leading-performance gaming products, merged with the excitement of a unique, stylish and gamer-focused design. ROG Xonar Phoebus, named after the Greek god of the sun and music, comes with exclusive ROG Command technology, Hyper Grounding technology, EMI-shielding and top notch components, combined with the Dolby surround enhancement to ensure you hear exactly what game designers want you to hear.

ROG command technology boosts in-game voice
Beyond excellent sound quality, ROG Xonar Phoebus gives you clean and seamless communications for a totally immersive experience. ROG Command technology was specifically developed by the Xonar team to bring effective noise cancelation to a gaming soundcard set. Intelligent sound detection algorithms and array microphones (two on the dedicated control box) enable up to 50% ambient noise reduction, effectively turning loud locations such as LAN parties into something as quiet as a library.

Headphone amplifier
Since many gamers choose to refrain from disturbing others while insisting on the best sound quality, ROG and Xonar teams integrated the top-flight TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier on ROG Xonar Phoebus, driving up to 600 ohm impedance for genuinely impactful headphone output.

Hassle-free headset connections
Clad in the trademark ROG red and black color scheme, the ROG Xonar Phoebus control box offers gamers improved response and convenience. Connected to the card via the back I/O, the control box can be placed on the desk so it remains within easy reach. The control box further offers microphone and headphone connectors, making it possible to use even short-wired headsets with ease, as it brings the connectors closer to gamers.

Instant volume tuning
Gamers can easily adjust volume and one-click mute quickly without bringing up game or operating system menus, or having to hunt around for display remote controls.

Illuminated gold-plated jacks
Gold-plated jacks ensure greater durability. To help with gaming in the dark, the control box headphone-out lights up green, while the microphone-in glows red!

Effortless adjustment with the Xonar Audio Center
The latest Xonar audio center brings great sound combined with the spirit of ROG to provide gamers impactful and precise audio control delivered in style. It is designed with a range of effortless adjustment features: with one-click ease, gamers can access features such as I/O settings, volume, game effects, and digital siginal processor (DSP) mode selection. The spacious and intuitive interface further delivers a completely user friendly experience, and gamers can also enable Dolby Home Theater V4 with a click.

GX 3.0 game audio engine
The GX 3.0 game audio engine boosts your performance with better legacy EAX compatibility and immersive surround sound enhancement.
