Press Release

ASUS today announced ROG Carnyx, a professional-grade cardioid USB microphone that features a 25 mm condenser capsule and a 24 bit / 192 kHz sampling rate to deliver natural and rich sound. It offers uninterrupted, clear recordings thanks to a high-pass filter that reduces low-frequency noise, a built-in pop filter that prevents plosives, and a metal shock mount that minimizes external vibrations. A one-touch mute button and multi-functional control knob provide intuitive control over mic settings for more convenient recording and streaming sessions.

Natural and rich sound
Compared to standard microphones, the ROG Carnyx features a larger 25 mm condenser capsule that improves low-frequency performance and delivers rich, natural, warm vocal tones. The microphone’s high 24-bit / 192 kHz sampling rate ensures high-fidelity sound reproduction that reflects every nuance of the user’s voice. The cardioid polar pattern of the Carnyx emphasizes sounds from the front, and minimizes sound pickup from the sides and rear, making this microphone ideal for solo streamers, gamers, and podcasters.

Clean, uninterrupted recordings
The studio-grade high-pass filter cuts out unwanted low-frequency background noises below 80 Hz, such as rumble or hum. This prevents the user’s voice from sounding muddy, helping it stand out. Additionally, a built-in pop filter employing foam and mesh layers helps prevent plosives when the mic is used up-close. The Carnyx also features a premium, sturdy, all-metal shock mount that includes elastic suspension cables that isolate the mic from external vibrations like keystrokes or mouse clicks that can travel through the table.

Intuitive control
The ROG Carnyx features a one-touch mute button that works silently. There's also a multi-functional control knob that can be used to adjust microphone and multimedia volume or to turn the high-pass filter on or off. The Carnyx also offers real-time monitoring via a 3.5 mm headset jack, with volume adjustment enabled via the multi-functional control knob.

Unmatched personalization and flexibility
The ROG Carnyx features ASUS Aura Sync RGB lighting, which offers six preset lighting effects within the Armoury Crate app. Users can also synchronize effects with other Aura Sync-enabled products, to give streaming or gaming setups a unified look.

Plus, Armoury Crate offers additional customization options, allowing users to activate the high-pass filter, customize EQ profiles, tweak RGB lighting, or adjust other settings.
The Carnyx includes a bundled USB cable to connect to laptops or PCs, allowing users to start streaming right out of the box. Its built-in mount adapter fits standard 3/8-inch threads for compatibility with most mic stands or boom arms.

Pricing and Availability
The ROG Carnyx USB Gaming Microphone is now available on the ASUS Store on Amazon US and Amazon UK for $179.99 and £169.99, respectively.
