A few hours after the launch of the top RoG Phone 6 telephone range, the Taiwanese brand Asus has completed the details relating to the Cetra True Wireless Pro hybrid gaming headsets, worthy heirs of the Cetra True Wireless models appreciated last March.
The new Cetra True Wireless Pro earphones enjoy waterproofness against sweat and splashes of water as per the IPX4 standard and on the outside of the arms they support touch controls: hybrid type, they can also be used wired, thanks to adapters with Type cable -C, on which the on-line commands of the remote control are placed, complementary to those mentioned above. Used in this way, the Asus Cetra True Wireless Pro eliminate the problem of autonomy, but also that of latency and, in addition, provide a digital analog converter, or a DAC with 4 ESS 9280 modules, which supports sampling at 32bit @ 384kHz.
Used in the usual Bluetooth mode, the Asus Cetra True Wireless Pro earphones offer support for SBC, AAC and aptX (also adaptive) codecs and enjoy Snapdragon Sound technology: in addition, in tandem with the Asus RoG Phone 6 it is also possible to use the gaming mode, which reduces latency to 45 ms (thus doing better than rivals Redmi Buds 4 Pro).
The interior houses 10mm drivers: the manufacturer has also promised active noise cancellation, known as ANC, and an ambient transparency mode to stay aware of what’s going on around. Obviously, given the product’s target, the in-game communications with its team could not be neglected: in this case, Asus has set up a microphone which, thanks to artificial intelligence, benefits from a reduction in ambient noise capable of removing almost all (95%) of a wide range of background noises.
Last but not least, autonomy. The Asus Cetra True Wireless Pro earphones ensure 4.30 hours of autonomy if the ANC is used, which go up to 7 hours without it. The carrying case, which can be loaded in Wireless Qi but also via microUSB Type-C, brings the overall autonomy, in the same conditions, to 13 and 21 hours respectively. Pending the debut on international markets in October, the Asus Cetra Truw Wireless Pro earphones can be purchased in the Malaysian market, where they are priced at 515 ringgit, equal to approximately 114 euros.
