Looks-wise, the Vulcan is simple and maybe even unremarkable, with subtle ROG insignia

To be honest, we'd pay the extra over and above our previous favourite headset, the Razer Carcharias, even if the Vulcan didn't have ANC - it's even more comfortable, sounds even better, comes with a half decent carry case and to answer Mentai's question, it's audio cable is removable too.

It's got a pair of 3.5mm jacks, just not clear from the pictures as some clever person plugged the end that goes into the PC into the headset... :p
