How It Works
The ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Mic Adapter enhances the quality of voice communication by eliminating most sounds within your surrounding. This is especially useful when one is working at home where a lot of sounds and noise can be picked up.
It allows you to talk clearly without the unnecessary interfering sounds that ordinary headphone/earphone microphones pick up during calls and videoconferencing online.
I am unable to test it with many other objects producing noise in the background, but common noises that I encounter a lot at home such as dogs barking, neighbors talking, music playing in the background, the crackling sound when sauteeing something in the kitchen.
✔︎ Lightweight and portable
✔︎ It connects automatically when using a Macbook (since it is USB Type C, I can inject it straight to one of the ports)
✔︎ Can work on high-end devices whether USB Type C or USB 2.0
✔︎ Cancels most noises around
✔︎ Has a software that you can install that will help to adjust the noise-cancellation and noise level depending on your microphone position.
❌ Does not work for old devices regardless of port type (did not work well with my old ASUS laptop with a USB 2.0 or Oppo Reno 2 phone with a Type C port). Check out the list on the ASUS website for some of the select models that are ideally compatible with the ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Mic Adapter.
❌ Did not cancel the whirring noise of an electric fan a foot away from me. I tried to record an audio with the fan on and close to me, with all other noises in the background; all other noises got canceled except that of the fan’s. I sounded like I am under the water trying to speak.
Nevertheless, this is a great buy for me as it delivers what I need for the most part. I get to record and create videos without worrying about too much noise around as it gets canceled easily. I attend video calls using my headphones connected to this adapter and never encountered any issues.
I got mine in Lazada as a bundle with my ASUS TUF Gaming headphone but you can buy this separately.
