Asus Travelite HS-1000W


Not content enough with producing top notch motherboards and sound cards, as well as creating a completely new product in the form of the infamous Eee netbooks, Asus tries their hand at producing a headset. This being Asus, there has to be something...

Also included in the package is a small hard case that can store the headset and its’ accessories, allowing for easy transport without the risk of damage, handy for LAN parties.

ASUS Travelite HS-1000W Wireless Headset


Alongside its range of Xonar sound cards, ASUS takes a shot at the headset market with the wireless HS-1000W and James checks them out today.

In closure, I will re-iterate that for serious music listeners, wireless technology (at least in my testing experience) is not a good solution, with the inherent fuzz enough to scare off any audiophile and the lack of bass depth and wholeness also...

Best Headset ever


Wireless - can go outside the house and still works (about 15-20 feet)House in bricks ; Great sound, not too hot ; last at least 3-4 hours on battery

Got to be careful, can lose a screw on each earplug. Really small piece so hard to find if drop on the floor

Consumer review by:

So disappointing


Pretty good sound quality ; Good wireless range

Short charge cable ; Battery life is not as advertised ; Battery randomly shorts out when it has just been charged ; Sometimes develops high pitched buzzing for no reason (i moved the dongle to another device and it persisted) that won't clear for...

Cheap, in a bad way


After navigating the disaster that is ASUS support and returning it per their instructions, it was returned as unrepairable, but under warranty. Unacceptable. Will not buy from again.

Works sometimes, doesn't require a driver in XP or Win7

Super short charging cord. Wireless range is substandard and very affected by any type of interference. Had to RMA two sets, first one, the USB transmitter died, second one the swivel (a known design flaw) broke

Consumer review by:



I've used this headset for over 2 years now (got it in sept/oct 2009.) I think it's great! It's got excellent crisp sound quality and the battery last at least 6-8 hours on a single charge ; Regarding the length of the charging cable: I have really...

None really ; There was one incident (just once), when during charging the mic recorded crackling noises. Unplugging the charging cord stopped the noise. I wouldn't really consider it a con since it only happened once

Wireless Happiness


A longer charging chord would be nice, I am usually on my computer for a few hours and being isolated to a foot and a half leash really sucks. Other than that it was a worthy buy, just be careful about the USB jack.

I was warned against buying this headset mostly due to the fact that it was wireless. But to be honest, they are great, and it was a great deal. Easily my favorite headset by far. The mic was crisp and clear and the feedback was nice, does well with...

The fit is a bit tight if you wear these for a few hours, easily managed if you just alternate uncovering one ear or the other, a headset is a headset; its going to be on your ears ; After a few months the casing for the USB jack became loose. Either...

Great headphones until they broke.


Asus won't replace nor repair them after they broke. Not happy with Asus customer support.

The range was excellent, great quality sound and the battery lasted long enough

Tight around the head, not comfortable after an extended session. Hinge on the ear broke while putting them on

Consumer review by:

Battery does not last


I have bought and sold ASUS products for over 15 years and the last few have seen a decline in quality and service to the point that I cannot sell or use their products anymore.

The comfort, sound quality and ease of use on this headset are all quite good

I am on my second set and they are dead. Battery lasts about 6 months on this one, the first set about 6 weeks. When battery fails it cannot be used even plugged in to USB port. I only used them on Skype a few times a week and I can't find...
