The ASUS name is synonymous with motherboards, laptops, and desktop computers, but what most folks forget is that they also manufacture high quality network and computer accessories. Last year we reviewed one of their computer audio products, the Cine5 5-channel PC speaker, and we were very impressed. In this review we will look at one of their newest audio products - the NC1 noise-canceling headphones, which are shown in the promotional image below.
