Audio Performance


The Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON is capable of impeccable audio reproduction across a wide range of bit rates. Furthermore, there’s a very rich dynamic range and the dual amp solution really accentuates the audio quality of premium headphones. These results are certainly some of the best I’ve encountered although there is some minor room for improvement in THD + Noise.
