Incredible sound, by Harman Kardon
To equip ZenBook Pro 14 with unsurpassed audio performance, the ASUS Golden Ear team joined forces with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. ZenBook Pro 14 delivers the most incredible sound you've ever heard on a laptop.
Smart amplifier: more volume, less distortion
ZenBook Pro 14 uses powerful custom-designed speakers driven by smart-amplifier technology. This intelligently monitors voice coil movement to deliver 1.4x-louder volume with superb fidelity, while also minimizing distortion and preventing speaker damage. Special algorithms auto-detect the physical limits of the speaker components, allowing them to be driven at peak volumes without risk of damage. The result is low-distortion audio at volume levels that are simply not achievable using traditional amplifier technology.
A comprehensive set of high-performance I/O ports give ZenBook Pro 14 the ultimate, hassle-free connectivity for versatile flexibility whether you're in the work or on the road. On top of that, there's Bluetooth® 5.0, and integrated gigabit-class Wi-Fi to give you wired-equivalent network speeds - without the wires!
With faster-than-wired speeds of up to 1734Mbps - 12 times faster than 802.11n - the dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi in ZenBook Pro 14 lets you enjoy smooth streaming of 4K UHD online videos, with greater range and more stable network connections.
Searching for power outlets isn't a productive use of your time, so ZenBook Pro 14 uses a high-capacity battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering to give you all-day on-the-go autonomy. But when you do need to recharge, it shouldn't take forever: that's why the fast-charge technology in ZenBook Pro 14 lets you recharge to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
