ASUS ROG Delta S Review

Introduction

The ASUS ROG Delta S is an incredible USB Type-C headset that comes with an AI-noise cancelling microphone and QUAD DAC technology that delivers incredibly crisp sound. And the headset looks stunning with its triangular earcups that have an RGB triangle and an ASUS ROG logo to go with it. Let’s take a closer look at this great gaming headset.

Design

The Delta S design is carried over from the first Delta headset and that is a good thing. The triangular earcups look rather unique and the headband has “Republic of Gamers” written on it, which is a very nice touch. And while you can’t really see the RGB on the earcups while playing, it certainly is a nice complement to the stream.

Most parts of the headset are made of nice-feeling plastic, but the frame is reinforced with metal for better durability. This makes the headset weigh under 300 grams, which makes it suitable for long gaming sessions. And the soft memory foam padding on the earcups and headband certainly adds to the comfort.

Features

The ASUS ROG Delta S headset has a surprising amount of features. ASUS always does a good job with their headsets and this is no exception. The Quad DAC technology has four dedicated chips to improve performance across four ranges.

There is also support for MQA files, which makes the headset an amazing choice for listening to high-resolution music. ASUS also has some of the best software available. The Armoury Crate program allows you to customize pretty much everything you could wish for on the headset. You can play with the EQ as much as you like until you get the perfect sound or use one of the gaming presets.

Sound Quality

The sound quality out of the box is already pretty good, but you can certainly play with the EQ a bit to get even better sound. Bass could use more punch and the vocals can be too overwhelming.

And the microphone features AI noise-cancelling, which makes your voice sound clear and crisp. It is even Discord and TeamSpeak certified, so your teammates will be able to hear you perfectly. The AI significantly reduces all background noise.

Conclusion

The Delta S headset comes with a ton of features and a unique design. The headset is very light, durable, and comfortable and the sound quality is outstanding thanks to the Quad DAC.
