ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 Review

If you are serious about gaming you know how important it is to find the right headset.

Your headset not only connects you to your teammates and lets you talk trash to your competitors, but it also helps you pick up on audio cues you would have missed out on with traditional speakers, too.

The wrong headset can cripple your ability to compete on the digital battlefield whereas the right headset – like the ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4, for example – help you dominate right out of the gate.

Design

Straightaway, it’s important to highlight just how smartly designed the ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 really is.

One of the most portable and compact looking gaming headsets money can buy right now, it’s not hard to see why so many gamers love everything that this ASUS headset brings to the table.

Lightweight, minimalist looking, and made out of high quality components throughout, the design of this headset is top-tier.

Audio Quality

Audio quality on the ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 is top-tier as well.

You get virtual 7.1 surround sound, great mid-level sound quality as well as resounding bass, and some of the best locational we’ve seen in a compact gaming headset set up.

Whether you’re just looking for a way to play your favourite single-player games while soaking up all the ambient sound of the world around or need to rely on your gaming headset to pick up footsteps in competitive FPS games online, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 has you covered.

Connectivity

You’ve got a couple of different connectivity options when you choose to use the ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 as your number one gaming headset.

For starters, you can connect over 2.4 GHz wireless connections via a USB Type C connection dongle.

This means you can plug right into your PC or laptop but it also means that you can connect directly to your PlayStation, your Xbox, and your Nintendo Switch as well.

Of course, you can also connect over wired USB if you want to cut down on overall latency or need to recharge your ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 as well.

Comfort

Every good gaming headset is super comfortable, allowing you to enjoy hours and hours of marathon play sessions without feeling like your head is getting squeezed or your ears are being peeled off of your skull.

The ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 delivers in this department, too.

Lightweight and comfortable enough to sit on your head or at least three or four hours before it becomes even just a little bit noticeable, this headset is definitely designed with marathons in mind.

Battery Life

The battery life on this gaming headset is pretty solid, with it averaging about 21 hours of runtime on a full 100% charge.

Charging the headset back up to 100% from completely dead takes a little bit of time, though.

Expect to have to connect your headset to a power source for about three hours to get all the way up to four charge – though it can give you three hours of runtime on a single 15-minute quick charge whenever you need it to as well.

Final Verdict

All in all, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the folks at ASUS created something special as part of their Republic of Gamers product lineup.

The ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 is a top-tier gaming headset that you won’t want to sleep on.
