ASUS ROG Strix Go Headset Review
The packaging for the Strix Go is the now famous Strix design with a clear product image on top of the multi-hued ROG Eye. Having reviewed the very first Strix products which went heavy on the owl imagery, I am pleased they've adopted this take upon the ROG logo as their primary brand identity.
Within the box we find the Strix Go itself as well as the detachable microphone and wind protector, as well as a Type-C to Type-A convertor. We enjoy manuals for such simple products. "Plug in, that is all".
The ear pieces are covered in a synthetic leather and are deep and well padded. It's nice to have oval ear cups instead of strange shapes merely for aesthetic reasons.
The headband is well padded and has plenty of height adjustment if you have ears on your neck or, as is more likely, you need to wear them whilst also wearing your beanie.
The volume wheel is one of the toggle types - hold to raise or lower rather than spin - and just below that is the all-important microphone mute button to ensure that your requests for your enemies to die faster, or your team mates to become competent, aren't broadcast to the world.
The microphone is certified by both Teamspeak and Discord and comes with AI noise reduction and a removeable filter for those of you who struggle with their plosives.
It's an indication of how quickly things change that the Go has a Type-C connector by default and the Type-A is an adaptor, rather than the other way around.
For easy portability the Strix Go live up to their name by folding down into a compact package to take up less room in your backpack.
