ASUS Strix Mouse, Headset & Keyboard Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

ASUS Strix Peripherals

Introduction

Strix is the Latin term for Owl, which explains much about the piece of digital craftsmanship which forms the image at the top of the page. 

It's also the latest range of products from ASUS. Not replacing the ROG brand, just giving ASUS another string to their bow and a chance perhaps to break away from the red and black colour scheme which is now such a part of PC Hardware folklore that we don't know of a manufacturer who hasn't embraced it.

Regular OC3D readers will be familiar with the Strix brand from the competition we ran which closed at midnight. But it isn't limited to just graphics cards. The Strix brand stretches across a range of peripherals too, all of which we'll be reviewing today.

So if you're in the market for some new peripherals but want them all to perfectly match, perhaps this is the answer to your prayers.

Technical Specifications

As we have four products to get through the specifications will be on the relevant page for each item. But we're going to start with the piece that expresses the Strix Owl in the strongest manner, the Strix Pro headset. Easily the thing you notice the most is the whopping 60mm drivers. Way bigger than most, even though they only support the standard headset range of 20Hz-20kHz.

Agree with Kyiagi. The headset is the only one I like. I had high hopes for the mouse, but nope. Yuck. Looks like it was made by HP.Quote

This design is nice. Is the owl, or at least the wings going to be incorperated into the parts, for instance the owl painted on the mouse, or on the ear piece of the headphones? I know, kinda a dumb question but the design would be awesome if incorperated that way.Quote
