Design

The cups of the Strix Go 2.4 headphones are folded with ease so that you can place the headset flat in your bag if you are traveling, and folded in another way ‘like a pretzel so that the headset can be placed in the included carrying case.

In terms of design, it has a mature design that contains soft leather present in the headband,

the ear cups are very soft, and the outer cover of the ear cups is wonderfully soft

and matte, and it protects your fingerprints.

The Asus logo is located on the right earcup and “ROG” on the left, along with the logos on the ear forks and “Republic of Gamers” engraved on the headband.

As for the game lovers, there are their own colorful designs, as they can choose the Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4 Electro Punk, which adds a pink color to the design.

The leather cover on the ear cups is very soft and comfortable, it does not have the thick and dense foam you will find in other cases, which helps keep the headphone lit and prevents it from feeling tight, but it can slip if you move hard or operate it for a while.

As for the plastic wrap that holds the expandable headband, it may undergo some normal wear due to heavy use.

Connectivity Options

You can use Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4 headphones with or without a wired connection, thanks to the USB-C dongle.

The risk of connecting the headset wirelessly is very easy, as all you have to do is connect the dongle to the USB-C port to establish a 2.4GHz connection.

This feature is really useful as it allows you to be compatible with the adapter,

as you can insert the adapter into the charging port,

but the only downside here is that you cannot charge the key and use the headset wirelessly at the same time.

Connectivity Options

Of course, USB-C is the go-to port format for upcoming devices, but the port has already been confirmed on the PS5, which means that the connectivity options for Strix Go 2.4 will improve in the future.

The other thing I didn’t like is that ROG Strix Go 2.4 headphones don’t have Bluetooth in addition to wireless 2.4GHz, but if you’re only going to use it for Switch, PC, PS4, and / or any Android phone, it won’t be a problem for you. .

But ROG Strix Go 2.4 headphones have 2.4GHz wireless technology,

and this is a great alternative to Bluetooth.

You won’t suffer from sound lag at all, as upon testing I felt free

to be able to continue listening to my playlists while roaming my apartment.

Battery Life

As for the battery life, it may reach 25 hours with the headset, and you can get 3 hours of use after 15 minutes of charging via the included USB-C cable.

But even though the average battery life was about 21 hours, the cans about 20 minutes before they ran out of power became nearly unusable.

Performance

When testing the Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4 headphones, I first tried Pubg, where I felt the surrounding music and background noise, such as the sound of explosions falling from the sky or gentle winds in different maps, and the sound of different footsteps according to the different location in it (such as snow, water, or desert) and the sounds of feet Enemies.

Leather ear cups provide an amazing sense of isolation.

When the maximum volume was reached, Sarah’s character snored when jumping from a very loud place, so I lowered the volume by a few notches.

The overall sound was more detailed and clear, as I can say that the enemies that I was fighting were using a variety of weapons and you could observe this with ease due to the clear distinction in the noise.

Playing virtual 7.1 surround sound requires you to download Asus software,

and unfortunately there is no way to toggle the feature as some other headphones provide.

In Borderlands 3, for example, I could tell that the waterfall was towards the right.

But with surround sound on, its presence sounded much larger,

the music also sounded more immersive, the background noise was quieter, the surround sound was very subtle.

Our Verdict

The Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4 is the type of gaming headset that could become your preferred option. Thanks to the features it contains such as easy portability, various connectivity options, and a lightweight construction.

It features high-point sound quality that is powerful and clear at the same time, especially with the built-in and detachable microphones.

As for the design, it’s professional-looking enough to make video calls with your boss as well.
