Introduction

ASUS recently sent out its ROG STRIX Go 2.4, and this headset is might actually be your next daily driver if you play PC games and also have a Nintendo Switch.

The ROG Strix Go 2.4 abandons the wireless Bluetooth connectivity and makes the jump to 2.4GHz, which ASUS boasts to have low-latency. The ROG STRIX Go 2.4 also features a USB-C adapter, which is compatible with the Nintendo Switch while it's in handheld mode, as well as Mac and PS4. For Xbox One users and other devices in general, ASUS has also provided a 3.5mm cable.

Today we will be running the ROG STRIX Go 2.4 through its paces to see if it's worth the hefty price tag of $210. We will be taking a look at the overall audio quality, if the claim of low latency is true, the design, the microphone quality, build quality, and ultimately, summing up the positives and negatives of the headset. So, if you want to see what ASUS has squeezed into the lightweight ROG STRIX Go 2.4, jump into the design breakdown on the next page.

Above, we are looking at the carry case for the ASUS ROG STRIX Go. The carry case is quite nice, feels strong and sturdy and would definitely be able to fit inside of a carry-on bag, or backpack. This image also shows off the 3.5mm cable and the USB-C to USB-A cable.

In this image we are looking at the carry case opened up, as you can see the headset fits nicely in the case, and all of the provided cables and connections can be stored over where the microphone is sitting. This carry case is great, well-done ASUS.

In this image, we are looking at how far the ROG STRIX Go's earcups can flex inwards, and from my experience with them, it's enough to make the headset comfortable while moving around and sitting.

In this image, we are looking at how the earcup can rotate 90 degrees. Users can comfortably rest the ROG STRIX Go on their shoulders without experiencing the headset choking them.
