ASUS ROG Strix Wireless Review – Conclusion

There are a few minor issues though. Firstly the headband and earcups form some sort of vibration/echo combination. This means that if you get up and walk around with the headset on, the movement of walking causes the headband to move slightly and this vibration passes down to the earcups where it echo’s around the chamber. Over time this seems to be reducing but it was very noticeable to begin with. ASUS also note the benefits of the ability to fold the headset flat and remove the mic… so it would have been nice if they had bundled a case or travel bag in the box.

As far as the comfort goes. No real complaints there. The headset sits solidly in place with a decent amount of pressure. The headset feels light and we noted no discomfort from the headband over prolonged periods of use. The earcups are noted as using breathable protein leather however they do tend to get a little warm over time.

Installation of the Strix Wireless was simple. Basically plug and play on PC. PS4 users can also make use of wireless functionality with other devices/consoles using the bundled wires instead. The control panel provided by ASUS is easy to use and responsive with all the key functionality that users expect and it is good to see firmware updates are supported. That said, the USB cable ASUS provide is charge only. To update the headset firmware we need to find another cable (e.g. from a phone) to perform this task. Bizarre cost cutting indeed on a £100+ headset!

So that brings us to sound quality where the headset performs very well. The mic is decent though those who want to stream professionally will want a stand alone model (which makes the removable aspect a bonus). On the listening front, first up this is one of those useful headsets which is able to perform well in music tasks as well as movies and gaming. Often on gaming headsets we find games are fine (and movies which use a similar soundscape) but music leaves a lot to be desired. Not so here. This is very much a multi-purpose headset with a nice balance across the range for a wide range of music genres. For gaming we get plenty of bass with a good amount of detail in the high end. The virtual surround sound is good, offering a vast soundscape with good directional audio, especially in FPS games.

As a final point, it was great to note that the Strix Wireless has the best range of any wireless headset we have tested to date, often double some other wireless gaming headsets. It was also impacted less by other strong wifi signals and large appliances which often block or interfere with competing models.

Summary: A well-rounded gaming product which has a few quirks but overall provides good gaming audio end excellent wireless performance.
