ASUS ROG Delta S Wireless Review

Rating: 7.0.

The Delta S Wireless is one of the latest additions to Asus' ROG range of peripherals.

Pros:

  • Loud.
  • Comfortable.
  • Multiple ear cushions included.
  • Good sound quality (once tweaked)

Cons:

  • Poor microphone performance.
  • Terrible software.
  • Only average battery life.

KitGuru says: The Delta S Wireless does offer a lot of features on paper. While it is a loud and very comfortable headset, the experience of using it is hindered by very poor software and average microphone performance. If you're looking for the convenience of not having a microphone protruding in front of your face then it may be worth checking out.
