ASUS ROG Strix Wireless gaming headset review

Rating: 8.5.

ASUS has made a big push into the peripheral game in recent years, offering some unique looking products as part of its Strix line up. That owl-eye aesthetic continues with the latest entry in that range, the ROG Strix Wireless gaming headset. 

Along with those big orange earcups, it features virtual 7.1 surround sound, customisable audio through the Sonic Studio, 10+ hour claimed battery life and a decent wireless range.

We have quite enjoyed the previous iterations of the Strix headset, whether it is the second edition, or the 7.1 surround version. We did have consistent problems with a creaky plastic frame though, so considering this one features wireless operation, we hope ASUS has fixed that up.
