ASUS ROG Strix Wireless Review

Closer Look

The headset itself is similar to the design of the previous Strix headsets we have looked at, though no cables protruding from anywhere. The frame is large black plastic and features a suspension style headband that automatically adjusts to your size.

Folded flat, you see the inspiration for the Strix design (the robotic owl) staring back at you. The orange on black design is attractive, though for some the aesthetic may be a little too 'gamer', though subjectively, some will appreciate the aesthetics. There is also some subtle branding, displaying that this headset is the ROG Strix, an indication that it is the wireless version.

The earcups house some large 60mm drivers and in turn, the earcups themselves are huge. This isn't anything different from the Strix headset family and will easily cover the ears of giants.

The adjustable headhand is made from soft leatherette and features soft foam cushions for comfort.

The left side earcup features various controls and IO, including the 3.5mm port, the microphone port, the micro USB port as well as the volume up/down, microphone mute, and the power/pairing buttons.

The complete package fits in neatly with the Strix styling.
