Immersive gaming isn’t just about graphics. A high-caliber audio experience can take a solid game to incredible new heights, which is why we’ve designed the ROG Strix Go lineup of headsets to deliver pure sound in a portable package for an immersive audio experience wherever you go. With four different options that fit a variety of needs, you can be sure we have the Strix for you. Here’s how to choose between the Strix Go 2.4, Strix Go BT, Strix Go, and Strix Go Core. 

All of our Strix Go headsets are compact and lightweight, allowing you to take them anywhere. Their simple and foldable design adds a touch of flair without looking out of place, so they’ll feel at home whether you’re out and about or at home fragging foes in your gaming den. However, each model has a slightly different set of features, so it’s important to pick the right model for you.

ROG Strix Go 2.4: Feature-filled wireless audio that travels anywhere

Once you cut the cord, it’s hard to go back. The ROG Strix Go 2.4 uses low-latency wireless connectivity through a USB Type-C transceiver so you can game freely on PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Android, or any other device that supports USB-C. And for devices that don’t, like an Xbox One or Series X, you can easily plug in using the wired 3.5mm connection without skipping a beat. No matter what device you’re using, the Strix Go 2.4 is ready to rock. And with fast charging in tow, you can juice up for a 3-hour gaming session in only 15 minutes. 

The Strix Go 2.4’s immersive audio is produced by 40mm ASUS Essence drivers in airtight chambers, providing rich sound with deep bass. Virtual 7.1 surround sound is configurable through our Armoury Crate software and Windows Sonic, letting you hear enemies sneaking up around you, and the lightweight 290g design goes absolutely anywhere. It even comes with a convenient carrying case. 

The Strix Go 2.4 features both a hidden microphone and a detachable boom mic, so your comrades can hear crystal clear communications. These AI Noise Canceling Microphones enhance your speech even further, reducing background noise so your communications are unsullied by the clack of your keyboard or the roar of a city bus. Grab the Strix Go 2.4 in black or Electro Punk for a pop of color that stands out from the crowd.

ROG Strix Go BT: The ultimate portable gaming companion

If you’re constantly out and about, the ROG Strix Go BT is prepared to keep you company. Instead of 2.4GHz wireless from a wireless receiver, the Strix Go BT uses Bluetooth 5.0 with Qualcomm® aptX™ Adaptive audio technology, ensuring high audio quality with low latency so your game audio stays in sync. With up to 45 hours of super-long battery life on a single charge enables nonstop gaming. For devices that don’t support Bluetooth, you can connect the headset with a traditional 3.5mm cable — meaning you can play on any device, anywhere. 

40mm ASUS Essence drivers and airtight chambers deliver rich sound with optimized bass, with an extra twist: because the Strix Go BT is designed to truly travel anywhere, we added active noise cancelation (ANC) to the headphones to diminish the bustle of the outside world. Whether you’re on a plane or in a crowded coffee shop, you can tune out external noise and let your game take center stage. 

We’ve also built our AI noise-cancelation into the headset’s hidden microphone, so your voice comes through clearly on calls and in-game voice comms. For the gamer on the go, the Strix Go BT always has your back.

If you like the style and feature set of the Strix Go line but don’t need wireless connectivity, the ROG Strix Go headset has exactly what you need. Its USB Type-C connector allows for high quality audio through the built-in DAC, funneling crystal clear sound to its airtight chambers housing 40mm ASUS Essence drivers. 

Since it needs no built-in battery, the Strix Go is even more lightweight than its wireless brethren, at only 262g. Coupled with its foldable design, it’s an excellent companion for gaming at home or on-the-go. 

The Strix Go comes with the same industry-leading AI noise-canceling microphone to ensure clean communications with your teammates, certified by Discord and TeamSpeak. Physical microphone, volume, and media controls on the earcup round out the crucial features that keep your head in the game—and not on your gear.

The detachable boom mic allows for easy communication with your squad. As an extra bonus, the Strix Go Core is available in black or our special Moonlight White, to match even the frostiest setups.
