The ROG Strix Go 2.4 is certainly the second ROG headset I’ve actually grown to love. The first one of course is the ROG Delta. Since the Delta came out, ROG has had numerous new releases like the Theta but outside of those high-end products, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 definitely stood out for me.

First off, this was the first ROG headset which is actually portable. Earphones aside, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 looks and feels like its made for the street. The folding band, the compact earcups, etc. Everything was just meant to be portable for the ROG Strix Go 2.4 The name itself suggests this. What makes the ROG Strix Go 2.4 much more special is its sheer versatility. Compared the JBL Quantum 400 we’ve reviewed before, the only lacking feature on the JBL was a wireless feature which was reserved for higher models. The ROG Strix Go 2.4 is a Php8,530 model, a hair pricier than the JBL but provides a more subdued style as well as total wireless support.
The two headsets collide though in sheer versatility. The ROG Strix Go 2.4 offers support for nearly all current-gen consoles as well as 3.5mm devices. This versatility would surely please people who may be like me and have a lying down console area as well as a sitdown desk gaming area where I don’t really want to keep a headset for both. The wireless nature of the ROG Strix Go also means it can be used with your mobile device with getting tangled in cords. For Xbox though, you’re stuck but for PS4 and the Switch, you’re pretty much free as a bird and that is one of the strong points of the ROG Strix Go 2.4 headset.
As part of the ROG Electro Punk series, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 feels the most optional. Many users would still prefer to use speakers and while the color blocking on the ROG Strix Go is certainly stylish, add to that the tampograph prints on the headband makes this headset a really nice design piece and for the Electro Punk, it’s certainly a standout design but its ultimately a subjective addition to the set and would still be optional whether used on a desktop or with the laptop.
Performance-wise, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 is fine. Its nowhere near an M50x in terms of sound quality but its not trying to be. Ultimately though, audio quality falls between a touch below mainstream audio gear right now when listening in wireless mode. The headset itself might be susceptible to interference from other wireless devices.
All in all, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 is quite usable but would not please any audiophile. Still, the headset performs reasonably for its weight-class and provides and the versatility of this headset far outweights its shortcomings, which in terms of audio quality, will always be subjective.
