Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4
Ready, set, go

THIS MIGHT BE ONE of the best portable gaming headsets we’ve ever seen. Coming with a sleek hardshell carry case, detachable mic, and 3.5mm cable, along with wireless connectivity via a small USB-C dongle, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 can connect to just about any modern device, be it a PC, smartphone, tablet, or console. Apple fans may be left out in the cold, but hey, this isn’t Maximum iMac.

The Go uses a 2.4GHz wireless connection with twin antennas that results in virtually zero audio latency or interference. We found the sound quality to be crisp, clear, and lag-free, no matter what device we connected it to. The little black dongle is emblazoned with the Republic of Gamers logo, and comes with a USB-A adapter for use with consoles or older computers. We tested the connection on a desktop PC, a laptop, a PlayStation 4, a Nintendo Switch, and a Sony Xperia XZ2; every time, setup was as simple as turning on the headset and plugging in the dongle, even on first use.
