Today we are taking a look at a lower end model from the STRIX Gaming headset collection, the 2.0. Featuring 60mm drivers, stereo audio and high cross compatibility, we will take an in-depth look at how the STRIX 2.0 performs and if it is really worth its price tag.
To start, the STRIX series from ASUS is a range that offer a variety of hardware from GPU’s to headsets, mice to keyboards, designed for and built by gamers. Prices vary and for most peripherals, a specification hierarchy split the lower end products from the medium and higher which in turn, caters for those gaming on a budget, upgrading or looking for top of the line gear. Each piece of hardware follows on with a futuristic metallic feel that mimics the mascot of the brand, the infamous avian creature.
With a price of £56.32 (Sale price – Amazon UK) or $149 (RRP – Amazon US), we will be looking at the STRIX 2.0 with open eyes to see if the mid-level price tag is a suitable figure for a multi-platform gaming headset of this specification.
Details for the specification section of this review have come from the official ASUS STRIX 2.0 product page and can be found here. We have adjusted them to make them a little more user-friendly compared to the original details provided by the ASUS website.
