How did the ASUS ROG Delta S Wireless do in the sound department? For starters, the Delta S Wireless had a typical V-shaped sound signature, which is typical for gaming headsets. The headset provided good audio during out tests, both for gaming and casually listening to music. The wireless range and battery life both outperformed their rated numbers, which was a pleasant surprise. The microphone works well enough for those looking to chat with others during games or even just for casual calls. Outside of functionality, the ASUS ROG Delta S Wireless looks good with its black and white color scheme, even without the RGB LED lighting you might see on other headsets out there. The Delta S Wireless is solidly built with strong steel arms and protein leather that feels comfortable through long periods of usage. The headset is also not too heavy, weighing in at 310g. Armoury Crate is a perfectly acceptable user software that is easy to use for those looking to customize the sounds attributes of the headset. One area of improvement is the passive noise blocking, which there was very little of on this headset. Unless my volume was at 70% or higher, I could usually hear my surrounding noises, which is not ideal if you are wishing to be fully immersed in your game or music. On the nitpicky side, I do also wish the USB Type-C receiver was straight rather than angled at 90 degrees, as it can block other ports when plugged into certain machines. Lastly, the microphone sounded a bit thin and hollow, so it has room for improvement. At press time, the ASUS ROG Delta S Wireless can be found for $150. For a headset with mostly solid sound capabilities and better than advertised battery life and wireless range, I would say the ASUS ROG Delta S Wireless is a decent product. That said, the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX is another wireless headset with good sound quality for gaming with significantly better battery life for $130, which gives the ROG Delta S Wireless a good run for its money.
