ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today showcased the ROG Strix Go 2.4 wireless gaming headset and ROG Pugio II ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse, designed to elevate on-the-go gaming experiences, at CES 2020.

Stay competitive for hours at a time with the ROG Strix Go 2.4 wireless headset, engineered with AI-powered noise cancelling technology and super-low latency over a 2.4GHz connection for the fastest possible auditory feedback in games. And for users’ PC gaming needs, the highly customizable ROG Pugio II ambidextrous wireless mouse lets users game how they want with configurable side buttons, a customizable badge, RGB lighting and main button switches.

 

Perfect wireless audio for gaming anywhere with the ROG Strix Go 2.4

The ROG Strix Go 2.4 wireless headset was built to keep gamers competitive for hours at a time, with up to 25 hours of battery life on a full charge via USB-C. Engineered for super-low latency over a 2.4GHz connection for the quickest possible auditory feedback in games, the Strix Go 2.4 comes with an L-shaped USB-C-compatible dongle that extends compatibility to any USB-C-equipped PCs, laptops, gaming consoles, and phones, while the bundled USB 2.0 and 3.5mm adapters allows users to plug the Strix Go 2.4 into just about any other gaming device. For extra portability, users can fold the ROG Strix Go 2.4 up and slip it into the bundled travel pouch.

Crisp, high-resolution sound travels through the ROG Strix Go 2.4 by way of 40mm ASUS Essence drivers in airtight chambers for maximum immersion and clean, distortion-free audio. Each headset cup is designed for comfort as well as proper sound isolation with an airtight seal. When plugging in the Strix Go 2.4 into a 3.5mm audio jack, the headset can even reproduce Hi-Res audio, stretching frequency response from 10Hz all the way up to 40kHz.

The Strix Go 2.4 includes a detachable, bi-directional boom mic bolstered by AI-powered noise-canceling technology that’s trained on a massive database containing a wide range of environmental noise samples so that the Strix Go 2.4 can identify and counteract environmental noise. A second mic in one of the ear cups also benefits from this AI-powered noise cancellation technology.

Users can access all of the Strix Go 2.4’s hardware controls from the left side of the headset. Integrate the Strix Go 2.4 with Armoury II software for even more functionality, including preset profiles, equalizer, environmental effects, a bass boost feature, and microphone filters.

 

The ROG Pugio II: The go anywhere, do anything wireless mouse

The new ROG Pugio II ambidextrous wireless mouse is a jack-of-all-trades, built around a modern 16,000 DPI sensor that can be fine-tuned thanks to the unique DPI On-The-Scroll feature for on-the-fly customization. Tapping into the sensor’s potential is effortless thanks to a host of customizable features – choose between wireless technologies, configurable side buttons, personalized badges, socketed switches, and RGB light zones.

The Pugio II offers both wireless and wired connection options to fit different playstyles. Plug in an included 2.4GHz RF dongle for the ROG Pugio II’s built-in radio with a 1000Hz polling rate for competition-grade responsiveness, or switch on Bluetooth mode. The Pugio II’s built-in Smart Hop wireless technology identifies and avoids the congestion and interference that surrounds the 2.4GHz band in real time, ensuring strong, stable connections. The Pugio II also comes with a light and flexible two-meter cable if users want to go the wired route or recharge the mouse’s internal batteries – plugging in via USB fully charges the Pugio II in under two hours. The Pugio II offers excellent battery life in wireless mode, with up to 69 hours* of play when connected via 2.4 GHz or a stupendous 100 hours over Bluetooth LE. (*battery-life estimates are based on using Pugio II without RGB lighting).

The Pugio II comes with an ROG badge installed in the palm rest, backlit by RGB lighting. Users can customize their Pugio II with the included blank badge, which can be designed with any icon or logo and be easily applied by removing the outer shell. Explore further customization by firing up Armoury II software to configure the Pugio II’s surface calibration settings, personalize the three available lighting zones, map its buttons, and switch between the three built-in profiles, and launch the Aura Sync utility to integrate the Pugio II’s RGB LEDs with other Aura Sync-capable components.

The ROG Pugio II is truly ambidextrous, with a shape that’s comfortable to hold. The Pugio II sports a pair of magnetic buttons on both the left and right sides, and bundled covers allow users to hide the pair they don’t plan to use, preventing accidental clicks. With ROG’s exclusive push-fit switch socket design, users can also customize the feel of the mouse buttons. By default, the Pugio II includes Omron D2FC-F-K switches rated for 50 million clicks, with an extra pair of Japanese-made Omron D2F-01Fs included in the accessory case. For additional customization, the push-fit switch socket design can fit any Omron D2F- or D2FC-series switch to change the Pugio II’s operating force and feedback.
