The musical side of Delta S Wireless

The Delta S Wireless performs well in music, especially considering it’s a gaming headset. With a balanced EQ setting in Asus ROG’s Armoury Crate software, the headset provided a dynamic bass, relatively clear vocals, and pleasant sound reproduction – but it’s only after the tuning (not in the default setting). It’s best to:

  • Select flat sound optimization
  • or add a new profile and manually configure the equalizer, and then
  • Save it as the default profile

As for the testing suite, we used the following songs:

  • Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven

  • Guns N' Roses - Welcome to the Jungle

  • Limp Bizkit – Boiler

  • Missy Elliott - Get Ur Freak On

We listened to all these tracks in lossless FLAC or played them on Spotify (320 kbps), and, as you can see, we covered a variety of genres. The Delta S Wireless makes the bass relatively weak. The instruments sound natural, and the vocals are represented well enough. Low-end instruments like the bass guitar and drums were reproduced with great depth and fullness. Bass drum reproduction is precise. The mid-range is a bit too warm by default. The soundstage and resolution are on a great level. Vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, and pianos came through clearly enough. Resonance felt natural. Midrange vocals had enough warmth. The upper end had no major issues with the treble. The Asus ROG Gaming Delta S Wireless has a V-shaped characteristic (typical for gaming headsets), with more than sufficient bass and treble combined with a slightly smaller midrange. Audiophiles will definitely prefer a more neutral sound, but you are not the target for this headset if you are one. The frequency response is relatively standard, so there are no extra points.

The Delta S Wireless provided a very good sound quality for an Average Joe. There’s no more significant reason to complain, especially considering this is a gaming headset, not an audiophile product. The sound stage and the headset’s capabilities were above average, with a very decent depth and direction. The Delta S Wireless is tuned to a balance with a focus on the (dynamic) bass and relatively clear voices.
