Light it up with superior sound
The groundbreaking ROG Delta S Animate features amazing programmable AniMe Matrix™ displays on the ear cups, a hi-fi-grade ESS 9281 Quad DAC™ with MQA support for impeccable audio and an ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Microphone for clear communication. At only 310 grams, it also ensures comfort with fast-cooling ROG Hybrid ear cushions, and USB-C® and USB-A connectors bring multi-platform compatibility.
Customizable AniMe Matrix™ Displays
Cutting-edge AniMe Matrix™ displays on each ear cup feature mini-LEDs that can be programmed to show off your style with custom lighting designs, unique animations and live audio visualizations.
Soundwave Light Effects
Exclusive Soundwave light effects make lights flash in sync with the sound of your voice. You can activate the effects via the control switch on the ear cup, and you can choose your favorite colors via Armoury Crate software.
High-Resolution ESS 9281 Quad DAC™
The ESS 9281 Quad DAC™ contains four digital-to-analog converters (DAC) that provide lossless audio processing. There's a DAC for each frequency band — low, mid, high and ultra-high — for clearer sound, and an unparalleled 130 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). With ROG Delta S Animate, you can hear every detail and enjoy crisp, clear sound for a true-to-life audio experience.
Built-In MQA Renderer
Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is an award-winning audio technology that delivers studio-quality sound and reveals every detail of the original recording. The ROG Delta S Animate headset can connect to an MQA core signal, which is used by global streaming service apps such as TIDAL, to complete the final 'unfold' of an MQA music file and provide incredible audio quality.
High SNR in FPS Games
A high signal-to-noise ratio is critical for gaming headsets, especially in FPS games. A higher SNR allows you to precisely pinpoint the origin of enemy footsteps, or hone in on the location of gunfire or explosions on the battlefield. With its ESS 9281 Quad DAC™ design, ROG Delta S Animate is capable of achieving an unprecedented 130 dB SNR, unrivaled by single DAC headsets.
Crystal-Clear Highs and Punchy Bass
The exclusive ASUS Essence drivers are mounted in airtight chambers for clearer, richer audio. These high-resolution drivers feature a wide frequency response of 20–40 kHz to provide incredibly strong bass and optimized gaming audio, so you'll hear every detail while enjoying an all-around immersive acoustic experience.
Exclusive Hyper-Grounding Technology
Exclusive ROG Hyper-Grounding technology uses a multi-layer printed circuit board and a special layout to prevent electromagnetic interference, ensuring that all you hear is pure, noise-free audio.
ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Microphone
The ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Microphone (AI Mic) has a dedicated processor that’s designed to reduce over 500 million types of background noise while preserving vocal harmonics for crystal-clear in-game voice communication. Common background noises such as chatter, keyboard clatter and mouse clicks are reduced by up to 95%.Learn More about AI Mic
Certifiably Clear Communication
The AI Mic is unidirectional, detachable and certified by both Discord and TeamSpeak. An indicator light on the tip of the boom flashes red when the microphone is muted, so you can quickly check its status.
The USB-C® connector and included USB-C® to USB-A adapter cable* provide compatibility with PCs, Macs, PlayStation® 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch™ and mobile devices.

Crafted for Comfort
ROG Delta S Animate is exceptionally lightweight at only 310 grams. Ergonomic D-shaped ear cups closely match the shape of your ears to reduce unnecessary contact areas by up to 20%, and a sloped design provides better comfort and also helps improve sound quality by channeling audio directly into the ear canal, tilting the drivers at a 12° angle.
