ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova


TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 21, 2024 —ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova gaming headphones. Designed for competitive gaming, these headphones boast ROG SpeedNova 2.4 GHz wireless technology for ultra-low-latency audio, reliable connection, and optimized power efficiency. The Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova offers high-resolution up to 24-bit / 96 kHz audio with details further enhanced by Dirac Opteo™ technology. Adaptive Active Noise Canceling optimizes noise cancelation based on the earpiece’s fit and shape of the ear canal, and Auto mode also adjusts the ANC effect based on ambient noise levels to ensure full immersion. Plus, bone-conduction AI microphones effectively enable precise voice pickup so the wearer is heard loud and clear. In Bluetooth mode, the Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova offers up to 46 hours of battery life. Charging is done wirelessly, plus there’s fast in-case charging to top up the headphones while on the go.

Dual-mode wireless connectivity

The ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova’s dual-mode wireless connectivity provides users with unrivaled flexibility, allowing them to connect via Bluetooth® or 2.4 GHz wireless. The Hybrid Multipoint feature allows for simultaneous pairing of two devices, one via Bluetooth and the other via the 2.4 GHz band with the bundled dongle.

ROG SpeedNova wireless technology

ROG SpeedNova wireless technology optimizes the 2.4 GHz band to deliver ultra-low latency audio performance and a robust connection. It’s also more energy efficient, providing up to 36 hours of battery life in 2.4 GHz mode.

Realistic audio

The ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova headphones take advantage of the LC3+ codec to deliver high-resolution 24-bit/96 kHz audio in 2.4 GHz mode. Additionally, Dirac Opteo™ offers rich details and accurate sound staging for true-to-life audio.
Adaptive ANC technology delivers major enhancements in noise cancelation as it makes real-time adjustments by constantly detecting how the earbuds are worn and how sound is reflected within the ear canal, resulting in personalized listening experiences. Plus, integrated wind-noise reduction actively reduces distracting wind noise. Additionally, an Auto mode identifies ambient noise levels and dynamically adjusts noise cancelation for immersive audio.

Bone-conduction AI microphones

The lack of a boom mic can make voice pick-up a challenge for earbud-based headphones, but the Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova features bone-conduction sensors that help clearly capture voice via the vibrations of the bones in the wearer’s head. Together with the AI Noise Canceling (ANC) beamforming microphones, they effectively reduce background noise while maintaining a natural sound to ensure crystal-clear calls.

Long battery life

The ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova headphones can be charged wirelessly or via a USB-C® connection. Fast in-case charging provides up to an hour of use with just a 5-minute charge, and up to 46 hours² of listening time (in Bluetooth mode).

Armoury Crate

The Armoury Crate app is designed to help users get the most out of the Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova headphones. It allows users to select linked devices, adjust the ANC mode (Auto / Low / Mid / High) or EQ levels, or even enable voice notifications. Armoury Crate can also be used to create a custom look with ASUS Aura RGB lighting, which offers up to 16.8 million colors and includes four preset light effects.
