UNBOXING AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS
I am impressed with what ASUS did on the Cetra’s packaging. It’s quite nice and unboxing this thing feels very premium. On the front, an image of the ROG Cetra is shown along with its name and ROG logo on the top left area. While on the back, A lot of information is written here and its features.
Opening the box requires flipping the flip-up the cover and then you can see the headset housed in soft foam and you can also see the pouch. Other accessories are found inside the pouch.

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The ROG Cetra is an in-ear type of earbuds. They are quite reminiscent to my Xiaomi Pistons but with a very aggressive design with ROG logo which lights up RED when it gets connected to a source. the earpiece is made of quality hard plastic. Both earpieces have holes in them due to the ANC feature it offers.
The cable is rubber and non-removable, but it is reinforced for protection to avoid damaging the circuitry and wires when accidentally pulling it.
The microphone can be found in the right of the cable and the control box is centered to keep the weight distribution balanced. The connector is USB Type-C, because of its ANC feature and they moved away from the traditional ANC feature (which has a built-in battery and 3.5mm connector) that other brands offer like Bose.
