    What’s the difference between Wireless 2.4Ghz & Bluetooth 5.0?

    Game enthusiasts are no strangers to wireless gaming gears. When we choose wireless peripherals, we often see two different terms: 2.4Ghz and Bluetooth. What are their differences and their respective advantages and disadvantages?

    Both Bluetooth and 2.4Ghz are wireless connection technologies. Bluetooth is essentially a 2.4Ghz wireless technology. They also use the 2.4Ghz frequency band, and the Bluetooth standard is from the 2.402-2.480G frequency band.

    2.4GhzHz wireless technology is a short-distance wireless transmission technology with the advantages of two-way propagation, strong anti-interference, long transmission distance (referring to short-distance wireless connection technology), and low power consumption; while Bluetooth technology, which is based on The wireless transmission protocol of 2.4Ghz technology is called Bluetooth technology because it uses different protocols and Bluetooth technology is not free, so it is different from other 2.4Ghz technologies.

    For competitive peripherals, limited by the Bluetooth technology protocol, some functions cannot be achieved by Bluetooth, such as the 1000Hz rate of return on a gaming mouse, so many peripheral companies will use their own 2.4Ghz wireless technology. The development optimization enables the gaming mouse in the wireless connection state to have a millisecond rate of return equivalent to that of the wired connection, and also optimizes the battery power consumption to improve the battery life of the gaming mouse.

    Bluetooth Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that can realize short-distance data interaction between fixed devices, mobile devices and building personal area networks. It is more commonly used in peripheral products (mouse, keyboard, headset, etc.). Bluetooth has a one-to-many working mode, and does not need to rely on an external receiver for connection. It only needs the device to have a Bluetooth module to achieve code pairing.

    ONIKUMA B7 gaming headset adopts 2.4Ghz/BT5.0 dual-modes connection, which will greatly increase the stability of data transmission to lower delay of the sound receiving, helping users precise positioning enemies the first time.

    In general, 2.4Ghz wireless connection technology is more powerful and stable in connection performance (millisecond-level response technology, plug and play, low power consumption, etc.), 2.4Ghz wireless products must be equipped with NANO receivers, which can only achieve one-to-one work model.

    The Bluetooth wireless connection technology does not need a receiver, it only needs to have a Bluetooth module function on the device to connect, and it can achieve a one-to-many working mode at the same time, but it must be connected to the code, limited by the Bluetooth protocol, in terms of single-point performance. Part of the competitive performance of 2.4Ghz cannot be achieved.
