Skullcandy has released news that its re-entry to the gaming zone with a trio of value-packed headsets for all skill levels.
Offering compatibility across PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and mobile, the all-new SLYR, SLYR Pro and PLYR Multi-Platform Gaming Headsets were purpose built for gamers, delivering rich, detailed sound, crystal-clear communications, and all-day comfort.
“Everyone knows Skullcandy offers a premium sound experience and getting back into gaming is something our fans have been requesting for years–We’re stoked to release our new multi-platform gaming collection into the wild,” said Jason Luthman, Director of Global Product Management, Skullcandy. “As gamers will attest, exceptional audio, seamless communication and comfort are absolutely crucial. From illuminating unique nuances with personalised audio profiles, to executing crystal-clear player-to-player comms, we packed PLYR, SLYR Pro and SLYR with the must-have technologies gamers demand for fully immersive play.”
The ideal lifestyle-to-livestream audio companion, PLYR, the collection’s flagship offering, is perfect for gamers who desire maximum flexibility to play both wired or wirelessly via Bluetooth. To add maximum dimension to the audio experience, PLYR adapted Skullcandy’s well-known Personal Sound technology, re-engineering it specifically for gaming.
Like prescription glasses, but for your ears, the enhanced technology is called Enhanced Sound Perception (ESP) and requires users to take an innovative hearing test to tune audio drivers specifically to the user’s unique hearing.
To deliver crystal clear communications, PLYR features Clear Voice Smart Mic, which leverages artificial intelligence to isolate the speaker’s voice and cut out background noises, such as keyboard clicks. The technology works with both the boom mic, and on-board headset mic if boom mic is removed. Dual-connect capabilities enables users to connect via wired and wireless connection to stream audio from two separate devices, simultaneously. Lastly, an adjustable suspension headband reduces pressure on top of the head, an absolute must for all-day play.
For gamers seeking a premium wired-only gaming experience, SLYR Pro is the answer, offering must-have features like ESP and Clear Voice Smart Mic technology with detachable boom mic. SLYR Pro also sports a slightly redesigned headband for those who prefer a more classic, yet comfortable fit.
Casual gamers seeking an entry-level solution will want to turn their attention to SLYR. Supreme Sound maximises the gaming experience, providing premium in-game audio depth to ensure users not only hear enemies creeping up from behind, but also the roar of the crowd. SLYR also features a bi-directional removable boom mic that enables focused voice pickup, ensuring gamers can seamlessly communicate and collaborate with clarity in multiplayer settings.
PLYR, SLYR Pro and SLYR models are all constructed from tough, lightweight materials, each boasting head-conforming, memory-foam ear cushions wrapped in moisture wicking, breathable material. Easy-to-reach, on-board controls across each headset enables gamers to quickly mute and adjust volume without gameplay interference. Boom mics are also equipped with a mic-status LED so players know at a glance when they’re on mute or “on air.” SLYR Pro and PLYR models also include the ability to toggle through various gaming EQs, including ESP and custom EQ.
Each headset is beautifully designed and set off with a unique digitised aesthetic, blending the nostalgia of gaming with a modern form factor. SLYR and SLYR Pro are being offered in three colourways: Black DigiHype, Green DigiHype and Blue DigiHype, with PLYR available in Black DigiHype and available now.
