Skullcandy returns to gaming with range of headsets – channelnews

Audio company Skullcandy has returned to the gaming category with a new line of budget headsets for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and mobile.

The SLYR, SLYR Pro and PLYR Multi-Platform Gaming Headsets offer all-day comfort and rich, detailed sound, with the SLYR starting at $149.95 and the collection ending at the $249.95 PLYR.

As befits the price, the PLYR (below) is the flagship wireless performance with a gaming-specific adaptation of Skullcandy’s Personal Sound technology, which the company calls “like prescription glasses, but for your ears.”

Enhanced sound perception requires users to take an innovative hearing test to tailor audio drivers specifically to the user’s unique hearing.

SLYR Pro and PLYR models also offer the ability to cycle through various gaming EQs, including ESP and custom EQ.

“Everyone knows that Skullcandy offers a premium sound experience and going back to gaming has been something our fans have been asking for for years. We are excited to release our new multi-platform game collection into the wild,” said Jason Luthman, Director of Global Product Management , skull candy.

“As gamers will attest, exceptional audio, seamless communication and comfort are absolutely crucial. From illuminating unique nuances with personalized audio profiles to performing crystal clear player-to-player communication, we’ve packed PLYR, SLYR Pro and SLYR with the must-have technologies gamers need for fully immersive gameplay.

All three models have memory foam ear cushions wrapped in moisture-wicking, breathable fabric. Boom mics also come equipped with a microphone status LED, so players can easily see they’re on mute or live.

Below are the specifications of all three models:
