High-End Headset with Optimized Audio Drivers
Pohlheim, 20 January 2022 – Sharkoon Technologies, an international supplier of high-quality, high-performance PC components and peripherals, now introduces the SKILLER SGH50. This is a high-performance gaming headset with Hi-Res Audio certification and carefully balanced audio drivers for immersive gaming and intense music enjoyment. To fit the head, the ear cups and headband adjust automatically and, together with their soft synthetic leather cushioning, should ensure lasting comfort.
According to the manufacturer, the audio drivers of the SKILLER SGH50 were continuously optimized during an ongoing process in order to achieve an expressive and crystal-clear sound. In addition, the SKILLER SGH50 has Hi-Res Audio certification as well as a certified frequency range from 10 hertz to 40 kilohertz. In games, opponents can be acoustically located, and explosions can be powerfully reproduced. When listening to music, the sounds of treble, mid and bass are harmoniously balanced so that no details are lost.
Clear and Understandable
The microphone of the SKILLER SGH50 can be detached if necessary, and it is equipped with a pop filter which should effectively filter plosive sounds, enabling clear communication in video conferences and voice chats.
Fits Any Head
According to the manufacturer, particular emphasis has been placed on comfortable wearing. The ear cups, which are padded with supple synthetic leather, and the headband automatically adapt to the shape of the head. The SKILLER SGH50 should therefore be comfortable to wear even after hours of use.
Durable and Modular
According to the manufacturer, the cables are particularly robust and durable, thanks to their TPE sheathing. The modular configuration of the cables allows easy connection to all devices with audio ports. Also, the inline controller can be used to accessibly mute the microphone and adjust the volume.
