Skullcandy SLYR PRO and PLYR gaming headsets launch with Enhanced Sound Perception and up to 24-hour batteries
Skullcandy's headphones are most often pitched at music lovers; however, with their wild "Digi-Hype" colorways, detachable boom mics and easy-access "on-board" physical controls, its latest accessories are clearly aimed at gamers. Accordingly, all 3 new headsets are equipped with "head-conforming, memory-foam ear cushions" and "moisture wicking, breathable" exteriors.
The new SLYR is the cheapest of Skullcandy's new foray into gaming hardware. It is as cross-platform as its more premium sibling, and features its OEM's "Supreme Sound" technology. Its PRO sibling improves on these specs with a mic that is enhanced with Skullcandy's AI-powered Clear Voice Smart Mic tech rather than merely bidirectional.
The Skullcandy PLYR also boasts all these features, as well as the same integrated Tile function for improved loss-prevention and estimated battery life (which the SLYR PRO apparently needs to deliver all its proprietary features). However, it is the only wireless headset of the OEM's new gaming line-up, with Bluetooth 5.2 for this purpose.
It is priced at US$129.99, whereas the SLYR PRO is set at US$99.99 and the base-model SLYR at $40 less than that. Skullcandy's new gaming headsets are available through channels such as Amazon from now.
