The latest Puro Sound Labs headset aims to boost aural health in gaming
Puro Sound Labs is a company associated with high-grade audio products that focus on clearer listening at lower volumes. To this end, its previous releases include a headset directed at children. Its successor, the PuroGamer, is aimed at a different audience, however.
This "genuine studio-grade" headset incorporates its manufacturer's Puro Balanced Response Curve technology, which, it is claimed, delivers clear, high-quality audio even though the device's maximum volume is set at 85 decibels (dB).
The PuroGamer does this using its 50mm graphene drivers. The headset also includes comfortable ear cups with "75% ambient noise isolation". The OEM may hope that these features will help manage the risk of permanent hearing damage, which, as research has shown, becomes more pressing with longer listening sessions at volumes of 85dB or more.
The headset also comes with an omni-directional detachable boom microphone rated for noise-canceling and anti-interference functions. Puro Sound Labs claims that it works well with PCs, Macs, Playstations 4, Xbox consoles and mobile devices. The PuroGamer will be released in September 2019 onto Amazon and PuroSound.com, and is set at US$79.99 in these stores.
