Provider of economical headphones, Skullcandy is at it again, this time with a new trio of headphones. The SLYR, SLYR Pro, and PLYR provide multi-platform support, high build quality, and affordable price if you like to use wired or wireless headsets.
Skullcandy Price and availability
The SLYR headset costs $59.99 and comes in three colors: black, green, and blue. The SLYR Pro, on the other hand, costs $99.99 and comes in the same colors as the base model.
Finally, the flagship PLYR Wireless Gaming Headset is $129.99 and is only available in black.
Specifications and Features of SLYR :
The Skullcandy SLYR is the lineup’s entry-level Multi-Platform wired gaming headset. It has a bi-directional removable boom microphone for talking with friends or interacting in-game and Skullcandy’s Supreme Sound technology for “quality in-game audio depth.”
In comparison to the other two, this item is the most basic. It’s a simple set of entry-level headphones ideal for people who want to plug in and hear. According to Skullcandy, it has two 50mm speakers that produce a wide “frequency range and rich, detailed sound.”
On the cups are additional mute and volume buttons and an extendable microphone. So, a simple headset with no bells and whistles.
The memory foam and lightweight materials used in the headset’s construction optimize comfort during extended gaming sessions.
Specifications and Features of SLYR Pro
The SLYR Pro, as its name suggests, offers a lot more. In addition to having all the comfort aspects of the SLYR headphones, the SLYR Pro is a multi-platform wired headset that includes some additional features, like Skullcandy’s more sophisticated audio processing technologies.
This includes Skullcandy’s Clear Voice Smart Mic and Enhanced Sound Perception, which use artificial intelligence to reduce background noises like keyboard clicks and alter audio levels depending on your preferences and a hearing test.
An internal battery powers these devices, allowing them to operate autonomously for up to 24 hours on one charge.
Specifications and Features of PLYR
The line’s flagship headset is the Skullcandy PLYR. It isn’t easy to see why the PLYR headset should cost an additional $30. If you take things at face value, the PLYR headset boasts two unique features: Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and a built-in Tile function, a tracking technology.
This gaming headset utilizes Bluetooth 5.2 technology to enable both wireless and wired operation, allowing you to play video games or enjoy music while on the go and stay connected to your home computer simultaneously.
In addition, you will have access to the same audio processing capabilities that are accessible in the SLYR Pro here.
The built-in Tile Locating technology in the PLYR and SLYR Pro allows you to “ring” the headsets with the Tile app in the chance that you ever lose them.
Even though two of them are a little too identical for our preferences, Skullcandy’s new headsets appear to have a good chance of being durable. But the question still stands: would this be sufficient for Skullcandy to compete head-to-head (or ear-to-ear) with the gaming headset industry’s heavyweights?
Most likely not; however, these headphones are more entry-level and designed for gamers who don’t want to bother with the settings too much. They appear sufficient on that front.
