Roccat expands PC gaming headset lineup with the new Syn Air Pro
ROCCAT, Turtle Beach’s (Nasdaq: HEAR) Hamburg, Germany based PC peripheral brand, revealed the all-new Syn Pro Air premium wireless PC gaming headset. The Syn Pro Air is a groundbreaking addition to ROCCAT’s headset line, taking its rightful spot as the top wireless offering from the award-winning PC brand. The Syn Pro Air further elevates the perfect mix of ROCCAT’s German design and engineering with Turtle Beach’s audio expertise and patented technologies. The result is a sleek headset that clearly shows off ROCCAT’s signature style, with the brand’s Stellar Wireless technology as the backbone of a powerful 3D audio experience with long battery life and AIMO intelligent RGB lighting. The Syn Pro Air also features Turtle Beach’s exclusive, patented innovations such as Superhuman Hearing® for a competitive advantage, the TruSpeak™ high-sensitivity microphone to ensure you’re always heard clearly, and ProSpecs™ glasses-friendly ear cushions for those who game with glasses. ROCCAT’s Syn Pro Air will be available for pre-order from Australian retailers, available 18th June 2021 for an RRP of $249.95.
“Much like the Elo Series, the Syn Pro Air is the perfect combination of ROCCAT’s strong design focus and Turtle Beach’s audio expertise and class-leading tech,” says René Korte, ROCCAT Founder & General Manager for PC peripheral at Turtle Beach. “Syn Pro Air offers fans the latest 3D audio technology paired with flawless wireless connectivity, plus our semi-transparent Bionic Shell design that’s amplified with AIMO lighting. Syn Pro Air is hands-down our best PC gaming headset yet.”
The Syn Pro Air pushes the boundaries of traditional 7.1 surround sound even further. 3D audio introduces a third dimension to the soundscape, allowing gamers to hear from above and below in addition to hearing from all around them. The Syn Pro Air’s sound is powered by Turtle Beach’s 50mm Nanoclear™ drivers. In addition to fully immersive 3D audio, the Syn Pro Air offers Turtle Beach’s exclusive Superhuman Hearing sound setting, which boosts critical in-game sounds like approaching enemy footsteps for a competitive advantage.
The Syn Pro Air uses ROCCAT’s Stellar Wireless technology to deliver a flawless, cable-free experience. Stellar Wireless continually manages the headset’s signal strength and battery consumption to offer an impressive 24 hours of continuous use on a single charge. For gamers who might have forgotten to charge their devices before a gaming session, 15 minutes of USB-C rapid charge will offer up to five hours of play. The headset comes with a wireless 2.4 GHz USB-A transmitter with a 20Hz–20kHz speaker frequency response.
Built using ROCCAT’s latest and most advanced materials, the Syn Pro Air is a robust yet lightweight headset. The Bionic Shell design showcases ROCCAT’s renowned lighting ecosystem, AIMO, which offers up to 16.8 million colour lighting customisation options. AIMO will allow gamers to customise their Syn Pro Air to their taste and works right out of the box without the need for extensive configuration. Syn Pro Air also features Turtle Beach’s ProSpecs glasses-friendly cushions, which make gaming with spectacles a breeze, and its ear cushions feature plush memory foam while the perfect-fit headband guarantees comfort for hours. The cushions are wrapped in athletic fabric that’s breathable and has moisture-wicking properties to prevent the build-up of heat and sweat. Engineered to provide gamers with every possible convenience, Syn Pro Air includes intuitive on-ear audio controls for easy sound adjustment on the fly. The earcups also fold-flat, and the detachable flip-to-mute TruSpeak mic provides great versatility for gamers and streamers who travel.
