Skullcandy adds PLYR, SLYR gaming headsets to catalog

updated 10:01 am EDT, Fri September 21, 2012

Wired, wireless gaming headsets include unique styling

Skullcandy has put three new gaming headsets online for order. The aptly-named SLYR, PLYR 1, and PLYR 2 headsets all appear to be taking on characteristics of lines from recently-acquired Astro Gaming, but also add in the unique style that Skullcandy is known for, including bright colors and a striking design.

The entry-level SLYR has a fold-out boom microphone and an in-line remote control for volume, voice chat balancing, and three EQ settings. The more expensive PLYR 2 uses a pivoting mic that isn't hidden like the SLYR, is compatible with the Xbox, PS3, and PC, includes an equalizer and a wireless basestation. The PLYR 1 adds Dolby Headphone surround-sound virtualization on top.

Only the SLYR is actively on-sale right now, at a cost of $80. Both the PLYR 1 and PLYR 2 are set to be dispatched in the near future, for $180 and $130 respectively. [via Engadget]
