The set includes SLYR, PLYR2 and PLYR1.
“Skullcandy has been delivering performance audio products with a unique perspective on action sports and music culture for years,” said Jeremy Andrus, CEO of Skullcandy. “Gaming connects everyone we work with, from skateboarders to NBA superstars. The authenticity and attitude of the Skullcandy brand is the driving force behind our gaming mantra, “Never Retreat, Never Surrender,” and is the inspiration for our new series of gaming headsets. All three products were also designed and developed cooperatively with our premium gaming headset market leader, ASTRO Gaming.”
The first headset, SLYR, is out now for $79.99. The wired headset can be used on 360, PS3, WiiU and PC. It features a GMX in-line mixer with volume and voice controls, along with custom audio profiles.
The second headset PLYR2, is a wireless headset out this holiday season.
Finally, PLYR1 will be out early next year. It is wireless as well, but uses Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound as well.
The headsets will be available at GameStop, Target and Best Buy online. PLYR 2 will cost $129.99 and PLYR1 will cost $179.99.
