ot on the heels of Turtle Beach’s awesome new Recon 500 gaming headset, the company’s PC division Roccat announces the Syn Pro Air wireless PC gaming headset.

This headset has a brand new form factor that looks quite different from the ELO series I reviewed earlier this year. Like that model, this features a combination of Turtle Beach audio technologies and Roccat industrial design. The drivers here are the excellent Nanoclear speakers found in popular Turtle Beach models like the Stealth 700 Gen 2. While the Nanoclear drivers don’t have the same kind of amazing new oomph found in the new Eclipse speakers inside the Recon 500… they do have an excellent, neutral sound profile with plenty of thump in the low end, and they’ve already proven themselves a reliable platform across many other headsets.

I’m also eager to see what Roccat does in the 3D object-based audio space. Windows 10 allows for third parties to craft their own 3D systems, something Razer took advantage of previously with their THX Spatial Audio. I have no doubt that Roccat will bring something interesting and exciting to this space. The virtual surround sound in the ELO 7.1 AIR was excellent. In spite of being built on top of the “Xear Surround” system seen on many other headsets, Roccat’s custom tuning and headset design gave it exemplary performance.

I also like that this new Syn Pro model is using some of the design language touches from Roccat’s current mice. The body and lighting design look just like the materials featured on the Burst Pro and Kone Pro, and if this headset brings that same sort of clever design to an audio product, it could be something special.

The Syn Pro Air launches on June 20th, with a price of $149.99. The full text of the press release and the video trailer are below!

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 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 color lighting customization options. AIMO will allow gamers to customize 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.
