The American company Skullcandy is well renowned for their music enthusiasts-focused goods. The company has just released a new line of gaming headphones with practical features like memory foam ear cushions, inbuilt tactile controls, and detachable boom microphones.
SLYR, SLYR Pro, and PLYR are the three headphones that make up the current collection. So let’s examine them in more detail.
Skullcandy SLYR Pro
In addition to having all the comfort characteristics of the SLYR headphones, the SLYR Pro model is a multi-platform wired headset that also contains some additional features like Skullcandy’s more sophisticated audio processing technologies. Included in this are 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 based on your preferences and a hearing test. An internal battery powers these devices, allowing them to function independently for up to 24 hours on a single charge.
The line’s flagship headset is the Skullcandy PLYR. This gaming headset utilises Bluetooth 5.2 technology to enable both wireless and wired operation, enabling you to play games or listen to music while you’re on the go and stay connected to your home computer at the same time. You will have access to the same audio processing capabilities that are accessible in the SLYR Pro here. The built-in Tile Finding technology in the PLYR and SLYR Pro allows you to “ring” the headsets with the Tile app in the event that you ever lose them.
The entry-level device in the series is the Multi-Platform wired Skullcandy SLYR gaming headset. It includes with a bi-directional removable boom microphone for in-game communication and Skullcandy’s Supreme Sound technology for “superior in-game audio depth.” A mic mute button and a volume button are included in the onboard controls. The memory foam and lightweight materials used in the headset’s construction optimise comfort during extended gaming sessions.

Black DigiHype, Green DigiHype, and Blue DigiHype are the three colorways available for the $59.99 SLYR headset. The SLYR Pro, on the other hand, costs $99.99 and has the same hues as the base model.
