Let’s take a look at what each helmet has to offer.

Skullcandy’s new flagship gaming headset, the PLYR.

The flagship design of the new Skullcandy gaming headsets is the PLYR. Featuring both wired and Bluetooth technology, players have the choice of going wireless or plugging in. Along with the ability to go wireless, there are a lot of cool technologies built into these headsets as well.

An interesting feature of the new headsets is what Skullcandy calls ESP (Enhanced Sound Precision). The ESP is an adaptation of another of the company’s technologies, but redesigned exclusively for games. When you install ESP, you perform a short hearing test so the software can fine-tune the experience to your ears.

On the microphone side of the headset, Skullcandy uses Clear Voice Smart Mic. In short, artificial intelligence enhances players’ voices while suppressing background noise. Also of note, the boom mic is removable for those of us who use different microphone solutions.
