SkullCandy unveils a trio of gaming headsets

If you're the type that wants optimal sound while gaming then Skullcandy has a few new stylish headphones you might want to take a peek at. While we've seen some crazy designs from them in the past these three new gaming headsets look rather impressive. They've quietly unveiled the SLYR, PLYR 1, and PLYR 2 headsets.

Whether or not these can compete with the likes of Turtle Beach and more remains to be seen, but Skullcandy's recent purchase of Astro Gaming should surely help. This past week they announced three new headsets on their website, but we haven't heard or seen much about them until today.

The SkullCandy SLYR (don't ask where they came up with that name) will grace their budget offering starting out at around $80, and then the others will increase with the impressive PLYR 2 hitting the $180 mark. The SLYR features a wired headset, a foldable boom-mic for portability, and the usual in-line volume controls and mute those gamers all love.

It looks like SkullCandy will be offering a set of different EQ options with all three new headsets too. Then moving on the more expensive models. The PLYR 1 and 2 offer awesome sound, exceptional design and colors, and the same foldable boom-mic. They'll run you $130, then the more expensive PLYR 2 hits the $180 mark having a $50 premium simply for Dolby Digital headphone surround sound virtualization features. More details can be found at Skullcandy for those interested.
