I recently reviewed the Roccat Kone Pro mouse that improved my PC game experience exponentially. So, how can I expect it to be better? With the Syn Air Air Headphones, of course. And let me tell you that Roccat does not disappoint here. That's all you want in a helmet and more. It may not be the most economical, but it is certainly delivered with an incredible sound design.
You are sure to get an idea of the beauty of the syn pro air helmet based on the only box, but you will not know how amazing RGB lighting until you connect it. This is super easy, wireless, because it is only a transmission dongle with both a USB plug-in and an interchangeable type C plug-in. As soon as you take out this box listening helmet, you will notice that it is very resistant, even if it is entirely plastic. It's probably because it's the same plastic, the bionic hull, that Roccat uses for its recent mice.
Which, speaking of this bionic hull, is the source of my only true reproach with the Syn Air. Not because of its durability, but because it shows each fingerprint. It would not bother me if I knew it was not perceptible, but with the Aimo lighting in the headphones, they appear even more. And where you do not want to highlight anything, with the exception of elegant design and the color range. I would suggest a short wiping after putting them, just in case someone would take a look while you play, and after your game session to ensure longevity.
Syn Air is not only designed to last, but it is also designed for comfort. There are vertical sliders to make sure it adapts to all heads of different shapes, the atria is fully rotatable and the microphone is detachable and flexible. In fact, the entire headband is also flexible enough. Breathable atillettes are not my favorite because it is a more rough material, however, as the helmet does not move too much, this is not very visible during the game. Despite his more rough texture than, say The velvet cushions you can find on most Astro helmets, it evacuates all perspiration and keep your ears cool all the time. In addition, the cushions themselves are quite thick and look like pillows on your ears. And the best part for those of us who wear glasses is that it also includes the Prospected Design Glasses Friendly of Turtle Beach. The best part for anyone is that he does not complicate his outdoor design too much. There is the power button and two volume buttons, one for the cat, one for the sound, and that's it. It leaves the rest of the sound design at new NEON ROCCAT software.
Even without this NEON ROCCAT software, Syn Air Air brings out the sound design and park performance. Of course, the sound of the microphone that your friends might hear is not as good as a self-contained microphone designed for podcasts or streaming, but it is close. The Neon Roccat software is currently in beta, but it has interesting features such as color design modification of course, but also the ability to adjust the volume of your game and your cat, and activate the 3D audio and superhuman hearing. As a warning, these parameters are not transferred to other platforms, such as PS5. On PS5, the sound is always as clear, just as clear, without the additional advantages of 3D audio and superhuman hearing.
Turtle Beach's superhuman hearing technology has been one of my favorite advances in headphones throughout my player career and although this is probably just about personal preferences, it's my favorite way to play N ' Any FPS title. It highlights the steps more efficiently and allows a faster reaction time. In fact, it is the surest way to annoy the enemy team and I live for the accusations of mod or cheating that will not fail to follow. What I had not really discovered yet, however, that's how powerful 3D audio can be powerful and how impacts your immersion. Until Syn Air, of course. Take for example any game in open world or action-adventure. Each bird tweet, each boat that slips into the water, each vehicle in the distance around you completely. The 3D sound design brings you further into the game for an experience that you will not be ready to forget. Get ready to shit your pants when you play a horror title, like Resident Evil, because if you thought it was scary before, just wait to jump at each little sound.
Roccat promised 24-hour autonomy and fast load capabilities, both of which are 100%. I spent my time with this helmet trying to discharge the battery and it's about 24 hours. What is incredible is that if your helmet is dying, just connect it, prepare a quick 10 minute snack and you will be ready to play again for hours. In reality, if you connect once a week or at the end of a weekend game marathon, you will never have any problems.
Aside from the speed with which the outer hull of the helmet is dirty with fingerprints and the material on the atria, which do not interfere with its performance, Syn Pro Air is an incredible helmet that is suitable for almost every1. It is comfortable, elegant like hell and offers superb sound design on PC and PS5. It does not complicate anything, allows an incredible customization and is a very complete headset that brings the immersive game to the upper level. The only people to whom he might not answer, given its price of $ 149.99, are the budgeted players. Syn air is not luxury in pure state, but it's pretty close.
