The Skullcandy PLYR1 is the pinnacle of the company’s wireless gaming headset priced at $179.99; I can tell you off the bat that these are the best price wireless gaming headset for your Xbox 360 & PS3 under $200. Why is that? What you have hear is a headset with an array of features, that function well and provide you as a gamer with a sublime audio gaming experience. The PLYR 1 encodes Dolby 7.1 into a rich and realistic audio environment, using only two drivers for uncompromised sonic fidelity.The PLYR 1 will decode a Dolby Digital 7.1 input from Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and Blu-Ray/DVD players, while also supporting Dolby PLIIx for non-digital inputs. PLYR 1’s 3 Position EQ, also allow for quickly switch between Bass Mode for beat heavy music and explosive action movies, Supreme Mode for custom tuned, full frequency response across any type of media, or Precision Mode to highlight the experiential mids and highs of footsteps and weapon reloads in FPS games. I must say the modes work exceptionally well and provides the users with options for an very expanded gaming experience. You also have volume controls for Voic and game at your finger tips on the right earcup for ease access.
As mentioned the PLYR1 is a wireless headset and this is achived through its homebase station, which acts as a transmitter for the PLYR1 and has a stand features, USB ports to charge up your headset , plus the option to hook up other audio devices with Toslink Optical Digital inputs for the highest-quality connection and pass through.
