Cyrus has today announced their first venture into the world of gaming, with a PC Gamers Edition soundKey.
The high resolution gaming headphone DAC (Digital Analogue Converter) and amp is expected to be ready for a July 2018 launch date.
“Cyrus recognise that audio is a vital component of the gaming experience, well documented in providing a winning edge on a casual or professional stage. Game audio continues to advance at tremendous pace, with high-resolution and lossless audio doing for sound what 4K has done for vision. Until now, gamers have been bottlenecked by poor quality DAC’s used by PC manufactures, resulting in inferior audio no matter how good the quality of the headset,” said Simon Freethy, Managing Director of Cyrus Audio.
Launched in 2017, the original soundKey from Cyrus was an instant hit amongst global media, receiving a coveted 5-star rating and Award for ‘Best DAC under £150’ from What Hi-Fi magazine.
Cyrus will surely be expecting a tough audience in the gaming sector. They seem well aware that audio quality can give an edge in competitive online multiplayers and also enhance gaming experiences. But with a solid foundation to build from, they also certainly seem well prepared and confident that they can improve where some headsets may falter.
Cyrus Audio’s Simon Freethy continued; “We’re thrilled to offer a solution which builds upon our proud audio heritage and utilises our award-winning technology for a gaming audience. The PC Gamer Edition of our soundKey means that gamers can radically transform the quality of their existing headset, for a cost-effective investment which we believe will change the way players hear their games forever.”
The soundKey PC Gamers Edition will be available from leading retailers at an SRP of: £99.99/ €129.99 / $149.99.
