Skullcandy PLYR 1 Gaming Headset

 

The Skullcandy PLYR 1 gaming headset combines wireless performance, simulated surround sound, and flexible connectivity into a single attractive package.

Excellent sound quality. Strong bass. Optical audio passthrough. Charging base doubles as a stand for the headset when not in use

Can't offer true surround sound. Headset can feel slightly cheap compared to more high-end gaming headsets

You can't get true surround sound in headphones. This makes designing gaming headsets tricky, when directionality can offer an edge. Fortunately, while true surround sound isn't possible in a headset, you can get a passable facsimile with stereo...

Great sound and wireless

 

I can't figure out if the headset decodes a proper 7.1 Dolby Digital signal when Dolby decoding is active, or if just applies Dolby Headphone to a downmixed signal. I'm starting to suspect the latter, although the surround sound still works fairly well.

I wish there were music player buttons on the headset that would let me skip music tracks

eh well the charger chord is short but it's such a common chord you probably have a longer one just lying around, anyways I get about 8-10 hours from the battery so chord length is irrelevant

I played a few rounds of Team Fortress 2 with the PLYR 1, and it performed admirably. While the surround sound effect wasn’t “genuine,” it provided the slightest illusion that the Heavy firing his mini-gun behind me was actually behind me, thanks to a...
