Lights can enhance your experience when gaming and Logitech's got two new products that will take it to the next level.
First up, the Logitech G560 Lightsync PC Gaming Speaker is a 2.1 setup featuring two speakers and a subwoofer. It peaks at 240 Watts and is not only made for stereo but offers up 3D audio with DTS:X Ultra 1.0.
But the major feature for this set is the Lightsync technology. Each speaker has lights in the back that can be synchronized with your game so depending on the action on the screen, the lights can change to one of up to 16.8 million colors to make your gaming more immersive. It's similar to the Philips backlighting system.
The G560 is also versatile in its connection options. There are options to connect via USB, 3.5mm, and Bluetooth and you can switch between up to four connected devices and easily switch between them with Logitech's Easy-Switch.
You can order the G560 for $199 right now.
With the speakers, Logitech also announced a new gaming keyboard. The Logitech G513 is their newest gaming keyboard with Lightsync. There are two key options in tactile or linear Romer-G keys. Tactile is what the original Romer-G keys were while the linear ones offer a smoother keystroke experience.
Two color schemes are available. The Carbon version is basically black and there's a Silver option as well. The Silver option only has Romer-G Tactile keys.
The keys all light up and can be customized with animations as well. As with any Lightsync product, you can choose from 16.8 million color options.
It looks like a pretty nice gamer keyboard and it's available now for $149.99.
Logitech G Unveils New PC Gaming Speaker and Mechanical Keyboard with LIGHTSYNC
LIGHTSYNC is a New Technology That Enhances Gameplay with Immersive Light and Sound
NEWARK, Calif. & LAUSANNE, Switzerland — March 15, 2018 — Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), today announced two new additions to their family of high-performance gaming gear. The Logitech® G560 PC Gaming Speaker is the first dedicated gaming speaker system with advanced Logitech G LIGHTSYNC™, a technology that synchronizes both light and sounds to gameplay. Joining the speaker is the new Logitech® G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. The Logitech G513 also features LIGHTSYNC RGB, provides the choice of two Romer-G™ mechanical key switches and a premium palm rest for a comfortable experience. Logitech G continues to expand its range of high-performance gear that is purpose-built for the needs of gamers, and push innovation in RGB to new immersive levels.
"Our goal with these two products was to complement our G502, the world's best selling gaming mouse," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “With LIGHTSYNC technology we are able to add real intelligence to what RGB lighting can do - synchronizing audio and RGB lighting to on-screen gameplay. If you already own a G502, then the new G513 keyboard and G560 speakers with LIGHTSYNC are the perfect way to complete your desktop, and create a totally immersive solution.”
Most Immersive PC Gaming Speaker
Hear every detail as game designers intended with the first gaming speaker from Logitech G. The Logitech G560 provides 240 Watts Peak/120 Watts RMS power, which delivers amazing sound for music and PC games, and 3D audio with DTS:X® Ultra 1.0 for in-game positional audio. Together this improves accuracy, and heightens intensity and realism, giving gamers a more immersive and fun experience. The G560 speakers are built on Logitech's rich 25-year heritage in designing premium audio devices.
Powered by advanced LIGHTSYNC technology, the Logitech G560 synchronizes brilliant RGB lighting and powerful audio in real time to match on-screen gameplay action. Light and animation effects can be customized across approximately 16.8 million colors, with four lighting zones. The Logitech G560 features multiple connection options including USB, 3.5mm and Bluetooth. This combined with built-in Logitech Easy-Switch™ technology, enables you to switch seamlessly between any four connected devices such as a PC, smartphone and tablet, so you can listen to your favorite playlist off your phone while playing a PC game. LIGHTSYNC technology also works with video and music content allowing you to enjoy immersive light and sound beyond gaming.
LIGHTSYNC Powered Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The Logitech G513 takes Logitech’s award-winning design in keyboards to the next level with RGB lighting and LIGHTSYNC support. The keyboard offers the choice of two Logitech G exclusive Romer-G mechanical key switches, Romer-G Tactile and Romer-G Linear. The tactile version provides soft tactile feedback during actuation for gamers who prefer direct feedback, while the linear version gives you a smooth keystroke. All Romer G keys offer fast and quiet competition-grade performance, and bright sharp lighting, all in a key that is more reliable and durable than standard mechanical switches. The switches actuate up to 25 percent faster than the leading competitor at a distance of 1.5mm, combined with a low-force 45g actuation, to provide near-instant responsiveness.
The Logitech G513 features an anodized and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminum top case for a slim, premium design with rigid durability, an integrated USB extension passthrough port and an optional palm rest to deliver comfort during long sessions.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker and G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard are expected to be available at global retailers beginning April 2018 for suggested retail prices of $199.99 and $149.99, respectively.
