Game Guys review - Skullcandy PLYR1 gaming headset

A little more than a year ago, audiophile headphones maker Skullcandy purchased Astro Gaming. Astro has long been considered the gold standard in gaming headsets and now the Skullcandy is getting in on the game.

Skullcandy's gaming headset lineup is meant to compliment, not compete, with the Astro line. Think of it as GM's Buick and Cadillac lines. If Astro Gaming were the Cadillac of gaming headsets, then the Skullcandy line is the Buick with its PLYR 1 model being the Enclave.

The story is too old to be commented.

I had a pair of Skullcandy headphones once; they fit poorly on my ears and it always distracted me from the audio quality. Haven't bought any since.

Sennheiser HD598s and a Modmic, no gaming headset comes close.
