LogitechG G560 LIGHTSYNC PC Gaming Speakers Launch Trailer

Gamers will be able to program the Logitech G560 gaming speakers through Logitech's upgraded LIGHTSYNC software.

The Logitech G513 is also available starting today for $149 (about £110, AU$190). The Logitech G560 RGB Speakers are something that every gamer wants to have in order to complete that dream setup.

"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. All the same stuff that applies to the keyboards and mice applies here, too-lighting that is supposed to change dynamically with gameplay, custom profiles abd pre-built profiles for popular games, and synchronization with other Lightsync hardware. The keyboard has lights under the keys as usual, but the G560 speakers will actually project their light onto a surface behind your workstation. With 240 Watts of peak power and including DTS:X Positional 3D Audio technology, the Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker will match your on-screen action in real-time.

Aside from the lighting, the Logitech G560s are a 2.1 set of speakers that Logitech rates for up to 120 W RMS of total power-more than enough to rock your socks off from close range. Thanks to a new piece of Lightsync technology, the speakers can also be used to blast a particular shade of color to match in-game explosions, the direction of approaching enemies, where you're taking damage or receiving healing, and many more effects. 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. The lighting effects also work with video and music content.

Yes, these are speakers and a keyboard with RGB LED lighting. Two versions of the keyboard are offered with both using Romer-G mechanical switches. Romer-G switches are intended for gamers, and as a result they have an unusually-short 1.5-mm throw, not unlike Cherry'x MX Speed series of mechanical switches. Romer-G is mechanical key switches are 25% faster than standard mechanical switches and feature less noise. Logitech touts that It features an "anodized and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminum top case for a slim, premium design with rigid durability". In fact it looks like Logitech plans on capitalizing on that trend as they have unveiled a new set of gaming speakers in the form of the Logitech G560. It will come in two colour options - Carbon and Silver. For more information, please visit our website, our blog, or connect with us @LogitechG.
