London, 15th October 2019: Puro Sound Labs, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium and volume limiting headphones, is now introducing the PuroGamer headphones into the UK market. The latest headphones that are designed specifically for gaming, boast a slick design, high quality audio through both sound and an omnidirectional, noise cancelling microphone. In keeping with the rest of the Puro Sound Labs range, the headphones are also volume limited to 85 dB ensure no damage to gamers’ hearing health whilst they are playing for long periods of time. The PuroGamer headphones are available to buy from Amazon for £69.99.

 

Whilst safety and hearing health is of prime concern, the PuroGamer certainly do not compromise on sound quality. Featuring a premium stereo sound offering virtual surround sound, the headphones allow all gamers to truly immerse themselves into the world of their games and experience them the way they were intended. Whether Fortnite is the game of choice or a FIFA match is preferred, the 50mm graphene driver and response equaliser provide a balanced and safe sound so gamers can fully enjoy the experience without causing damage to their ears. Additionally, the PuroGamer headphones have 75% ambient noise isolation at 1kHz to allow gamers to shut out the rest of the world whilst they play.

With gamers using headphones more and more and gaming becoming an increasingly popular past time and even a profession to some, noise-induced hearing loss is a growing concern. The PuroGamer headphones aim to ease that concern without affecting the game playing experience as in general play, most sound effects in games do not need to go above 85 decibels. The PuroGamer headphones will take effect when an explosion goes off directly behind the player or a car crashes for example to ensure the hearing drums do not get damaged - something gamers will be thankful for in later life.

The PuroGamer headphones also feature the Puro Balanced Frequency Response Audio Curve, a frequency response curve that matches the natural sound reproduced in a perfectly tuned listening room. The headphones are tuned specifically to sound great at lower listening levels so even when the volume is lower, the sound and experience whilst gaming will not be compromised. The sound effects and game dialogue can be heard clearly against the full spectrum of audio from deep bass to high frequencies.

Using headphones and being fully immersed in the game can often include using a microphone to talk to friends in a multiplayer tournament or challenge. The PuroGamer have an omnidirectional Noise Cancelling Boom Microphone for crystal-clear conversations that will filter out ambient sounds meaning that it is easy to talk to fellow players or opponents with real clarity.

 

Featuring an industrial design, the PuroGamer headphones are made with a durable aluminium construction to not only look good whilst playing but also stand the test of time. The combined use of padded protein leather removable ear cups and headband with the stainless-steel build and zinc alloy buckle of the headphones make the PuroGamer a stylish gaming accessory for any user. The LED lighting on the ear cup also ensure that the headphones stand out while playing when plugged into the usb connection. The lightweight design provides comfort for extended use for the occasions when the hours are flying by on the latest game release.

Wired and featuring a multi-cable connection, the headphones are compatible with PC, Xbox, PlayStation 4 and mobile devices so they can be used by anyone no matter the preferred console. 

Puro Sound Lab’s PuroGamer headphones will be available from Amazon with a RRP of £69.99.
