Skullcandy's new line of gaming headsets, which includes the SLYR, PLYR1, and PLYR2, offers options for gamers looking for a better audio experience without floor-shaking sound.

The audio company designed these headsets in conjunction with Astro Gaming, the premium headset maker that Skullcandy acquired last year.

The SLYR, a wired stereo headset, is available now for $79.99. The PLYR2 is set for release this holiday season; the stereo unit is equipped with 2.4GHz wireless technology and will sell for $129.99. The top-of-the-line PLYR1, a 2.4GHz wireless headset that offers Dolby 7.1 surround sound, won't be available until early 2013 for $179.99. All the devices are compatible with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U, as well as "most smartphones, tablets, and MP3 players," according to Skullcandy.
