Acer Introduces Galea and Cestus Gaming Peripherals

Acer made several announcements at IFA Berlin 2017, including the addition of new peripherals to their Predator gaming lineup. While Acer is known to announce gaming laptops and monitors often, the new announcement of peripherals shows the company’s dedication to offering a more complete gaming experience. The two announcements include the Galea high-end gaming headset and the Cestus 500 Gaming mouse.

Acer Predator Galea 500 Gaming Headset

The Galea Gaming headset is unlike most other headsets in the market. Specifically because it is for a high-end user with the price to reflect it. The Galea 500 uses a USB connector since it has a built-in 3D sound card. The headset has 3D spatial-awareness that changes depending on the user’s movement. Acer calls this technology TrueHarmony 3D Soundscape.

Although, I don’t know any gamer who loves to move around while gaming, this headset apparently is for those very particular about it. Gamers can turn towards the sound and it will change accordingly. This makes it the most nuanced 3D gaming headset ever if true.  The Galea 500 also comes with EQ presets so it is easy to adjust whether the user wants to watch a movie or play a game.

Acer Predator Cestus 500 Gaming Mouse

The Cestus 500 gaming mouse will have a unique new adjustable resistance feature. Users can alternate between two resistance levels on the switches depending on what game they are playing. It sounds very gimmicky, but it can be useful for users who cannot trust themselves with breaking bad habits while gaming. Less resistance while playing a first-person shooter could come in handy while adding resistance while playing a real-time strategy game can be useful.

Like most expensive mice these days, the Cestus 500 also comes with RGB LED lighting. In fact, it has 8-color patterns. The Cestus 500 also has 5 on-board profiles, and 8 programmable buttons for customization.

Pricing and Availability

The Predator Galea 500 headset will cost roughly €299.99 when it comes out, which is quite pricey even for a high-end gaming headset. The Cestus 500 gaming mouse on the other hand will retail for €89.99. Both will be available in stores by November 2017.
