PC gamers looking to max out their setup with maximum performance and impressive RGB lighting need look no further than the all-new Vulcan II Max keyboard and Syn Max Air headset from ROCCAT. ROCCAT’s award-winning Vulcan design has wowed fans since the line debuted, and the stunning Vulcan II Max redefines the category. Featuring ROCCAT’s ridiculously fast TITAN II Optical Switches and the world’s first Dual LED Smart Keys, the Vulcan II Max combines performance and functionality with a look all its own and is sure to be the crown jewel of any desktop gaming setup.
Also unveiled today is ROCCAT’s flagship Syn Max Air – a PC gaming headset that sits atop the brand’s headset line as its new premium wireless offering. The Syn Max Air leverages decades of award-winning audio engineering experience from Turtle Beach, delivering immersive Waves 3D surround sound through powerful 50 mm Nanoclear speakers, and exclusive features like Superhuman Hearing for a competitive advantage. With translucent earcups that showcase RGB lighting like no other, the Syn Max Air melds ROCCAT’s signature style with wireless freedom and a rapid-charge docking station.
Roccat Vulcan II Max Keyboard
The Vulcan II Max PC gaming keyboard is sure to grab attention with its sleek lines, aluminium plate, and brilliantly lit translucent palm rest. The Vulcan II Max features ROCCAT’s exclusive TITAN II Optical-Mechanical Switches which have a smooth mechanical feel, hyper-fast actuation, and incredible durability with a 100 million click life cycle – offering a competitive edge game after game. Beyond ridiculously fast actuation speed and performance, ROCCAT’s new TITAN II switches are compatible with many third-party cross-shaped mount keycaps to further customize their look.
ROCCAT’s Vulcan II Max is also the world’s second gaming keyboard to debut Dual-LED Smart Keys, only preceded by its Vulcan II Mini sibling. The Vulcan II Max features 24 multi-function smart keys with a dedicated second LED to indicate when secondary functions are active. Additionally, PC gamers can use ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+] button duplicator technology to unlock a secondary function, which can be programmed into near-limitless options. With 4 MB of onboard storage, PC gamers can take their RGB lighting show and settings on the road by saving up to four profiles of custom lighting, key reassignment and more, directly on the Vulcan II Max. Additional fan-favourite Vulcan elements also return, such as the anodized aluminium plate for durable structural integrity, and dedicated media controls. The all-new soft, translucent palm rest sets the stage for ROCCAT’s AIMO lighting technology. AIMO produces vibrant RGB lighting displays right out of the box and syncs with other compatible AIMO-enabled products for an immersive lighting display.
For the ultimate RGB lighting setup, ROCCAT fans can combine the Vulcan II Max keyboard with ROCCAT’s top-rated Kone XP Air wireless mouse, and all-new Syn Max Air wireless head. All three are AIMO-compatible and will put on an alluring RGB lighting experience synchronized across all three peripherals.
Roccat Syn Max Air
ROCCAT’s Syn Max Air headset delivers a premium wireless 3D audio experience perfect for gamers and streamers who love high-quality game audio and unique RGB-infused style. The Syn Max Air’s premium sound is engineered by gaming headset maker Turtle Beach and includes the best-selling brand’s exclusive, patented technologies and features.
Immersive Waves 3D audio is delivered through the Syn Max Air’s large and powerful 50mm Nanoclear speakers, and crystal-clear chat comes through the Syn Max Air’s unique TruSpeak noise-cancelling microphone – the only one in its class offering noise-cancellation, flip-to-mute functionality, or the option to be completely removed which is great for streamers. The Syn Max Air includes a variety of audio presets, as well as Turtle Beach’s exclusive and patented Superhuman Hearing sound setting which boosts critical in-game sounds for a competitive advantage. For added comfort, the Syn Max Air features Turtle Beach’s exclusive ProSpecs glasses-friendly and cooling gel-infused memory foam ear cushions.
Engineered to provide gamers with every possible convenience, the Syn Max Air adds an RGB rapid-charge docking station where just 15-minutes of charge provides three hours of play, plus premium aluminium yokes for added durability, Bluetooth 5.1 and dual-wireless functionality for connecting to more devices, and up to 16-hours of battery life.
ROCCAT’s signature sleek, RGB-inspired design stands out on the Syn Max Air. Up to 16.8 million colours of RGB lighting are showcased on both the headset’s translucent Bionic Shell earcups and the docking station, and the lighting can be synchronized with other AIMO-enabled devices using ROCCAT’s robust Swarm software suite. ROCCAT’s Stellar Wireless technology manages the Syn Max Air’s signal strength and battery consumption for optimal performance, while dual-wireless connectivity means PC gamers can also chat on Discord, take calls, and listen to music via Bluetooth while gaming.
The Syn Max Air also includes intuitive on-ear audio controls for easy sound adjustment on the fly that can be customized using the included Swarm software. The Syn Max Air is a robust yet lightweight wireless PC gaming headset weighing in at 326g. The earcups also fold flat when it’s time for a break.
