Logitech G Unveils New PC Gaming Speaker and Mechanical Keyboard With LIGHTSYNC

The first new products to introduce LIGHTSYNC will be the Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and the Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker. 240 Watts Peak (120 Watts RMS) power feeds the down-firing subwoofer and two satellite speakers for clear, pure sound. It'll also support DTS X Ultra surround sound for precise positional audio in games and multi-dimensional music experiences.

Users can hook up the G560 in traditional 3.5mm or USB.

The Logitech G560 gaming speakers will be shipping April 2018 pre-orders are open now with a price point of $199.99USD.

Logitech includes 12 additional keycaps and a puller to swap out keys that are commonly used for gaming. "With LIGHTSYNC technology we are able to add real intelligence to what RGB lighting can do - synchronizing audio and RGB lighting to on-screen gameplay". LIGHTSYNC RGB immerses you into the action with automatic, game-driven lighting effects that react to many popular games. As the names imply, the tactile version allows you to feel the actuation point, whereas the linear switch offers a smoother keystroke without any tactile feedback. Buyers can chose between the Romer-G Tactile and the Romer-G Linear keyboard switches. Logitech is the latest company to offer a product in this vein with its Lightsync technology found on the new G560 speakers and G513 mechanical keyboard. The keyboard also features onboard memory to store your per-key RGB lighting profiles. The keyboard features an anodized and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminum top case for a slim and premium design that includes rigid durability. This can also be customized in the Logitech Gaming Software and players can pull colors and schemes directly from what is on their screen.

Iran warned it would resume enriching uranium if the U.S. pulled out of the deal and reimposed severe sanctions. United States sanctions will resume unless Mr Trump issues fresh waivers to suspend them on May 12.

The new G560's claim to fame is that it comes with the Lightsync RGB tech, which is unusual for speakers.

We're not sure there's this trend of gaming peripherals and accessories sporting RGB lighting, but that certainly seems to be the way things are done. For those who want to connect wirelessly, the speaker also has Bluetooth features. The keyboard is available in two colors, Carbon which is available worldwide and Silver (Romer-G Tactile only), available in select markets.

What makes the G560 different from the majority of the competition is that as you can see in the image above, the speakers actually come with RGB lighting built into them.

But Logitech is also working with some clever stuff on the software side to take advantage of the area lighting the speakers provide.
