Roccat Syn Pro Air review: Sound quality over comfort?

The Roccat Syn Pro Air is built to be comfortable with large, deep earcups and comfortable padding. It offers wireless freedom and plenty of battery life too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Use the detachable mic or don't. If you do you've got controls to adjust just how much of your own voice you hear which is good because those earcups are good. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Sound is key here and Roccat has built this headset with Superhuman Hearing options so you can hear enemy footsteps and gun sounds more easily. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The ear cups are deep and the memory foam padding is comfortable even for glasses wearers. But the material is scratchy and uncomfortable in our mind. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Like Roccat's lightweight mice, the Syn Pro Air is designed with a hidden honeycomb frame that lets the RGB shine through. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
That lighting includes AIMO intelligent lighting and adds nicely to the overall style. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This is a great sounding headset with plenty of audio options and sound customisation choices. It's not as comfortable as others we've tried though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
