If you’re looking for a lightweight, comfy gaming headset, the Roccat Syn Pro Air Wireless is a great option, well worth the price. They have a lot of great color customization features and a well-rounded sound profile. However, they have poor noise cancellation qualities.
Light, durable, and comfy, the Roccat Syn Pro Air Wireless headphones are good for gamers. They have 23.3 hours of continuous playback, which is great battery life. Sound-wise, the profile is neutral, with low basses and high trebles that are weak or too harsh, and the soundstage is also very passive.
There’s a companion app for EQ customization, which is great for fine-tuning the sound. However, the software has compatibility issues with other Roccat devices. The headset’s earcups have customizable neon lighting, which is alterable in the companion app. Buildwise, the headphones have quality pads and smooth sliding hinges but lack an IP rating for water resistance.
However, the headphones lack any active noise cancellation feature, and they do a poor job of insulating your ears from outside noises.

The boom mic on the ROCCAT Elo 7.1 Air has a much better recording quality than that of the newer ROCCAT Syn Pro Air. The Elo 7.1 also has channel mixing controls for balancing the in-game sound against the chat sound, but such controls are unavailable on the Syn Pro. However, the Syn Pro offers mic monitoring controls, unlike the Elo 7.1. It also has a better 23.3-hour battery life than the 16-hour runtime of the Elo 7.1.
