Panasonic’s wearable gaming speaker will actually blow your thoughts, if I’m seeing this picture proper


Panasonic is aware of that players wish to be blown away. However perhaps not fairly this actually?

That appears just a little painful. So does this:

I’m unsure I’d need a dragon respiration fireplace immediately into my ear?
Picture: Panasonic

However what do you count on from a product referred to as the SoundSlayer? It had higher slay or my a refund.

And since players like acronyms, it is best to know that the SoundSlayer WIGSS (Wearable Immersive Gaming Speaker System) will include True MAGESS (Majestic Augmented Gaming Setting Sound System) when it arrives this October for $199.99. Wigs and mages? Not fairly, as a result of Panasonic snuck in that further “S”!

Panasonic guarantees its 4 full-range audio system will create a ”360-degree pocket of sound across the head” so gamers “really feel enveloped by sound in all instructions,” and it comes with a pair of built-in noise-canceling microphones for communication. It’s additionally received a mode tuned for Closing Fantasy XIV On-line, Panasonic says.

In all seriousness, this is likely to be a terrific thought — many players don’t have true rear audio system for high quality encompass sound, choosing the digital encompass you may get from headphones or a soundbar as a substitute. We’d should attempt it to make certain. However know that the “W” in “WIGSS” doesn’t stand for Wi-fi: that is one neckband speaker you’ll be plugging into your console and PC with a bodily USB-A cable and / or audio cable.

If the design reminds you of Bizarre Sony, you’re half-right: Sony launched its personal (wi-fi) wearable speaker system in 2018 and introduced it to the US in 2019. It prices the identical worth however solely has two audio system for digital encompass, with a quoted seven hours of battery life. We additionally loved Bose’s neckband speaker, although it is available in at $300.
