Cyrus® Audio Announces the soundKey PC Gamer Edition, Unleashing Lossless Audio for Gaming Headsets Everywhere

Hi-Res Gaming Headphone DAC and Amp, Revolutionises PC Audio, Working with Wired PC Gaming Headsets

Cambridgeshire, England – May 10th, 2018 – Cyrus Audio, the UK’s leading premium audio manufacturer, announced today the soundKeyPC Gamers Edition, a high-resolution gaming headphone DAC (Digital Analogue Converter) and amp. Expected to be on sale beginning July 2018, the soundKey is designed to significantly upgrade the performance of any wired PC gaming headset, through the application of their decades of experience in high-end audio.

Many gamers wisely choose their headset with care, conscious of the winning edge crystal clear positional audio can make to their performance. Even the finest headset however, will be hamstrung by the limitations of on-board audio cards used on even premium desktop or laptop PCs.

The amount of electronic system ‘noise’ in a PC, especially of gaming specification, means that even those equipped with good quality audio-grade components (and most are not), can only achieve a sound output that is a fraction of its true potential. The award-winning soundKey from Cyrus plugs discreetly into the USB socket and mic input of the PC, automatically configuring itself and negating the need for software or drivers. Gamers simply plug their standard PC wired headset in to the 3.5mm output located on the soundKey with no further setup or maintenance required. soundKey bypasses the PC’s internal audio circuitry, relying on its own advanced technology to decode and process the in-game audio, resulting in a superlative gaming experience. soundKey is fully compatible with Hi-Res and lossless audio formats.

Launched in 2017, the original soundKey from Cyrus was an instant hit amongst global media, receiving a coveted 5-star rating from What Hi-Fi™ magazine, where it also won a What Hi-Fi 2017 Award for ‘Best DAC under £150’.

In addition, the soundKey can be used with a PC as well as a variety of other consoles and devices, instantly upgrading the audio output quality.

“Cyrus recognise that audio is a vital component of the gaming experience, well documented in providing a winning edge on a casual or professional stage. Game audio continues to advance at tremendous pace, with high-resolution and lossless audio doing for sound what 4K has done for vision. Until now, gamers have been bottlenecked by poor quality DAC’s used by PC manufactures, resulting in inferior audio no matter how good the quality of the headset,” said Simon Freethy, Managing Director of Cyrus Audio. “We’re thrilled to offer a solution which builds upon our proud audio heritage and utilises our award-winning technology for a gaming audience. The PC Gamer Edition of our soundKey means that gamers can radically transform the quality of their existing headset, for a cost-effective investment which we believe will change the way players hear their games for forever.”

The soundKey PC Gamers Edition will be available from leading retails at an SRP of: £99.99/ €129.99 / $149.99.
