Logitech G560 Speakers And G513 Mechanical Keyboard Adopt Lightsync RGB Tech

Share

And here's the "Silver" finish.

Logitech recently has announced two new additions to the Logitech G family of gaming-oriented peripherals that also marked the debut of the company's new Lightsync feature. Logitech says you can assign the speakers' four lighting zones to any area in your monitor so that the colors are in sync, or simply have the lights react to music being played. Logitech has upgraded from the single-color LED backlights of the previous version to Lightsync-enabled RGB lighting, and improved the palm rest with a more comfortable material. Logitech is notably not using the leading switch manufactuer, Cherry MX. The Tactile version gives discernible actuation for gamers who prefer direct feedback, whereas the linear version allows for a smoother keystroke. LIGHTSYNC intelligent RGB is Logitech's answer for synchronising RGB lighting with video games on a PC. Lightsync offers presets for certain popular games like Fortnight.

Connectivity is USB 2.0. Of course, there's a visualizer mode but, thanks to those four aforementioned lighting zones, you can have each set of LEDs key off the bass, lows, mids and highs individually. Like most companies that make keyboards like this, Logitech offers Windows software for customizing macros and lighting profiles, among other things. It will come in two colour options - Carbon and Silver.

The Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker and G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard are expected to be available at global retailers beginning April 2018 for suggested retail prices of $199.99 and $149.99, respectively.

The manufacturer has provided a list of developers now utilizing the Lightsync tech. "With LIGHTSYNC technology we are able to add real intelligence to what RGB lighting can do - synchronising audio and RGB lighting to on-screen gameplay". You might not need the Logitech G560 RGB Speakers, but you do want them.

The speakers in this 2.1-channel system are small, but Logitech claims the output is 240 watts peak and 140 watts average. It'll also support DTS X Ultra surround sound for precise positional audio in games and multi-dimensional music experiences. Logitech G provides gamers of all levels with industry-leading keyboards, mice, headsets, mousepads and simulation products such as wheels and flight sticks - made possible through innovative design, advanced technologies and a deep passion for gaming.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Logitech and take a look at their new Logitech G560 gaming speakers yesterday.
