Logitech introduced a pair of new devices from the company’s popular Logitech G line, offering a stylish set of PC speakers and a new mechanical keyboard option. The Logitech G line is the company’s gaming lineup, and it’s become one of the top-tier options for builders looking to outfit their new rigs with fitting accessories. The two devices that were announced today are the Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker, the company’s first dedicated gaming speaker system with advanced Logitech G LIGHTSYNC, and the new Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.
Both the Logitech G560 speaker set, and the Logitech G513 feature LIGHTSYNC RGB, which can sync with games and programs to create the perfect lighting effects and moods. The G513 keyboard also provides the choice of two Romer-G mechanical key switches, and a premium palm rest for a comfortable experience.
“Our goal with these two products was to complement our G502, the world’s best selling gaming mouse,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “With LIGHTSYNC technology we are able to add real intelligence to what RGB lighting can do – synchronizing audio and RGB lighting to on-screen gameplay. If you already own a G502, then the new G513 keyboard and G560 speakers with LIGHTSYNC are the perfect way to complete your desktop, and create a totally immersive solution.”
The Logitech G560 provides 240 Watts Peak/120 Watts RMS power, which delivers amazing sound for music and PC games, and 3D audio with DTS:X Ultra 1.0 for in-game positional audio. Together this improves accuracy, and heightens intensity and realism, giving gamers a more immersive and fun experience. Powered by the advanced LIGHTSYNC technology that we mentioned earlier, the Logitech G560 synchronizes brilliant RGB lighting and powerful audio in real time to match on-screen gameplay action. Light and animation effects can be customized across approximately 16.8 million colors, with four lighting zones. The Logitech G560 features multiple connection options including USB, 3.5mm and Bluetooth. This combined with built-in Logitech Easy-Switch technology, enables you to switch seamlessly between any four connected devices such as a PC, smartphone and tablet, so you can listen to your favorite playlist off your phone while playing a PC game. LIGHTSYNC technology also works with video and music content allowing you to enjoy immersive light and sound beyond gaming.
Logitech already has a substantial lineup of mechanical keyboards, but the Logitech G513 keyboard builds on the company’s award-winning design and adds RGB lighting and LIGHTSYNC support. The keyboard offers the choice of two Logitech G exclusive Romer-G mechanical key switches, Romer-G Tactile and Romer-G Linear. The tactile version provides soft tactile feedback during actuation for gamers who prefer direct feedback, while the linear version gives you a smooth keystroke. All Romer G keys offer fast and quiet competition-grade performance, and bright sharp lighting, all in a key that is more reliable and durable than standard mechanical switches. The switches actuate up to 25% faster than the leading competitor at a distance of 1.5mm, combined with a low-force 45g actuation, to provide near-instant responsiveness.
The Logitech G513 features an anodized and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminum top case for a slim, premium design with rigid durability, an integrated USB extension passthrough port and an optional palm rest to deliver comfort during long sessions.
