Roccat Syn Max Air wireless headset review: An affordable charging dock for gamers

The Syn Max Air is loaded with RGB to fit the theme for Roccat, but a wireless headset with a charging dock is a new take for the gaming brand. There is a severe lack of options in this department for PC gamers, and this sleek headset promises a combination of luxury comfort and high-quality audio. Under the Turtle Beach umbrella, it should benefit from a range of audio enhancements to give it a healthy head start in the headset category.

Whether Roccat has found the right balance between affordability and cool tech is the big question, and I aimed to answer it with my Syn Max Air review. Their vibrant peripherals made a lasting impression on me in the past, so my hopes were high when this intriguing wireless headset was unveiled.

Roccat Syn Max Air: First impressions and setup

My first impressions of the Syn Max Air were great; the effort from Roccat to make a quality presentation was appreciated. Nothing stood out as fragile or flimsy, from the bendable microphone to the ultra-soft cushions surrounding the ear cups. The sleek aesthetics made me hopeful enough for this unique offering to put together a short unboxing video (opens in new tab) for our TikTok channel.
