These headphones share a number of features, all things considered. You’ll find both harness Bluetooth 5.1 capabilities for up to 20 hours of battery life and feature a 60ms low latency game mode to ensure you can easily hear in-game footsteps. charge of these earbuds is starting to wane a bit, just 15 minutes of plugging in provides an extra five hours of use, thanks to QuickCharge technology. Likewise, both are IPX5 rated for sweat and water resistance, so you can use them for both training and gaming. Additionally, there are two microphones to pick up your voice for in-game communications with your teammates.

Be totally up front, I don’t know why both of these headphones exist. They’re almost identical in almost every way aside from the software and the logo on the front, and they offer many of the same features. I understand that ROCCAT is a subsidiary of Turtle Beach, but I really think the Syn Buds Air and Scout Air could have been launched as a single pair of headphones from either brand.
Overall, though, I think these headphones will finally give Razer a run for its money when it comes to true wireless gaming sound for on-the-go mobile setups, because our favorite Chroma brand has held the title for far too long. .
