Cyrus Gaming soundKey

Reading Time: 3 minutes

My next gaming peripheral Rapid Review is of the Cyrus gaming soundkey.  The £99.99 DAC is the first gaming orientated audio product that Cyrus has released.  Having never used an external DAC before, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Read on for my thoughts on this magical USB dongle.

Introduction

I’ve had the privilege of using some pretty amazing gaming headsets recently, and I’ve been super impressed with the sound quality they’ve delivered. Therefore, I was blown away by the upgrade in sound quality that this product produced.  The Cyrus soundKey really does improve the quality of the audio in games, music and videos.

You can use the Cyrus gaming soundKey with your PC, Mac or mobile device.

The soundKey is really simple to set-up.

Ease of use

I was really impressed with how easy the soundKey was to use.  It literally is a plug and play device.  As simple as that.  

Super sound!

When used with analogue gaming headsets connected via a 3.5mm audio jack, the improvement in sound quality within the gaming environment is impressive. Gamers will experience enhanced clarity of footsteps, reloads and other audio cues. When used for listening to music services, soundKey is nothing short of remarkable.

The soundkey is powered by the USB port, therefore, you don’t need to worry about charging it.

In the box you get the soundKey, and the cables you need to connect it to a standard 3.5mm audio jack.  It also comes with a nice case to carry it in. 

Conclusion

For me, at £99.99, this product falls into the category of want, not need.  However, what I will say is that once you’ve tried it, you’re not going to want to be without it.  I was really impressed with the ease of use, and the upgrade in audio quality that this product gave.
