Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, today announced two new additions to their family of high-performance gaming gear. The Logitech G560 PC Gaming Speaker is the first dedicated gaming speaker system with advanced Logitech G LIGHTSYNC, a technology that synchronizes both light and sounds to gameplay. Joining the speaker is the new Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. The Logitech G513 also features LIGHTSYNC RGB, provides the choice of two Romer-G mechanical key switches and a premium palm rest for a comfortable experience. Logitech G continues to expand its range of high-performance gear that is purpose-built for the needs of gamers, and push innovation in RGB to new immersive levels.

"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."



Most Immersive PC Gaming Speaker
Hear every detail as game designers intended with the first gaming speaker from Logitech G. 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. The G560 speakers are built on Logitech's rich 25-year heritage in designing premium audio devices.

Powered by advanced LIGHTSYNC technology, 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.

LIGHTSYNC Powered Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The Logitech G513 takes Logitech's award-winning design in keyboards to the next level with 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 percent 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.

Pricing and Availability
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.

Why is it that all recent PC speakers from Logitech looks like cheap crap? They used to make reasonably decent speakers, but this, I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, especially at $200.

The new gaming ones look a bit too "childish" imho. But then again, the entire market seems to be going down that route...
But yeah, I'm going to be sad when my G500s dies, as their scroll wheel is unbeatable.

2 variants of keys: one "smooth" and the other "soft", please be more specific mr. Logitech.

And this Lighthing stuff what does it give in practical terms. Willl it be like the never emerging new DasKeyboard? Assign "events" to RGB?

Yeah I was genuinely shocked by the size of the Z906s sub it’s almost as big as my PSB sub for my home theatre and yeah it’s heavy...

$200 for Speakers inferior to the $99 Logitech Z623, but priced $100 higher thanks to RGB. Thanks Logitech, it's silly pricing like this that makes people hate RGB.

I too was shocked when i first saw how big the sub was on the Z5500. when i walk around the shops and see all these home entertainment setups with a sub about half the size of mine, I laugh.

Gaming on 5.1 was such an experience back in the day, specially with EAX and all that. These days it doesnt really seem to matter if youre in 5.1 or not as most people use headphones to game. I still love my z5500s for movies though. I swapped out all the satellite speakers for JBL Control One's and its been decent. Setup will still have the whole house shaking when watching a movie.

Yeah I’m playing ED most of the time and it’s fantastic in 5.1. I moved recently so I have to be bit more considerate so I’ve recently played it with headphones and it’s just not the same. ED just nails audio on all fronts.

That keyboard fares no better either, CMs MK750 at similar price point offers better solution and key choices.
Most of ISO (if not all) layouts for the MK750 are region bound, for example, UK-ISO layout only has Brown switches, IT-ISO layout only has red, basically you need to choose either to give up layout or switch preference.
This hasn't got cherry, but it has 2 different switches for all countries, which is clearly better in my eye.

I have seen retailers in India selling both Red and Brown variations of MK750 with US layout. I am not sure of European layouts as we only use US layout in India with Rupee symbol replacing dollar symbol through small programs for keyboards.

That's possible because US layout is used in many countries so it has many more potential customers.
