Game developers go out of their way to make their latest titles as immersive as possible, but if you've ever felt that they could maybe go a little further than Logitech G has a solution for you in the form of its innovative new speaker system.

Strong audio and visual design can work together to absorb you into a game's world, and the new G560 LIGHTSYNC PC Gaming Speakers makes them work harder by bringing dazzling RGB lighting effects to the party.

It's the first speaker system that uses sounds and lights driven by games to ramp up the immersion factor. With Logitech G's own LIGHTSYNC technology—which you might have seen in action on Logitech G's illuminated keyboards and mice—the G560's desktop speakers boasts four independent lighting zones: two in the rear that project ambient color onto your wall and two in the front that can provide visual information through color.

Logitech G has been working with top developers to bring your games to light with custom RGB lighting effects for plenty of popular games. Using Logitech G's LIGHTSYNC SDK, game creators have added immersion-enhancing effects to their titles, ensuring that already-spectacular moments take their visual impact to the next level with stunning bursts of animated color.

As soon as you've installed your G560 and Logitech Gaming Software it's ready to go with some of the hottest titles, with built-in lighting integration already available for must-have games such as Fortnite, Battlefield 1, Dota 2 and Grand Theft Auto V, with plenty more ready to go and loads more to follow soon. Even if your favorite game isn't specifically supported you can still boost its visual impact with the LIGHTSYNC screen sampler feature.

With Logitech Gaming Software you can quickly and easily set up any game to pump out beautiful lighting effects that sync to the action. With the LGS screen sampler you can choose any area of your monitor and assign it to one of the G560's four lighting zones. From there the G560 will track your display in real-time, and match speaker lighting to the colors on screen, resulting in a vivid front and back light show that complements the content vs. the display and helps immerse your entire room into the experience.

There's a simpler solution if that's too much trouble. You can instead opt for an audio visualizer that creates a rainbow effect of lights from front and back, which pulses to the rhythm of the sound and music. You can still customize this if you like. You can define your preferred color palette using Logitech Gaming Software, and create lighting profiles for each of your games so that they’re ready to go as soon as you load them up.

Beyond gaming, the G560 is just as capable of giving your music an amazing visual boost, delivering the same reactive rainbow displays that you can again customize with your favorite color schemes. And you'll be pleased to know that the G560's audio quality won't leave you feeling short-changed. After all, what's the point of glorious lighting effects if the music they're accompanying sounds second-rate?

The G560 fires out 240 Watts Peak (120 Watts RMS) of incredible audio power through a pair of satellite speakers equipped with lightweight, high-strength metallic drivers, backed up by a no-nonsense down-firing subwoofer. Working together they'll deliver top-notch sound right across the range, from throbbing bass through to crisp upper ranges, enabling you to hear every audio detail that the game and sound designers intended, with perfect clarity.

To add to the G560's immersive qualities, it also supports DTS:X Ultra surround sound, providing next-generation positional audio so that you can hear your gaming environment from every angle and also experience multi-channel music sources as they’re meant to be heard, with every channel of the mix taking its own position for that added realism boost.

The G560's easy to control and it's ready to connect to anything. For the full visual experience you can hook it up using a USB cable. Alternatively you can use a traditional 3.5mm connector or even connect up to two Bluetooth devices. And if you like to switch between various devices, it's simple to switch between up to four of them using Logitech Easy-Switch™ technology.

So, want to take your games and music to another audio-visual dimension? Logitech G’s new G560 LIGHTSYNC PC Gaming Speakers are available now, with free shipping included.
