Turtle Beach SCOUT AIR and ROCCAT SYN Buds Air
Visually and technically, the SCOUT AIR and ROCCAT SYN Buds Air hardly differ from each other. For acoustics, both Bluetooth earbuds rely on 6 mm drivers with neodymium magnets that cover the usual frequency range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
Both earbuds come in a black color scheme and feature the manufacturer’s logo on the charging eagle and on the outside of the drivers. The earbuds were developed primarily for mobile console and computer gamers.
20 hours of battery life and gaming mode
Compatible with iOS, Android, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices such as Nintendo Switch, Windows PCs, and Mac, both devices feature a dedicated gaming mode that reduces latency to 60 ms (whereas in normal mode it’s 100 milliseconds). Wirelessly, they both radio with Bluetooth version 5.1
The Earbuds also offer a total battery life of 20 hours and are IPX4 sweat and water resistant, so listening to music or podcasts while in between workouts is no problem.
The earphones themselves last for five hours, and another 15 hours are possible via the charging case. The charging case has a battery indicator and can charge the Earbuds via USB-C in just 15 minutes for five hours of battery life.

The Earbuds are operated with touch controls, and the controls can also be customized. Adjusting the equalizer, activating game mode and controlling the batteries is possible via Turtle Beach’s Audio Hub app for the Scout Air and via ROCCAT’s SYN Buds Air app.
