Low Latency Gaming Earbuds Use 2.4 Ghz Wireless Dongle
for the Ultimate In-Gaming VR Experience
BELLEVUE, Wash., October 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — soundcore, Anker Innovations’ premium audio brand, today announced the VR P10 Gaming Earbuds, the first audio product authorized for usage in Meta Quest 2.
“We are excited that the VR P10 will be the first audio product to receive the ‘Made For Meta’ endorsement,” said Steven Yang, founder and CEO of Anker Innovations. “Our new low-latency earbuds will be the perfect gaming accessory for Meta Quest 2 users.”
Built for Gaming and Virtual Reality
The VR P10 was truly designed for video game fans. The VR P10 can pair to an included USB-C dongle that operates using a 2.4 Ghz wireless connection with compatibility with the LC3 codec and when not in use, the wireless dongle can easily be stored inside the charging case.
The USB-C dongle features soundcore’s LightningSync™ wireless technology that provides a low-latency connection between the device and earbuds, reducing audio latency to 30ms, perfect for avid gamers. Using the wireless dongle ensures that audio cues align with what’s on a user’s Meta Quest 2 VR headsets. When playing first person shooter (FPS) games or reaction-type games, it is imperative that audio cues align with video as misaligned audio can be quite distracting to users.
The VR P10 offers the ability to simultaneously connect to multiple devices. Users can connect their mobile device for calls or music using the Bluetooth connection while also being connected to a Meta Quest 2 using the USB-C wireless dongle to hear in-game audio.
The VR P10 allows users to connect up to four wireless dongles simultaneously in different devices. For example, a user can plug in one dongle in their Quest 2 VR headset, another one in a PlayStation 5®a third dongle in a Valve® Steam Deck® and fourth wireless dongle in a gaming PC. This prevents the need to physically switch a single dongle between devices. Users can toggle which dongle is active using the soundcore app (Android™ / Apple® iOS).
The VR P10 offers high quality sound, featuring an 11mm dynamic driver with BassUp™ technology for added punch to the lower frequencies. The VR P10 also uses Bluetooth 5.2 to connect to mobile devices and listen to music or movies.
The earbuds offer up to 6 hours of playtime and a total of 24 hours with the charging case. Additionally for convenience, the USB-C dongle also allows for pass-through charging with a
USB-C port on the outside. A USB-C power cable can be plugged in during an extended gaming session and simultaneously recharge a Meta Quest 2 VR headsets.
The VR P10 features 4 built-in microphones with beamforming to reduce background noise and amplify the user’s voice while on a phone call.
