Thanks to this long-standing partnership, the Lake Forest, CA-based lifestyle eyewear giant has been able to rope in ROCCAT to jointly develop a groundbreaking gaming eyewear collection that will give a competitive edge to gamers of all skill levels. The Oakley x ROCCAT Collection is compatible with ROCCAT’s latest PC gaming headsets such as Syn Pro Air and Elo series.

These wireless gaming headsets are equipped with Turtle Beach’s patented ProSpecs technology that enables gamers to achieve the best of vision and performance on the digital battlefield. The eyewear is furnished with the Oakley Metalink RX frames that comprise NanO-Matter material. This makes it 30% lighter than traditional frames with greater strength and durability.

The frames come in a grey and white color combination and feature ROCCAT’s iconic logo on the temple. Further, Oakley’s Authentic Prescription lenses coupled with its Prizm Gaming Lens Technology improve color contrast and filter blue light for a clarified vision. This facilitates users to achieve next-gen performance benefits for digital gaming by reducing eye strain and fatigue.

The glasses also come with a custom ROCCAT logo microbag. The Oakley x ROCCAT Collection glasses are currently available on the companies’ websites. Driven by such robust characteristics, the latest move is likely to create a win-win situation for both entities by advancing Oakley’s leading eyewear innovations and ROCCAT’s superior headset technology, in turn, boosting the overall gaming performance.
