SteelSeries and Gunnar Optiks team up for SteelSeries Desmo


So we know that SteelSeries is very serious about delivering quality gaming hardware to the masses with their collection of mice and keyboards in the past, but perhaps there is a new market for the hardware company to expand their business? I guess they figured out the niche market of gaming eyewear worth looking into, having worked with Gunnar Optiks to deliver the SteelSeries Desmo.

Yes sir, this particular range of eyewear was specially designed for competitive gamers not only to make them look good (I assure you, that is just a secondary byproduct of their objective), but will also help improve visual efficiency, endurance, and recovery during gaming sessions. You can opt from either one of two color options – Desmo Onyx or the limited edition Desmo Snow that sports a semi-rimless design.

These glasses were specially designed to minimize peripheral distractions, thanks to the semi-rimless form factor that delivers an exceedingly broad visual field that allows the user to completely focus on the screen. Of course, the sleek frame itself will comprise of flexible twin-rail temples that are merged with adjustable nose pads so that you end up with a lightweight, stable fit, letting you worry just about the game instead of how you look and whether your equipment is able to live up to the rigors and demands of your gaming sessions.

Not only that, the ultra-slim temples were created so in order for it to rest comfortably beneath a gaming headset. Users are said to be able to enjoy an immediate, noticeable visual advantage thanks to the i-AMP lens technology. Apparently, this optical lens innovation will comprise of specially formulated tint conditions which will shift the color spectrum to deliver superior contrast, detail and resolution, while the proprietary lens material ensures it remains optically pure, so that your eyes can enjoy the clearest image possible through the elimination of distortion, impurities and haze.

Don’t expect these performance peripherals to come cheap though – the SteelSeries Desmo Onyx will retail for $99.99/99.99, while the limited edition Desmo Snow goes for the same price, albeit being exclusively sold at only.
