I was thoroughly impressed with the Plantronics GameCom 780 with my Hands-on at CES 2012 and after having spent about close to two weeks with the headset; Again all I am going to say is WOW!!!!. Plantronics truly know how to but sound and audio to their headset, starting with design , these headphone sare crafted to be light and comfortable, unlike its GameCom 777 predecessors, the Game 780 headphones feel light and comfortable, and allow for ease use. Plus the spin-joints let the earpods lay flat for easy storage as well as easy placement around the neck. The mic is retractable mic doesn’t tuck into the head-piece but swivel up to the side of the ear piece itself, you also have you Dolby control but as well as mic mute and volume button on one of the head pieces.
Now lets talk about sound, the Gamecom series from Plantronics is well-known for its audio quality, and the GameCom 780 is no exception. The sound quality for the headphones are outstanding,; clear crisp and clear, giving you the ability to hear teammates properly, you can clear differentiate between in-game sounds. For gunshots, to footsteps and more. It truly enhances the gaming experience. Plus the built-in noise cancelling feature ensures you don’t get any outside interference during your gaming session.
The Plantronics GameCom 780 is a fantastic piece of gaming hardware, the built quality is excellent, and Plantronics always delivers in the sound department. But I think this time the really set the bar high. the really isn’t anything for me to complain about, other than material Plantronics uses for its cushions is a super dust attractor. But serious this is truly a superb piece of hardware and I full recommend them to anyone looking to get a solid gaming headset. and even if you don’t game, its great for video chat too
