Plantronics Rig Surround Gaming Headset Review
Plantronics make some of my favorite PC gaming headset from the Commander to the GameCom 780. The have slowly begun to rise in the gaming sphere. The Rig Surround is no different in the legacy crafted by Plantronics. Built as a successor to the GameCom 780, the Rig Surround cost just $99 and at that price you get a headset with a built-in amplifier with Dolby 7.1, 40mm drivers with headset and an awesome microphone. I can’t begin to elaborate on how good the Microphone is on a $99 headset, so the best thing to do is to take a listen to the video review Below
While the audio quality of the headset and mic are wonderful, the true marvel of the rig lays in its amplifier unit which like its previous RIG predecessors does and excellent job at mixing to separate audio channels. Allow you to game effectively on your PC and take a phone call at the same time. Plus the built-in EQ settings help add dynamic range to your listening.I also forgot to mention, that it works with all your gaming consoles including the Xbox One and PS4. To say that I am impressed with the Rig Surround would be an understate meant. This one of the best sounding and well priced gaming headsets, if you are a gamer. Go pick one up, if you work in an office environment go pick one up. Simply put, Go pick one up!!
