60 Second Review of the Plantronics RIG: [...]
As someone who's used the Plantronics GameCom 780 Headset for well over a year to make videos, I was more than happy when I was offered the brand new Plantronics RIG Headset to review.
The headset itself is really snug, turning out to be one of the most comfortable headsets I've ever owned. It works great for endurance gaming, although I did experience a small amount of discomfort at the top of my head due to the rigid frame.
Unexpectedly the audio quality was greater than anything I've owned in the past. Both music and game sounds are crystal clear, beating even my Wireless Afterglows and taking their place as my headphones of choice for PC and mobile. Not only that, but it has 3 separate equalizer options to suit your preference.
Now comes the USP of this product. The RIG takes pride in the fact it can work with nearly every device: PS3, Xbox, mobiles and PC. Not only that, but you can plug it into any device and your mobile at the same time, mixing the audio as you please. There's volume control, microphone mute, voice to game sound modifiers and the toggle which switches to mobile audio, meaning you can accept phone calls without interrupting gaming.. ..much
I must admit I was a little disappointed in the microphone quality, the gamecom felt much clearer. As far as gaming headsets go, the RIG is amazing, but for content creators such as myself, you may want to invest in a headset with a better microphone.
An innovative and versatile gaming headset, the RIG gets a solid 8 out of 10.
