Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plantronics 86050-05 Gamecom 380 Gaming Headset (Personal Computers)
When you look online for a gaming headset, you would want it to be reasonably priced and also provide all the funcationality that other gaming headsets provide. For those on a very tight budget, the Plantronics Gamecom 380 PC Stereo Gaming Headset is something that many people would be looking into.
Let's have a look at the pros and cons of this gaming headset.
Lightweight - Built mostly of plastic. Headband is sturdy and has a bit of flex to accomodate for different sizes of heads.
Comfortable - Ear cups go around your ears. Can be worn for long periods of time without discomfort.
Easy to Use - Just plug the headset in the 3.5mm jacks and you're ready to go!
Microphone is good - Clear voices and good quality for price range. Can be bent to a position which suits you.
Sound is decent - Above average sound quality with a bit of crosstalk.
Turnable cups - Makes wearing headset around neck a viable option.
Cable is 2m long - Should be long enough for most people.
Volume and mic control on left cup - Personally I like this very much, but it may not be everybody's cup of tea.
Hardly any bass from drivers (For games, it's fine. For music and movies, oh hell no!).
Glossy plastic on the outside of the cups are basically fingerprint magnets.
Rubber cable - Would have preferred a braided cable, but can't really expect it in this price range.
I was pleasantly surprised to have got such a good product. The gaming headset is comfortable to wear and provides decent sound quality. The microphone is adjustable and is clear. There is also a microphone on/off switch and a volume dial on the left cup.
It is very hard to find a decent gaming headset in this budget price range, but this gaming headset has managed to stand out from all the other gaming headsets in this price range. Personally I think this gaming headset is very good and should by considered by those PC gamers out there who was struggling to find cash to splash. Even if you're not a PC gamer and you only intend to use this headset for things such as skype calls, I would still highly recommend them to you!
