5.0 out of 5 stars Great budget gaming headset!, 18 April 2014
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.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.

Conclusion:
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!
