Plantronics RIG Review: Fast Gaming/Mobile Audio Switch

 

Plantronics is launching a new gaming accessory called RIG, and it is essentially a sound mixer with a switch that will let you configure your gaming audio, gaming chat and mobile audio (or any other source connected via a jack […]

Since this is a Plantronics product, you may expect some kind of Bluetooth support, so I should point out that Bluetooth is not supported in this version. It’s not hard to imagine that other versions could be built with fancier options at some point,...

Plantronics RIG

 

The Plantronics RIG headphone pair combines a gaming headset and smartphone compatibility to good effect.

Flexible design makes it functional as a gaming headset and headphones for mobile devices. Comfortable design. Solid midrange performance

Weak treble. Expensive for a wired stereo gaming headset

Gaming headsets are usually just for gaming, or at least just for using when hooked up to your computer or game system. Normally, you put them on when you sit down at your desk and take them off when you leave, switching to your favorite headphones or...

Starting with the design of the RIG we have a device which on first glance could be a little small but after some time with the headset it is pretty much perfectly proportioned. Especially for those who are going to use it on the move. If we could...

Have you ever been on a game winning streak, or near an all time high score and your phone rings? Do you answer it, or keep going? Or perhaps your team really needed to get a hold of you to defend the team's title almost last minute but you were too...

Lightweight Design ; Long durable cabling ; Good audio quality ; Dual audio input works on multiple devices ; Common cabling all included ; Innovative RIG mixer design

No retractable or collapsible mic ; Mic doesn’t hold placement well ; Has some inline mic hissing

Plantronics RIG Review: Smartphone and Gaming Chat Together At Last

 

For $129, the RIG is worth it if you frequently talk to friends over the phone while gaming or appreciate listening to your own music while listening to the game. It may not have the audio fidelity as, say, a pair of Astros or Turtle Beach gaming...

The RIG produces decent sound for its price point and the control mixer adds a new level of smartphone control when gaming. The headphones are light and comfortable for long-term wear, chat quality is top notch and the flat cables really help keep...

Construction is kind of on the cheap and flimsy side. The volume sliders for switching between smartphone and gaming mode could be consistent. Audible distortion at higher volumes with the master volume ring

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset Review

 

The headset has an audio character that's not for everybody, but being able to switch to calls with the RIG mixer is interesting enough on its own.

Review: Plantronics RIG

 

There's something really nice about being surprised by a product. When you see as many new bits of kit as we do, it's rather easy to get blasé about things; but this headset from Plantronics is really unique, and quite literally new in the gaming...

Plantronics Rig gaming headset

 

The Plantronics Rig is more than just a gaming headset - at least, that's the plan. It connects to your mobile too, so you can switch from the gaming action to taking a call with one touch. It has swappable microphones as well, so if you're fed up of...

The Plantronics Rig is great at what it does. But to justify the high price you'll need to spend an awful lot of time not just gaming, but in multiplayer mode with voice chat. If that's you, this is the perfect headset. The rest of us are better off...
