Plantronics GameCom 780

 

We were optimistic about the Plantronics GameCom 780 PC gaming headset, but it felt short in audio quality. The new design overshadows the faults of older models, but we still hoped for more. A large benefit to this PC gaming headset is the low price...

The Plantronics GameCom 780 is comfortable to wear for extended gaming sessions

The ear cups are bigger than necessary

Overall, this is a balanced headset, but it does not have anything that really sets it apart.

Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset

 

This headset integrates a noise-cancelling microphone, which allows your voice to be heard clearly during multiplayer games (by cancelling out any background noise). This can make a big difference to your teammates if you do a lot of online gaming. The...

Overall we were very impressed with both the superior sound and build quality of the GameCom 780. The Dolby Surround Sound works extremely well and made a noticeable improvement to both the gaming and listening experience. The noise cancelling mic...

The Gamecom 780 is a bargain of a headset at just £38 offering a cool retro design, comfort and Dolby 7.1 surround. Sound performance is great for games and movies, and almost as good for music. It's a shame the excellent surround sound feature isn't...

Plantronics Gamecom 780 review

 

Plantronics has carved a niche with a range of chunky but comfortable and effective gaming headsets. The Gamecom 780 is the latest addition to the range and an apparent upgrade and replacement to the award-winning Plantronics Gamecom 777.

The headset provides good audio quality and great virtual surround sound but is uncomfortable to wear for extended periods

GOLD!

Plantronics has been around for quite a while now when it comes to producing audio headsets. Their products have been used by call centres and airline pilots around the world and even NASA astronauts like Neil Armstrong himself!

A Solid Product

 

Overall, great product, it lasted me forever and it's pretty cheap. Anyone looking for a cheap but good product, choose this.

This pair of headphones lasted me a little over a year. It does come with a few flaws, but with proper care, it could last you a long time ; Great sound quality ; Button on the side to turn on 7.1 surround sound (which sounds amazing in games,...

Now, it does have some flaws. Like I said, with proper care and use of the headset like putting it away properly, not throwing it and stuff, it will last a while ; The headband is made of a cheapish plastic, so it is easy to break. About 8 months of...

The headset is "OK" for 30 minute - 1 hour sessions, but then they start to hurt quite badly, and the sound quality is truly awful. I don't like a pounding bass, but these have none, and you need at least a little bit to create a full sound. The trebs...

Metal extensions, sturdy: +1 egg ; aesthetically cool, red accents: +1 egg

ear cups very small, clothes pins on ears after 2 hours: -2 eggs ; buttons feel very delicate and cheap: -1 egg ; sound quality is terrible, if you know any better: -2 eggs

The Headphones

 

This headset has amazing 7.1 quality for the price. I would suggest this to anyone! They are cheap and they feel like they are high end

The Ear pieces are a little small and can crush ones ear... But just folding you ears a little can fix that all together
