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...

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 Gamecom 780 Review

 

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!

Seems good

 

Audio seems good, parts seem solid

when using the headset with audio (skype, gotomeeting) I always have to change settings. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not

Consumer review by:

The sound isn't amazing, but it's a decent headset

 

A decent headset if you can get it on sale.

I picked these up on sale for $40, and they seem to have a pretty solid construction. The microphone is better than the one on my webcam. Also, the volume controls on the headphones themselves is pretty nice

The sound can be beaten by a $30 pair on Sennheisers. Also, the surround sound isn't that impressive

Great headphones if you have a smaller head

 

If you're using Windows 7 or Windows 8, have a smaller head, and are looking for a durable headset with good sound, the GameCom 780 might be exactly what you're looking for. If you have a larger head or use a different OS, I'd advise looking for...

Good sound ; Good microphone ; Durable ; Strong cord ; I purchased my GameCom 780's in late 2012 after going through 6 cheaper headsets in 6 months ; I chose the 780 because of its padded cups and thick USB cord (most of the cheap headsets I went...

Painfully uncomfortable if you have a large head ; Highly reliant on special software ; I cannot use this headset for more than 45 minutes at a time. My right ear feels pinched within 5 minutes, and I have a headache after an hour. My smaller friends...
