Plantronics GameCom 780

 

The budget-minded headset has great compatibility and sound that rivals its more expensive counterparts, but unfortunately fails to live up to Plantronics' namesake with a middling microphone.

Comfortable and lightweight, Decent stereo quality, On-ear headset controls, Dolby Headphone and Pro Logic support, Excellent directional sound, Decent game compatibility, Configurable speaker layout

Noisy microphone, Short headphone cord, No equalizer settings, Stereo-only support for OpenAL games

Plantronics GameCom 780 Gaming Headset Review

 

The Plantronics GameCom 780 features some welcomed upgrades from the popular 777 headset and adds style and performance to boot. With online prices well below MSRP the Plantronics GameCom 780 is a must-buy for serious gamers.

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

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!

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

Sounds amazing. Best sound I've had from any set. The headset is huge, and should fit almost anyone's head. The padding on both the ears and the headband is thick and remarkably soft. It's more comfortable to wear than most headsets, despite the size....

My 1st con is that the mic is not like the one in the product images. in the picture is shows the mic having a curve at the end. My set has 1 straight as an arrow so it is a good 2 to 2.5 inches from my mouth. it works but wasn't what I was expecting....
