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...

Bad cord.


Good sound quality for the price, good value for money

Terrible cord. After 1.5 years, the cord (being some silly rubbery thing) coils on itself, messing with the connection

Consumer review by:

Comfy, with a few drawbacks


Make sure you buy an extension cable or have your tower less than 3 feet from your head if you want to sit comfortably.

The headset's sound is extremely rich, it really makes you feel like you're in the game and it's a really great sounding piece for the price. You get an item that you can sell for $60 of Steam credit right out of the box, so the headset pays for itself

The Dota 2 logo is velcroed on rather than stiched into the headset and you have to put it on yourself. The cord is EXTREMELY short. It hardly reaches my tower on the ground, I have to buy a USB extension cable

Fantastic price, fantastic sound


These are my first set of high end headsets and since then, I've been comparing headsets left and right. That includes products from turtle beach, gamecom, razer, and a few others ; I haven't found any headset that has delivered better sound quality...

Maybe I'm stupid, but I haven't found an easy way to get all the dust bunnies and other things out of the comfort material on the headset, but that's it

It's okay, I suppose


The more relevant product specifications are: Cable length: 2 meters/6 feet Speaker driver size: 40 mm diameter Speaker Frequency response: 20 Hz-20 kHz Speaker sensitivity: 123 dBSPL/mW Speaker impedance: 32 ohms Microphone frequency response: 100...

The mic isn't nearly as bad as some, more expensive, USB headsets, but it could be better ; The audio sounds good, but does leave something to be desired at lower levels

Even after being adjusted the headset is rather tight ; Sound leakage is an issue. Not only will you enjoy listening to your music, everyone else will too ; Playing back audio with a lower frequency causes crackling when using the surround sound...

Do not buy


While this is a good headset, it falls short in some important categories. There are better offerings from other manufacturers, so steer clear of this.

Great headset, sounds are crisp and clear and 7.1 is awesome. Well built, decent quality for the price

These have the same freq. response and LESS bass than my creative fatality headset that is >5 years old ; The microphone is a mixed bag on this one. Its extremely clear and sounds great, however it picks up every single noise in the room. When I say...
