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.

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!

Consumer review by:

Decent quality but poor build

 

The sound quality isn't superb, and neither is the mic. But both are perfectly adequate for anything I did (movies, games, business). For the price I would buy again if it wasn't for my experience with the poor construction.

Comfortable, on-headset volume control and Dolby toggle button. Decent audio and mic quality

The build construction is rather poor (plastic is weak). I have bought two sets of these in the past. The first set lasted 3 months before the plastic over-head clip broke just above the left ear. Figuring I was being rough, but liking the price I...
