Plantronics GameCom Commander


It could be a little more comfortable, but the Plantronics GameCom Commander is a top-of-the-line gaming headset with great sound and killer style.

Great sound ; Sensitive mic ; Superior build quality

Some discomfort ; Can get hot

If your gaming takes you on the road to LAN parties and events, then you will probably appreciate the sturdy construction and rugged carry case. Those who game at home certainly won't be disappointed by the sound but may find the GameCom Commander to...

Plantronics GameCom Commander Gaming Headset Review


Built for competitive gamers and fun-loving enthusiasts, can the Plantronics GameCom Commander Pro Gaming headset deliver the top-class performance that its ruthless target audience will demand?...

Excellent sound quality ; Very good Dolby 7.1 surround sound capabilities ; Strong microphone reception ; Sturdy design ; High-quality carry case

Uncomfortable for extended periods of time ; Ears can get warm quickly ; Expensive ; No fine-tuning components or software

KitGuru says: A good headset with strong audio performance and an immersive surround sound experience. Unfortunately, the comfort levels aren’t great and the price tag gives Plantronics’ GameCom Commander very stiff competition.

Best Headphones


I can live with the extra weight to get the great sound. These were better sounding than my Bose set up I use for listening to music and with this discount you cannot go wrong.

Sound is superb, much better than the sennheizer HD 212 Pro they replaced. I tested the 7.1 UBS but found it OK but not as good as my SB card. Fit for me was very good and all adapters it came with fit all my needs. The case was a plus much more heavy...

The only con is the weight of these compared with my other pair of cans is more then double

I knocked one egg off only because of my problem with the headphones sliding down, otherwise it's a great pair of headphones! I would buy them again.

Everything considered a pro is pretty much outlined on the product's page

These headphones left me with a "heavy" feeling after wearing them for hours at a time ; I had problems keeping the headphones in one comfortable position, because they keep sliding downwards off my ears slowly over-time

Consumer review by:

Great Headset but a little tight.


When Plantronics decides to reboot these as their next flagship gaming headset, lets hope they address the design functionality. They would have a world class headset had they took a little more time with the earcups!

Very clear mic ; Great sound quality from a gaming headset ; Very non-linear design ; Added 7.1 virtual surround usb card for when needed

I have to take a star away for design functionality, while these headphones are very different and some-what cool looking the ear pieces tend to slide down no matter how you set them and the headband tends to pinch, ever so lightly but still present....

discomfort trumps all


Considering these are supposed to be for gaming, they are rather disappointing. I would expect them to be comfortable for at least 2 or 3 hours, but they start to bother me at around 30-40 minutes.

Sound quality is great. Nice deep lows etc. Mic quality is also really good. It really isolates your voice. I even tried recording guitar+vocals on the same track (just to test it) and the guitar was barely picked up when just 2 feet away

As I said, discomfort trumps all. I think people are wrongly accusing the tightness of being the cause. The tightness allows for good sound and noise-cancellation. The discomfort makes me want to take the headset OFF and not just readjust it ; It's...

Highly Impressive


Best sound to price value on the market. Bar none. A steal at $79.99 and even $99.99. Though they can be uncomfortable, the sound makes it worth it for me at least. I don't game for more than 2-3 hours at a time, and survive.

This is an addition to my previous post. My 5 stars still stand as is, but this is an update on what I have encountered with these headphones ; The sound still continues to amaze me. Quite honestly the best sounding headphones I have ever used. I am...

Now for the elephant in the room ; Yes, these do get very uncomfortable after about an hour of playing. Yes, the headphones do slide down ; To combat this, I wear a fleece beanie and it seems to do the trick. I do have to adjust the headphones...

Sound was impressive - fit/comfort was lacking


I read multiple reviews and decided to risk the purchase, although I read about the earpiece "sliding down." I got such a good deal when it was the "Shell Shocker" and I was so impressed by the sound that I attempted to just deal with the earcup...

Build Quality - this feels amazing, you can tell they built these to last ; Sound Quality - I loved the sound these things pumped out, the surround was immersive (Although the volume seemed rather limited)

Fit - as mentioned in numerous other review, the left earpiece was too heavy, and the tension was not enough to hold the earpiece up. This was the deal breaker for me, which is why I returned them ; Comfort - These sit ON EAR, not AROUND the ear as...

Not good


A pity. Good looking, should have been killer sound and performance. Top rated by MaximumPC. A waste of my time and money.

The USB Dongle actually let them produce acceptable sound. Excellent deal (WOW! $59!!) ; Newegg shipping was, again, the best I have ever used/encountered in my long life

Using the 3.5 connections I had to turn up the in-line Plantronics volume to Max to get enough volume AND my on-board sound to about 90 ; Sound was NOT as good at any volume as my old Sennheiser HD280's nor my old Plantronics DSP500s ; The Big One...

I bought them when they first came out for 300$ and they are still working today without a problem. I am buying them again because it was 60$ for the best headsets I've ever used.

Just about everything, but how the ears wear made. 7.1 is really no joke, yes there is little to no bass, but the less bass a headsets has the clearer it is. I've never used any headsets that were better, I've used the 2100 Corsair, Kraken Pros and...

Its true that it maybe uncomfortable the first few time you put it on but you need to break the bad boys in. It may take a week or 4 months, but when you break them in they are really perfect
