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.

Great headphones for price

 

Awesome sound with the 7.1 surround. Nice feature with the mic lock

Tends to slid down your ears after long periods of use

Consumer review by:

Great mic and sound.

 

Keep in mind that the mic on this headset is stronger then the cheaper headsets and it will pick up every noise in the background even if you do spend hours trying to adjust the sensitivity.

The mic has an amazing clarity and quality with all sounds it picks up ; The sound is wonderful and crystal clear ; The package as a whole is a great side note to the headset itself with a beautiful case and multiple cords for whatever your needs

This headset does tend to start hurting your ears and your head after a short time ; The adjustable head/ear sliders on the sides do not hold any form of adjustment you make, they just keep sliding ; The in-line volume and mic mute are not that far...

Great purchase

 

Many of the other reviews say about how it is uncomfortable for their heads but it is just perfect on mine and I feel like it gets more comfortable with more use. Also I would 100% recommend this it is a lot of bang for it's cost.

Great headset ; Superb mic quality and amazing sound ; Nice and secure on my head

I haven't found any so far because the maximum size of the headset fully extended fits my head the best

Gamecomm Commander vs Gamecom 780

 

Between the two I would have to say the 780 is the far better buy due to comfort, sound quality/volume and noise cancelling quality of the mic. I have not used either headset in a high-volume location, so unsure if there is a standout in that...

The Commander and the 780 are about the same price point. I own both and am going to list the pros vs. cons between them ; Pros for Commander ; Great carrying case ; Debatably more stylish ; Extremely sensitive mic (note cons) ; USB and 3.5mm...

Commander cons ; NOT comfortable - they may break in haven't had the time with them yet. I have the tiniest ears ever and my ears DO fit inside the earcups, but they are currently very warm after only about 30 minutes wearing this set ; Surround sound...

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

Review

 

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...
