Plantronics RIG Review: Fast Gaming/Mobile Audio Switch

 

Plantronics is launching a new gaming accessory called RIG, and it is essentially a sound mixer with a switch that will let you configure your gaming audio, gaming chat and mobile audio (or any other source connected via a jack […]

Since this is a Plantronics product, you may expect some kind of Bluetooth support, so I should point out that Bluetooth is not supported in this version. It’s not hard to imagine that other versions could be built with fancier options at some point,...

The Plantronics RIG headphone pair combines a gaming headset and smartphone compatibility to good effect.

Flexible design makes it functional as a gaming headset and headphones for mobile devices. Comfortable design. Solid midrange performance

Weak treble. Expensive for a wired stereo gaming headset

Gaming headsets are usually just for gaming, or at least just for using when hooked up to your computer or game system. Normally, you put them on when you sit down at your desk and take them off when you leave, switching to your favorite headphones or...

Review: Plantronics RIG

 

One of the most versatile and fully featured gaming headsets on the market.

For the versatility alone, this is probably our pick of gaming headsets on the market. Well played.

Plantronics Rig gaming headset

 

The Plantronics Rig is more than just a gaming headset - at least, that's the plan. It connects to your mobile too, so you can switch from the gaming action to taking a call with one touch. It has swappable microphones as well, so if you're fed up of...

Sound quality from the Plantronics Rig is fantastic, thanks to the 40mm speaker drivers. They make gunshots from games sound ear-splittingly realistic. Three EQ profiles give you plenty of flexibility based on what you want to do: you can choose from...

At £109.99, the Plantronics Rig is far from cheap, especially when you consider a headset comes with the Xbox 360. In fact, you could buy three official Xbox 360 headsets for less than that, which puts it in perspective. It's wired as well, which isn't...

The Plantronics Rig is great at what it does. But to justify the high price you'll need to spend an awful lot of time not just gaming, but in multiplayer mode with voice chat. If that's you, this is the perfect headset. The rest of us are better off...

The Plantronics RIG headphone pair combines a gaming headset and smartphone compatibility to good effect.

While it’s pricey for a wired, stereo headset, the Plantronics RIG combines solid performance with flexibility, including a handy way to use it with your smartphone both when you’re at your desk and on the go. It works well as a pair of standalone...
