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,...

Plantronics RIG

 

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...

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset and Mixer Review

 

In terms of the number of headsets manufactured and sold, Plantronics must be right up there in the list of largest audio manufacturers. Their office based products are used across the world and are known to offer a quality, reliable experience. In...

Plantronics RIG Review: Smartphone and Gaming Chat Together At Last

 

For $129, the RIG is worth it if you frequently talk to friends over the phone while gaming or appreciate listening to your own music while listening to the game. It may not have the audio fidelity as, say, a pair of Astros or Turtle Beach gaming...

The RIG produces decent sound for its price point and the control mixer adds a new level of smartphone control when gaming. The headphones are light and comfortable for long-term wear, chat quality is top notch and the flat cables really help keep...

Construction is kind of on the cheap and flimsy side. The volume sliders for switching between smartphone and gaming mode could be consistent. Audible distortion at higher volumes with the master volume ring

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset Review

 

The headset has an audio character that's not for everybody, but being able to switch to calls with the RIG mixer is interesting enough on its own.

Hands on: Plantronics RIG review

 

A jack-of-all trades headset

Affordable ; Cross-platform compatibility ; Not too bulky

Not entirely Xbox One compatible ; Wire reach may be an issue

Expert review by:

Plantronics Rig Surround

 

Mix in music from your phone and answer calls with this gaming headset

Headset itself is well designed ; Headset provides decent audio quality ; Really useful to be able to mix in music and answer calls ; USB controller is easy to use

May be too bassy for some ; Mobile phone cable not included in box

The Plantronics Rig is a great headset that, because of its included USB amplifier, is a versatile one too, suitable at home and on the move. However, a few little grumbles mean it isn't quite a resounding success, though still well worth considering.

Newly basking in the lime light following winning a prestigious International Forum Product Design Award 2014 in the Audio / Video category, the RIG system is a Plantronics product. It has been designed to allow users to immerse themselves in an audio...

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...

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...
