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.

Conclusion 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...

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 review: This excellent headset's killer feature feels like a gimmick

 

The Rig is an excellent all-around headset with some unnecessary features that drive up the price.

Solid performance with a reliable mic. ; Well-designed mixer puts everything you need at your fingertips.

Secondary input channel is nothing but a (neat) gimmick. ; No surround sound.

I have mixed feelings about Plantronic’s latest headset. The Rig seems like a solution in search of a problem: Being able to plug my phone into my headset mixer when I sit down to game is nice, but it doesn’t improve my experience in a meaningful...

Plantronics Rig Flex LX - Gaming Headset Review

 

The Plantronics Rig Flex LX is easy to recommend on sound quality alone, but its sheer versatility is what truly makes it a standout. The headset's crisp highs make it easy to hear where your opponents are coming from, while its rich bass is equally...

Excellent sound ; Lightweight and comfortable ; Highly versatile audio adapter ; Included in-line remote.

Some audio controls hard to reach ; Delicate design.

The Plantronics Rig Flex LX headset offers Xbox One gamers excellent sound and plenty of useful audio controls.

Plantronics RIG Review

 

When it comes down to gaming headphones, most people think of brands such as Turtle Beach or even Razer, but those are not the only contenders providing us with good gaming audio support solutions. Other brands such as Plantronics , a company started...

Great solid headphone build ; Good quality plastics and great solid comfortable padding ; Multitasking hub easy to use and works very well ; Easy to set up ; Compatible with many gamingplatforms ; Compatible with most mobile phones ; Good audio quality

Headphone to hub cable too short ; Headphone can get a bit heavy after a long gaming session ; Xbox One compatibility issues ; Limited equalizer settings

So there you have it, this is a great package! Plantronics’s RIG really offers great value for money and in our opinion the £90.00 pricing tag is well worth it. For this, you not only get a good quality built and good sounding pair of headphones but...

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...

We love the finish on the white version of the cups though the puck does feel a touch cheaper. It is certainly sturdy enough but doesn’t quite have the same premium finish as the headset itself. In terms of controls, the unit offers more than most with...

The Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset Reviewed

 

Have you ever been on a game winning streak, or near an all time high score and your phone rings? Do you answer it, or keep going? Or perhaps your team really needed to get a hold of you to defend the team's title almost last minute but you were too...

Lightweight Design ; Long durable cabling ; Good audio quality ; Dual audio input works on multiple devices ; Common cabling all included ; Innovative RIG mixer design

No retractable or collapsible mic ; Mic doesn’t hold placement well ; Has some inline mic hissing

Today’s new generation of gamers love their games, music, and social media, and crave access to it 24/7. It’s a tough target to hit but Plantronics may have zeroed in on them just right with the RIG gaming headset. It really allows you to stay mobile...

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
