Plantronics Unveil Some Huge New Product Series

Today at E3 2016 our partner - Plantronics - unveiled some of their cool new products to add to their popular RIG series headsets for both PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

Plantronics RIG 800

Leading the charge is the all new RIG 800 series - the first wireless gaming headset with up to 24-hour battery life! This allows players on the RIG 800HS (PlayStation 4) and the RIG 800HX (Xbox One) to focus on gaming without worrying about cables getting in the way. The quick battery-charging battery feature allows gamers to charge for just 30 minutes to get up to 1.5 hours of gaming in.

The RIG 800 series are one of the lightest headsets on the market and fit for long-term comfort with memory-foam cushions and sound isolation for an epic immersive gaming experience based on the fan favourite RIG 500 model.

“At Plantronics, we understand the importance of providing gamers with tangible benefits that make them better players,” said Peter Petrides, Director of Gaming Products with Plantronics ANZ. “The RIG 800 series is designed for superior wireless performance and unmatched playtime combined with lightweight comfort and precision controls. As gamers ourselves, we strive to develop products for a whole range of player styles and needs. This is reflected in our extensive lineup of RIG headsets.”

Plantronics RIG 800 Series Features

Performance Audio: Amplified 40mm drivers bring the soundstage to life. Low frequency resonators reinforce bass and limit distortion. Mic monitor lets you hear your outgoing chat level and quality while the noise-cancelling mic ensures your teammates hear you. When you’re done with chat, just flip up the mic to mute it.

Precise Controls: Dual control dials on the left earcup help you quickly adjust the balance between game and chat audio, as well as master volume. Choose an EQ setting to isolate pure highs, intensify the mid-range, enjoy seismic bass, or enhance vocal focus.

Plantronics RIG 600 and RIG 400

The RIG 800 is joined by the RIG 600 and RIG 400 in Q3 2016 in Plantronics lineup of headsets designed specifically for gamers. The RIG 600 features high fidelity audio, balancing distortion-free bass with vibrant mids and treble, allowing users to hear more detail in their games and music. The RIG 400 series includes the RIG 400HX designed for Xbox One and the RIG 400HS for PlayStation 4. Both models feature inline volume and mute controls, high-sensitivity drivers, and removable noise-cancelling mics.

These new product ranges join the RIG 4VR which was announced earlier this year as a dedicated headset for the PlayStation®VR.
