On August 20th, 2019, Plantronics launched their all-day comfort RIG 700 gaming headphones at Gamescom. The headphones offer the lightest gaming on head experience with hours of stress and fatigue-free gaming. The headsets are an addition to Plantronics award-winning RIG gaming line.
RIG 700 is one of the most durable, precise and ultra-lightweight as claimed by the company. Ultra-lightweight has been highlighted the most as well as a massive 12 hours of battery life for intense and long gaming sessions. The headphones are compatible with top-notch consoles such as the Xbox One (HX), PlayStation (HS) and Windows PC (HD).
“Lightweight comfort and wireless design are two must-haves we consistently hear gamers are looking for in their favorite gaming headset,” said Corey Rosemond, Global Director, Marketing and Business Development at Poly.
Design and colours
The company is offering the RIG 700 in a range of new colours and patterns. What’s interesting is that it is equipped with a game/chat balance dial on the earcup. This allows you to easily keep a balance between the audio levels of the game and chat suiting your needs. The company took a competitive edge by featuring the Windows Sonic surround-sound to boost game audio.
“Not only does RIG 700 Series answer that calls, but it also brings competitive gamers the audio precision they crave, and endurance build that they need to rack-up their wins and get totally immersed in the gameplay.”
