Plantronics came to E3 2016 prepared with several new gaming audio products across a wide range of price point.
First off is a pair of new wireless RIG Gaming Headsets which together comprise the RIG 800 Series. The RIG 800 headsets feature a 24-hour battery life with just a 2-hour charge while maintaining a lightweight design. New on earcup controls allow the listener to power on the headset, adjust volume, and choose an EQ setting.
Like the RIG 500 Series, the RIG 800 Series use the same modular suspended headband to hold the two shaped earcups and a folding microphone that automatically mutes when flipped up.
The RIG 800HS and RIG 800 HX are respectively compatible with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One due to each system requiring different wireless dongles. Both headsets will be PC compatible. The RIG 800 Series are expected to release September 2016 for $149.99.
