    Comparable to High End Headsets.

    Posted .

    The Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset, after the installation of Dolby Atmos gives my ears an experience similar to viewing a movie in an IMAX theater. I can differentiate amongst all the different sounds clearly. Viewing my computer screen with the Plantronics Gaming Headset on gives an experience of actually becoming absorbed into the game or video that I am watching. Using the Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset without installing Dolby Atmos still works, but I can notice the missing stereophonic sounds. The Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset ear pads are extremely soft and cushiony. My ears fit inside the ear pads with no tightness or discomfort. They can be adjusted to fit tight or loose, depending on your preference. The Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset also has a volume control attached to its cord. There is a detachable microphone that can have its distance adjusted to create the correct vocals. The Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset is worth the small amount of money it cost. I am surprised they are not priced for $200 or more, because they function comparable to the higher end Headsets.

    I bought this product for my grandson so he could talk to his friends while playing Fortnite. He really likes the headset and says they work really well. I have used them while playing Fallout 76 and I like the comfort and the sound. You can hear which way the trouble is coming from. The sound is clear and realistic. Good product for the money.

    I bought other headsets that were expensive but didn't have as much of a good quality sounding. The microphone is crisp when playing VR people tell me that the quality is good. The sound is just right, has good bass. I plug them into my Rift S Virtual Reality Gaming headset.

    Awesome headset for gaming and streaming.

    Posted .

    This headset has it all! Over the ear pads with a soft foam for maximum comfort. For someone that wears glasses when they are at the computer this is a must! The free Dolby Atmos download and use is amazing with these headphones! Which is perfect for games that require good sound as part of the gaming experience. Finally the noise cancelling mic helps for both in game communications as well as for streaming! No more endless keystrokes and breathing picked up. Just crystal clear voice for the best communications I've ever experience with a gaming headset.

    good audio quality for most games - if you aren't an audiophile. A bit heavier than I thought but overall good buy for the money.

    Awesome PC Headset

    Posted .

    The Plantronics RIG 500 Pro is a fantastic headset that is very lightweight, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. There is a volume slider on the cord which is easy to reach and the mic is detachable and you're able to mute it by simply putting it in an upright position. The mic is good and clear but not anything great. My teammates had no complains with sound quality and could understand me clearly. The audio quality for the headset is top notch and provides a rich surround sound when the game provides it. You are also given a Dolby Atmos code to experience movies and games that support it when you're using a PC and Xbox One. The bass on the headset is punchy and these can get really really loud. The noise isolation is great and I could not hear a sound from my dogs to people entering the house. Overall, this is a really awesome mid priced headset that delivers the sound quality you deserve for an amazing gaming experience.

    Amazing quality and comfort

    Posted .

    The Plantronics – RIG 500 PRO Gaming Headset is simply incredible. I have primarily used it for gaming on my Xbox One and at this point, I can’t play without it. The sound quality is superb and it is the most comfortable headset I have ever tried on. The surround sound feeling really comes in handy when listening for footsteps or shots and knowing exactly which direction these sounds are coming from. One of the only slight drawbacks I have found is the mute function. Rather than having a button to press on the bottom of the controller where the headset connects, in order to mute the microphone, you have to physically rotate the mic itself into an upward position. I like having a mute button easily accessible near the controller itself but this is a minor issue that doesn’t detract from the other great features of this headset. Overall, this is a great gaming headset and I highly recommend it!

    Best headset ever owned so far!

    Posted .

    Guys, i’ve spent well into the thousands of dollars buying headsets for my gaming.. and these so far seem the most durable.. I wouldn’t say they sounded the best of all the pairs i’ve Ever owned.. but they do sound good and also they sure are comfortable.. sometimes the Bluetooth reset where I have to pair it again..2 clicks and I’m back on it.. but this set beats having to replace them every so often from other manufacturers.. good job rig!

    RIG 500 PRO PC Gaming Headset (Plantronics)

    Posted .

    Upon arriving back from my vacation, I came home to this very nice gaming headset. Inside the box was the usual warranty info and instruction manual, along with the detachable/adjustable/expandable headset the mic and the audio cable that connects to your laptop or desktop. Connecting everything was very simple as snapping the mic into place on the left side as well as the audio cable. Sound quality was superb. Inside the box also was a code for Dolby Atmos which I could tell the difference immediately. Everyone could hear me clearly with no static or cut-out issues. Very glad I got this gaming headset and recommend it to anyone looking for a good gaming headset. One thing to note is that even though it says PC Gaming Headset, this headset is also compatible to be used on an Xbox One S or Playstation 4. I love the color too, I have the Gold/Black set.

    Great wireless headset

    |
    Posted .

    Using with the XBox One. Downloaded the free (with purchase) sound software upgrade and enjoy the immersive surround sound. it really adds to gameplay and they charge easily. I've played for almost 4 hours with no interruption or concerns. They're comfortable and I like that the mic is off when it's in its "up" position and off in the "down." as well as the accompanying sound to confirm the On and Off status. About the only feature I would love is a QI charging feature with a charging rack they could hang from so all you have to do is hang them (and display them) when you're done. Regardless, they were worth the money.

    Comfortable with good sound quality!

    Posted .

    These headphones are very comfortable. The cushions on the ear pieces are like large pillows on your ears. The headband is comfortable to wear and the mic fit my son in a comfortable spot. The noice canceling on the mic was much better on this then other gaming headsets we have purchased in the past. This comes with a code for an included download of the Dolby Atmos software. If you have both a PC and and Xbox, you download it for one, you get it for both. These are a good gaming headset for PC!

    Excellent headset combo for multiple consoles

    |
    Posted .

    Only used on PC so far, but has above average sound and the mic registers voice well. However I did need to boost my output volume from Windows default otherwise it was too quiet to be heard. Overall comfortable to wear for long periods of time, but I find the over head strap to be a little awkwardly placed towards front and can feel like it is perpetually slipping forward.

    Decent Sound, but can't hear yourself talk

    Posted .

    When I first got these out of the box I thought they were made out of cheap plastic because they were so light. They feel like they would break easily. But they're made out of metal and they are extremely light. What I like most about these headphones is the versatility: I can use them on PS4, Xone and PC. I primarily play single player games on PC and play online with friends on Xone and PS4. It's nice to have one nice pair that can be used cross platform. In terms of sound, they sound pretty good. I don't think they sound any better than my Razer Kraken, but they are more comfortable to wear. They let in some ambient noise, but that's okay for me. The biggest drawback is the fact that you can't hear your own voice when talking with friends (at least on PS4). I can hear their voices fine and they can hear me, but I hate not knowing how loud I'm talking. I do like the simplicity of the microphone: to mute who simply swivel it up and to turn it back on you swivel it down. All in all, these are good a set of gaming headphones but I don't think they really stand out in any way in a crowded market. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, there's just a lot of good choices out there. If you like the design and color scheme, and you want some flexibility with consoles/PC use (and don't mind not being able to hear yourself talk) then this is a great choice.

    Light weight and Great

    I'm impressed by them. They are great for the price. The best thing I like is they are super light. I was very worried about them being fragile, nope. The one thing I will warn, I travel and thought it best to re-box each time I would go somewhere. Just leave the MIC in and put it in a bag or somewhere its not made to be taken in and out repeatedly, it starts puling out the piece that holds it up and wrecks it. Not the product's fault, don't think they thought someone would do that.

    Great sound and comfortable

    Posted .

    Great inexpensive headset. It fits well and there are 3 positions you could adjust depending of your head size. The sound is great and there is a volume controller inline. The mic mutes itself if you bring it upright. One thing that didn't like is it doesn't come with an adapter for pcs that have one connector for audio and one for mic separately, it comes with the type of connector that is both in one. I had to get an adapter. Other than that, its a great headset and it comes with a free code to enable Dolby headphone audio in windows 10 and in the xbox one (it will enable in both if you use your same email/account). So far its great, not only its a surround 7.1 solution, but adds 3D environment! (aka, sounds from above, below).

    Purchased these headphones to replace the Hyper Cloud X headset I had previously, and the sound quality is much better. I did have to purchase a mix adapter for the controller to avoid echo I was having with party chats, but other than that it has been high quality.

    Nifty Gaming Headset Really like the Mute Function

    Posted .

    This headset is comfortable, adjustable, and the sound is great. I tried out the dolby atmos for headphones via the included code, but maybe I'm not an audiophile enough to really tell much of a difference from regular 7.1 emulation on decent headsets. This headset worked well with a Windows 10 pc and an Xbox One via the controller jack. I really like the flip up mic to mute function. Takes a lot of fumbling out of the equation. These are the best performing gaming headset I've ever used, audio is a draw with some others (Turtlebeach) I've used in the past, but the easy to use mic-mute feature puts these over the top.

    Love this headset

    I bought this primarily as a headset for my Xbox One X, but it has also replaced my Corsair Void RGB wireless headset for my PC. Sounds fantastic with games, especially ones that support the Dolby Atmos. I was impressed with the sound quality of Atmos and how games become more immersive. I will even use this headset on my PS4 most likely, even though it does not utilize Atmos. I did try it with my PSVR, which the breakout box does spacial audio with these and it still sounded good.
