GameCom 777 headset

Plantronics today announced the GameCom 777 headset, the newest addition to its gaming line. A USB sound chipset inside the set processes Dolby Headphone for enhanced stereo listening and Dolby Pro Logic II for virtual 5.1 surround sound. For multi-player games with voice communication, a sound canceling boom microphone can be rotated out of the headband or tucked away for listening alone.

Volume or muting controls are located in-line to allow uninterrupted gaming. Dolby Headphone and specialized earpod shape are both claimed to reduce listening fatigue during long periods of use. The GameCom 777 is the flagship of the GameCom line with a price of $100, and will be available in September from Plantronics or retailers.
