Plantronics GameCom 777 Headset Review

Hey guys.
As promised, I've got the Plantronics GameCom 777 Headset review for you. First off, I've gotta say it's HUGE!
Babam! So yeah, I put these suckers on my head and I was skeptical at first. I could still hear everything going on around me, even my girlfriend listening to her favorite Pandora station with her laptop on full volume. So I opened up iTunes and put on some music, and I was pretty impressed. The sound is great, albeit I did have to go into the sound options in Windows and turn on bass boost (the treble was too high for my taste). I couldn't hear a thing anymore except the sweet sweet music.  We can't forget though, this headset IS for gamers, so you're probably wondering where the microphone is at judging from the above pictures, right?
That's right. The microphone has a nice little slot within the plastic of the top part of the headset that it hides in. Pretty damn sweet if you ask me. After I found the hidden microphone, I fired up Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and started playing, this is where I started to lose confidence.  The headphones are "virtual" 7.1 surround sound.  Basically this headset is like a really big, really nice "noise-through" headset with a GREAT microphone and good quality sound.  My girlfriend enjoys the new headset as well, since I don't have to talk as loud to felt like I'm being heard, since you still are able to hear what's going on around you without it being too distracting. This headset will replace the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 and become my new primary headset.

I got the headset off of Amazon.com for $56.99 with their free 2 day Amazon Prime shipping.  Overall, I rate the headset about 8.5/10.

Next up: Ubuntu Review :)

Stay tuned!
