Released in late August 2008, the Plantronics Gamecom 777 is a USB headset aimed at gamers. Featuring Dolby Pro Logic II support, the Gamecom 777 creates a virtual 5.1 environment that improves the positioning and effects implimented in todays competitive games. As a USB device it is difficult to say how the Gamecom 777 can act as a high quality audio device due to the fact that most gamers require higher quality audio cards with support for EAX and other complicated audio technologies, but these advanced effects are compatible with the Gamecom 777 with it's analog inputs. Good isolation, sound quality, handy volume controls and a hide away boom microphone which allows for gamers to easily communicate with teammates without getting in the way all promise a winner, but the jury is still out.

Features
  • virtual 5.1 surround (Dolby Pro Logic II)
  • Analog connections optional
  • USB connectability (no soundcard required)
  •  In-line volume controls and mute
