Plantronics (NYSE:PLT), a global leader in audio communications, today announced two new PC gaming headsets, RIG Surround and RIG Flex at Gamescom 2014, the world’s largest event highlighting interactive games and entertainment. The new headsets will be showcased at the Plantronics MarketPoint Pavilion 18, and on the show floor in the ESL ZONE in Hall 9 in Salon C-054a, and will be available worldwide for Holiday 2014.
“PC gamers know they can rely on Plantronics to deliver premium gaming audio and headsets that can take on serious gaming sessions,” said Dorothy Ferguson, head of global marketing at Plantronics Gaming. “RIG Surround takes everything PC gamers love about Plantronics headsets – performance audio, long-wearing comfort, form perfectly suited to function – and takes everything a step further, offering a feature-rich premium gaming audio system at an unbelievable price.”
The successor to the top-selling1 and critically-acclaimed GameCom 780, RIG Surround raises the bar for wired PC gaming headsets. Offering Dolby® 7.1 Surround sound and signature Plantronics audio precision, RIG Surround will get your adrenaline pumping with totally immersive positional audio. Chose from three EQ settings: Pure for improved voice clarity, Intensify for bass and mid-range boost, and Seismic for earthshaking bass without rumbling or distortion. RIG Surround includes a full-featured audio controller allowing for a totally customizable auditory experience, allowing gamers to connect to a smartphone or tablet to mix in a custom gaming soundtrack, or stay connected to their apps and notifications when engaged in a marathon gaming session. And with a touch of the toggle, switch the mic from game to side chat to amp up your strategy. RIG Surround will be available this holiday season for $99.99, £89.99 and €99.99 (MSRP), making premium gaming audio more accessible than ever before.
Plantronics is also introducing RIG Flex, a lightweight stereo headset for PC, Mac and mobile devices. The 40 mm speaker drivers deliver Plantronics audio performance with sharp highs and deep bass, and the noise-canceling boom mic ensures crystal clear chat and voice commands. Swap out the boom for the inline mic and take RIG Flex out of the house for music and gaming on the go. The cushioned headband and padded earcups make for hours of comfortable wear while gaming, watching movies or relaxing with music. RIG Flex will be available this Fall for $79.99 USD, £69.99 and €79.99 EUR (MSRP).
Plantronics Gaming offers a range of audio peripherals at a range of price points to meet the needs of every gamer, whether they play on mobile, console or PC.
At Gamescom 2014, attendees will be able to experience RIG headsets at Plantronics booth (C-054a) within the ESL ZONE, the PlayStation® booth and the MarketPoint meeting room area (Hall 4.2 A021 Pavilion 18).
