Product Expert gaming headsets

Sound quality, clear communication, and a robust frame make the Plantronics RIG 500 PRO the headset for both PC and console gamers. The light metal frame with ear cups made of artificial leather make the headset stylish and durable while retaining the well-known adjustability of a RIG headset. 50mm drivers clearly transmit the highs, lows, and mids, and support the three-dimensional sound of Dolby Atmos (code included). The microphone is noise canceling, so your team can only hear your warnings and commands loud and clear, without the tapping of your mechanical keyboard or the button-bashing on your controller. It's not lacking in the user-friendliness department either, since you can control the volume with the slider on your cable, and you can mute the microphone by flipping the boom up.
