Rigged To Go : Plantronics Rig

 

There are headsets and there are headsets. This is also the RIG system.

Newly basking in the lime light following winning a prestigious International Forum Product Design Award 2014 in the Audio / Video category, the RIG system is a Plantronics product. It has been designed to allow users to immerse themselves in an audio...

Plantronics Rig gaming headset

 

The Plantronics Rig is more than just a gaming headset - at least, that's the plan. It connects to your mobile too, so you can switch from the gaming action to taking a call with one touch. It has swappable microphones as well, so if you're fed up of...

The Plantronics Rig is great at what it does. But to justify the high price you'll need to spend an awful lot of time not just gaming, but in multiplayer mode with voice chat. If that's you, this is the perfect headset. The rest of us are better off...

Plantronics RIG Review: Fast Gaming/Mobile Audio Switch

 

Plantronics is launching a new gaming accessory called RIG, and it is essentially a sound mixer with a switch that will let you configure your gaming audio, gaming chat and mobile audio (or any other source connected via a jack […]

Since this is a Plantronics product, you may expect some kind of Bluetooth support, so I should point out that Bluetooth is not supported in this version. It’s not hard to imagine that other versions could be built with fancier options at some point,...

Plantronics Rig review: This excellent headset's killer feature feels like a gimmick

 

The Rig is an excellent all-around headset with some unnecessary features that drive up the price.

Solid performance with a reliable mic. ; Well-designed mixer puts everything you need at your fingertips.

Secondary input channel is nothing but a (neat) gimmick. ; No surround sound.

I have mixed feelings about Plantronic’s latest headset. The Rig seems like a solution in search of a problem: Being able to plug my phone into my headset mixer when I sit down to game is nice, but it doesn’t improve my experience in a meaningful...

Some audio controls hard to reach ; Delicate design.

Plantronics RIG Review

 

When it comes down to gaming headphones, most people think of brands such as Turtle Beach or even Razer, but those are not the only contenders providing us with good gaming audio support solutions. Other brands such as Plantronics , a company started...

Great solid headphone build ; Good quality plastics and great solid comfortable padding ; Multitasking hub easy to use and works very well ; Easy to set up ; Compatible with many gamingplatforms ; Compatible with most mobile phones ; Good audio quality

Headphone to hub cable too short ; Headphone can get a bit heavy after a long gaming session ; Xbox One compatibility issues ; Limited equalizer settings

So there you have it, this is a great package! Plantronics’s RIG really offers great value for money and in our opinion the £90.00 pricing tag is well worth it. For this, you not only get a good quality built and good sounding pair of headphones but...
