Plantronics launches new gaming headset at IFA

The GameCom 777 with Dolby tech

Plantronics has revealed its latest headset for gamers and although the company has a fairly extensive line-up, this time it seems like the company is onto a real winner with the GameCom 777. The headset can be used with your excisting sound card, but it also comes with a USB dongle which adds Dolby Headphone and Dolby Pro Logic II technology into the mix, ideal for when you want to watch movies on your PC.

The GameCom 777 has 40mm drivers, which should provide plenty of oomph and there's a built-in boom mic which can be clipped to the headband when it's not in use, which is a really neat feature. The in-line volume control also has a mic mute button, although it seems to be a bit on the large side.

Plantronics also claims that the GameCom 777 is using, "Rugged, military-grade design and extra-strength cables [which] make[s] your hardware hardcore." It's all good and well they've spent some extra effort on making them hardwearing, but that sounds a little bit too cheesy to us.

At US$99 (€67/£54) they seem to be good bang for your buck, although we'd wait for a review or two to find out how good they really are.
