Plantronics, Inc. (“Poly” – formerly Plantronics and Polycom) (NYSE: PLT), a global communications company that powers meaningful human connection and collaboration, today announced at Gamescom the addition of the RIG 700 series of wireless headsets to its award-winning RIG gaming line.
The newest addition to the RIG gaming line delivers a durable, precise and ultra-lightweight wireless gaming experience. With up to 12-hours of battery life, the RIG 700 Series is designed to endure an all-night raid or those intense competitive gaming sessions. The RIG 700 series will be available for Xbox One (HX), PlayStation (HS) and Windows PC (HD).
Available in a variety of new colors and patterns and equipped with a game/chat balance dial easily accessible on the earcup, players can perfect the precise audio levels that work for them. RIG 700 HX and HD versions feature Windows Sonic surround-sound to boost game audio the way game designers intended – giving them a competitive edge.
“With its durable, ultra-lightweight design and long battery life, the new RIG 700 Series provides the best experience for gamers,” said Peter Petrides, Director of Gaming APAC, Plantronics. “We listen to the gaming community and strive to continue delivering what gamers want. Ultimately, this has led us to be the undisputed market leader in gaming headsets for Australia.* We look forward to the RIG 700 series being a fan favourite too.” Peter added.
“Lightweight comfort and wireless design are two must-haves we consistently hear gamers are looking for in their favourite gaming headset,” said Corey Rosemond, Global Director, Marketing and Business Development at Poly. “Not only does RIG 700 Series answer that call, but it also brings competitive gamers the audio precision they crave, and endurance build that they need to rack-up their wins and get totally immersed in gameplay.”
RIG 700 Series, available in HX, HS and HD editions, includes performance-boosting features, such as:
- Game/Chat Balance Dial: You’ll never have to choose between “too loud” and “too quiet.” Dial in the perfect balance for your play style
- Adjustable Mic Monitoring: Hear exactly what your team hears, so the only times you’re yelling are when you’re winning
