Plantronics RIG Headset Review

Plantronics are a notable name in audio devices since the companies foundation way back in 1961. In the early days it made headsets for airlines, nowadays, well they still make headsets for almost every purpose. Today I am taking a look at just one of these. The Plantronics RIG.

The Plantronics RIG stereo headset and mixer is a headset with an interesting feature. It comes with a mixer which is not a big thing in itself, but this mixer differs in that it allows you to connect a secondary audio devices such as mobile phones or an additional music source. You can then mix this audio into your headset. In Plantronics’ rather cheesy video they show a user taking a call whilst in game, switching back and forth between the modes. You know what, I will let you watch it as well.

It’s a headset that has been designed for every major console, though they do not include the cable for connecting it to a PS4. Whilst you can also connect it up to smartphones and tablets just as easily. It comes with two different detachable microphones (one in-line and one on a boom) so lets take a closer look.
