This review is from: Plantronics GameCom 780 Stereo Corded Headset Recreational Comfortable Design
Pros: This pair of headphones lasted me a little over a year. It does come with a few flaws, but with proper care, it could last you a long time.
+Great sound quality
+Button on the side to turn on 7.1 surround sound (which sounds amazing in games, especially in FPS)
+Great price for value
+Very very comfortable, nice squishy ear cushions that are made from a type of cloth instead of rubber or plastic so it doesn't stick to your head after a while of use
+Cord is very strong and I love the red color
Cons: Now, it does have some flaws. Like I said, with proper care and use of the headset like putting it away properly, not throwing it and stuff, it will last a while.
-The headband is made of a cheapish plastic, so it is easy to break. About 8 months of ownership, one side of the headband snapped. I glued and duct tapped it together and it lasted me another couple of months like that, but not as tight as it was before. Eventually, the other side broke and I decided to get a new pair of headphones.
-The 7.1 surround sound isn't real, it's digitized (or something like that). Windows only recognizes it as 5.1, but to me I don't really know the difference too much. Audiophiles might be disappointed at this.
-The cord is not attachable, so you need to be careful. I did say that the cord is strong but it's not as strong as steal, so be careful if it's on the ground and you accidentally run it over with your chair.
Other Thoughts: Overall, great product, it lasted me forever and it's pretty cheap. Anyone looking for a cheap but good product, choose this.READ FULL REVIEW
