PLANTRONICS GameCom 380 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Over the ear headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Update from my Previous review 05/01/2014

This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom 380 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Over the ear headset

Pros: Still sounds better than I would imagine

Cons: Very uncomfortable, The sound adjustment button on the headset is too sensitive. The mic isn't a noise cancelling headset.

Other Thoughts: I took an egg from my previous review as I couldn't update the old one. The headset is very uncomfortable especially after a few hours. The mic picks up everything, not clearly but as a high pitched squeaking sound or is too low without mic boost.

Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150200000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sound is crisp and clear. Voice modulation is fun. Music has never sound better.

Cons: Installation was a little more complicated than it should have been. Like others mentioned it doesn't sit flush in my motherboard but still works fine after it's in. The connections need to be adjusted by twisting the cables of my mic before it works.

Other Thoughts: While the card sounds great. Scout mode doesn't work that well in a few games. Installation and cable issue are also a slight problem. Not something I would expect from a sound card. Still It works where it counts.

PLANTRONICS GameCom 380 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Over the ear headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The sound and mic quality is impressive especially for the price. Material feels solid if that's any indication of build quality.

Cons: The comfort level isn't that great. the ear cups are a little small and the headset itself is a little tight; granted it is new and they haven't been broken in yet.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had time to properly test these but games, music and movies sound decent and that's coming from the integrated sound card. While I don't love the comfort (coming from a corsair vengeance 1500) This is a steal at $50 hopefully they hold up over time and they break in well. Will update over time if any issues occur.
