E3 Expo – Booth #515

At this year’s E3 Expo, Plantronics Gaming will be offering a sneak peek at a new product, along with showcasing its premium audio solutions that deliver gamers a competitive advantage. The company will also provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with key gaming and audio partners. Visitors to the Plantronics Gaming booth ( South Hall – Booth #515) will be among the first to experience the yet-to-be-released RIG Surround headset, featuring Dolby® Surround 7.1.

RIG Surround is performance audio for gamers at its best. Developed by the creators of the GameCom 780, the best-selling wired PC gaming headset for 2013 (NPD) 1, RIG performance audio delivers gamers the winning advantage of hearing rivals before spotting them. The RIG headset delivers epic audio performance, with precision stereo, crystal-clear voice and three EQ profiles, including Seismic mode, allowing players to feel the bass. The RIG headset features breakthrough bass tube technology, driving accurate and powerful low-octave audio without distortion of critical mid and high frequency audio cues essential to gamers. With the included audio controller, you can create and control your mix of side-chat, preferred soundtrack or calls layered onto game sound, and switch your mic feed between the game and your mobile device.

At the Plantronics Gaming booth, attendees will experience games as they’ve never heard them before with the full range of Plantronics Gaming audio solutions. They will be able to hear the improvements made to the popular GameCom line of headsets that have recently been refreshed. Attendees can also get hands-on with RIG and experience the difference performance audio makes when used with the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One gaming and entertainment systems.
