In need of a new headset? Better yet, in need of an awesome headset? Well, Plantronics is in a giving mood and they want the readers of Gaming Blend to be one of the first to get their hands on the upcoming RIG, a headset that comes with a built-in mixer that allows you to do some really awesome stuff.
So let's get a few of the really important details out there first of all: the Plantronics RIG is compatible with today's generation of home consoles, PCs and Macs. If you're a core gamer looking for a high-quality headset for your mid-day, early morning or late night gaming sessions, the RIG has you covered. I can also attest from first-hand experience that Plantronics headsets give you quite bit of bang for your buck and they outlasted a pair of Tritton's and EcoBass headsets over the years.
What's more is that it's not just about meeting the status quo and providing gamers with just another headset. The RIG contains a really neat volume mixer that allows users to control the volume of the game they're playing while also opening up other neat possibilities, such as multi-tasking sound priorities. Yeah, that last one isn't even a lie.
The RIG's built-in mixer gives users the option to plug in a smartphone, so when someone is heavy into the game and an important call comes in, gamers can easily switch over without taking off the headset, meaning that you can still play and talk at the same time. Taking video game multi-tasking to the next level.
If you think that's all, though, you're wrong. It actually gets better. Music aficionados can stream music into their favorite games while the smartphone is attached using the mixer and the RIG also allows users to connect and chat using video stream technology like Skype, while you play. So you can play the games you love while keeping in contact and chatting it up with friends you like. It's like the perfect win-win combination of hardware and social networking meeting face to face, kissing a little bit and not going so far as to make it all awkward and stuff.
Anyway, the RIG is pretty awesome just based on that promo video above and the features that it comes packed with. Now if you're really digging this brand new headset and you can see how it could benefit you and your gaming lifestyle, we're giving you an opportunity to get your hands on a RIG... for free. Yep, you can get your hands on a brand new headset that's not even out yet.
