    Plantronics unveiled its latest headset for professional gamers, the GameCom 780. The headset is probably scheduled to be launched at CES, but a presentation related to it was leaked to the web. The GameCom 780 is a large-sized over-the-ear headset with a rounded quadrilateral shape instead of round, the optimally fit the contours of the ears. While it's 2-channel, it features virtual 7.1-channel surround.

    It connects to the PC over USB, and packs a native logic that processes Dolby Headphone and Dolby Pro Logic IIx technologies. Each of the two cans features a 40 mm driver. The cans are suspended on hinges and can swivel to fold the headset up for transportation. The head band is thickly cushioned. The noise-cancelling microphone is suspended by a hinged-armature. The headset has a braided 2 m long USB cable.

    I've been using the Plantronics GameCom 367 for about a year now and have been realllllly satisfied with it. Best bang for your buck in my opinion. With these soon to be released, I just might be looking to upgrade.

    I LOVE the look of these.
    Very old-school :)

    This might just be one for me.

    I've been in the market for the GameCom 370. I might just hold a little longer for these.:)

    Have used Plantronics GameCom 367, and it is a great headset. But how the microphone is placed and how it works by pulling it up and down sucks ass, it breaks down easy and the mic is useless. So now when they have fixed the mic problem for 380 is good, maybe look into a new pair of headset when there is a review done in GameCom 380.
