GAMER-FRIENDLY, BUT LAG­GING

Australian T3 - - TESTED -

PLANTRONICS RIG 800HS $218, plantronics.com

Plantronics has pedi­gree, so this should de­liver, right? Wire­less strength is com­mend­able, an­gu­lar gamer de­sign is on point (with an on­board team chat/game au­dio mixer if you’re us­ing it on the PS4) and some con­ces­sion has been made to com­fort. But not enough. The self-ad­just­ing headband, à la the Arc­tis line, doesn’t dis­trib­ute the weight as well as its ri­val, and the mesh-cov­ered cups are tight. The sound is also a let­down: while there’s a good rum­ble, it’s hol­low, and the mic is lack­ing.
