Conclusion: Final Thoughts This headset is very functional and performs well. It is also priced pretty reasonably so seems ideal for lots of people. However there are a few flaws, for starters there is not much control over the sound that you hear – you have a volume control and a mic mute switch and that is it. There are no options to change the bass or any other levels.
Pros: Plug and Play with one USB cable, Nice tone and sound quality, A natural sounding bass while maintaining crisp voice, Good price, Soft headband making it very comfortable to wear
Cons: There are better surround sound headphones out there (but not for this price), Remote doesn’t allow you to adjust sound balance
Summary: The sound from the Gamecom 777 7.1 is very good, with crisp highs and good bass, and has a good energy to it. In stereo mode, the headphones sound absolutely great for music listening. Throwing the switch on the included USB soundcard adapter is when things start to go awry, as positional sound is not very convincing most of the time. Everything sounds more spatial, but just not very directional.
Summary: The Plantronics GameCom 777 provides excellent sound for anyone who plays bass-heavy games such as first-person shooters. While we do wish that its surround sound was a bit more effective, it excels in the most important categories: audio and mic fidelity. At $109, the GameCom is a little pricey, but if they fit your head properly, they're certainly worth the asking price.
Pros: Great overall sound, Deep bass, Excellent microphone, Easy-to-adjust volume slider
Cons: Lacks portability, Can get uncomfortable after extended use, Dolby surround sound adapter not all that effective.
Excerpt: Hardcore gamers know the importance of quality sound when they are playing online or during gaming tournaments. Plantronics has always had their back and their new GameCom 777 headset gives them Dolby 7.1 virtual surround to add depth and clarity to their gaming experience. The GameCom 777 features a lightweight frame, noise cancelling technology, and 7.1 sound to make any movie, Skype conversation, or gaming match sound like your in a virtual surround sound theater.
The Plantronics Gamecom 777 headphones are fantastic all around headphones with virtual surround effects that fall flat. I still very much liked my time with these headphones thanks to their comfort and overall sound quality; just don’t expect a real surround sound experience here and you will be happy.
Summary: So there you have it. The Plantronics GameCom 777 Surround Gaming Headset is pretty good, and has several features that make it a good choice for PC gamers and music lovers. The sound quality is above average for this price range, but doesn’t have extraordinary bass performance (in range and multi-wave reproduction).
If you just use plain stereo, either by using your own sound card, or switching off Dolby Headphone support, the headset is very good.
