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. Since all surround is interpolated from a 2-channel stereo source, then...
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.

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).
Excerpt: Despite being a well established company in the audio market, Plantronics are a relatively new player in the gaming audio arena.

Pros: Dolby USB sound card, Sound, Mic, Long Cable
Summary: We like the the GameCom 777 — for its price, it's an excellent bit of kit with good sound quality and a booming rumble on the bass end.

Summary: Das neue GameCom 777 7.1 wird anspruchsvolle Gamer sofort überzeugen können. Plantronics neustes Headset bietet einen sehr guten 7.1 Dolby-Surround-Sound, eine exzellente Sprachqualität sowie einen hervorragenden Tragekomfort.
