Summary: I bought this head set about 6 months ago. Worked great for that long, then a little crackle, lower volume then the sound cuts out completly forcing me to unplug it and plug it back in evry 5 mins to get it working. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Summary: Worked great until the plastic just above where the left ear attaches to the headset snapped 10 months after I got it. Plastic on the other side appears to be breaking as well. Cannot recommend and will look elsewhere for my next headset purchase.
Summary: As headphones go the GameCom 780's are nothing special in audio terms. Slightly sibilant in the high frequencies and somewhat muddied low frequency response. In Dolby (surround) mode the soundscape is not in the least bit dimensionally accurate.
Pros: Sound is acceptable and the headphones are reasonably comfortable--well until they break.
Cons: The design of the headband s such that it is not if, but when. The when being when the cheap plastic headband snaps. The headband will snap in the exact same place as it has for hundreds, if not thousands of users. Once the plastic snaps--sure you can hand the headphones off the top of your head,...
Summary: -- update: Tuesday, January 06, 2015 -- they denied my review on their site and an official email was dispatched saying i needed to read their review guidelines.
Pros: sound quality
Cons: Day one, I stream to twitch and hitbox so when i got these i was happy with the sound and recording quality. I noticed that the volume control placed behind the ear would rattle with the slightest head movement. two other streamer friends confirmed the same issue. plantronics warranty department ...
Summary: Let me start by saying that the reason I bought these was to replace a set of MW3 surround sound headsets that gave up the ghost. First, the box says you will have 6.5 feet of cord. Well, I'm not quite 6 feet, and with this headset on, the cord doesn't reach my knees!
Summary: Ridiculous how easily these break! The most vital point on the headset (where pressure is applied) is not re-inforced! Horrible design. PS - I am a huge plantronics fan - best sound out there. Burned twice by them now, you'd think I'd learn. DON'T BUY, WILL BREAK!
Pros: Plantronics has the best sound (highs and lows)
Cons: 6 months in, SNAP goes the plastic. This happened on my GEN 1 770 also, thought they'd fix it with the 780... NOPE!!! Ridiculous
Summary: First time ever using anything from Plantronics and feeling very discouraged to ever look at their products again. I want quality products that will last, not break within a year.
Pros: Great sound, and very comfortable headset.
Cons: I take great care of my headsets so that they will last me a long time. My last headset was a Turtlebeach and lasted me well over 4 years. So a little less than 8 months I go to put them on and SNAP! The plastic right where the headband felt meets snaps.
