From the Manufacturer
The headset's lightweight but durable construction keeps you comfortable even after extended wear. View larger.
Enjoy true 7.1 surround sound by plugging the jacks into the included Dolby USB sound card. View larger.
Today's games are more cinematic than ever, and having the right audio experience is critical. Using the GameCom 777 Surround Sound Gaming Headset featuring Dolby Headphone Technology allows you to play the game they way the developers intended for it to be experienced.
7.1 Dolby Headphone technology gives you the surround effects of a seven speaker setup by using digital signal processing and electronically simulating seven virtual speakers in a virtual room. What this means for you is that you'll experience true surround sound that feels more natural and "out of head." And what this means for your opponents is that they'd better watch out because with this headset, you'll know exactly where they're lurking at every moment.
To experience the full Dolby Surround Sound experience, simply plug the GameCom 777's microphone and headphone jacks into the Dolby USB sound card. But if necessary, you also have the option of listening in full stereo (non-surround) using the analog connection.
Comfort for Your All-Night Gaming Sessions
Even during an all-night gaming session, the GameCom 777 will stay comfortable, thanks to a lightweight frame that redistributes pressure and prevents fatigue. Specially designed earpods help redistribute pressure for maximum comfort, and the headset's open-ear design lets sound in, so you can still stay connected to your surroundings during your gameplay.
But don't let the lightweight design fool you. Plantronics developed the GameCom 777 with a military-grade design and extra-strength cables, so even if you take out your gaming frustrations on it, it'll keep on performing.
Concealed, Noise-Canceling Microphone
A hidden mic boom swings down when you need to communicate with others, whether it is to coordinate a midnight raid on a town or simply to talk trash. Featuring noise-canceling technology, you'll be heard loud and clear no matter what is going on around you. As an added benefit, the hidden boom doesn't get in the way of your food or drink while you're gaming, and with it hidden you won't look like you're a call center operator.
For the ultimate in convenience, the headset also has in-line volume adjustment and mic-mute controls, so you can make adjustments on the fly without having to fiddle with your computer's on-screen controls, saving you time.
About Dolby Headphone Technology
Dolby Headphone technology creates an immersive gameplay environment, allowing listeners to hear every window smash, feel every explosion, and experience every wipeout as if it's really happening. Adding another dimension to the playing environment, Dolby Headphone technology gives gamers a competitive advantage, allowing them to better pinpoint enemies and obstacles that aren't even onscreen. Dolby Headphone technology also improves listening comfort, preventing "listener fatigue" that often accompanies the typical 2-channel stereo headphone experience.
The Plantronics GameCom 777 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is backed by a one-year warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
Doing some research, these ones came up pretty frequently. And then I saw the price here on Amazon and I jumped on it.
It's worth every cent and then some.
The headset is quite comfortable with all that padding. They sit lightly on your head and don't feel like they're crushing you like a vise. I've worn them comfortably throughout a Left 4 Dead 2 Versus match lasting a couple hours.
The mic clarity is good, I've received no complaints about static or background noise.
I'm no sound snob, so I can't say if the sound quality is amazing or shoddy. I can just tell you I have no complaints there.
The little in-line volume control/mic mute dongle works quite well. Also, the volume control is an analog dial that appears to directly affect the sound as it comes up the wire, as opposed to changing your computer's volume settings, like some headsets do.
Finally, the vaunted simulated Surround Sound. Some reviews I read said this feature was sham, but I find it actually does work. It's not immediately obvious as if you had surround sound speakers, but if you have a constant sound source in game, and you turn in circles, the sound will circle around you if you pay close enough attention. You're only paying $60 for this thing, instead of a speaker set-up, with wires, and a sound card. I'd say that's pretty damn good.
Bottom Line: Totally worth the money. Not as good as true surround sound, but it works and it's very reasonably priced.
"Got these headphones to replace another pair of Plantronics headphones my dog destroyed, and I am very pleased. They are light, comfortable, the surround sound feature seems to work (in Call of Duty: Black Ops at least). The one complaint i have is that they are not that loud in surround or stereo mode. If you looking for quality sound, light weight, and has a mic...this is you best bet, especially for the price. If you want headphones that are so loud your fillings come loose, look elsewhere."
Now after several months of using them i am returning them. The sound quality which impressed me at first has grown to be lack luster. On ventrilo, everyone tells me that i sound muffled, and with an echo. i am returning these for a credit towards a pair of Logitech wireless headphones. Another issue is that the USB adapter is very small and has a little notch in the bottom to store the very short USB wire. this has caused a terrible short in the wire that i suspect was there from day one, because i never put the wire back in that little slot again. As i said i got these to replace another pair of plantronics headphones, and I've grown to be disappointed. I don't think i will be buying from them any more.
All that said, 5-stars to Amazon for a no-questions asked return.
- It is sturdier than the Arena, and bulkier. In fact it is a very big gaming headset.
- It does not need to install a big deal of software, in fact it doesnt even have a cd with installation drivers. The Arena had a lot of Creative Software for different purposes like voice modding, EQ and other stuff. It is just plug and play.
- It comes with a mic and headphone jacks, for Stereo sound. Plug those two on the Dolby USB sound card for a "virtual" 7.1 sourround sound. It sounds better but I just dont really hear the sourround sound like the Arena.
- it doesnt blow your mind with its volume, and I could say it kinda low, even thou it doesnt hurt your hearing. Some people might prefer a higher volume level, so keep that in mind.
- Its not sound cancelling, so you can hear what someone by your side is saying. The Arena do cancel sound and my wife hated it when she wanted to talk to me and I didnt realized so.
- I havent tried the mic yet, so I cant give a proper review of it... yet. (Ill update when I do so).
- Like other reviewers said, it tend to clamp your head a bit, specially in the lower part of the speakers, near the jaw area, not a big deal but big headed guys could find that really uncomfortable. In that matter the Arena is really more comfortable.
All in all, as I said, its a good but not great gaming surround headset. Got em on the cheap side ($50 at the moment) Bulkier, a bit clamping, and you can hear what people say next to you. If you want more comfy and booming headsets, and have the money for it, look for other alternatives, this is an OK product.
I ordered these after trying them out from a friend who owned these already. I only got several minutes of demo time but it caught my attention and I needed to get my own pair. I got it from Amazon (Hence the review) since it was cheapest on here. I use these headphones exclusively when I don't want to disturb others/be disturbed when playing computer games and listening to music; also, for web chatting for programs like Skype.
Use in General:
The USB adapter for the 5.1 Surround sound works great as a plug-in for the headset. Especially since my laptop doesn't support a dedicated port for both the mic and headset, instead has a single 3.5mm port for headsets/ear buds with a built in mic. The controller is also great, however the volume adjuster can be a bit ambiguous since there is really no clear indicator to what level you set it and where the maximum setting is. (The knob has a single line slit that matches up with the lowest setting indicated by a small dot, but that's it.) The hand controls also have a mute switch for the mic there. It is also padded at the top and cushions provide a lot of comfort.
Use with Gaming:
As advertised it is a gaming headset, however it could be better. For me it's all I need. Games sound great and explosions sound great. However the "Virtual" 5.1 seems a bit lacking to me. I do notice a difference when I turn it on for gaming, but not that much. However I bought it not for this feature, but because I found the quality I needed in a headset. The mic retracts perfectly down and angles itself just right to perfectly for my teammates/friends in game.
Use with Music:
This was the reason I bought it for really. Music sounds great.Read more ›
