Updated to Seven Point One

We originally tested the Gamecom 777 5.1 surround headset last year (read the review here) and performed rather well.  Plantronics has updated their headphones to support 7.1 surround, so today we’re going to look at the updated product, the Gamecom 777 7.1 Gaming Headset.

This open-eared headset with 7.1 Dolby Headphone technology gives you an unparalleled audio advantage that lets you hear your opponents before you see them. Connect with the Dolby USB sound card for a true 7.1 experience. But if needed, an analogue connection is also provided. Stay comfortable with a lightweight frame and specially designed ear pods that redistribute pressure. When you’re ready to fire off orders, unveil the hidden, noisecancelling mic boom to strategize clearly with team members. Responses coming in? Adjust audio levels using in-line volume and mic-mute controls.

• Dolby headphone technology delivers a virtual 7-channel audio experience
• Dolby USB sound card is the only way to get the 7.1 experience
• Open-ear design keeps you connected to the game and your surroundings
• Concealed mic boom stays hidden until you’re ready to use it
• Specially designed earpods redistribute pressure for maximum comfort
• In-line volume and mic-mute controls allow for easy audio adjustment
• Noise-cancelling microphone lets you communicate clearly
• Rugged, military-grade design and extra-strength cables make your hardware hardcore

On the next page we open the box and take a look at her goodies…

    Logitech's stuff is becoming more and more impressive to me. I used to think of them as the Walmart knockoff of gaming gear, but they're getting better all the time.

    WOW another reviewer makes another review on a "Gaming Headset" without talking about the number one reason a "Gamer" buys one. "HOW WAS THE DIRECTIONAL SOUND QUALITY" ie. can you tell from which direction the enemy is comming from and how does it work with the current available games [not just one]

    @Expired: As I mentioned in the review, there isn't a surround headset made that delivers obvious directional sound. If you want it to be apparent then you need a true 5.1 or 7.1 system.

    How would you rate these in relation to the g930s, all factors considered?
