Plantronics RIG 500HD - headset is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nyxie from Awesome fitI was using Plantronics GameCom 388, really nice headset with one minus, it was too heavy and with long usage my ears would hurt. Recently swapped to RIG 500 HD, light headset with much better mic and audio, can't find any minus beside volume controll on headset, and mic mute option, but not that necessary so still 5/5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stupidhead from Honestly fantasticI bought these three years ago. They've held up with aggressive use, and are starting to tear at the cord from poor cable management. If I could take better care of them they'd honestly last another two at least. I appreciate that all of the parts that can fail are modular, but the fact that the 7.1 sound card isn't manufactured anymore is a huge letdown. The only drawback from these is the microphone, it doesn't seem to actually cancel out any background noise at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scarecrow3000 from Really great headset for price rangeThis is a great headset for the price range. I've had mine for a few months now and have enjoyed the experience. - Very light weight and comfortable.- Great sound, normal bass but can be boosted by rig software, would of like better bass.- Above average noise cancellation though mic is very sensitive and I must use push to talk in games otherwise gamers can here me breathing.- Not physical drivers for surround sound but still does a great job.- 3.5mm jack connection design tends to get stuck on my desk edge when I lean forward over my desk.I would recommend this product to my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LostnProud from Awesome headset!I owned a RIG500HX for my Xbox one and I absolutely loved it! So I bought the RIG500HD for my PC and it is just as great. Super light weight you can sit with it on for hours and not feel the weight or the ear cups. Plus the sound quality is really good, and I can say that because I own Beats studio 2, Denon studio cans, and a pair of Bose sound link head phones. For gaming the RIG500HD has quickly become my favorite. The full surround sound they output due to the USB interface HD remote makes my games just that much better. Also the price is right on par with many other high end brand gaming headphone cans. Plus if anything breaks the headphones are modular so you can just order the part(s) you need or want to change out.
