No matter if you're in the market for a wired headset, a wireless one, one for gaming on your PC
or to plug into a PS4
or Xbox One
controller - to quote the tagline for The X-Files
- The Choice is Out There. Or something. Anyway, the new RIG 700 HD from Plantronics is definitely the work of sci-fi as it manages to be an ultra-lightweight headset that's both comfortable and features great sound.
Those familiar with the RIG sound will be pleased to learn that the RIG 700 HD features the same excellent audio response seen in other headsets like the RIG 500 or RIG 800. This being distortion free and without an overly prominent emphasis placed on low or high frequencies. This balance allows for a simple plug-and-play approach without the need to tweak or fine tune settings.

That said, Plantronics has targeted a sub-$200 AUD price for the RIG 700 line and this means that one of the brand’s more notable partnerships – that being Dolby Atmos surround – is now a separate purchase. This doesn’t mean that the RIG 700s don’t support surround sound out of the box, you’ll just have to make do with Windows Sonic surround. Which, in case you’re wondering, does a pretty good job of virtual headset surround.
