post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

my trusty plantronic gamecom's finally broke and now i need a new set. i'm really thinking of getting theses with the zalman mic. i do plan on getting something like the titanium hd card down the road. would theses do good gaming with my onboard for the moment?

i've read alot of guys on here like them alot.

Nice to see someone else that had the gamecom.. I have the 777 and I really love it! ( teh usb sound card wire has to be held a certain way but that's ok ( they offered to sell one to me ) )

they lasted me along time to. almost went with the sameones you have,but i wanted to try something new. i owned 3 pairs of plantronic's . two pair of the dp550's and the ones i broke now. they also have a discontinued store to..look it up. sometimes you find great deals on gamecom's there

I use to own the 777's, bad build quality led to them snapping pretty quick. You'd love the audio quality upgrade with either the 555's or the AD700's and a sound card like the Asus Xonar DG man. The exact choice you wanna make just depends on a couple things:
What's your budget?
What is your primary use for the headset?
What type of music do you listen to?
