Customer Reviews of Plantronics GameCom 377 Open-Ear Gaming Headset
Good noise reduction. Cable seems strong. Fits well, easy to use for hours without hurting your ears. It's a little heavier than I expected, but doesn't feel it when you wear it. Good mic. Used daily for hours by a 13 & 15 year old and they really like it.
Sweet and Soft6/19/2012
Comfy on the head, adjusts nicely. Microphone tucking in helps keep it from breaking off which ive done on an occasion or two. Volume dial is cool but impsssible to read in the dark so have to go off feel
Great for gaming...6/11/2012
This headset is VERY comfortable. I've worn them for 3-4 hours at a time with no discomfort at all. Sound quality is great as well. Nice clarity and presence. My friends tell me the mic is loud and clear. Voices sound like they're right there in the room with you. I hear things in games that I didn't with my old headset that cost more.
This headset is sweet. the design is flawless and the sounds are game worthy. very heavily padded so even if you mistakenly sit on it, IT DOESN'T BREAK. yeah, these headphones get the job done alright. Plantronics are awesome with their intelligent creativity.
When I first got these headsets, I was kinda expecting something along the lines of the Turtle Beach headset that I bought a few years ago. But they're relatively similar. They lack the bass that most gaming headsets have, but this headset provides everything that one would need. For a desktop these might prove to be a little difficult to use, but for a laptop, the wire is great. Not the best, but for the price, great.
Not As Pictured !3/29/2011
I bought these headsets in a rush with 2-day delivery , but when I got them they were not as pictured, instead of being mesh on the cushions it was fur. Talked to Customer Rep and they said I would have to talk to the manufacturers.
great for pc gaming1/20/2011
I got these on cyber monday and for the price I paid they did not disappoint. The sound is great and the over-the-ear design is awesome. These are padded around the ears so they do not hurt the ears unlike the other designs where the padding presses directly against the ears. The cord isn't as short as is pictured in the product but isn't super long either, although there's plenty of room when plugged into the front panel audio jacks of my pc. The mic can swing down from a slot in the headband and in addition the boom is extendable. If the boom is extended it doesn't swing fully back into the slot in the headband, which is a minor annoyance but it is still able to swing up out of the way when needed.
Good buy, good product1/18/2011
Not sure how the gameplay, graphics and difficulty play into this rating since they're headphones, but overall, a good headset for all-around gaming. Good mic quality and better sound quality. Very comfortable on my head. I like the soft padded ear cups (don't get too hot or sweaty) and the depth between the ear cup and the speaker is very comfortable for me. A lot comes down to your ear size. This is so far the only one that I can wear for any length of time and still be comfortable. Others have made my ears hurt after 30 minutes.
very nice headphones12/28/2010
I use them for gaming as well as just watching videos or movies now. these things are super comfy! you will not be disappointed at all.
BEST bang for the BUCK!12/28/2010
can't go wrong with plantronics. this thing has awesome 3d sound, excellent voice quality mic, and such deep bass for a headset. puts all others to shame. atleast at this price. i use it on my PC for my black ops, modern warfare, and bad company2. perfect for my tasks.
Unlike those using this for gaming, I purchased primarily for use with Google Voice and webinars. While they are a little bulky, they are comfortable, and the sound quality is above average.
I got this when it was selling for 19,99 free shipping. Couldnt get better than that. Works flawlessly on my gaming laptop, playing guitar hero world tour via hdmi to my 40 inch tv. These headphones are amazing sound quality top notch my mic was recognized the moment i put it in. very comfortable to wear. Sturdy
Good value headset12/21/2010
This headset works as advertised and is a very good value via Buy.com (under $20). The sound could be more robust, but it is pretty good for a full-featured headset at this price. I have had no problems after 4 weeks of use. It is too early to tell how the earpiece material will hold up, but I think it will be fine. (More of a suede instead of a leather) Again, for gamers, at this price, you can't go wrong.
Does not work with Xbox Live12/10/2010
I read all of the reviews and the people who said this will work with Xbox Live are incorrect. First of all, this has a 3.5mm plug, and the Xbox 360 Controller uses a 2.5mm jack. So, I ordered an adapter and 3 days later, tried to use it. No sound. Nothing. Did not work, people could not hear me.
I just got these, plugged them in and started playing my favorite games, The sound quality is amazing. They are surprisingly comfortable and not to heavy despite there size. I would recommend these to anone who loves playing FPS game, you can hear everything perfect. I read a lot of reviews before buying these most people said that the mic annoyed them, I have had headsets with the mic on both sides, the only thing is the mic on these is far away, it still can detect my voice great though so I don't mind. That's really the only thing I can think of thats wrong with these. Oh, the cord isn't as long as most headsets, which is great for me because I use the plugs on the back of my keyboard for the headsets. For the people who say it needs more bass, these have the most bass I've ever heard on any headphones I've used. 5/5.
These headphones are great. Not sure why the review includes "graphics" "difficulty" and "gameplay". Maybe I can see gameplay because it is audio. I can only complain about a few items and they may mean nothing to others. The mic tucks away nicely into the headphones, however, it is on the left side. All my past headsets have had the mic on the right, its a little odd that they wouldn't stick with what everyone else is doing. They are BIG! not really heavy but you can definitely feel them on your head. You look like you should be landing planes. The sound is amazing though, at first I thought they sounded muffled until the action started happening. They have a much fuller range of sound than my past headphones. You get more of a punch as they respond to lower frequencies. Booms go BOOM! The padding could have been made from different material. I find myself getting hot wearing them, they make me want to turn up my AC a notch.
