Today we are looking at the GamCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound PC gaming headset from Plantronics. This headset has been on the market for a number of months now, and the general consensus from reviewers tends to be positive.

This headset integrates a noise-cancelling microphone, which allows your voice to be heard clearly during multiplayer games (by cancelling out any background noise). This can make a big difference to your teammates if you do a lot of online gaming. The other major feature is the virtual surround sound (courtesy of Dolby technology). You’ll need to install the GameCom software to utilise this feature, but it aims to create a directional listening experience, rather than standard stereo audio.

We put both of these selling points to the test in this review, so read on to find out what we think…
