The other day my SpeedLink Headset died. The ear-buds worked fine but the mic, had bitten the dust! As someone who uses TeamSpeak as a way to chat to friends more than for gaming a headset is essential and when I saw the Plantronics GameCom Headset for £18.99 from my local computer shop, I thought lets go get them and this time I remembered to do an unboxing video for you!
Unboxing / Sound Test
Check out the Unboxing Below…
Ok so the sound quality is fairly good I have heard better but also have heard worse! The sound I believe does lack a little on the bass side and I have heard clearer but overall for under £20 you cant expect the best! The over the ear design helps lock out a lot of exterior noise as well which is great but if your not used to this style you may find them a little odd at first.
The Mic quality is ok again not brilliant but I think that is partially due to the fact that the noise cancelling on the mic isn’t great and it easily pics up the “hum” of my computer. Also the mic sits a couple of inches away from my mouth so it seems to be a little quieter than my old Speedlink that sat right in front of my mouth. But, you decide! Towards the end of my Unboxing video I have linked the mic up to the PC and you can have a listen!
The Build Quality isn’t bad at all. It doesn’t feel really cheap but it isn’t an expensive feeling either. It does feel like the headset is built to with-stain some punishment but not a lot. For under £20 you aren’t really going to get much better.
Well so far I can’t make much of a judgement I have only used the headset for about a day but will update this post with any developments. If there is no update assume all is well!
