Plantronics has announced an exclusive partnership with Dolby to bring Dolby Atmos activation to RIG Gaming Headsets. The Plantronics RIG 400LX, RIG 600LX and the wireless RIG 800LX headphones will be bundled with codes to enable Dolby Atmos for headphones on Windows 10, Xbox One and Xbox Scorpio.
Peter Petrides, Director of Gaming for Plantronics ANZ has said:
“Since building the first modular gaming headset designed for the competitive player, we’ve challenged ourselves to explore how audio can improve gaming, whether it’s bringing gamers closer together or to the heart of the action. We believe that gamers who invest in next-gen graphics deserve next-gen sound, and Dolby’s mission to transform entertainment makes them the perfect partner to create that heightened experience.”
The range of headsets will be available Q4 2017 with additional Dolby Atmos enabled models to be announced later this year. Pricing for the above announced models are as follows: RIG800LX ($249 AUD), RIG600LX ($199 AUD) and RIG400LX ($149 AUD)
