During E3 2016, Plantronics announced a brand new line of headsets for their RIG-series. The new line-up includes the RIG 800 series, the first wireless gaming headsets with up to 24-hour battery life.

The RIG 800 series comes in two different models, one for the Xbox One (RIG 800HX) and PlayStation 4 (RIG 800HS). Both of the headsets feature 40mm drivers, in-built controls and equalisers and are lightweight and durable.


“At Plantronics, we understand the importance of providing gamers with tangible benefits that make them better players,” said Peter Petrides, Director of Gaming Products with Plantronics ANZ. “The RIG 800 series is designed for superior wireless performance and unmatched playtime combined with lightweight comfort and precision controls. As gamers ourselves, we strive to develop products for a whole range of player styles and needs. This is reflected in our extensive lineup of RIG headsets.”

Both the headsets will run for 1.5 hours per 30 minute charge which is pretty good and will cost $249.95 RRP when it hits stores this September 2016. You can check out the reveal video below:
