The Plantronics Rigs headset can be used in a number of ways.

Being a stereo headset naturally you can listen to your music as well as link it to your smartphone to answer calls and wear them while you’re playing your games – usually all at the same time.

The onboard mixer lets users control what they’re listening to with the twin sliders and to take a call with one touch.

Plantronics Rig also has an interchangeable mic so you can switch from the noise-cancelling boom that you use for your gaming to the inline mic with mute, call and music control when you’re on the move.

And no matter how you play your games – it works with smartphones, tablets, Mac, PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4 (with an optical cable – sold separately).
