E3 2014: The Plantronics Rig, Dolby 7.1 enhanced


When first reviewing the Rig last year, I absolutely wished that it came with surround sound. Such a well designed headset, without 7.1 surround was just a travesty. Now, to be release in Q3 of this year, the Rig Surround for PC will be hitting shelves with the quality that gamers love. RIG RIG Surround
