Commander Reporting for Duty

Christmas is right around the corner and it seems like Plantronics decided that it’s also the perfect time to ship us a new headset to review! While normally we’d grunt at the thought of more work during the holiday season, Plantronics sent us a real treat this time around, and we were more than happy to put it through its paces.

Today we’ll be reviewing Plantonics’ newest product to their GameCom series of gaming headsets – the Plantronics GameCom Commander. Last time, we reviewed the Plantronics GameCom 780 and we were overall very impressed with what it had to offer for the price. Say hello then to the GameCom Commander, Plantronics’ recently introduced, top-of-the-line (aka most bad-ass) gaming headset and they certainly went all out with this one. This limited edition gaming headset includes “Tournament ready” passive noise isolation, 40mm drivers with an extended frequency response, a noise cancelling microphone, a USB sound card, laser etched unique serial identification, and a carrying case.

With the briefing out of the way, let’s see how the Commander performs on the field.
