Plantronics Showcases New Xbox Headsets

Headset manufacturer Plantronics trotted out three new gaming focused headsets yesterday geared for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox video game systems. The new GameCom X30 ($29.99) and GameCom X10 ($19.99) will be available this month, while the GameCom X20 ($19.99) will be available in July.

The GameCom X30 and GameCom X20, said Plantronics, are designed with the Xbox 360 in mind. Both are lightweight and boast flexible, ear-melding designs. The GameCom X10 is designed for the Xbox and uses a traditional over-the-head style. All three headsets offer noise-canceling microphones to reduce background noise and feature inline volume and mute controls.

“Gamers have told us that they want discreet headsets that provide precise voice without overpowering the actual game audio,” said Renee Niemi, vice president of Mobile and Entertainment at Plantronics, in a statement. “The new GameCom headsets deliver on this and, equally important, give gamers a choice when it comes to headset wearing styles, color schemes and price.”
