What customers say about "Key Specs"
Plantronics RIG 500 PRO HX Xbox One
  • Bought about a week ago, and these things are perfect fit with easy adjustable headband.
  • The boom mic is flexible but sturdy, and thankfully removable.
  • I prefer to use a standalone mic on my desk, and being able to stow the boom mic in a drawer is handy.
  • It has a removable mic which I like as sometimes I prefer to use a freestanding mic when using with my PC.
  • I like the self adjusting headband which keeps the headset snug and they don’t move around without the need to adjust the size.
Plantronics RIG 500 PRO HC Headset
  • Adjust the top head strap, the set fit absolutely perfect once I did.
  • Both the ear-cups and headband were comfortable and easily adjustable if needed.
  • The headset is very easy to adjust to your head by simply popping off the speakers and snapping them on in the other positions.
  • They are very light and utilise the usual plantronics 3 size adjustment settings.
  • The sound is great, it fits neatly and easy adjustable headband.

What customers say about "Headset"
Plantronics RIG 500 PRO HX Xbox One
  • Have great sound, and looks good as well. Would highly recommend.
  • The sound is a natural, high quality and for as loose as they feel, they have a nice grip that fits perfectly over the head and ears.
  • Clear driving sounds if someone is coming from behind you you can tell where they are coming from.
  • The perfect balance between the highs and lows makes for great audio.
  • I wish there was an option to have more bass as it really seems flat.

What customers say about "Features"
Plantronics RIG 500 PRO HX Xbox One
  • I like the fact you can flip the mic up to mute your voice instead of feeling around for a pesky mute button.
  • Having the volume controls at the controller is really great.
  • I'm running these on my PC, sounds amazing with Dolby Atmos. Highly recommend!
  • The flip to mute feature of the microphone is a great feature and saves you having to turn the mic off in the Xbox Audio settings.
  • The mic part you have to flick up to mute it became loose and now the mic only works in certain positions.
Plantronics RIG 500 PRO HC Headset
  • With the added bonus of having Dolby Atmos as part of the package, Dolby Atmos compatible games and videos sound great.
  • The RIG 500 pro headset is awesome the flip mic is a great feature all headsets should be using this.
  • The volume dial is so much more easier to use than volume buttons.
  • On top of the great quality headset they thrown in dolby atmos code and extra ear cups.
  • My only negative is the cable, I would of preferred if it was braided and longer.
