users of trackir will find it difficult to mount the track ir pro clip as the band is too narrow and long, I had to slightly modify the pro clip mount it firmly and in place

Tom,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sound and mic quality is good, especially for the price.
Bad points:
Can get slightly uncomfortable after wearing for several hours, in fairness though I'm yet to find a headset I find comfortable after that length of time.

Windows 8 drivers are a pain to find and setup, they're not auto-detected and the Plantronics site doesn't have them (tip: install the Win 7 drivers in compatibility mode).

Simon, Cirencester Audiophile

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money.
Nice design.
Decent sound quality.
Bad points:
NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 8. Absolutely inexcusable. Generally Windows 7 drivers will work with Windows 8, but the drivers specifically are blocked from being installed on Windows 8 which is ridiculous. I was able to get it to work by disabling Driver Signing and manually copying the driver .INF file, but still really really a bad point.

Manufacturer's Description

The Plantronics GameCom 780 USB headset with Dolby technologies transforms standard audio into a stunning 7.1 surround sound experience. The noise-cancelling microphone kills background noise so your commands are loud and clear. When you need to take a break, built-in spin joints let the earpods lay flat for easy storage. Need to adjust volume? No problem. The controls are right on the earpods so you’ll always have your eyes on the game. The GameCom 780 is built to last with superhero-strength cords and joints; ultra-comfortable ear cushions and headband let you stay in the game for as long as it takes.
