We show you the Plantronics Gamecom 780 7.1 surround sound PC gaming headphones in this episode! Powered by Dolby technology, the Gamecom 780 delivers 7.1 surround sound with Dolby Headphone and Dolby Pro Logic IIx. The speakers in the earcups are 40-millimeter and provide thumping bass and immersive stereo sound. For chat and in-game communication, there's a built-in noise-canceling microphone that eliminates background noise so that the people you're playing with can hear you clearly, and for those times when you want silence (or when you want to remain stealthy,) there are volume controls and a microphone mute switch right on the earcups. One other nice touch is the swiveling earcup joints that make for easy storage. You can pick up the Plantronics GameCom 780 on Amazon for $79.

It would appear that Plantronics Discovery 975 has gone for the classy crowd rather than the typical guys who just want the cheapest Bluetooth headset available.
With noise cancellation, wind protection, a nice carrying case, and loopless ear fitting, it looks like it would adorn the ear of the highest of classes, while maintaining the semi-affordable price of $130. You can pick one up over at Amazon.
