“At Plantronics, we’ve been working with a variety of VR accessories and game developers to create audio solutions that can be worn comfortably while delivering the positional audio queues critical for VR,” said Jack Reynolds, Director of Gaming Products with Plantronics. “We’re excited to begin previewing our RIG 4VR solution due out this fall.”
Along with interchangeable cables for use with PlayStation VR and the DualShock 4 wireless controllers, RIG 4VR features 40mm drivers paired with low-frequency resonators for enhanced bass while maintaining accuracy of sounds. The removable flip-to-mute boom with noise-cancelling mic can be attached when using the headset with a controller, offering immersive stereo audio and exceptionally clear chat.

A member of the critically-acclaimed Plantronics RIG 500 series, the RIG 4VR is constructed with an ultra-light, super-flexible frame and modular components for extraordinary comfort. A unique oval earcup design means it fits comfortably while in use with wearable displays like the PlayStation VR headset. And because the earcups allow in some ambient sound, it helps players maintain natural balance during VR sessions. A vented design also makes it possible for in-room conversations during social VR gaming experiences and provides greater heat dissipation so players stay comfortable when marathon gaming.
