Holiday Gift Guide: The Best and Coolest Gaming Gear of 2017

Most Hardcore Xbox One Gaming Headset: RIG 800LX

Most of the headsets we've looked at in 2017 feature 10-15 hours or some such similarly impressive number for a wireless unit. Plantronics however, blows all of them away in battery life witht he RIG 800LX. Designed for Xbox One, the RIG 800LX has a 24 hour battery which we still can't quite comprehend.

Amplified audio with matched 40 mm drivers brings the soundstage to life. Low frequency resonators reinforce bass and limit distortion. Voice feedback lets you monitor your outgoing levels and quality and the noise-cancelling mic ensures your teammates hear you, not the room you’re in. When you’re done with talk, just flip up the mic to mute it.

It's a mid-range headset like Turtle Beach's Stealth 700 and Razer's Thresher, but where those connect at the touch of a button, the RIG 800LX does require use of the included USB connected wireless base (it also works on PC). Still, it's a small price to pay for the techy ultralight headset which supports Dolby Atmos and all of the audio controls are on the headset itself unlike Plantronics' RIG 400LX and RIG 600LX.

Memory-foam ear cushions combat wearing fatigue and increase sound isolation for an immersive experience. The light, durable frame includes a self-adjusting head strap that evenly distributes weight to decrease pressure. RIG 800LX has multiple adjustment points to achieve a fit that lets you perform at your best, without tying you down or tangling you up.

The Plantronics RIG 800LX retails for $149.99.
