Plantronics has jumped on the virtual reality bandwagon, revealing a brand new PlayStation VR headset designed specifically for the exciting new virtual reality gaming experience.
The US$70 Plantronics Rig 4V5 (A$119) offers a “complete audio solution”, with interchangeable cables for use with PlayStation VR and DualShock 4. It will launch alongside PlayStation VR this October.
“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.”
A member of the Plantronics RIG 500 Series, the RIG 4VR features 40mm drivers paired with low-frequency resonators, as well as a removable flip-to-mute boom with noise-cancelling mic that can be attached when using the headset with a controller. It can be customized with any RIG 500 Series accessories, and will come with a 3.5mm audio connector for use on other platforms such as the Xbox One and PC/Mac.
It will launch this holiday season alongside PlayStation VR, and will retail in Australia for RRP A$119.
