Plantronics, Inc. announced it has been selected by Microsoft to be an official licensee of Xbox communicator and headset bundle for the Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The Plantronics GameCom X10C headset, for use with the Xbox Live online gaming service, provides gamers with outstanding sound and voice quality for strategizing online with friends across town and around the world.
The Plantronics GameCom X10C features a noise-canceling microphone to eliminate unwanted background noise and ensure gamers’ voices are clearly heard during high-stakes game play. Gamers can also engage in long, intense gaming sessions with maximum comfort and stability with the X10C’s over-the- head wearing style. Because the X10C is bundled with the Xbox communicator module, users can chat with plug-and-play ease.
“Microsoft’s selection of Plantronics as an official headset licensee for Xbox is a testament to the quality of our products and the integral role headsets play in enhancing the gaming experience,” said Renee Niemi, vice president of Mobile and Entertainment at Plantronics. “Plantronics and Microsoft share a great history together in the gaming industry and we continue to broaden our partnership.”
Compatibility and Availability
The X10C headset is fully compatible with both the Xbox and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, so gamers will experience the same superior sound and voice quality once they upgrade to the new console.
The Plantronics GameCom X10C has an estimated retail price of $29.99 and is available now at major consumer electronics and gaming retailers.
