Plantronics announces Rig 4VR as the company’s first headset designed specifically for PlayStation VR. The Rig line has been a very successful line of headsets for Plantronics and they plan to bring clean audio and interchangeable configurations for PS VR and DualShock 4 wireless controllers.
“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.”
While the Rig 4V4 is apart of the new Rig 500 line of headsets, it does carry some similarities and differences. The modular design of the 500 returns with interchangeable ear cups and removable boom microphone on a super light and flexible frame for the headset. They will feature 40 mm drivers with low frequency resonators for a deeper bass while still delivering a balanced accuracy of sound.
The Rig 4VR will look to change the game in VR headsets as VR looks to have its best year yet especially with the popular PlayStation VR which sold out in minutes for its first online launch. Rig 4VR is set to launch for PlayStation VR and DualShock 4 controllers this holiday season for a retail price of just $69.99 USD.
• Personalization: The RIG 4VR can be customized with any RIG 500 Series accessories available at Plantronics.com, such as additional headband designs and finishes, interchangeable earcups, and more.
• Flexibility: The 3.5mm audio connector included with the RIG 4VR for the PlayStation®VR also works with other console controllers (including Xbox One), PC/Mac and portable and mobile gaming devices for maximum versatility.
