Plantronics GameCom 367 PC gaming headset
This budget Plantronics gaming headset has a good microphone and decent sound quality
- Flashy red and grey colour scheme, good stereo positioning, good passive noise cancelling
- Tight initial clamping force
If you aren’t concerned with how you look while wearing this chunky Plantronics GameCom 367 headset, you will be pleasantly surprised at the decent sound quality and good ambient noise reduction.
Price$ 79.00 (AUD)
The Plantronics GameCom 367 is a stereo gaming headset that offers decent sound quality and good noise cancellation for a reasonable price. It may not look beautiful and the headphones' clamping force is quite hard when you initially put the headset on. However the Plantronics GameCom 367 is still a good choice if you're looking for a cheap pair of gaming headphones.
With a design similar to the Plantronics GameCom 377 and Plantronics GameCom 777 headsets, the Plantronics GameCom 367 may not appeal to all tastes. Large, squarish and chunky ear-cups accompany a thick plastic headband, and the headphones look slightly too large for your head when you're wearing them. Of course, unless you’re gaming with other people around, no-one’s going to care.
The design is nonetheless more interesting than the GameCom 777's, with red accents on the headphone cable, ear-cups and padding. An in-line volume control and a microphone mute switch round out the package; they sit around a metre down the 3m headphone cable which terminates in two analog jacks for the headphones and microphone.
An extendable, flexible boom microphone swings down from its hiding place inside the headband and is easy to adjust. We like the hidden microphone: it saves the Plantronics GameCom family from the bug-antenna look of other PC gaming headsets. The microphone works well, with noise cancelling ensuring that minimal background audio is transmitted.
Sound quality is decent, with bass and treble reproduced well for a headset at this price point. We did notice that the Plantronics GameCom 367 was not able to produce higher treble frequencies, with some movie and music audio seeming artificially restrained and cut off. This is common for low-end headphones, though; the Plantronics GameCom 367 is far from unique with this ailment. Stereo positional audio is well handled, with the headset able to reproduce footsteps, ambient noise and other 3D audio well in our gaming tests.
The passive noise cancelling works well, with outside noise muffled by the thick ear-cups and comfortable padding. The downside of this is high initial clamping force: you may be somewhat uncomfortable unless the headphones are perfectly adjusted. Most troublesome for those with oversized heads, this problem goes away after wearing the headset for a few gaming sessions.
The Plantronics GameCom 367 is a good buy given its reasonable price tag. You do miss out on the USB sound card of the Plantronics GameCom 777 and the headphones are initially uncomfortable. But this headset is still a reasonably comfortable option for PC gaming.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
