Plantronics Publicly Unveils RIG 4VR, THe First Virtual Reality Gaming Headset Designed for PlayStation® VR


Tuesday, June 14, 2016 4:18 pm PDT


Los Angeles, CA

LOS ANGELES, CA – June 14, 2016  E3 – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in audio and wearable technology, invites E3 2016 media attendees to experience a hands-on demo of the new RIG 4VR, the first gaming headset designed specifically for PlayStation VR. Built on the critically-acclaimed Plantronics RIG series, the RIG 4VR is a complete audio solution for PS4 gamers, with interchangeable cables for use with PlayStation VR and the PlayStation 4 wireless controllers.

Along with interchangeable cables for use with PlayStation VR and the PlayStation 4 wireless controllers, RIG 4VR features 40mm drivers paired with low-frequency resonators for enhanced bass while maintaining accuracy of sounds. The removable flip-to-mute boom with noise-cancelling mic can be attached when using the headset with a PS4 controller, offering immersive stereo audio and exceptionally clear chat.

The RIG 4VR is constructed with an ultra-light, super-flexible frame and modular components for extraordinary comfort. A unique oval earcup design means it fits comfortably while in use with wearable displays like the PlayStation VR headset. And because the earcups allow in some ambient sound, it helps players maintain natural balance during VR sessions. A vented design also makes it possible for in-room conversations during social VR gaming experiences and provides greater heat dissipation so players stay comfortable when marathon gaming.

Visit the Plantronics booth at E3 for the first hands-on demo of the RIG 4VR for Playstation VR and speak with Plantronics spokespeople for gaming portfolio and strategy news.
