GameCom Halo 2 Headset

September 1, 2004 - A battle is no time for a "communications malfunction," when losing contact with the rest of the squad could mean complete annihilation. Fortunately, Halo(R) 2 gamers who play on Xbox Live(TM) can focus on strategy, not equipment, thanks to the GameCom Halo 2 Edition headset from Plantronics (NYSE:PLT). Plantronics, the world leader in lightweight communications headsets, engineered the GameCom Halo 2 Edition specifically for Xbox(R) and the highly anticipated sequel to Halo, the best-selling game from Bungie Studios. With the headset's superior voice features, online gamers can take full advantage of Halo 2's stunning new multiplayer challenges and also gain a competitive edge in demolishing the opposition. Good communications gear is vital to keeping a leg-up on the competition, and Plantronics' GameCom Halo 2 Edition delivers ultimate realism so teams can perform their best. Plantronics has designed mission-critical headsets for NASA, the U.S. Military, the FAA and other professionals for decades. Now gamers can rely on the same rugged durability for their epic Halo 2 sessions with the GameCom Halo 2 Edition, suiting up like Master Chief in gear they can count on. "GameCom Halo 2 Edition's performance combined with our kick ass sound design and new communications effects makes for an intense multiplayer gaming experience," said Pete Parsons, Studio Manager of Bungie Studios. "Comfortable and sleek, you almost immediately forget the GameCom Halo 2 Edition headset is there, as you sneak around behind an opponent and whisper something nasty in his ear before you run him through with an energy sword." Online multiplayer Halo 2 battles take on new intensity with technological and feature set advances, and clans can more effectively strategize and trash talk using the GameCom Halo 2 Edition. An optimized speaker, noise-canceling microphone, and contoured one-ear fit maximize the audio for gamers' complete immersion while letting them stay aware of what's happening in their other reality, the living room. The GameCom Halo 2 Edition also provides a weightless, custom fit for hours of comfortable play so gamers can deliver a premium performance. The Plantronics GameCom Halo 2 Edition is branded with the Halo 2 name and logo, and the officially licensed Xbox peripheral also matches the special edition Halo 2 console's vivid green and black color scheme. It is currently available for pre-orders via the website In October 2004 it will be available worldwide through select retail outlets at an ESP of US $49.95.
