First off this isn't a headset for Video Gaming but the one thing I'd like to mention is that it can certainly be used for your video Gaming. As long as you have a Bluetooth USB connector you could definitely without a doubt use it. The Headset last well over 24 hours with a personally recorded time of close onto 48 hours.
Ultimately you could very well game with these headsets if you didn't have any alternative. Sadly the microphone isn't for video Gaming communication, so you'd need to improvise. It's Said that the 800HX is supposed to live up to the name of the BackBeat Pro, unfortunately, reports are streaming in from our neighboring European countries that the 800HX suffers a lack of power due to smaller battery capacity.
Plantronics is on the case to fix future releases of the headset so be mindful of the 800HX. We'll be getting them soon for your reviewing pleasure.
Be warned my fellow readers, BackBeat Pro is due to be discontinued Q3 2017 so get them while they're hot. Best Headset for LoG 2016 we might have rated low but as soon as you connect it to your PC via Bluetooth the ballgame changes significantly.
Video Gamers looking for that immersion this headset will do it for you. Thinking about getting the Pro Plus? only real difference between the BackBeat Pro and the Pro Plus is that the Pro Plus contains Plantronics Signature dish The BT600 Bluetooth adapter that allows you to walk up to 100m away from the computer, it also allows for high-end Bluetooth streaming, not like that's a real biggy.
Ultimately this work/entertainment headset works BEAUTIFULLY for those virtual immersion Games or single Players Games like Subnautica. Tried it while playing both Subnautica as well as Squad while using a backup mic to compensate the loss of the Backbeat not having a mic powerful enough to be clear.
On Both Games Subnautica, I felt like being the only crash survivor that scared shitless of everything big that wants to eat my bacon. Squad makes me feel like I am in the midst of the guns blazing battle with my 1Sgt. Screaming down my neck to give suppression fire.
Video Gaming; LoG Rating 10/10 Get them or be sorry you missed out.
