The Plantronics RIG 500E is the eSports model in the range but it offers plenty of customisation options. You can switch out the ear cups, the headband and even the microphone. This means if you want a closed back headphone that isolates noise, you can do that but if you would prefer an open-back design with a bigger sound stage then that can also be achieved.

  • Freq Response: 20Hz-20kHz.
