  • Summary: I purchased this Headset, to replace the one I accidently damaged. I use it mainly for making phone calls and recording audio for videos. It has a great microphone and the single earphone lets me hear what's going on around me. It's also comfortable to wear. In fact, I had purchased this same headset before. I was wearing it and forgot it was on my head and proceeded to leave the room. Doing this, pulled the wires from the 2 jacks connected to my computer.

Terrific headset, very accurate

Martin T., Newegg

  • Summary: I have told others about this headset and recommended it to my co-workers. A number of us do computer dictation for psycho-educational reports with a number of medical and technical terms and this just cuts down errors and thus cuts down the time in dictation, which is precious.
  • Pros: Terrific headset. I just ordered it from Newegg but have been using one now for almost two months at work and now ordered one for home use. I use it with Dragon 11.5. I have found it works much much better than the standard headset I had been using. My errors in dictation, which were not that bad, have dropped substantially. The other thing I like about this headset is that it is very sturdy, very well made, durable. There is real sense of quality and attention to det...
  • Cons: The only one is that it is one-sided, i.e., you do not get a stereo headset, and at first it feels a bit uncomfortable. But I use it to work, and the absence of stereo headphones is minor, certainly not even close to an egg. Now it feels just fine on my head.

Great Headset for Dragon Dictation

Seattle-Dave, Adorama
3 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I have used dictation programs for over 10 yrs. The noise cancellation and word recognition hardware built into USB plug module makes a world of difference. Noticeably fewer errors with the Andrea NC USB headsets. After a year of use, I bought a second 181VM USB headset to take with me and my laptop out of the office. I have a pile of headsets from other manufacturers that I keep trying.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Error-free dictation, Fast
