Summary: I bought this headset for use on Skype as a replacement for a Logitech 350 headset that had been accidently over driven, causing damage. At least I think that's what happened as I don't remember them always sounding distorted. The Creative HS-720 has clear transmission coming and going.
Summary: By Heather Miller After purchasing 2 headsets for my laptop, neither of which worked, I found out that Mac laptops are designed to work with headset/mics that use a single jack, not a dual jack even though there is a 'headset' and a 'mic' jack.
Summary: By KRW For the price of this headset, you can not beat the quality, sound and durability. They are more than adequate for my purposes (Dragon Naturally Speaking Software, mild gaming, music and Skype) and are relatively comfortable for extended periods of wear (2-3 hours).
Sound quality is much better than I expected for the money.

Summary: By Karin G. Reynolds "watchrider" I read customer reviews on quite a few headsets on Amazon and 2 other sites. These were rated consistently better than others of comparable and some higher priced models. For the money, the sound is really nice.
Summary: By GoldDove I needed these for a VOIP system for work. I work at home. The sound coming from the ear phones was great, but the microphone hardly worked at all. The setup test that helps you set the volume barely registered that I was speaking, and when I setup voice mail, my greeting wasn't audible.
Summary: By Craig S Davidson Got this as Xmas gift for son. He loves it. Had other, more pricey alternatives (recommended by his fellow fanboys). This one beats them all head to head. Packaged well, shipped quickly. I'm thinking about getting one myself since Heart of the Swarm comes out this week....
Summary: By Scott D. Payne this product is amazing I developed MS IE: multiple sclerosis which affected my eyes and my coordination so hitting the keys reliably was a gamble so I purchased this product because I had a boom mic it works great with Dragon natural speaking which is what I use instead of hitting...
Pros: Looks nice and actually feels for 1 hr. No software needed, automatically installed within seconds.
Cons: Picture give the impression that it's an over the ear headphone, but the speakers actually sit on the ear. And right out of the box, plugged in, driver installed, then sound was staticy. Very Disappointing for Creative
