Summary: The headset does not cancel background noises. It actually picks up the least of sounds. I work in the back of my home, and my husband was in the living room having a conversation and the others in my training were able to hear the conversation through a closed door. My children whispered at the door something to me, and the sound was able to be heard.
Summary: Basic need for a headset with a microphone was the requirement, and this was suitable. For my need I wanted a little longer USB cord but was able to move the laptop and make it work. Good price for a low usage device.
Pros: Good price
Cons: Length of cable, sound controls not in the best location
