the microphone is inside the cord's volume control

Donna C., Newegg
16 September 2006
  • Summary: when my friends tell me a loud hiss is in the background of my talking, I "dial" the volume control back and forth and the hiss quits.
  • Pros: Clever placement of the microphone on the cord, and it picks up sound from all over the room and beyond. The headset is medium weight and does not seem fragile.
  • Cons: The padding on the ears is a bit thin. I looped the cord a bit shorter so the microphone would not rub on my shirt to make scritchy noises.

Ridiculous Entry

Mike Stephens "mike_stephens", Amazon

  • Summary: Why doesn't the product description clearly state the connector dimensions? This is true of a lot headsets on Amazon. I got a headset (Plantronics M175) as a present and am struggling two weeks later to get an adapter for my BlackBerry or Galaxy S.

Not the best headset

Jamil, Amazon
25 October 2012
  • Summary: Audio is great love listening to music with it, but when it comes to the mic alone not that good at all. Constant buzzing most of the time when speaking, like a buffer of some sort even when registered, I would not recommend this to anyone who wants a nice clear headset.

seems good so far

C. I. H. Brown, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: I haven't used this to its full potential but it's great for what I need it for - I really just wanted headphones for now but I'm sure the mic will come in handy when I need to use it - given the low cost of this item it made sense to get the full headset.

Cheap and Cheerful

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I got these as a class set for school podcasting activities. They're cheap and they work, the only problem is that the microphone is bi-directional; it picks stuff up equally well from behind as well as in front.

Good Price but not very good quality

JUL, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: I received the first headset but once I unpacked it I realized that one of the earphones it was completely broken and the shield of the cable as well. Three days later I received a new headset which works good, but it is not easy to fit in the head, the headset falls down very easy.

Not comfortable at all

papamike, Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this headset to use for listening to music and for use with Skype. I found the headset uncomfortable - the fit seemed loose and with the mic boom lowered, the weight of the boom pulled the left earpad slightly away from my ear, making the sound uneven and the fit uncomfortable.
