Excerpt: I use these for online conferencing every day and want to use them for some podcasts, but haven't gotten to that yet. Sound quality is good, people on the other end say it's good too. The inline volume control and mute are nice and work great with Windows 7. They just aren't very comfortable. I would say it's because I have a large head (7 5/8" hat), but I think it's really an issue of the design and the earpieces laying on your ears.
Excerpt: Just purchased this headset for use with Skype. Works well so far. It's got nice padded cushions. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it requires a usb connection. I have a lot of devices I like to keep connected, so with the headset taking up a usb port I am limited to having to unplug my devices. I suppose I could use a usb hub...but that would mean I would have to buy one. Otherwise, so far so good.
Excerpt: I'm back on Officemax.com to buy a new headset, this one works just fine as far as audio quality goes (both headphones and microphone), but wear these longer than 20 minutes and your ears will start hurting really bad. I'm on Skype calls often 2 or 3 hours a day, and after 30 mins of wearing these, they destroy your ears. My ears get so sore, I have to peel these things off carefully.
Excerpt: Bought this as recommended by my company. Using for laptop VOIP application. There is a hum in the ear pieces depending on how sensitive a setting you have on the microphone. Control for volumn and muting work quite well. It is definately better than trying to use the built-in speaker and microphone of the laptop. When someone is speaking they are clear (except for times the VOIP is acting up).
Pros: a little heavy duty so i expect it to last longer, nice cord length
Summary: Bought this new based on some fellow gamer's recommendations and out of the box the inline mute and increase volume control doesn't work...only the decrease volume button works. A work around can be done through software, but you would think a new product would function correctly and it's hardly worth shipping it back to the vendor or Logitech for a replacement. Should have gone with a different brand and will know better next time!
Excerpt: These earphones pads fit on top of the ear. To me comfort means the pads fit around the ear and do not rest or squeeze the ears like these do. I can't see that these would be comfortable after an hour or so of use. On the PC they always work when plugged in, however on the MAC (Intel) System Preferences have to be set each time.
Summary: This is a good headset for the price. I bought it for my wife, mostly for using skype and does get the job done. I don't think they are quite as confortable as other logitech headsets (thus 3 start) but the sound quality is good and my wife is quite happy with them.
Summary: I found the Logitech to be one of the most clear sounding headphones I ever bought. The only problem is that I'm a gamer and I usually wear my headphones for long periods of time. This headphone really hurts my ears when I wear them for 1-2 hours but other then that the product is fine.
