Summary: I bought this for gaming purposes to chat with my sister. The first day I used it no problems. After that my husband said it didn't work when he tried to use if for a work conference. When I tried it I couldn't get it to work either. I did some searching and one sight said to update windows. I did that and it worked again. For one day. Today I tried it again and my computer does not recognize it again. I tried to update again without results.
Summary: WARNING: Do your research if you plan to use this item with Mac OS X and Skype - there seems to be an inherent problem with this combination. If you Google this you will find several forums mentioning "choppy" sound with Skype, although the headset seemingly works fine with all other software. This therefore suggests the problem is with Apple/Skype drivers not the headset per se, but it is very disappointing if that was your primary purpose in buying it (as mine was!).
Summary: I had absolutely no problems with this product until I tugged on the USB lead accidentally. It was a minor incident, as in a very small but sudden tug on the cable. After this, the product no longer worked. After contacting the retailer, I was advised that it was past the product guarantee of 7 days from purchase. Now looking for a more durable headset.
Summary: The USB plug works in some of my older computers, but not in a newer Lenovo thinkPad. it goes in 2/3 the way and then blocks, leaving a loose connection that comes and goes as the cable is moving around. Customer support insists that it is a standard USB plug and say it is not a known problem, but I read reviews and I know I am not the only one. All other USB devices uncluding another Logitech (now dead) headset used to work on my laptop.
Summary: I usually don't leave reviews for simple headsets meant to be used primarily for online chatting. However, this Logitech headphone prompted me to leave this review to warn people of what they may get themselves into. The comfort is sub-par, but that is expected of a supra-aural headset. These will put pressure onto your ears, against the side of your head. It will start to hurt after a short period of time.
Summary: These things worked for about a year but all of a sudden the usb part with the chip inside got extremely hot and melted the plastic casing. I'm sure if they were left plugged in any longer they would have caught fire good thing they kept connecting/disconnecting and my computer was annoying me with the usb noise so I realized there about to some serious damage. Thank god the headset didn't short out my motherboard I would not recommend this headset.
Summary: One week after buying this headset it began to fail in very inconsistent ways. As other reviewers have said. it sometimes will be recognized by the system, and not other times. I have verified this on Both XP, Win7 and Mac OS 10.6.
Summary: I bought two of these headphones to use with Rosetta Stone and both failed within 2 weeks. Headphones and mics were intermittant and constantly went in and out like a bad cell phone. Don't buy these.
Summary: OK quality sound but it broke in less than 4 weeks. First signs of trouble were Windows (XP) intermittently failing to identify it (this while it was in use). Unplugging and re-plugging usually fixed that. Within a week the headset died with a huge burst of crackly static. Logitech should be ashamed to put its name on a product of such poor quality. Even at this low price a headset should be better than "disposable".
