Summary: The ear pieces on the H540 are by far the most uncomfortable I've ever had in a headset. I've owned tons of Logitech stuff over the years, I'm typing this on a G-15 keyboard I've had for 5-10 years. I've always liked there products and have been very happy with them but I just pulled a new H540 out the box and it is a cheap piece of junk. Going right back to the store for something else.
Summary: This headset used to be my friends. He gave it to me to replace my old headset and it is the best headset ever. It projects my voice as it actually is and the quality is amazing. One thing that does annoy be a bit is the constant playback while my microphone isn't muted. It plays my tiny bit of static and I keep it on mute when I'm not talking.
Summary: I've read several negative reviews about the H540 headset. I'm perplexed by them. My set is only a couple of days old, so I cannot speak about their long term durability, but based on owning several Logitech products for several years, all have been excellent. The exceptions are the 2 headphone sets destroyed when I carelessly snagged my foot on the cord, yanking them from my computer. I hope I have learned my lesson. I've now worn the headset for many hours. Yes.
Summary: I started years ago with a Clear Chat, and as the headsets wore out, I went to the Clear Chat Pro and finally to a H530. All were similar light weight construction, and the sound quality was fine for my gaming needs. While my old H530 may not satisfy gamers who want that surround sound effect, it was a cool and comfortable on-the ear headset that worked great for inter-game chat.
Summary: Its really not worth it honestly. i bought these about maybe four months ago. The red light stopped working last week, and when i first bought them the left ear did not work at all. These headphones are not good at all. Sorry but i wouldnt buy them. They also do not really stay on my head well.
Summary: I use the headset with microphone to tutor online. I also listen to music, especially classical. The tone is very clear for both speaking and hearing. The expandable head piece is comfortable. The volume and mute controls are ON the head piece, at the right ear. My last headset cost $30 more than this one, and it was poor in comparison.
Summary: My parents bought these headphones as a birthday present. These headphones are so poorly designed that every time I make the slightest movement with my head the earpiece makes this little, almost unperceivable "crack" sound that ends up being amplified by the microphone and thus triggering my TeamSpeak microphone activation. My friends can't stand it anymore because it is so annoying.
