Summary: I bought three of these. Prior to that, I bought several (at least 8 that I can think of off the bat) of the "Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Circumaural Headset", which is listed as "out of stock" at NewEgg. I really can't tell what the difference is. Appearance and functionality-wise, both models are exactly the same. I don't know what the difference is or why Logitech changed models. It must be an internal product revision.
Pros: - Great sound. - Uses standard drivers so no installation necessary. - Comfortable for long periods (at least on my ears). - Good range of volume. - Mute or unmute your mic by simply pressing in right ear (it's a huge button). - Nice Red LED light glows to show that it is muted. - Easy volume control Up/Down buttons right on the ear.
Cons: The USB plug is where some circutry is housed. It's fairly delicate. One time, I accidentally ripped it out of the computer -- not straight out of the USB plug, but kinda torqued sideways. IT resulted in me bending the USB connector and breaking open the plastic housing. I managed to solder the severed wires back onto the PCB circuit board and tape the plastic housing closed and it continued to work. Now, what I do to prevent this is use a USB extension cord. That way...
Pros: I've been using logitech clear pro chat headset and decided to buy a similar one for back up and ended up getting this product. I'm very disappointed with the sound quality and makes me wonder if maybe there's a defect? My clear chat pro has better sound quality that is much more clear than this brand new one. I can't tell if it's because of the bass, but watching movies and listening to music is a bit irritating talking aren't as clear. It almost makes me feel like t...
Summary: If you are looking for a super sweet headset, keep looking. If you have ever owned a Logitech headset before, nothing about this one will surprise you.
Pros: -Good Value (Cyber Monday Deals Rock! Thanks Newegg) -Volume and mute buttons on the ear piece are well designed and convenient -Nice long cord
Cons: -The headset doesn't adjust large enough to fit my head (it's ok I guess, I'm still using them) -While making calls through Google Voice, multiple people have told me that my voice is cutting in and out...
Summary: I use this only for VOIP with Google Voice inside Gmail. Works great. Should be even better with Skype due to the ultra-wide-band support. For Mac users, I recommend downloading SoundSource to quickly change the audio output before and after a call (easier than doing this in the Preferences menu). This way you can leave the headset plugged in at all times and still get sound from the built-in speakers when not making making phone calls.
Pros: Excellent sound and microphone quality. Works out of the box on a Mac.
Summary: I think i'm going to order a couple spare sets for later use in case these get discontinued.
Pros: This is my second set of these. First set lasted about 2 years. The sound from these is pretty good and the presets adjust it to suit your application. What i really like about these is they work with vent in windows , or mangler in ubuntu. I tried 3 other headsets after my first set failed before finding these on newegg and none of them worked well with both apps.
Cons: My last set ended up with a broken wire inside the cord i think. that made the mic intermittent and then finally didn't work at all unless i help the cord a certain way. From that i would say the cord is the only weak link in an otherwise very good headset.
Summary: All in all, a wonderful buy that I would highly recommend. They emulate surround sound well even though they aren't the new and true 5.1 or 7.1 Also the mic can swing up and down which comes in handy. Lastly, its logitech, which is a brand that I really trust, they've lasted with ZERO wear over the last year and the sound quality is fantastic.
Pros: I gotta say I love this headset, it has it's downsides but all in all this thing gets the job done and does so quite well. The good +Sound adjustments on the headphones: This can really come in handy, I used to have a headset that I had to run my hand across the cord until I found the volume and mute switch, but this way it is always right there, no second guessing. +EQ Presets: I have to say I never expected to actually use this feature, but it makes a fairly intense...
Cons: Time for some of the down sides, and at this price you have to expect a few small things at least. - The head size adjustment isn't the best, it stays in place when you have it on, but they seem ready to loose it's position at any moment. - The material at the top of the headset that rests on my hair is a bit slippery and these headphones LOVE to fall off. If you sneeze with these things on you can kiss em good bye cause they will fly.
