Summary: When recording I get a microphone hum. It appears that this can happen with certain laptops, mine is a Lenovo Thinkpad. I have tried all sorts of solutions and researched the problem on the web but with no success. I shall be returning this item.
Excellent product that works well with Linux Mint 14

Summary: Works very well out of the box with Linux Mint 14 and by implication, Ubuntu Quantal. No configuring required except to select the output. You may have to unplug any speaker going into the line-out. Works well on OSX and Windows 7 too. My machine is a 2013 Mac Mini
Summary: Been using this for a year or so and it works great, very good sound for then price. Although the ear covers are not very comfortable. They're small and the foam inside is quite hard. But fine for using on Skype,I have some proper headphones for listening to music with.
Summary: I purchased this headset for use with Skype and the sound quality is good - the plug and play USB is great but when you wear them for a few hours on a long call they become heavy and uncomfortable on the ears - shame.
Summary: Ordered H530 received the H540 - Prices were also different. In communication, was advised the H530 was obsolete. Received a speedy refund of difference in price. Product itself is as described and works well.
