Excerpt: This headset was purchased for use with the Skype program. I was having trouble trying to communicate with my son in South America with an old microphone. The headset performed great for me. No problem with installing hardware. Was recognized and worked perfectly. Skype switches to headset automatically when plugged in to USB port. It is light and comfortable to wear. Ear cuffs seal around ears and cut out background noise.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Excerpt: It would be nice to have adapter to allow use on Tablets. I use this for two reasons. 1. Noise cancellation helps my concentration while writing complex journals and books. 2. When relaxing to music video's or researching for my journals or books, I am separated from other household noises, but not so completely that I miss important messages.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone, Select Spkrs Or Hdphn, W8 Includes Program, W8 - Program Selection 5
Summary: The wort part is the damage it does to my ears. I don't think I have large ears, but I can't really see them. Nobody has ever mocked me for them, so that's a sign in my favor. No matter how I adjust these, they hurt after a long call (30 minutes +). I just got off of a 4 hour call using these and the pain prompted me to come here and buy a new headset after I finish this review.
Pros: Excellent voice and sound clarity. Functions as well as I could ask for.
Cons: The top strap cuts into the top of my head for starters. I took a file to the sharp plastic on top to lessen the pain, but it's definitely still there. I'm sure the fact that I am folliclly challenged has much to do with that however. If I'm on a long call, I usually get classy and place an ankle sock on the top of my head before putting on the headset. Working from home is a plus if using this method.
Excerpt: The sound and ease of use of this head phone is great!!!! Since its a Microsoft product, Windows update, quickly and efficiently downloaded the driver. The integrated mute and volume buttons are a real plus. It even has a red LED indicator light to tell you when you are muted. The padded head phones offer offer comfort for extended where. The padding also does a good job of blocking out external noises.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
