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.
Summary: It's a good headset but I do have some complaints with it. (Note, I bought this headset from Staples not Amazon) The Microphone may have good quality but it picks up a lot of background audio and can be quite crackly at times. The headphones part of the headset is comfortable and sounds good but I wish that it blocked background audio because I can hear everything going on around me over what I'm listening to.
Summary: I had high hopes for this headset, as I had perused the reviews and found both the price and quality to be suitable before purchasing. Upon receiving the product, I first found the USB to be much too snug. In fact, the USB plug made me slightly afraid to use the product, in fear of damaging my laptop. As for quality, the product sounds worse than a four dollar pair of Panasonic headphones that I have. On the bright side, the recording quality of the microphone is good.
Summary: The headset works well enough for its price range, unless you're using Windows 7. On Windows 7, you have to download drivers for it. Upon installing the drivers, Windows 7 will still say the device was improperly installed, no matter if you unplugged it first then installed, or installed then rebooted, or any number of approaches I tried. Paradoxically, the device works well enough under Mac.
Summary: Made for a small child; squeezes like a vice. Microphone quality is very good, but if you don't want it in front of your face all day then it's a pain, because it's difficult to position up out of the way.
Summary: Well......they're cheap and they will get the job done. I gave them 2 stars because of this. That said if you have any type of standards when it comes to audio then move on right now. Music and movies or even games and this headset won't cut it. I've had these for 2 days and its terrible. I am here to find and buy another/better set. These will do as some backups for a short time, but again...if you have any audio standards or expectations then move on to another set.
Summary: I got my first headset three years ago and it worked so well! Good sound, comfortable, easy to install. I used it to listen to music, use skype, and never had a problem. It survived moving to and from my dorm, falling numerous times off of my desk, and getting tangled. So when it finally died, I decided to get the same brand. Unfortunately, something must have happened in those three years because my second headset just broke after 3 weeks.
