Excerpt: I was easily able to connect the headset to my Windows 7 desktop. The computer recognized the new hardware and could see both the microphone and speakers. I am able to see these in my general audio settings and switch between these and my general speakers.
Summary: A good bang for your buck, you can really get the most out of these with a decent sound card. However, they're good regardless. When I first got these, I would be using terms like "awesome" and "amazing", but having them for a long time has tempered my excitement.
Pros: I'll skip the preamble and get to the point. Great sound coming in, great sound going out. And that was before I'd gotten a sound card (which made these babies even MORE amazing!). They also cancel out a good deal of outside noise when active. Fairly comfy, though this is subjective: The size of ...
Cons: Still, things could be better. The mic is a set length and only has about 170 degrees of up/down movement (no horizontal movement to put it directly in front of you), making it a little difficult to find a sweet-spot. If your computer or a fan or any other noise source is to your right, your mic ...
Excerpt: Great option for those looking for a relatively inexpensive headphone set for use with Skype or other Voip applications. Great sound, I was pleasantly surprised, and the mic boom is quite handy.
Excerpt: This was a purchase that I had to make very quickly. I had a webinar meeting that was in 20 minutes and had realized that someone had broken my previous headset. The cord was cut with no fixing it.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Aside from the size not being adjustable the Plantronics head set is easy to use and meets all my basic needs. The microphone is compact and stores in the unit making it less apt to get broken.
Summary: The headset is awesome for the price. Turtle Beach's have nothing on these. My only concerns for this headset is the plastic used for the mold. It doesn't seem very resistant to impact. I would avoid dropping them or having them fall off of your head or desk.
Pros: Good sound quality, earmuff design, decent bass, Mic sounds good, Sleek design.
Cons: Poor choice of plastic used, it makes weird stress noises when you put it on. Is a bit tight on the head out of the box. The wire only goes into one side of the headset, that could possibly mean that one speaker could go out.
Excerpt: This headphone set is a very good value for the cost. The padded ear pieces are quite comfortable and easily adjustable. The in-line volume control is conveniently placed and the cord is long enough to allow the user to be able to stand and move around without disconnecting.My only complaints are...
