  • Summary: I bought this product for use with Dragon naturally speaking. It is Nuance certified so I knew in advance that the headset will perform well with the program and I have not been disappointed. I have not used it for audio so I can not judge it. There is a tradeoff between massivity and durability and I do not think this is as solid as the 400 let alone 500 series so let the buyer be the judge about how gentle he/she is with equipment.

The sound quality is a great improvement.

  • Summary: I tend to go through a headset every two years or so. I have bought the 400 model before but found this one for a great price. The features for reducing the volume and muting are great. I perhaps would want it to fold a bit smaller for traveling but it seems very sturdy which is more important. Plantronics is tops in the headset game in my view.

I like it

  • Summary: I bought this to work with Dragon Dictate when I move about. The design is good and easy to use, and fits me quite well. It folds at the top, and does not catch my hair. I found it is comfortable, since the earpiece does not squash my ear at all, it just sits on top. I did notice one ear piece making small clicking noise when I move my head, but it is very small. The digital processing unit become quite warm when used EVEN IF NO AUDIO OUT OR IN.

Good quality headset for a reasonable price.

  • Summary: I bought these for skyping during a trip overseas. They are connected via usb to dell netbook. Pluses are that there is good crisp sound, the inline controls are handy, they are foldable and rather neat and the microphone quality is good in noisy backgrounds. Not sure if its full noise cancelling as the boom is a bit short, but we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. It certainly worked very well for me in a moderately noisy setting of the relations sitting room!

Very high quality, very cheap for DSP

  • Summary: Thought I had reviewed this before It's a foldable (for laptop / travelling) so of course not as robust as the full office version Exceptionally cheap for a full banana DSP headset My previous Plantronics DSP Foldable lasted c.10 years (and I did step on it a few times.....

Decent sound from a folding Headset

  • Summary: PROS: Excellent sound quality, lightweight CONS: Chunky design, slightly uncomfortable to wear, not noise cancelling! These were a gift to replace a broken headset. I wouldn't have chosen this set myself.

Great sound

David, FutureShop

  • Summary: I found this headset fits my head better than the "behind the neck" type. The sound is great and the folding and overall size is good for travel. Two drawbacks: it fits a little tight so long calls produce sore ears; the wire splits into two with each headphone being serviced by a separate wire rather than one wire going into one headphone and then through the band to service the other side. But this was necessary to accommodate the folding.

  • Excerpt: Покупал гарнитуру для скайпа, вентриллы, мамбла и других геймерских голосовых чатов.
  • Pros: Легкие, уши совсем не устают. Классической формы, без выкрутасов - выглядят не как у малолетнего геймера. Отличный микрофон - голос в скайпе и вентрилле передает шикарно. Крепление микрофона можно сгибать, при необходимости оно убирается к уху. Забота об эргономике даже в самых мелочах, например, кнопки "прибавить громкость", "убавить", "замьютить микрофон" Шикарные. Я брал за 1100, цена для гарнитуры Plantronics с USB подключением совсем не большая.
