Best Quality For Your Money.

Summary: Definitely worth the price even it rises back up to $20
Pros: Great microphone quality Noise canceling while using third party applications is fantastic Lightweight Low price ($9.99 when I bought it) USB sound card (Quality of mic and sound is guaranteed no matter what PC you have. Can also be used with other microphones and are usually worth $7-$15 alone) Long cord at approximately 7-8 feet
Cons: Settings are limited. May be uncomfortable to wear at first to some users
Summary: I use other headphones when I don't need a microphone and switch back and forth if my ears start to hurt from getting pinched, but I like my setup and if these break I would consider buying them again.
Pros: The sound quality is great and I get awesome sound from the microphone.
Cons: It isn't actually USB, it just has a USB adapter that the mic/headphones plug into, which means that the sound is analog (but the quality is still good) The mic and headphone jack sticks way out (2~ inches) and if you want to use the adapter it sticks out another 2. I have a big head, so when I wear this headset for more than 2-3 hours it starts to hurt my ears. If I wear my glasses while using these it hurts my ears after about and hour or two.
Summary: I wear glasses, no discomfort, the design going to take some getting used to since I am used to the traditional style. Sounds great for the purpose (I have not used it to listen to music, just call centre work).
If you record or talk a lot, this is an excellent set up.

Summary: As has become the standard with Plantronics, this is an excellent headset/mic. The one flaw (perhaps?), I found is the mic is so sensitive, you must be in a room with absolutely ZERO noise. This mic will pick it up easily. No one, not even the deafest Skyper, can say - "I CAN'T HEAR YOU" with this set. Crystal clear audio on both sides, as well as a handy volume/mute control on the cord.
Summary: These hooked right up and began working with ease. I like Plantronics and they are usually very good. These function great as for sound and quality. The reason I gave such a low rating is the molded plastic that fits right over the ears is literally excruciating. The sharp plastic cuts right into my upper ears. I even took some sandpaper to them and finally my dremel.
Don't buy unless you're on a really low budget. The headphones also hurt.

Summary: Hurt my ears, don't recommend to anyone. After 10min they start to hurt your ears...if you are on a really low budget then these would be your choice, other than that these will only be a waste of your money. The quality is decent on the mic part, but with two mics its really confusing for my device to choose which one to use.
Summary: Bought to use with voice chat/games on iMac. The first thing I liked was the price. Plantronics makes quality audio products and I was pleased to find these at a terrific price. Even though the tech is a bit outdated the sound and mic quality is very good. Compared to others it holds it's own. The one thing that I found troublesome is that they require some extra care as they are a bit fragile.
Summary: This headset is wonderful. The volume is clear and easy to control via the in-line volume controller. The mic records clearly and has excellent noise cancelling abilities. Definitely worth the by.
