Good headset

Mary F., Newegg
29 May 2009
  • Summary: After a about a year the sound became very tiney and low volume on highest setting. I wish headphone manufacturers would make headsets with thicker cords! the cord always gets nicked, or chewed on my my many snarky cats :0
  • Pros: I owned these for over a year, used them extensively everyday. I also ran them over with my computer chair numerous times. Good sound, and the mic works very well. After having a Logitech set for the past 6months (2 of them, which have both failed now) I am going to buy these again.
  • Cons: For a women, they are HUGE! I had a hard time keeping them on my head on the smallest setting.

  • Pros: This headset works much better than my old logitech did. The audio is much clearer over the speakers. Also the sound quality from the mic is SO much better than what I had before. I am using this on Kubuntu 8.10 and using with Skype.
  • Cons: none

Great for 30 dollars

  • Summary: Anyone want to give me their Phenom II or Core 2 Penryn? :(
  • Pros: Bought these from a local BB after looking for sub 50 dollar headsets.Sound is awesome compared to a few other headsets I have used.IS Comfortable,but my head is larger than most people's. Rather decent mic quality.Comfortable for me.
  • Cons: Loud to Quiet ratio - when You're playing something like Call of Duty,Fallout 3,War Rock(yes I play War Rock),or any of the Battlefields the louder noises such as artillery,tank shells,or grenades can drown out what your clan-mates are saying on ventrilo.Also,the quality goes down when you are sp...

Excellent

Matthew S., Newegg
29 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought mine from a local blue and yellow retail chain because I didn't want to wait for shipping. I plugged them into my computer and they just sound so much better than normal headphones. The next best thing would have to be in-ear studio monitors.... buy these, you definitely won't regret it!
  • Pros: Let me preface by saying that I do not have the 650, I have the 350. The only difference between the two models is the usb adapter (which I have from a previous plantronics purchase). This headset will not disappoint you. Sound for games and music is simply amazing. The microphone positions close...
  • Cons: Heavy... They're comfortable, but you know they're there. Style.... you look like a dork. Just get over it -I did. Everyone is already laughing anyway. Good product... they make newegg con reviews very short... darn you plantronics... why do you have to make such an awesome product??!!??!!

acceptable

Jonathan B., Newegg
22 January 2009
  • Pros: Has 1/8" plugs, one for mic, one for headphones. Comes with USB audio adapter, which has two 1/8" jacks in it, one for mic, one for headphones. Mic works well, quite adjustable.
  • Cons: Bass is a little elevated and muddy. Fine for gaming, not recommended for music.

Good headset

Anonymous, Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: I wear glasses and I couldn't deal with the pain it causes during extended use so I returned it for the GameCom 777. Much better if your willing to shell out the money for it.
  • Pros: Decent sound quality. Plenty of cable. Excellent mic. Small design.
  • Cons: If you wear glasses they will start to hurt your ears after 45 minutes - 1 hour. The speakers are missing some highs. USB dongle is a waist since my Creative X-Fi card has much better quality.

Excellent, reliable, just slightly uncomfortable

Jason P., Newegg
20 December 2008
  • Summary: Great headset. Highly recommended if you're on a budget. I'm a gamer and wanted something with an amazing microphone and good sound quality, and that's exactly what Plantronics is providing here.
  • Pros: Good sound quality, just a teeny bit harsh (I'm an audiophile), and kind of lacking in the very high frequency range. Good sounding bass, just not enough of it. Note: The sound quality can be GREATLY enhanced if you have an Equalizer on your computer's sound card, because these babies can handle ...
  • Cons: After long hours of use, the earpads tend to cause discomfort. When i bent my mic one time after owning the headset for many months, it now does not stay where i bent it to unless it is not extended (the QuickAdjust). Not a big deal, just thought I would throw that in there.

Not bad- but uncomfortable for long use

Steven S., Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: Probably a better than average set for most folks (at a decent price)... I just can't get past the ear pain... switching to another set...
  • Pros: Pretty good audio and mic quality. Decent set for the money...
  • Cons: I found these to be pretty uncomfortable (more than the other sets I have)- especially for long periods of time. And it's even worse since I wear glasses... Just seems they are a bit tight (and I don't have THAT big of a head!)... they are fine for short term use, but more than an hour or two and...
