No Listen and Charge, Not Circumaural

James G., Newegg
5 days ago
  • Summary: So far, I am content; however, I've only had them for about half a month. Participants in video chats (like Google Hangouts) don't complain about the quality, and I hear them usually just fine.
  • Pros: Light. Easy to use.
  • Cons: No 'listen and charge' ability. Discovered while at work with a nearly-dead headset - plugged in after a sync, and audio (in and out) dropped and disconnected from USB transceiver. I have a big-ish noggin, and the headset is not circumaural. I get a little pain on the edges of my ears, since that is where the patds are sitting.. on the ears,.

User Review

William C., Newegg

  • Summary: I feel like I have wasted my money on this because it hurts my ears to wear this so I will have to buy another brand that actually fits correctly. The build quality seems good. It has been dropped off the desk a few times without breaking so it seems durable. They could have easily made more room for your ear at little ($0.05) or no cost with a larger foam pad.
  • Pros: Price Ok sound quality Ok mic quality Works with Ubuntu
  • Cons: You cannot use this while charging. You will need another headset to use when you forget to charge this one. There is not enough space for the averaged size adult ear to fit comfortably. The ear cup measures about 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch and the average human ear is over 2 inch long. measure your own ear before buying this one.

Good Product

  • Summary: Headset performs very well and as advertised. Wish that batteries last longer between recharging or that the set could be used while recharging. However, I don't consider this a defect but only a slight inconvenience. Headset is comfortable to wear and has great audio.

Good purchase

Michael N., Newegg
31 July 2014
  • Summary: Wasn't sure when I ordered, that this wireless headset/microphone would work with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Recognizes dictation without difficulty – Exceeds my expectations. Using Windows 8.1. No drivers needed. Follow the instructions for installing and you won't have a problem. Anyone that has problems with this it either has a defective unit or has not followed the simple installation instructions.
  • Pros: Excellent range, superb fidelity. Using with Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 13 and listen to music/TV through computer line-in. Exceeds specifications – Tested dictating and listening to audio from the furtherest I can get in my house. It still accurately dictates and receives high-quality audio from that distance (over 65 feet).
  • Cons: Not a big deal but wish it could be used while charging.

GREAT SET OF HEADPHONES

ggbobbo, Staples
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: THESE Plantronics .Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset by Plantronics are a great set of headphones. The only thing I would change is I would like to see the charging wire was a little longer,because if they were longer you could listen to them while they charged. Other than that one recommendation they are great..so goodbye Logitech and hello Plantronics!

I would purchase again, their customer service people aren't so bright

theblushingbunny, Ebay
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this brand and model of headset because of its reputation. Everything I had read gave the company and the headset high praise, so I decided I needed a pair too. The headsets themselves are great! Quality construction and such, the only down side is I haven't gotten to actually use them yet. I knowingly purchased my pair without the required dongle.

What is not to like

Ken, Staples
22 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Very good product. My computer has several front face usb ports so it was easy to put the wireless antenae into the computer. The headsets were comfortable and had good quality reception.The microphone has excellent quality, actually better than phone voice and audio. I like the on/off feature of the mic by turning it on by pulling it down to your mouth and turning it off by putting it back up to your temple.Once the headset is programmed it is near flawless.

Not for gamers

Jim B., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Summary: If you want a good gaming headset invest in an Astro. They have an a38 bluetooth headset with twice the battery life, or just get a wired 140 so you never have to worry about charge and you get over-the-ear comfort.
  • Pros: This is a very decent headset for light to medium practical usage for the office, playing some music, or talking a little bit on skype. It is on-ear but more comfortable than most alternatives
  • Cons: Your ears will hurt eventually and this is not intended for heavy usage by a gamer, hence my two eggs because I was frustrated that I got something at a $100 price emark that wasn't really suited for my needs just cuz it was wireless The battery dies on me every session while I'm playing and I have to switch audio devices in the middle of things, it feels like less than 6 hours. It was the only wireless solution readily available at my aafes exchange.

Sounding right

Donald W., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Pros: I have a big head and big ears, and I was used to the headphones I have which cover my entire ear, so it took a little bit to get used to these, but they are comfortable nonetheless, the sound is better than my 100 dollar sennheiser studio headphones. With my thyroid / pituitary gland problems, i look and sound like im 18ish, even though I'm 34, my old mic made me sound even younger, this mic makes me sound how i actually sound, which is nice, to not sound like a girl...
