Plantronics .Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset

smtips, Overstock
10 December 2012
  • Summary: I have had to return this to the retailer once, and just got off the phone after arguing with Plantronics about a free shipper to warranty it for a second return. The unit will not hold a charge. The first one would only hold a charge for 3 hours and I refunded/repurchased in 2 weeks. The second one has done okay but within 3 months the same thing has happened, it will not hold a charge. They are using totally JUNK batteries in these units.

Piece of Junk

Matt P., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS IT IS NOT WORTH ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY AND IS TARNISHING THE PLANTRONICS NAME BADLY.
  • Pros: Sounds okay.

Good Headset with irreplaceable battery

Scott M., Newegg
16 September 2012
  • Summary: BUYER BEWARE!!!
  • Pros: Comfortable and works well.
  • Cons: Plantronics expects you to throw this item away when the battery no longer holds a charge. I've owned my 995 for two years and used it moderately. The battery now dies in less than one hour. I would not have bought this if I had known they don't allow the battery to be changed.

Not very good

Casey H., Newegg
22 December 2011
  • Summary: newegg customer service was fantastic. Sent me an RMA and free shipping back to them for the defective product. I can't say enough for newegg's customer service.
  • Pros: good price. Typically high quality manufacturer. Seemed to be well build
  • Cons: very tight on my head, hurt even after short periods of wear. Charging cord far too short. And the main complaint I had was even with sitting right next to the usb transmitter I got the robotic voice problem very very often. At least a few times a minute. It made both gaming and trying to watch a movie unbearable. Went back to my cheapo Logitech wired USB headset for now.

Gamers Stay away

Patrick H., Newegg
12 October 2011
  • Summary: It only works when you don't have it plugged in so if you are in the middle of a game and you're battery dies guess what you are pretty much out of luck. It does not work when it is plugged in if you can get it to work at all. I tried for over an hour to get it to work and nothing.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Does not work when plugged in.

Poor Quality

George V., Newegg
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Its a shame this product is so marginal because if they had ignored the bean counters and used a superior quality battery and charging system this would be a job well done. I am very careful with any new battery gadget. I fully charge them and FULLY let them DRAIN at least 3 times to get maximum battery capacity. Within a month this battery system went from a "close to advertised" 6.5 hours battery life to maybe close to 4 hrs.
  • Pros: Plug & Play - USB 2.0 compliant Controls on headset Auto shut off to conserve battery (Believe me they need it!)
  • Cons: Battery Design is poor (charging sub system) and the battery quality is as cheap as they dare try to get away with.

Its junk

Kenneth R., Newegg
25 May 2010
  • Summary: It was great while it lasted. I could go from the basement to the 2nd floor and still have good communication. But after two weeks of regular use (3-4hrs a day), charged when I went to bed, it stopped working and the charging light just kept blinking. tried 3 different cables, even took the unit apart to check internal wiring...
  • Pros: Sounds great, long range
  • Cons: stopped taking a charge after 2 weeks of use. the charging light just blinks repeatedly and the unit no longer takes or holds a charge.

Disappointed

Paul W., Newegg
4 February 2010
  • Summary: The installation for this headset was really easy, and the sound was very good! And hey, it's wireless, you can't beat that. However, the one that I purchased had problems from day one. I would be playing a game and all of a sudden the sound was gone. The "paired" light on the USB would flash, meaning that the headset became unpaired from the USB adapter, thus no sound.
  • Pros: Wireless Awesome Sound
  • Cons: Never really worked well
