Excerpt: 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.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS IT IS NOT WORTH ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY AND IS TARNISHING THE PLANTRONICS NAME BADLY.
Pros: Sounds okay.
Cons: 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 ...
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: I bought these/got them today and already hate them. I paid £46 for these and the range is supposed to be 40ft...erm no...it isn't, as soon as I walk into the next room no one on the call can hear me. Also on the online instruction it says that the wifi may be affected by a few things..
