Summary: I have a friend with this same headset and he's had the mic when positioned up to mute not mute. Luckily nothing embarrassing happened but I wish there was an actual mute button at times. And as I mentioned, wish there was a little app that could warn you when the battery was getting low.
Pros: Decent range after moving the wifi dongle up away from my tower/monitors. When it was plugged to the back of my tower only got about 20ft. When moved up to beside my monitor I got about 30ft and with it up on the hutch of my desk I get 40-45ft. Battery life so far is good, get 8+ hours out of it....
Cons: Wish there was a battery level indicator so I knew if the battery was low and to plug it in to charge. Currently it just will drop with no warning and no auditory clue of why.

Summary: Im updating my review to 4 stars, as for us Mac users, Skype does not feature any kind of Sidetone option in software so you need to find hardware that does it. These DO NOT. And as such with 2 earphones, you cannot hear your own voice, and end up yelling/shouting.
Pros: No interference from Wifi, long range, good battery
Cons: There is no sidetone / foldback on this model, and according to Plantronics rep, no model they make.
Excerpt: I find this product meets my needs very well. The sound clarity is excellent. the ear pads are very comfortable to wear. I had used wired products before but found that the wire brushing against my shirt sometimes created static in my transmissions. Without the wire,this is not a concern.
Excerpt: Product seems to work fine. It was a little hard to setup for whatever reason but once it was setup it seemed to work just fine. The volume and sound seem to work really well and the clarity is good. I walked a few feet from my notebook and it still seemed to hold its volume and clarity.
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.
