So Far, So Good

Mike, Staples

  • Excerpt: Purchased these headlines to replace a corded pair of Microsoft ones that the cable had gotten run over repeatedly by my office chair. The installation was very easily on my Windows 7 32-bit computer (plug and play). Skype sensed the new equipment and automatically defaulted to it. The wireless adapter requires one USB port and the headset needs to be charged using an included USB to micro-USB cord requires another.

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!

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...

Perfect for the Price

  • Summary: While you can't configure the headset buttons, you can usually remap keys on games to recognize these key presses (honestly how many of you use the P or N buttons in a game). This can allow you for instance to walk away from the computer during a travelling portion or other boring task and still do a few controls as you can still hear what's going on in the game. If something bad happens you can get back to your computer to handle the situation.
  • Pros: Relatively cheap wireless headset with a few extra buttons that can send keystrokes. Good range: only when I'm towards the other end of my house does it go out of range, if my computer and USB dongle were towards the center instead of one side of the house, I'd probably have full coverage. Great quality audio (for me, but I'm not an audiophile) Fast battery charging as others have said about 2 hours to fully charge. Automatic mic muting when the boom is up is nice, th...
  • Cons: Can't use it and charge the headset at the same time, but several wireless headsets do this as well and should you really be using them/gaming for more than 6-8 hours straight? Extra buttons (Play/Pause and Next) aren't configurable. Appears the driver takes a best guess as to if you have Windows Media Player or possibly Winamp open (haven't tried these out though) and sends/emulates a keyboard stroke. if it can't figure it out it defaults to some letters like P and N...

Quality Product

Joseph R., Newegg
17 February 2013
  • Summary: When I first tried it, it was a large step up from my old headphones. My friends could hear me much better, and I could hear them. I spent 5-10 minutes installing (most of the difficulty was in moving my rack mount tower to plug in the usb adapter in the rear. During this time I was charging it, so when I hopped on, my talk time only lasted about 20 minutes and I was back on my old headset :( RTM, and it requires 4 hours out of the box, so if you want to use these for...
  • Pros: Comfortable, very easy to install, good microphone, good earphones, good range, really isolates sound.
  • Cons: Cannot charge and use at the same time, need to charge 4 hours for first use, I can hear my heart beat when they are on.
