SNAP GOES THE PLASTIC

Jeremy R., Newegg
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Ridiculous how easily these break! The most vital point on the headset (where pressure is applied) is not re-inforced! Horrible design. PS - I am a huge plantronics fan - best sound out there. Burned twice by them now, you'd think I'd learn. DON'T BUY, WILL BREAK!
  • Pros: Plantronics has the best sound (highs and lows)
  • Cons: 6 months in, SNAP goes the plastic. This happened on my GEN 1 770 also, thought they'd fix it with the 780... NOPE!!! Ridiculous

Sound great, Plastic horrid

Keith R., Newegg
2 April 2014
  • Summary: First time ever using anything from Plantronics and feeling very discouraged to ever look at their products again. I want quality products that will last, not break within a year.
  • Pros: Great sound, and very comfortable headset.
  • Cons: I take great care of my headsets so that they will last me a long time. My last headset was a Turtlebeach and lasted me well over 4 years. So a little less than 8 months I go to put them on and SNAP! The plastic right where the headband felt meets snaps.

Disappointed

Brian V., Newegg
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Thought I was gonna get a good deal. Had bought Plantronics stuff in the past and have been VERY happy with the results. Tried this and regretted buying it. Didn't even last 1 hr. in my house after setup before I brought back to store for full refund.
  • Pros: Got it for about $50 at a local B&M store because they had wrong thing listed for the price.
  • Cons: Rather small drivers if you have a big head sub-par audio horrible driver/software no inline volume control cheap feel of construction

Very Displeased

OnSite C., Newegg
26 July 2013
  • Summary: Creating positional audio with only two speakers is some where between improbable and impossible. If you want positional audio the inexpensive option, and the best one, is to purchase and setup an actual surround sound system. Only if you can not do this for reasons other than the cost should you consider headphones. The headphones you will need for positional audio will inevitably have more than one driver in each earpiece...
  • Pros: The sounds is pretty solid, even has respectable lows for a headset.
  • Cons: I've owned two of these now (not from newegg). And I couldn't be more disappointed. Both headsets have bit the dust in a 3 foot drop to the floor. Certainly not ideal treatment... but hard to avoid as well. The cheap plastic headband can't take even the slightest tumble and both breaks were in the headband right where it meet the metal arm supporting on earpiece. The boom mic was also a constant problem. It picked up a great deal of background noise and my breathing n...

horrible

Dudley M., Newegg
17 January 2013
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: they are not shaped to fit human ears, are very uncomfortable and sound terrible. It sounded like the speakers were underwater. Adjusting settings made no difference, they sounded like mud.

Pathetic

Mark Curtis, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: The headband actually snapped after just 3 months of normal usage and this is without being heavy handed. I refuse to buy any more Products unless they get of rid of the "Mcdonalds toy quality" plastics used.

Free Game Not Valid

Thomas O'Brien, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: The product was supposed to come with a downloadable free game of your choice. On receiving the product, the code to redeem the game expired over four months before I ordered the item, and therefore no longer valid.

Should have listened to the 1 stars.

LewisL21, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I am very tempted to give these more as I was impressed with the sound quality and clarity of the mic. However, I did read the review before purchasing this, including the 1 stars, stating how the connectors between the head band and the earpieces broke easily. I decided to ignore this as my #1 choice of earphones (for music) get given the same sort of negative reviews but I look after my earphones very well and they last me long enough.
