Summary: I had been using a similar headset from the same manufacturer for years, and when the old headset failed I decided to replace with the same. Everything looks the same in the new version. The problem is with the material they used for the ear hook. It is very inelastic, and if you use the headset, as I do, for hours, you start feeling your ear, and eventually you have to take it off because of the discomfort it causes.
Summary: I am deaf in one ear and I am using this at work when supporting customers on the phone. It allows me to keep my hands free for computer dial in support without supporting the phone on my shoulder and cramping my neck since I can't change sides.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Good Sound, Lightweight, Over ear not head
Summary: I purchased this to use with my cellphone while at home. Unfortunatly the headset is very uncomfortable and the earpiece does not position itself properly in the ear to allow for good sound. I tried to remedy this with the built in volume control but it does not seem to function properly. As a result I will be returning this item.
Summary: This product is lightweight but there are a couple of problems. The round plastic in the middle rubs your ear and it sometimes screeches when you connect with the other party. It is also difficult to fit on your ear. I would not recommend it.
Summary: Good basic headset for home use. Saves me from having to hold the phone while I work or on extended calls. Volume control doesn't work, but that's okay because it's loud enough. Merchant had a great total price [...]. Very satisfactory experience.
Pros: Clear Signal, Comfortable, Easy To Use, Good Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: One Admiral, one Lt. Colonel, and seven PhDs ... and the e-conferencing headsets would not fit their laptops. On the list of "headsets" that come up on a Staples search, there is no specification identifying these as phone-only. A flasher directing non-tech customers to "go deeper" to ID specific applications would have saved us. Sigh.
Summary: A lot of phones will have a jack on them to use an external headset like this one. Our portable phone I use during my shift at work has one and the problem I had was making lengthy reservations while trying to hold the phone up on my shoulder. I decided to try this out as a remedy. It works just like I expected it too. Plantronics makes good stuff the microphone on here may be better than the one on the actual phone and its like a $500 phone.
Pros: Clear Signal, Durable, Easy To Use, Good Sound, Lightweight
Summary: I have use this headset for years (heavy daily use) and it work on my cordless phone flawlessly. The headset is very comfortable, easy to use and durable. Highly recommend and as good as unit(s) that cost 4x as much.
