Excerpt: Wrote a previous review about the product but decided to update with my latest experience when a part broke. The volume rocker switch started feeling loose and would not longer work anymore. Not a deal breaker since the volume can be adjusted in software, but annoying. I filled out a warranty request on the Plantronics website and that's where the magic happened. I was about 1 week outside their 1 year warranty, but they honored it anyway.
Excerpt: Excellent sound quality from mic and speaker. You can tell it's not meant to be hifi, but it seems like the tone is tweaked for speech, which is good for noisy environments. I deduct one star for software support. In Win7, if you don't install the plantronics software, it can be frustrating to use in certain ways. For example, when using Skype, and using the headset mic but sending audio through external speakers, the mic won't work at all.
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: There is no dedicated ringer sound or button to pick-up calls from Skype, however you can still use it as regular headset. There is similar product using Bluetooth, however from my experience BT microphone sound quality is not even close to the DECT system (like this). Sound quality and background noise filtering is exeptional per comments from my conversation partners. This is replacing Linksys DECT 'handy' oryginally designed for Skype - after 6 or so years.
Excerpt: Bought one of these for a travel headset for VOIP. Love the concept, but there is something fundamentally wrong with the design. The headset simply will not hold a charge! Contacted Plantronics and to their credit, they sent me a new one - no questions asked. It was defective too! Believe me, this is not user error. I followed the instructions to the letter. The first headset would say it was charged and then drain to nothing in minutes.
Summary: Достоинства Отличная гарнитура. Очень удобно сидит на ухе, несколько раз даже уезжал с ней из дома забыв на ухе. Дистанция около 20 метров "по пересеченной местности" (через 2 кирпичных стены и одну гипрочную). Недостатки У меня версия для Microsoft она, как мне показалось, менее удобна. По сравнению с 420 стандартной не удается нормально управлять кнопкой, посему приходится ходить с включенной передачей и автоприемом на смартфоне.
