Summary: I've occasionally done business with headsets direct over the last few years and they always come through. Though they were out of stock of this particular item at the time of the order, someone called me right away to let me know. The user is happy with the headset, so that makes me happy!
Excerpt: This is a wonderful product and love the wireless capability which helps me multi-task alot while working from home !: ). I would recommend a plantronics product to anyone considering one. The only issue I had with this model was the fact that I was unable to mute between calls as my friends who used the same product were able to . B&H Photo customer service took care of my concern promptly and have exchanged the product for a replacement .
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase. I was looking for a comfortable headset I could use for hour+ meetings via Skype and I'm doing more and more voice input instead of keyboard input when writing on my computer. Very comfortable and light weight. Surprisingly clear audio for a single ear headset (I'm moving from a dual ear headset). People compliment me on my voice clarity and my speech to text software and the headset are well matched.
Not outstanding mic pickup if using for dictation software
23 December 2014
Summary: It works but I have been using it for a while as a headset for dictation to Dragon Dictate which is what my review is based on. My problems with this product : - not good battery life - doesn't switch off, and seems to drain somehow, so I have had to remove the battery to be sure - had to get a spare battery (much advised) due to the above problems and need to recharge as battery life is not great in constant use - doesn't work that wonderfully for Dragon Dictate, I...
Summary: Good sound quality and highly comfortable, which is what you would expect at this price. Straightforward installation in Max OS X. Works with Skype, but you still have to answer calls manually. Have had some cases where the speech connection gets garbled up and this basically requires a re-boot of Skype and/or Mac to fix it. Hard to say whether this is a problem with Skype, the Plantronics s/w, or general compatibility (Skype on Mac has many issues).
Summary: This is a nice little headset that once set-up is very easy to use. When you first open the box you will find several parts, which you have to assemble, but you only have to do this once, is relatively straight forward and should only take around 15 minutes or so to complete. There is a CD included in the box, but if like me, you're primary use for the headset is Skype, and you are running Windows 7 or later, there is no need to install the Plantronics software at all,...
Summary: excellent product, great with sound clarity. Excellent with speech recognition software such as Dragon from Nuance Tip: A lot of people complain that there isn't a power off switch on the headset and as a consequence the battery runs down whilst not in use, so needs to be continually charged in the holder. to preserve battery power simply disconnect the battery when not in use.
