Summary: When I see the name Plantronics on a headset, I immediately assume it's going to have a great noise cancelling microphone and excellent voice reproduction. I've used a Plantronics monaural headset for years and just don't like talking on a phone without one anymore. The sound quality on my old headset was so good, it almost sounded like you were sitting in the same room with all the other people on the call.
Summary: Compared to an older Plantronics headset that I have these feel flimsy and don't grip my head tightly enough. I use them with Plantronics Circumnaural Ear Cushions (Part # 83195-01) which help block out background noise a little better than the included on-ear foam cushions which are made an overly soft and scratchy material.
Summary: My employer only provides the single ear version. When we went to an "open office" concept, this binaural headset brought the caller (and conference calls!) to both ears and blocked much of the "open office" effect. Also a must have for the hard of hearing. Don't forget to order the proper Plantronics adapter, in my case I needed "Replacement Quick Disconnect Coil Cable For M-12 Amplifier And All H-Series" for our Cisco VOIP phones.
Summary: I am very satisfied using this headset with my iphone5 and the needed adapter to plug into the phone base. I have relied on Plantronics headsets for nearly 30 years for conducting phone interviews.
Customers won't hear garbage trucks, leaf blowers, or construction!
10 July 2014
Summary: I work from home, providing tech support in a call center. After moving from the quiet country to the city, I was concerned about callers hearing garbage trucks and such. I've had to tune out garbage trucks right outside the window, a jackhammer across the lot, and leaf blowers about 20 feet away. I've asked customers if they hear any of the background noise, and all have said no--amazing!
Summary: I decided to order this headset when my sister strongly suggested this brand. It came in perfect condition and quickly too. I work from home so it had to be comfortable and definitely durable. It hasn't disappointed me yet. You can adjust the mouthpiece and the headpiece. I understand now why she swore by it. I have never had a problem out of this headset, and I couldn't imagine working from home without it. Strongly recommended.
Summary: This head set is very comfortable, great sound and the microphone is in a great place. I love the dual ear phones makes picking up voices on bad connection soooo much easier. Have had them now about 4 months and they are working perfectly.
