Summary: I bought these headphones based on the manufacturer; I already owned a pair of their noise canceling headphones and have had no problem with them. I needed these headphones for use with Skype and I enjoy using them because they leave my hands free to type and write while conducting my calls.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Excellent sound quality and the microphone reaches the approval of those who are at the receiving end on my calls:-) There is one little item that could be improved...... the volume control - situated on one earphone - is controlled by rotating the small depression clockwise / anticlockwise. The indent in the control could be a little deeper or have a simple raised edge to allow ease of use. The moulded markings (Black on Black) are not easy to see at first.
Summary: My son uses these for voice recognition and wears them constantly. Or so it seems. The quality of the mic. is much better than may we have tried and makes a huge difference. Quite expensive but well made, definitely worth the money.
Summary: The noise cancelling system, that cant be turn off make the start of talk to be clipped and don't work well. Couldn't find any fix for it. The speak sound is not the best, had better results with other headsets or even the laptop mic. Disappointing headset.
Summary: After having been through lots of different makes and models I thought I would try this headset. Not only does it sounds great but the microphone is loud and clear for skype/teamspeak etc. I have now had this headset for over a year and have had no issue and although they are light and feel flimsy they have been trod on/run over by a seat/used by a child and still are absolutely fine. For the money this is a great headset.
Summary: As a severely disabled individual, it is impossible for me to use a keyboard or mouse and therefore I have to rely on voice control for successful operation of my PC. Over the last few years I have tried a number of different headsets, many of which are be more expensive than the PC230's. Upon arrival, I was slightly disappointed to see that these headphones do not have a USB connection and therefore I was unsure as to the digital capabilities.
Summary: After using the PC131's for years and watching their price slowly rise from £17 to £40 I decided to look for a cheaper alternative. This headset isn't bad, but they are more flimsy than the PC131's and the sound quality is worse. The PC131's pack more of a punch, have deeper bass, are better built and feel more comfortable. I strongly suggest the PC131's over these...
Summary: They weren't as padded as they look and I was quite disappointed with them, look cheaper than they are! My boyfriend liked them however and that was the main thing. He uses them often for over a year and has never had any problem with them, they even survive a few drops and "oops I just stood on them" moments!
