Summary: The pictures of this item are wrong and doesn't do the headset justice. I am writing this because I am pleasantly surprised by what I received. The PC 26 headset is much better than the one they picture here. It has a solid USB plug that lights up blue on connection, a volume control on mute switch that is in the cord, has a flexible mic that can be moved closer to your mouth, great noise canceling and sound is crisp.
Summary: Sounds Great. Very Comfortable. BUT - One snapped as I was slightly stretching it open to put over my head -- product it is a bit flimsy. Amazon exchanged it for a new one. I am being much more careful with the new one. But as long as it does not snap, I like it flimsy. I can wear it all day. VERY lightweight and comfortable.
Summary: I was looking for a cheap replacement headset to replace the one I had been using for years because the cat decided to chew through the wire. Then, I decided to replace "cheap" with "USB." One other factor was that since nobody could ever get my attention when I had my old headset on, maybe a one-sided headset would help everyone out in the long run. That's how I found this snazzy little headset.
Summary: I got this for VOIP and conferencing. The sound is good for that. Not really usable for music though or for anything critical. Limited adjustability of the headset can be a problem. The boom mic also has limited adjustability and the fixed distance of the mic from the mouth can be a problem in very noisy environments as can the lack of isolation especially as this only is a single ear phone design. Over all pretty good particularly for the money.
Summary: I have rarely been disappointed with Sennheiser products and absolutely love this headset - my company recently switched to VOIP and I needed a headset for traveling. Pros: Light and comfortable Excellent sound quality - not quite as good as the HD-650s that I have but hey - 5% of the cost.
Summary: I ordered this item from ANTOnline. Warning, do not do business with them. They sent me the wrong item, and then wanted me to pay extra shipping to get the correct one for their mistake!! I have this headset in the binaural version. It is functional, nothing more.
Summary: I bought this headset only to return it immediately after. That's because of a major design flaw, this headset is designed so that it does NOT sit on your head or back of head or upper neck...which ever you prefer. The cheap design of the 'head' part just goes limp and the headset falls off if this is sitting anywhere other than the top of your head.
Summary: Das Sennheiser PC 26 ist das optimale Mikrofon für Spracherkennung. Es liegt leicht auf dem Kopf und man spürt es erst nach längerem Tragen (be nach ca. 1 Stunde). Die Erkennungsqualität ist z.B. in Verbindung mit DRAGON Dictate aus meiner Erfahrung ungeschlagen. Ich hatte andere, günstigere Produkte in Verwendung, die aber (teils bei weitem) nicht die gleiche Erkennungsgenauigkeit zeigten. Dazu kommt die traditionell gute Verarbeitung der Sennheiser Produkte.
