I only use these occasionally - for no more than one hour at a time. If I used them for extended periods of time, they would become uncomfortable on my ears, I believe. However, the audio quality is excellent, both for my hearing and my speaking voice. The attached volume control works very well to lower or raise the incoming voices as necessary. If you want wireless, this is not a solution. But if you only need a headset infrequently, and don t want to spend the additional money for the wireless Plantronic, these can t be beat.

Although I didn t purchase the Plantronics headset for music - more for telephony - comments (even raves) by some reviewers that the sound was just fine were nevertheless encouraging. (That said, I do listen to a lot of music at the computer, but mostly through speakers.) Overall, I have to rate this headset a net "2," with major demerits for sound quality, which I weight more heavily than the set s positive features - these, apart from mic pickup/transmission, are are secondary attributes. The audio reproduction is simply not very good. I recognize this may be a "box variation" issue and particular to my set, but without a basis for comparison, I nevertheless surmise not: I ve had similarly poor sound reproduction on other relatively cheap headsets. With these Plantronics, sound at every point in the spectrum is muffled; highs and lows seem clipped (the speaker frequency is suppose to be between 20Hz and 20kHz, but I d love to be able to bench-test that). CDs that through other speakers or headsets play perfectly crisply, with distinct inner orchestral voices and sharp vocals, become muddied and diffuse when heard through these earphones. Plain voice is similarly muffled. On the other hand, the set is comfortable, looks more substantial than its low price would suggest, and is plug and play, with volume controls and a mute button for voice. The mic also seems to transmit clearly - people hear me when I m speaking, even if I m not hearing then all that well. In short, I wouldn t purchase these again; they ll "do" - particularly as I ll probably be replacing them in about a year (that seems to be the life cycle of the fragile wiring on all these budget headsets). But you get pretty much what you pay for, don t you?

Man I was absolutely blown away from the bass on these babies, I loved it right from the start! Sound quality is amazing, and the mic quality is nice as well. People on my Ventrilo (chatting software) server instantly recognized I was using a new mic. The foam padding is nice too, on the ear part and at the top near the head. Overall great.
