I am a regular contributor to This Week in Media, a show produced by the Pixel Corps and often streamed line on Leo Laporte s TWiT network. After a considerable amount of research ahead of my first appearance, I picked up a Plantronics .audio 655 headset.

I was not disappointed. This is an exceptional headset especially for those looking to start podcasting.

Audio in both directions is crystal clear. The microphone picks up a considerable range of sound for a sub $40 product. No driver installs were necessary on my Mac, just plug in and point your application at the headset which appears as a "Generic USB audio device." Audio output is equally clear, due in part to the noise isolation achieved through the "ear muff" design.

I share the concerns of other Amazon reviewers in regards to the quality of the connection cable. It is very thin and the connection points feel fragile. Additionally, the entire device is a bit bulky and doesn t transport well, so gamers looking for something small and lightweight to carry to events may want to look elsewhere. And as great as the noise isolation is, it isolates so much noise that it is often difficult to hear yourself talking.

The bottom line? If you re a podcaster looking for an inexpensive way to get started look no further. Gamers and skypers might want to look for something a little less bulky and portable.

Used plantronics .audio 90 and similar a few times, bought this cos they were on sale. Resume: horrible, they seem to randomly work on any computer (tested on 3 diff computers), keep getting an error saying USB device not recognized, and that error keeps showing, sometimes they work for a couple of minutes, and stop again.

Im not sure if its a problem with my headphones or is a combination of factors that s causing those errors, don t take any chances and get something else non usb imo, im using gamecom 1, old but they do the job, also, much more comfortable than this model.

If it weren t for the problems that I had, I would totally recommend this headset. The sound quality isn t amazing, but for the low price, it is pretty great, and multiple people have complimented about how well they can hear me over Skype.

The problem?

The headphone sound quality when plugged into my laptop is disgusting. Everything is garbled and broken. It works beautifully on my desktop, but barely at all on my laptop. Unless you know that this headset will work on your computer, I don t recommend it.
