This is exactly what i was looking for!


I do have to say that his headset is lightweight and comfortable. The mic boom is hardly in the way. I think the price is just right for the headset as well. I definitely recommend this to anyone.

Out of box staticy


Looks nice and actually feels for 1 hr. No software needed, automatically installed within seconds

This is the second one I have had of these headsets. Both failed on the exact same thing. The USB connector. the soldering is appaling and very flimsy. I use a PC and a laptop so I use the headset for both, it doesnt like to be kept unplugged and then...

Headset - Volume Unreliable


I use this headset for remote training and the headset volume is unreliable. Suddenly the volume in the built-in speaker within the headset is deafening and then other times the feedback is really bad (crackling loud). When it does work you have to...
