Plantronics .Audio 995 wireless headphones

 

These wireless headphones have good range and decent sound quality

Good microphone, comfortable for on-ear headphones, good range and battery life

No 3.5mm connection option, inferior sound to wired headphones

If you value mobility over sound quality, the Plantronics .Audio 995 wireless headset is a great option. We never experienced audio break-up, and the decent sound quality and good microphone made voice communication a breeze.

Plantronics .Audio 995 Wireless Headset

 

Plantronics applies its Bluetooth headset experience to a wireless PC headset.

Before you can use the set it must be charged. This is performed through USB with a provided cable, but unlike Creative's effort you can't use the headset when plugged in. This is a fairly significant oversight in our minds, since there will always be...

Plantronics Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset Review

 

1 Flares 1 Flares × A little while ago we took at two Xbox 360 headsets from Plantronics and were very impressed with what they offered for the money. We did however comment that the Wireless X95 headset would be a much better product if it featured an...

Plantronics Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset Review

 

Good battery life and quick charge time, Natural feeling bass with the right amount of punch, Very comfortable and gives good wireless freedom, Very quick and easy to set-up – it just works!, Quite a light headset

Not the best fitting around the ears., Very occasional electronic distortion, Range isn’t quite ‘around the house

Final Thoughts I really like this device, the wireless communication just works. You plug it in and turn the headset on and instantly have sound. This is also the same for the microphone and it just simplifies things drastically. The headset also turns...

Easy plug and play, great range and quality

 

I'd definitely recommend these. They're the kind people use at my job, that's how I found them. I chose them because I've witness many people use them for 8 hours a day for a year or more and they still work. And the price is really competitive too.

I've been hunting for good wireless headphones for years. Tried a few bad brands and thought I'd never get something good. But these ones are great. - Very easy to plug and play (Win 7). The audio drivers on my laptop are a bit wonky, but I can plug...

- They fit pretty tightly and can get uncomfortable. That said, I don't mind and regularly keep them on for hours at a time. - Not bluetooth connection. Rather a proprietary dongle. But it works really well.

PLANTRONICS .Audio 995

 

I have a friend with this same headset and he's had the mic when positioned up to mute not mute. Luckily nothing embarrassing happened but I wish there was an actual mute button at times. And as I mentioned, wish there was a little app that could warn...

Decent range after moving the wifi dongle up away from my tower/monitors. When it was plugged to the back of my tower only got about 20ft. When moved up to beside my monitor I got about 30ft and with it up on the hutch of my desk I get 40-45ft. Battery...

Wish there was a battery level indicator so I knew if the battery was low and to plug it in to charge. Currently it just will drop with no warning and no auditory clue of why. There also seems to be a slight delay in the microphone. When my wife and I...

Great for skype on windows, mac not so much

 

Im updating my review to 4 stars, as for us Mac users, Skype does not feature any kind of Sidetone option in software so you need to find hardware that does it. These DO NOT. And as such with 2 earphones, you cannot hear your own voice, and end up...

No interference from Wifi, long range, good battery

There is no sidetone / foldback on this model, and according to Plantronics rep, no model they make.

GREAT Headset!!

 

After a year of various technologies and options for a headset for my mac, these are finally what I was looking for. Wireless, mac skype integration that I can wear all day and not worry about snagging the cord on.

Absolutely no interference from Wifi, sound is perfectly clear with no pops or clicks. Ive used bluetooth, and some other RF brand headsets with no satisfaction as my 2.4/5ghz router is on my desk, and I got a lot of pops, clicks, and extremely short...

They are not Over the ear, they are On ear cans, so after a while they can get 'pinchy' as the headband for me isnt Quite wide enough but for normal work day they're fine
