Fantastic, comfortable, sounds great


This item does not come with an amplifier and does not plug into a computer. I plan to obtain a computer version of this headset. Even if it doesn't feel like it's in place, both you and your called party can hear each other just fine. It appears to be...

Impossibly light and compact ; Convertible for headset, over-the-ear, and behind-the-head style ; Adjustable in no fewer than six points (see Cons) ; Clever cable arrangement (see Cons) ; Nearly invisible when using video conferencing

It takes too many adjustments to switch from left ear to right ear use, including moving the cable, so pick an ear to use and stick with it ; I think the microphone should not need to be reversed when switching ears, but it does, and it's awkward to...

Connector Please


I've since ordered the cord 27190-01 and this connector does not work. I'm working with New Eggg to reccomend and ship me the correct part.

I expect this will be a great device once I can connect it to my phone

Headset requires a seperate connector in order for it to be used. It is not apparent this additional part is needed for operation

The earloop for over the ear operation can not possibly fit any human ear. I have a not unreasonable goal of having the receiver to my ear at the same time the microphone is in the vicinity of my mouth. No matter what adjustment I make, it can't be...

Superior Comfort! Great sound and no ear pain.


Awesome as I work in a call center and having a headset like this releases the pressure on your ear. Totally adjustable, I forget it's even on it's so light. As always with Plantronics, great sound.

Well manufactured and designed


Good headset - would purchase again; I prefer the ergonomic design where the ear piece is not pressed up against the lobe.
