Best headset for cordless phones


After going through a few headsets for my home phone, I finally called Plantronics and asked them what they recommended for a cordless home phone and this was the one. I was glad Dell had it in stock and so far, they also have the best price! Very...

I read reveiws before I purchased this. They were overwhelminly positive, and now I know why, this is a great headset! Great sound from the earpiece and great microphone.

Great for working


Whenever I used to work from home I would use this headset and I remember a time where my little brother was being obnoxious by playing really loud music, while I was working in the other room, somehow by the grace of God the customers I was assisting...

Plantronics MX500C Hands-free Earset

Great sound, questionable quality


Great sound and fit, but breaks on it own accord. Purchased the headset in Apr 2012. Warranty replaced in Oct 2012 and again in Jan 2013. Hard plastic from ear piece cracked at the seam, same place, same symptom both times. Used daily from home office....

Best I've Found


I've used many headsets over the years and this one is the best. I've used this one so much that I've worn some out but not because of poor quality. The only downside is the cord but that's part of why the clarity is so good. It is designed for many...
