Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


This headset works very well. It's comfortable enough for me that I have made the mistake, more than once, of forgetting I am wearing it and walking away from my desk while still wearing it.

Lightweight, very comfortable, clear

Only one weakness ... the rubber "behind the ear" piece is likely to eventually split. However it took my first one 3 years for that to happen. So, for me, it's not really a concern.

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


easy to use, good sound quality (especially the anti-wind technology). i bike a lot, and the people i talked to couldn't even tell that i was outside. works a lot better than the other headsets I've tried in the past. the microphone boom is a little...

GREAT anti-wind technology...sound quality is very good, much better than 2 other headsets i've tried in the past

looks a little dorky, especially the tan colored version (i thought i was getting the white/clear one)

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


Overall, an excellent headset. I would have ideally liked something a bit more compact, but from what I read this is one of the few wired headsets available which is both durable and produces both high quality incoming and outgoing audio. I did...

Good connection to phone-good to excellent sound quality for incoming audio-most people agree they can hear me better when I am using it-works with my nokia phone (using the 2.5mm version)

Actual earpiece isn't amazingly comfortable-little difficult to get on in a hurry-awkward shape makes it difficult to wrap up compactly

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


I purchased headsets for all of my staff in advance of the new California "hands free" driving legislation. The headsets that I purchased fit most of their cell phones, and represent a high quality product that is very reasonably priced. We are very...

Lightweight, good value, great quality, and easy to use.

The headset was not appropriate for some of the older model mobile phones used by my staff.

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


I like it. The voices are clean on both sides. The headset stays in your ear even while shaking my head. The mute switch is Nice when you just need to vent at the person on the other end without getting Fired. I researched headsets for weeks and ended...

Light weight. The ear bud projects sound comfortablely into your ear. The Inline Volume & Mute control is VERY handy. Comfortable to wear for extended amounts of time.

My girlfriend has small ears and this unit doesn't fit super, but it fits OK.. The inline volume & mute controls helps to compendsate for this headset's short comings.

This ear piece is great. It's clear and comfortable. Allows me to move all over the house with clear communications through my phone. Better than the built-in speaker phone too. Wow!

Good sound, comfortable, easy to use. Great value for the usefulness you'll get out of this handsfree ear piece

None that I observed

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


very nice headset for the price. it is very clear and loud, with a listening volume control and mute toggle built into the line. wind reduction works - with a fan blowing at me, people could not really tell and still hear me clearly (my old headset...

clear on both ends, wind reduction works

little weird to put on, especially in a hurry

Nice design that fits confortably on the ear- Clear sound- Reasonable price

Slight delay while talking

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


I really wanted to like this headset, but eliminating wind noise is not worth the discomfort. Here's a summary of the major things I liked/disliked: Comfort: The earpiece that fits into your ear needs to be more round - its oval shape put too much...

Great sound (incoming), eliminates wind noise, volume control and mute button

Uncomfortable to wear for longer than 30 minutes, looks odd when worn, mute button difficult to use

Plantronics Plantronics MX505 Mobile Headset


Prior to this purchase, I'd tried about three different headsets. Everytime, the person on the other end had a hard time hearing me. This headset finally solved that problem. Unfortunately, only the version for Nokia phones has an answer/end...

Great sound from both ends of the conversation.

An answer/end button would make this product better.
