I forget that I am wearing it

 

I am a heavy Skype user. The headset is so comfortable that I forget I am wearing it. Sound quality is stunning. Setup - none. Using the USB gadget they supply you dont even have to discover and pair ; Great product

None so far

As a gaming headset

 

I got tired of having big headsets that covered my head and made me feel really warm. The cord would also be a problem for me, accidently pulling at it and weakening/breaking the connections. And I always felt really silly wearing these massive...

Lightweight, stylish(tactical style), portable, decent audio quality. Not too bad as a gaming headset for certain picky gamers

Battery life only lasts about 4-6 hours tops, but comes with a cord that plugs into USB 2.0 to charge it while I'm using it if needed ; It gets alittle uncomfortable on certain pressure points of your ear, but they give you a mulitude of ear pieces...

Great sound quality, dongle keeps breaking

 

I'm on my third dongle. The hinge keeps cracking. It is a shame a plastic hinge on such an expensive headset is its failure point. When I've called for replacements, the CS rep says I'm the only one who has ever had this problem, making me feel like it...

Sound Canceling seems to be an issue

 

We are using Ring DNA and it appears to be an issue with how to setup Mac mini and Savi440W for sound canceling. So far users are not happy, is there a way to make them work right, these are not cheap headsets?

Poor quality, constantly drops audio

 

Bought this a month ago and wish I had gone with anything else. Constantly drops audio while on the phone.

Battery Issues

 

I work in a company where we are constantly making calls from our computer and most of us have the Savi 440, we are around 40 users with this product. It is a good looking headset, the first month we didn't have problems, but in the second month the...

Poor Battery Life

 

This headset comes with lots of nice earpieces for a comfortable fit, but the battery life has been terrible. I'm lucky if I can make it through an hour call before it goes dead, even after charging it on the cradle all night. Very disappointed.

Very poor performance on Mac OS

 

I have always had Plantronics product and they performed very well. This last headset (W420-M) is *really* bad. It does not work with Microsoft Lync on Mac OS but what's a lot worse is that it stops streaming audio without any indication. When not in a...

Great voice quality

 

I bought this a few weeks ago and I've had alot of compliments already on the voice quality. It's nice not being chained to the desk as well, although since I cannot install the software I have to answer the call on the computer's call manager and not...
