Labtec 342 Headset

 

I will probably will use these for a little bit then order a nice good set like the PLANETRONICS 367 CLOSED EAR headset, then these will be a gift to someone else...hehehe.

Pros are that they are only $9.99 plus shipping. They seem to work out of the box. ehhh thats about it

I gave an older cheap white headset that was LABTEC and they were heavenly compared to these new ones. The old white ones played louder, fit more comfortably, and kept on ticking. I wish I hadn't given them away now. These new ones fit too tightly, are...

Great Set

 

I have had these for 8 mths and they have worked flawlessly. no one has complained about my transmissions and the sound is clear. They are so comforable that I walked away from the PC twice and pulled them from my head, therefore the repair,...

All work well, comfortable, adjustable, extended wear times, long cord, seperate plugs, foam covered, adjustable mic, good pickup, sound

Boom rachet not the best, but ok on my set, a little loose, had to repair wire

Labtec 980232-0403 3.5mm Supra-aural Stereo 342 Headset

 

I used Vista's sound adjustment and maxed out the microphone volume. Works perfectly with Ventrillo set at half volume, which is all I'm going to use the mic for.

Very comfortable. Good sound quality. Microphone crystal clear using Vista. Inexpensive

Lousy Mic

 

I bought 2 and only opened 1. Maybe I have a dud, since others liked the mic. But I'm afraid to open the other.

It looks nice and is comfortable enough. The speakers are fine. I like the long 8' cord for my situation

The mic pickup is way too weak. I adjusted PC to max volume and still can hardly hear it. The boom is short - only reaches corner of mouth. I have to push it against my mouth to hear it at all

Mic GREAT

 

The behind-the-ear style headsets don't hurt your ear, but get uncomforatble. That's why I chose these. -I use this for gaming, and use my speakers for sound most of the time because the quality of sound coming out of the headphones could be better....

Very, very, very, very outstanding mic quality, sounds like my old 40 dollar headset ; Good mic boom length ; Comfortable on ear ; Really cool design on the side where the earpiece is ; 3.5mm jack, doesn't steal a USB port ; AMAZING quality for the price

Thin foam padding on mic boom as well as the ears ; You can't extend/retract the mic, the boom only moves up and down ; The headphones(ears) aren't the greatest quality

Great headset, but doesn't last

 

I must admit this is one of the best headsets you can get for this amount of money, the sound is good and they are very comfortable to wear with a long cable. However, I have been through 3 of these and they do not last. The audio quality reduces, the...

Review, plus solving problem with mic.

 

The sound that comes out of these headphones is great. I've had some real bass type songs on that it handles brilliantly. I mainly bought the headset for its mic and communication use. I was extremely annoyed with it for the first half hour and fiddled...
