Keep your charger close at hand


The battery on the headset wears down quickly. Your best bet is to keep it on the charger when it's not on your ear.

Not good for skype


I was very happy with the deal I got with this purchase. I read reviews and followed instructions. The voice is clear but keeps on disconnecting. I do not recommend buying this device.

Best Headset So Far


So happy to be rid of the wire. Complaints about my audio quality have disappeared. Use it daily for Skype conversations for International travel.

Decent Headset


Generally good product, and well worth it if you want a wireless headset for Skype

Fits comfortably on my ear(cant really speak for others), and I have been very pleased with the product. It isnt the best, but for the price, and the wireless functionality it is a good product

The sound quality is not the best. If you are looking for something with good sound, look elsewhere. Sounds fine when you are talking with one person, but music and multiple people talking is where the problem lies

Headset works


Bought this because the wireless headset I used broke, and replacements not available. Wanted something NOT bluetooth, as that tech has a few kinks to work out with connectivity. This was bought with the intent to clean up the wires around the systems...

Battery life is 8+ hrs on a charge, fits over the ear for a snug, close fit. Works with Skype, Voice Recognition. Distance from transmitter in home is about 20ft, but this is due to the structure of the building rather than limits to the device

Tinny 'telephone' quality audio. No enhancements to the sound. Volume is low to super low. Odd beeps & ; whistles while in operation

Great for moving around the office


Our office has three of these that we use for GoToMeetings and have found them great. Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to change the volume. They're a bit pricey, but we'd buy them again and will be recommending them to our sister companies.
