acceptable

 

Has 1/8" plugs, one for mic, one for headphones. Comes with USB audio adapter, which has two 1/8" jacks in it, one for mic, one for headphones. Mic works well, quite adjustable

Bass is a little elevated and muddy. Fine for gaming, not recommended for music

great...for a while

 

like i said good for a while.... but then again i am hard on head sets i got about 8 broken ones in the closet...if your careful with it, it might last longer... great budget head set much better than the logitech ones i was using before...

comfortable, sounds good. mic is decent

left speaker quit working after about 8 months

Good headset

 

I wear glasses and I couldn't deal with the pain it causes during extended use so I returned it for the GameCom 777. Much better if your willing to shell out the money for it.

Decent sound quality ; Plenty of cable ; Excellent mic ; Small design

If you wear glasses they will start to hurt your ears after 45 minutes - 1 hour. The speakers are missing some highs. USB dongle is a waist since my Creative X-Fi card has much better quality

Excellent, reliable, just slightly uncomfortable

 

Great headset. Highly recommended if you're on a budget. I'm a gamer and wanted something with an amazing microphone and good sound quality, and that's exactly what Plantronics is providing here. If you want to step up, the new GameCom 777 is an...

Good sound quality, just a teeny bit harsh (I'm an audiophile), and kind of lacking in the very high frequency range. Good sounding bass, just not enough of it. Note: The sound quality can be GREATLY enhanced if you have an Equalizer on your computer's...

After long hours of use, the earpads tend to cause discomfort. When i bent my mic one time after owning the headset for many months, it now does not stay where i bent it to unless it is not extended (the QuickAdjust). Not a big deal, just thought I...

Worth the money

 

great for the price.. i would suggest them for anyone

Good sound, easy use, very long cable, quite durable I had them for almost a year with everyday use

the fabric on the earpieces began to peel away piece by piece. Also I had one earpiece actually fall off on me and there is no way to put it back on. (keep in mind all of this is after A LOT of wear and tear)

Consumer review by:

Nice head-set

 

Well-made, and performs as advertised. The wife loves the clarity of this set.

Great head-set. the wife using it for work. After a couple hours your ears might get a little sore, but that will happen with almost any head-set. So short of strapping two pillows to your head, this gear is great

None

great pair of headsets highly recommend, comfort on ears, able to use as usb or plug into soundcard

none i can see

Consumer review by:

pretty good overall

 

i had the .Audio 90 from plantronics which i feel were made of a higher grade quality and lasted me almost 3 years. i might be taking these back. the best set of headphones i've owned were high Sennheiser HD580, i'm just not prepared to spend that much...

great spacial sound with bright mids and a decent bass. the cushions sit well just on the ear and not enveloping it and have a soft touch. the usb feature is nice if you are running a receiver to your pc like i do and want to hook this up simultaneously

cheaply constructed as someone else mentioned. from the very thin wires to the extremely cheap plastic you can see instantly the lack of quality in materials

Consumer review by:

Surprising

 

Newegg got it here before they even posted a tracking number

They were definitely better then i expected. Mic is crystal clear and the speakers aren't that bad

Took a bit to get used to. I'm used to a lot of bass response from all of my audio equipment. And I'd say I'm a bit disappointed in the bass response from this headset, still not enough to take away an egg though

Great Deal

 

It's awesome that this headset has standard miniplugs plus a usb adapter. I use my old headset with this one's usb adapter, and now I can pipe my mp3s through my regular speakers, and still hear Ventrilo thanks to the usb adapter.

Standard miniplugs PLUS a USB adapter allowing the headset to appear as a separate audio device in Windows. You can plug ANY headset or speaker/mic combo into the USB adapter, which is great because I found the headset itself rather uncomfortable. The...

I wear glasses and that causes problems for me with wearing headsets. I got this one because a fellow four-eyes said that it didn't bother him, but I guess I'm just less tolerant than he is
