Audio 655 Stereo Headset

 

We wouldn't have ranked the .Audio 655 Stereo Headset so high if we didn't think it was a stellar product. The only difference between this VoIP USB headset and the .Audio 955 is the wireless capabilities. This small difference results in a $50 price...

This headset is Skype-certified, has a rotate-to-mute mic and built-in audio adjustments

Unfortunately, this headset isn’t wireless

Except for the cord, Plantronics’ .Audio 655 has all of the features of our top VoIP headsets.

Good sound, cheap plastic

 

I find it ironic that the packaging says "Incredibly Comfortable" prominently on the top. They were not comfortable at all for me.

Great sound

Uncomfortable and very cheap plastic - broke with little effort when I tried to stretch them a bit wider (I have a big head)

Gread sound, but this is not true Circumaural

 

I purchased those only because of the keyword "Circumaural", however this is not exactly true. Those are bigger than my other headsets but still not covering ears and going over them making a pain after some time.

Nice sound ; Volume control on a headset

Too small, probably it is circumaural for kids ; Mic is muted only when boom is lifted up (and you, basically not exactly sure about that). Would be nice to have a mute button and some indication ; 1 egg because a product doesn't correspond it's title

Not a Good Option for Schools

 

I run our computer lab at school where students use headphones for RosettaStone. I have two different types of headsets and this brand hasn't met my expectations. I was hopeful because the earphones are big and roomy and the boom can be adjusted, but...

voice stuck in my own head

 

all in all. not for me, I am a gamer who wears headphones ALL THE TIME, I would sooner go insane from the sound of my voice inside my head then anything else. for some people, these would be perfect. not for me though

pretty comfortable, decently sized cord worked for me

I cant help but say how terrible these made me feel, Instant headache from the sound of my own voice stuck in my head. The mic reach was pathetic, I couldn't go beyond 10 inches from my microphone without not being heard. they felt mildly heavy and...

Not for Windows 7 x64

 

I tried all the different USB ports I have (6 total) and all were the same. I even followed Microsoft's guide for fixing crackle and still found no difference. Again just very surprised and disappointed a 2010 product isn't x64 compatible.

Was surprised at quality of sound for the price I paid. Reasonably comfortable for a headset this price range too

Compatibility reads only as "Macintosh and Windows compatible USB Plug N Play". This is sadly not true. After doing some digging I have found that this headset is NOT compatible with Windows 7 x64. There is nearly constant crackling/static in the line....
