Price = Quality


I purchased this for $6 or $7 if I recall correctly. At that price, it was well worth it and hence the 3/5 rating. This review is very late but I would definitely recommend for anyone looking to get a budget headset. The non-usb form factor makes it a...

Worked ; Low Price ; Decent sound

Low quality ; Hurt ears after a bit ; Weak Mic ; Multi prong connection via mic in / audio out jacks

Comfortable for a cheap around the neck headset

Audio Quality of course isn't the greatest but its not horrible either

Works well


I'd buy it again. Great product for a great price.

Good price and works well

The mic piece is a little awkward. It's just not flexible. Trivial really

Worked good while it lasted

Volume control box broke so you can't adjust the volume and no microphone

Kinda Bad


Uhhh... Plantronics has horrible tech support.

Good mic sound

After owning these for a week, the left ear went out randomly ; The mic boom design is very bad, it's basically a mic on a non-adjustable pole through a hoop ; There's an annoying 2 inch wire going from the mic to the headset, unneeded and pretty...

Outstanding headset


How I wish all businesses were like New Egg... great products at a great price with an outstanding service... oh the dreams.

Paid less than 10 bucks for this headset and it's very durable, very comfortable. The sound is comparable to the 30 headphones I bought at another store. I occasionally even use it for listening to music at night, they're that good. Seriously if they...

Hmmmmmmmm....... it's not cream filled? No, no cons here

Love 'em


You can't beat these for the price. I was very impressed with the quality. I use these for work where I am on the phone for 13 hours straight VOIP. The sound quality is excellent on both ends. I like the volume adjustment and mute switch on the cord

It can get a little uncomfortable where it goes around my ears but not too bad. The sound quality makes up for it

Defective mic, but repairable


I bought 2 of these on sale about 9 months ago. The mic developed a loud buzz on both of them after about a week of gentle use. Someone at the factory doesn't know how to solder. If you're good with an iron, pry the black plastic screw cap from mic and...

Comfortable (if you know how to put it on properly), adjustable mic position, sounds good, long cable, volume control and mute

Mic lasts about 1 week. I'm surprised Newegg hasn't told Plantronics to get their act together or quit selling these. It was one of the few times I was disappointed with a Newegg purchase
