These wireless headphones have good range and decent sound quality

 

If you value mobility over sound quality, the Plantronics .Audio 995 wireless headset is a great option. We never experienced audio break-up, and the decent sound quality and good microphone made voice communication a breeze.

Good microphone, comfortable for on-ear headphones, good range and battery life

No 3.5mm connection option, inferior sound to wired headphones

Plantronics .Audio 995 Wireless Headset

 

Plantronics applies its Bluetooth headset experience to a wireless PC headset.

Before you can use the set it must be charged. This is performed through USB with a provided cable, but unlike Creative's effort you can't use the headset when plugged in. This is a fairly significant oversight in our minds, since there will always be...

No Listen and Charge, Not Circumaural

 

So far, I am content; however, I've only had them for about half a month. Participants in video chats (like Google Hangouts) don't complain about the quality, and I hear them usually just fine.

Light. Easy to use

No 'listen and charge' ability. Discovered while at work with a nearly-dead headset - plugged in after a sync, and audio (in and out) dropped and disconnected from USB transceiver ; I have a big-ish noggin, and the headset is not circumaural. I get a...

Best wireless headset for the price
