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...

Plantronics Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset Review

 

1 Flares 1 Flares × A little while ago we took at two Xbox 360 headsets from Plantronics and were very impressed with what they offered for the money. We did however comment that the Wireless X95 headset would be a much better product if it featured an...

Plantronics Audio 995 Digital Wireless Stereo Headset Review

 

Good battery life and quick charge time, Natural feeling bass with the right amount of punch, Very comfortable and gives good wireless freedom, Very quick and easy to set-up – it just works!, Quite a light headset

Not the best fitting around the ears., Very occasional electronic distortion, Range isn’t quite ‘around the house

Final Thoughts I really like this device, the wireless communication just works. You plug it in and turn the headset on and instantly have sound. This is also the same for the microphone and it just simplifies things drastically. The headset also turns...

PLANTRONICS .Audio 995

 

I bought these to replace a wired gaming headset to use at work (because I broke those at the volume switch in the middle of the cord). Apparently, wired or wireless, I'mma break something. Since these are my work ones, I'm going to have to either put...

The audio is decent enough for office usage (music, video conferencing via Google Hangouts, et cetera) ; The wireless range is, for my experience, impressive. I can walk about halfway across the office and still receive signals (music). After coming...

The right hand side, just a the first inside indentation "setting" cracked today. I left the music playing, but took it off my head gingerly ; I've owned it for just under 4 months (bought in late September), so the length is disappointing too

Does not work with Windows 7

 

Product refuses to work with windows 7 on two separate machines. When I contacted tech support, they blamed windows, then the motherboard. Neither of which was the issue they stated. After the 2nd excuse I hung up on them and returning the product....

Fantastic

 

quick charge, the noise cancellation is great for the price and great sound quality for the price

get what you pay for

Consumer review by:

Good product

 

Good sound quality, good range I've tested about 15-20ft, good mic quality, comfortable to wear

Price - Honestly I feel like it should have a mic button, but it only has buttons for music play like play/stop/vol up and down. When battery is low or turning off, it gives you no audio queue
