I have reinstalled this so many times and it does nothing

Consumer review by:

Works and has excellent quality

 

I use these for hours nearly every day. The only issues have already been mentioned by other reviewers. 1) can't replace batteries. 2) can use while charging.

Durable Headset for the price

 

I worked at a call center for nearly 3 years, and owned 2 of these headsets for 2.25 years of that service. They have survived 10 hour days if charged during the lunch break, otherwise you're pushing it. Thought the battery quit in one headset after 2...

Under $100 ; Huge Drivers ; Great quality, mic and drivers ; Wireless, good in most envirionments to about 25 feet, 40 is a lucky number ; Durable for what it is ; Great Battery life. Will survive a 10 hour shift at a call center if charged for 30...

Dongle easily damaged if you aren't careful. NOT FOR USE IN LAPTOPS THAT ARE USED IN YOUR LAP ; Cannot charge while in use ; Heavy, Will get used to weight after 6-8 months

It works for me and my wife is more than half deaf

 

I looked all over for a device like this seprate from sell phone bluetooth that would allow my wife and I (I am a permanently bed-ridden Army Veteran) to speak to each other throughout the house without raising our voices. This is a great blessing to...

PLANTRONICS .Audio 995

 

I've only had the headset for about a week, but I'm very satisfied. I've found the charge lasts longer than the promised 8 hours of continual use (I've used it 9-10 hours several times).

Comfortable, long life, convenient and easy to use

Can't use while plugged in. The instructions that come with headset say that you cannot use the headset while it's charging. I couldn't test this though as the charging cord it comes with is about a foot long...so I unless I want to make out with my...

Don't Buy This One

 

I agree with the other comments that this item is just plain odd shaped and the weight is unbalanced. I disagree with comments such as "don't be lazy, recharge it". Be real.

Fairly comfortable, I can wear it for several hours. I have a slightly big head (just ask my wife) ; Sound quality is above average. The mic is clear and so is the sound. Nothing earth shattering but it's a decent clear sound ; I do get good range out...

WORST THING is the battery issue. There are many wireless gaming headsets that allow you to operate while charging the battery, which is why I say DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL. Go for something that can operate while charging. When the battery goes dead...

Pretty Decent

 

I would recommend them more for personal use and not professional use. I do like them though.

Good build quality and very clear sound quality both ways. People hear me great and I hear them great

I bought these for work since I use a virtual IP phone for my laptop. I figured they would last 9 hours since I maybe talk for an hour or two total on the phone in a day. However, 8 hours is 8 hours regardless if you're using them or not. They do not...
