Doesn't entirely work with win2k


Headset is a little tighter than I'd like. Seems to have the same ratchet sizing design as the DSP-500 (but the little ratchet tabs broke on the 500) (it's not a "con" yet, until/unless the tabs break on this too). The headset might be fine on more...

Nice "one wire" design. speakers are comfortable. Both the recording and playback seem to have a slightly wider acoustic range, than the DSP-500 I was trying to replace

Cord could be a foot (or two) longer (it _just_ reach me, when cord is routed behind desk) ; Doesn't seem to fully work with win2k (I know, I know... but it's what I've got to work with...) Seems to play for about 55 seconds, then get progressively...

Plantronics is still the best


I needed a headset for a work at home job. My experiences with most "gaming" headsets was that they were a little inconsistent with the noise canceling aspect. This headset from Plantronics worked like a champ.

Good solid construction ; It really does cancel noise ; Relatively comfortable

It doesn't make any waffles
