Plantronics CS50 900 MHz Wireless Office Headset System review: Plantronics CS50 900 MHz Wireless Office Headset System

 

Comfortable; great range; solid sound quality.

Expensive; confusing adjustments; flimsy earpiece attachment.

This cordless headset has amazing range and strong sound quality, but its price makes it a luxury rather than a justifiable accessory.

Plantronics CS50

 

With the money you're saving using 3-cent-a-minute long-distance service, invest in a decent cordless headset for your wired phones. The Plantronics CS50's 1-ounce headset clips over your ear and links directly to a 900-MHz base station placed next to...

Plantronics CS50-USB VoIP Wireless Headset

 

I can walk around anywhere in my home wearing my headset, and can hear everything just as clearly as if I was sitting in front of my computer, even through three solid walls. It can also transmit through the walls without any problems. It's the most...

The Plantronics CS50-USB VoIP Wireless Headset (MPN: CS50USB) the most fantastic headset that I've ever owned. I can walk anywhere around in my home, and I can hear everything.

The only problem that I can find is that the volume control knob is too small. A little difficult to adjust on account of the small size.

Plantronics CS50-USB VoIP Wireless Headset

 

Do not buy this product if you plan to use for SKYPE, MS Messenger, Yahoo Voice. IT DOES NOT work properly. I will not buy this product again, it also IT IS NOT bluetooth it works in 900mhz range like any wireless phone.

It gooes far, very nice looking, headsets are perfect fit on the ears

Tech support call center does not know about their own product too well, it seems this product is too NEW for the guys a Plantronics call center, product sound is too weak I can't hear,

Plantronics CS50-USB VoIP Wireless Headset

 

Awsome headset.. hands down. I use it for listening to streaming radio, Ventrillo (internet voice chat). The ear piece takes some getting used to if you want to wear it for an extended period of time.

The range on this wireless headset is unreal.. literally 300feet.. walls are no object. The sound is great. I've partially lost hearing and this headset is more then loud enough.

A little pricey

Plantronics CS50-USB VoIP Wireless Headset

 

I use this specifically for my IBM ViaVoice speech recognition software and can move about the office because it is wireless and it has a rechargeable station. Be careful because Plantronics also makes a CS 50 model that is only usable with the...

Allows you to dictate for speech recognition-IBM ViaVoice and be free of wires that otherwise would have to be connected to your computer. Easy to set up and use.

Good but the battery is not very good

 

Very convenient, easy to use

The battery cannot last too long. I replace the battery after 7 months. And price is a little high
