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...

Offers great hands free capability with the full 300ft of range. Other Plantronics headsets don't live up to the full claimed range.

The range of 300ft is useful. Wireless capability is a step up from using a wired headset. This is life changing

No noise canceling, the ear loop option droops off the ear

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.

I'm returning this in the morning. I followed the directions yet the sound quality is awful still. Echo's a lot to. Not worth the cost. Buyer beware.

There are none

Awful sounding no matter how much you try to tweak it. Not worth the

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,

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

Easy to use, easy to setup. Too much wire for my location but hasn't let me down. All the comfort and ease I expected

Sounds nice, holds charge for days

Costly, wires are long for my use

AFter 12 years of corded headsets, I decided I need to get up and move around. Tech has come a long way over the past 12 years and the headsets I used before locked me into my phones. I am self employed and I work over the phone 95% of the time so I am...

Lightweight, convenient and great reception

Echo, earpieces are not comfortable

We have 5 sets of CS-50, at first it was good with Skype 1, but soon after Skype has moved on to Ver 2 the CS-50 begins to deteriorate. Well Skype 2 was out beginning of this year(2006)? The CS-50 has never worked correctly since.

Sound Quality is good, range is good

Poor product support, and much over priced than other good Voip Boxes
