Plantronics M175 Mobile Headset

 

For ~$25 I was expecting an OK quality product with fairly cheap materials, and was pleasantly surprised to find just the opposite. The ear cushion (I guess that's what it is called) used in the headband mode is very comfortable and soft. My only...

Great Price, sounds very good, high quality

Not the most comfortable in the over-ther-ear mode

I bought this headset and the volume is horrible. It is way too low though my phones volume is maxed out and the thumb dial on the Plantronics cord is maxed out. I spoke with Plantronics and they said it is incompatible with my phone, ATT 982.

compact

Volume is horrible

I purchased this headset after searching for something that had muting capability and good sound quality (which many of the reviews I read said it did). I have not had anyone tell me they can't hear me (which I used to have with my old headset) so this...

muting capability, clear sound

I like the ability to use the headset or the ear piece. I also like the volume controls and the noise reduction.The price was good, and the continued use will tell if it will hold up

The ability to use ear or headset

none

Exceptional ear piece sound quality & all listeners report exceptional mic quality! Extremely comfortable & lightweight! Stays put. Volume adjust & mic adjust. Wired to the cordless phone, but it is the very best that I have ever owned.

Its a really good headset, I've been through a few. Good volumn control, and easy to throw on and off. Mute button always a plus.

Its a really good headset. Its one of the few I found that had good volumn control, and a mute button

Tends to slip off my head if I move around alot

This unit is great for conference calls where you need to be able to mute the microphone. Even when you don't use the mute, background noise pickup is minimal. A much better solution for hands free use when driving, although nobody uses their cellular...

Flexibility, sound quality, clear voice transmission, and noise suppression microphone

Tendency to hook the cord when you leave the phone attached to your belt while walking

Plantronics M175 Mobile Headset

 

Overall, this is the best headset I've tried or owned, and I've tried several. Most of them went back to the store, but I'll keep this one. Using the over-the-head comfiguration, this is by far the best unit for the price. Using the ear mount it's not...

Great sound quality, very comfortable using the head band, and stays on your ear using the ear clip

A little large and heavy

Plantronics M175 Mobile Headset

 

The headband is SO flexible and lightweight, yet keeps the unit in place well. The volume in-ear is fantastic. When my first m175 started making weird sounds, I thought I would save money and buy the m110, and hated it. The headband was very rigid and...

excellent in-ear volume and over-head comfort

first one started making weird noises after 1 yr. but loved it enough to buy another just now

I've used this for almost a year and have found it comfortable, very good sounding and does just what it advertises. Some of the better features: -It has a switch on the plug to adjust the mic to the phone which makes a big difference in how others...

Good sound, very comfortable, flexible

No hang-up/answer button, bulky

Product Specifications

The M175 sleek headset is ideal for use either in your car or with selected DECT phones. It is compatible with all headset-ready cellular, PCS or cordless phone, i.e., equipped with a jack for plugging a headset directly into the phone. For cellular and PCS phones that are not headset-ready, you will need a headset adapter with a built-in headset jack. The M175 incorporates the versatile headset that can be converted from headband to over-the-ear style and features an adjustable microphone boom and an advanced speaker technology that protects hearing. The Plantronics RF Noise Shield reduces annoying RF static noise. The microphone possesses an adjust switch for optimal voice output. The headset is compatible with telecoil-equipped hearing aids. It also has the special clothing clip for added stability on the move.
