Fits comfortably; Good sound quality


Used for phoning in to meetings at work. Sound quality both ways was good. In line volume adjustment helpful. Comfortable to wear. It took me a couple tries to learn to put it on, but great after that.

Expensive and poor quality


I should have known better after the first one. Plantronics is a good company, I expect more. The second one failed within 30 days. I have yet to go through the warranty process. I'm debating if I want to. If I do, I receive the same poor quality.

Confortable headset


This is my Third one. Very confortable and easy to use but they don't last as long as I would like. Don't like ones that go over the ear or head.

Love, Love this device. Already wore one out. It is so comfortable in my ear and the extra controls help me to be able to hear even when the noise level around me is very loud.
