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.

Best headset for cordless phones


After going through a few headsets for my home phone, I finally called Plantronics and asked them what they recommended for a cordless home phone and this was the one. I was glad Dell had it in stock and so far, they also have the best price! Very...

Excellent headset


This headset has all the features I need to conduct business. I am a budding small business owner in the voice industry, so it's important for me to come through clear and crisp on the phone, and listen to speakers with no static or other...

clear crisp quality, no headband marks after long usage

High Quality and Easy to Put On


I have a several-hours-long drive twice a week on curvy roads, and wear glasses and a cap. I tried several headsets that were difficult to hear through, and almost impossible to doff and don while driving. I bought this headset and it was perfect....

Great sound, questionable quality


Great sound and fit, but breaks on it own accord. Purchased the headset in Apr 2012. Warranty replaced in Oct 2012 and again in Jan 2013. Hard plastic from ear piece cracked at the seam, same place, same symptom both times. Used daily from home office....

Best I've Found


I've used many headsets over the years and this one is the best. I've used this one so much that I've worn some out but not because of poor quality. The only downside is the cord but that's part of why the clarity is so good. It is designed for many...
