Plantronics MX505 Mobile Earset

 

very nice headset for the price. it is very clear and loud, with a listening volume control and mute toggle built into the line. wind reduction works - with a fan blowing at me, people could not really tell and still hear me clearly (my old headset...

clear on both ends, wind reduction works

little weird to put on, especially in a hurry

This ear piece is great. It's clear and comfortable. Allows me to move all over the house with clear communications through my phone. Better than the built-in speaker phone too. Wow!

Good sound, comfortable, easy to use. Great value for the usefulness you'll get out of this handsfree ear piece

None that I observed

I've used this headset for a week now and it is great! Calls come though very clear and it is comfortable to wear.The only thing that I have a problem with is a slight delay in my voice while talking. It isn't bad but it is a little annoying.Overall I...

Slight delay while talking

I like it. The voices are clean on both sides. The headset stays in your ear even while shaking my head. The mute switch is Nice when you just need to vent at the person on the other end without getting Fired. I researched headsets for weeks and ended...

Light weight. The ear bud projects sound comfortablely into your ear. The Inline Volume & Mute control is VERY handy. Comfortable to wear for extended amounts of time

My girlfriend has small ears and this unit doesn't fit super, but it fits OK.. The inline volume & mute controls helps to compendsate for this headset's short comings

This headset works very well. It's comfortable enough for me that I have made the mistake, more than once, of forgetting I am wearing it and walking away from my desk while still wearing it.

Lightweight, very comfortable, clear

Only one weakness ... the rubber "behind the ear" piece is likely to eventually split. However it took my first one 3 years for that to happen. So, for me, it's not really a concern

I am hard of hearing in one ear and have shoulder problems so holding a phone when you can only hear voices in one ear is very hard and tiring. In addition I have had neck surgery so I can not just balance the phone on my shoulder, because it will make...

Voice quality, fairly comfortable for long wearing once you get use to it, volume adjustment, mute capability, choice of wind tube lengths, can still hear conversations around you

No call answer and disconnect on this model

Plantronics MX505 Mobile Earset

 

I purchased headsets for all of my staff in advance of the new California "hands free" driving legislation. The headsets that I purchased fit most of their cell phones, and represent a high quality product that is very reasonably priced. We are very...

Lightweight, good value, great quality, and easy to use

The headset was not appropriate for some of the older model mobile phones used by my staff

easy to use, good sound quality (especially the anti-wind technology). i bike a lot, and the people i talked to couldn't even tell that i was outside. works a lot better than the other headsets I've tried in the past. the microphone boom is a little...

GREAT anti-wind technology...sound quality is very good, much better than 2 other headsets i've tried in the past

looks a little dorky, especially the tan colored version (i thought i was getting the white/clear one)

Generally speaking a good headset. I sometimes have trouble hearing others at its maximum volume, but that is its only real weakness. Comfortable to wear and natural to talk on. Would definitely recommend to others, good value for the money.

I really wanted to like this headset, but eliminating wind noise is not worth the discomfort. Here's a summary of the major things I liked/disliked: Comfort: The earpiece that fits into your ear needs to be more round - its oval shape put too much...

Great sound (incoming), eliminates wind noise, volume control and mute button

Uncomfortable to wear for longer than 30 minutes, looks odd when worn, mute button difficult to use
