“Lightweight, Quality Headset. Great For Vo-Ip Calls. ”
Exactly what I was looking for. I work in the home and make calls all day. My headset was a Logitech Stereo Headset H250 – Graphite (981-000353) which held up great for 2 years. I literally used this thing 5 days a week for 2 decades and had zero problems with it before recently.I found that I wanted a similar product that has the foam style earpads instead of leather ones. I came round the Plantronics headset and chose to take a chance.I absolutely love them. The are light, comfortable, and work perfectly. USB works really well (Logitech utilized A/V green/pink plugs).Call caliber over Google Voice has been perfect, certainly no issues whatsoever throughout my everyday use. Volume adjustment buttons on the cable are all fine, although I dont use the telephone answer button (for Skype). I also enjoy how these fold up easily and simply take up less room than my previous Logitech headset. Comfortable to wear all day long in my opinion. Highly suggested.

“Fabulous Sound For The Money And A Noise-Dampening Mic That Really Works”
A quick review of the Plantronics PLN AUDIO 478 Stereo USB Headset…I bought these for use in webinars and internet VOIP and video conferences after going through a number of unique configurations of additional Bluetooth and wired headphones and mics which never seemed to reduce it. In addition, because I use a mechanical keyboard, I was searching for good spot mic functionality so listeners were not blasted away by the sound of my typing.PROS+ On-ear, open layout nevertheless yields deep, rich sound that was so good, it verged on unexpected. Voices sound fantastic in such phones, especially given the cost. + Others noted how great my voice sounded in online meetings. + Others remarked that the sound of my typing was almost nonexistent, a first in most of the mic systems I’d tried. + Plug and play was just that. Inserted on a Windows 10 notebook, the headset self-identified, and Win 10 instantly switched to using the headset, that is precisely what you want to occur. No fuss, no muss. Only surgery. + Lightweight and effortless to wear, yet nevertheless stayed in place on your head.CONS- The earpads are REALLY flimsy, to the purpose of making me wonder whether theyll last two monthsâ$”and allegedly, replacements are not readily available. – Want to set up software (not provided) to utilize Skype functions. – Skimpiest directions I’ve ever seen for any sound product. – Made in China.MIXED* Though the unit does come with a travel pouch, it also is truly flimsy. * The fold-up capacity is much more of a hassle than a help, since it’s likely to spin and fold the wrong way, which might harm the unit.If you absolutely need the fold-up-ability, I figure its passable. * Just a one year warranty.As to Skype integration, I dont use Skype, so I cant speak for this or to the Skype controls. All I understand is that this headset functions greatSUMMARYThis headset solved all my audio and microphone difficulties that numerous other options did not. Additionally, I will wear it for hours and forget its there. Add from the fullness of range, quiet operation, and its added Skype performance, and its outstanding buy for the money.
