Nice wirefree headset
Posted by: asdagade from: Goleta, CA on
I am really happy to get this headset. Most importantly, it makes me free of those wires and allows me to move around a little while I am talking using VoIP.
I am talking in meeting for more than 3 hrs everyday, and this headset is really comfortable on ear. The sound quality is pretty good for music. It's talk time is also very good, and the best thing is I can use it while it's getting charged via PC USB cable.
The only problem is it's range... it's no where near 30ft as mentioned by Logitech. Moreover, it doesn't work behind walls; it needs clear line of sight between headset and the USB dongle.
Also, the price could have been little less... fourty bugs looks ok.
Overall, it is working for me; using it for 4 months and I am happy to have this.

Goodbye tangled cord

Works just as advertised. Stores compactly. Good transceiver range, do not have to be right adjacent to computer to use.

Not ready for prime time
Posted by: Hossyman from: Ohio on
The concept of the headset is great, the implementation and practical use is just not there. After charging the headset battery for 3 hours, I started the setup. The Nano USB used on this headset unreliable and is sporatic at best. The instructions say not to plug it into a USB hub. I tried putting the USB in the front USB slots and in the rear, and nothing. I plugged it into my USB hub, and it took about 5 minutes for the computer to find it and install the drivers. The range says 30 feet, I was 3 feet away and got a crackeling broken up sound. I shut the computer dowm restarted it, and it never found the headsets again, in any slot ,anywhere, at least in the 10 minutes I gave gave them to find each other . Needless to say, I took them back. And no, it was not my computer. I have an i7 with 10gb ram etc etc etc.

Excellent Wireless For The Price
Posted by: Tigran from: on
I love wireless headsets, but until I stumbled across this set, the cheapest I could find was a behind-the-neck Logitech which broke less than a week after I bought it. Granted, I have a larger head than most people...
I found this pair on sale in my local Best Buy after my roommate's old headset stopped working from a broken wire in the cord. For the price, I just couldn't pass this up. I was a little worried about using two of these in the same room because of interference issues, but it turned out I had nothing to fear. To be sure, I powered one set on and plugged its receiver in. Once the two had linked up, I turned the other headset on and plugged its receiver in to my roommate's computer.
This headset is very comfortable to wear. I have a large head and have to extend the headband nearly as far as it can go, but the headset doesn't squeeze my head like most do. My roommate feels like they're squeezing her head, but not bad enough that she can't wear them for hours at a stretch. The microphone is on the right side. It looks very small inside the box when it's pointing up. It rotates from the bottom of the earphone so it will be a proper length when you use it.
The headset has volume controls, a power switch, and a microphone mute on the headset itself. Unfortunately, there is no push-to-talk button like many of us gamers would love to see for when we get up to make a sandwich and someone asks us a question.
The charging cable is, I think, micro-USB. It's the same charging cable that my Logitech wireless mouse and my Android cell phone use.
The 33 foot range only applies to direct line of sight, and even then it's pushing it. I have thick walls in my apartment with lots of electrical wiring run through them. Don't expect these to work if there are two or more walls between you and the receiver.
Sometimes it will just randomly drop connection. When this happens, powering the headset off and back on sometimes fixes it. Somestimes we have to unplug the transmitter for a moment and plug it back in to fix it. This happens rarely enough that it's a minor inconvenience for me and not a deal-breaker. Make sure you enable the bass boost in the properties for the wireless headset in Windows.
I am very happy with this headset. The sound quality and convenience are wonderful and outweigh the minor complaints. For the price, you get a great wireless headset. No cords to trip over, and no cord jerking you back when you forget to take them off when you get up. I would recommend these to all of my friends.

Great performance (once you get it setup)
Posted by: WilMar from: Horsham on
Comfortable, great sound quality, microphone works well! Only issue was in setup… My wife uses a Mac and has the same set, not sure if the transceivers were conflicting but it took the better part of 3 hours to get them working properly.

I wouldn't recommend
Posted by: 1Blaze from: Atlanta on
Biggest problem I have with these is the range, which is all important to me. They start to break up at about 12-13 feet away. The sound is ok and they're comfortable, but the range is terrible. They shouldn't sell these for more than $25. Right now they're $49 (Feb 20, 2012).

A headset my daughter isn't destroying!
Posted by: TSinTally from: Tallahassee, FL on
So... my daughter goes through headsets. As in, in the past, they've generally only lasted her a few days to a few weeks. Her mom has given her several of her old ones, I gave her a few of my old ones, and I'd bought a couple for her.
This last time that she told me her headset wasn't working, I decided that this time, instead of buying another cheapie, I'd try to get something higher quality... and I decided to go wireless, since I suspected that her destroying headsets had a lot to do with carrying around her laptop, using it in bed, etc, and that most likely, the wire was getting bent enough where it went into the plug to eventually short out or break.
So I got this one. It was more expensive than I was originally looking to spend, but it seemed to be of high quality, and it was wireless, with a USB dongle, which was important since her laptop doesn't have bluetooth.
So far, she's had it about a month and a half, has been using it constantly, and it hasn't broken yet. She loves it, and I'm happy!

Very short wireless range, unremarkable otherwise
Posted by: Hermitcrabkingofbeasts from: Phoenix, AZ on
Really the only thing I have to say about this headset is that the wireless range is atrocious, which I suspect is because of the incredibly tiny receiver. Sitting at my computer it would usually be okay but if I got even 1 step further away from my desk (or even leaned back in my chair) the audio quality would dip dramatically: static or dead air when it loses the connection, and then sped-up audio for a second when it resumes the connection.
I had been looking for a replacement headset to use with my PC for skype calls and listening to music and such and had enjoyed the freedom of being able to get up and walk around with my previous headset. This headset failed in living up to that specific task. If you don't need to be able to get up and walk any distance away from your computer or laptop, or you just want to leave it plugged in all the time, it's an adequate headset, but nothing special.
As for the value for its price, I think I would be just as satisfied with the performance of a wired headset that's half the price of this one considering that the wirelessness of this one hardly matters.
My total time using this model was only a couple weeks before I couldn't put up with it any longer and I've already exchanged it for a different brand.

Good...just good. Not great.
Posted by: Dashboard0215 from: Sterling, VA on
The ear muffs are very warm when you leave them on too long. It's actually quite uncomfortable. The battery life stinks. If you forget to charge it one day, and use it for one phone call, it's horrible.
However, that said, I CAN put it on, walk from my desk to the office kitchen, refresh my coffee, and walk back without dropping a call. GREAT feature for long, boring conference calls or webinars.
