Reviews around sound (4.55 of 5)

  • The sound is crystal clear, fit is perfect (For me at least), noise cancelling is excellent and personally I will never own another headset but a Plantroncis
  • I really like this headset as it offers binaural sound and is lightweight and the microphone is noise cancelling.
  • Great quality sound, people can hear me fine, as I can hear them, and ear pads soft on the ears.
  • I like sound in both ears and no pinching or squeezing.
  • Nice headset, clear sound and helps drown out background noise

Reviews around plantronics (4.16 of 5)

  • These work as they are supposed to in my situation, no amplifier needed
  • Don't forget to order the proper Plantronics adapter, in my case I needed "Replacement Quick Disconnect Coil Cable For M-12
  • Thank you Plantronics for wonderful shipping and quality products.
  • I called Plantronics and asked for their recommendation and they recommended either this model or the single earpiece
  • Let's begin by noting which models are monaural vs. binaural:SupraPlus HW251N - Monaural (1 earmuff), microphone noise reducingSupraPlus HW261N - Binaural (2 earmuff), microphone noise reducingEncorePro HW291N - Monaural (1 earmuff), microphone noise reducingEncorePro HW301N - Binaural (2 earmuff), microphone noise reducingThe W in the model names stands for WIDEBAND AUDIO for which Plantronics claims improvement in sound clarity, etc

Reviews around set (4.03 of 5)

  • My company has a lot of these and they work well, but the latest set I ordered don't work well with my Polycom IP550 phones, and even with the right cord (that's important too.)
  • This was supposed to be a special purchase, an upgrade from my work set, but other than the fact the cord is not twisted it actually seems to be less comfortable and the sound quality is not as good as the old set which was the same brand ( just the older version).
  • The set is comfortable however the foam ear pads become a little warm after wearing the headset for a while.
  • I tried two different adapter cords (at an extra cost of $33), tried working with Plantronics (they sent me a new set in case mine was defective) and the problem wasn't resolved
  • The binaural set is much better than then the Jabra one piece I have been using in the past

Reviews around job (3.86 of 5)

  • $60.00 didn't come cheap, as I mentioned, I do customer service, not the greatest paying job.
  • The headset does a great job of filtering out outside noises too.
  • It does a good job of projecting the voice yet not transmitting noise.
  • The headset does a great job of filtering out outside noises too.
  • I can do my job so much better and love the fact I can flip out the earpiece when I need to pick up the phone

  • Ordered as a replacement to existing Plantronics and the sound quality is great
  • The sound quality on this headset is very clear and it's easier to hear the caller using the headset.
  • Horrible sound quality and echo when attached to our cordless phone.
  • That said, these two headphones are considered to have the BEST SOUND QUALITY OF THE PLANTRONICS
  • I've never experienced any tin can sounds or crackling and have not had anyone tell me that the sound quality is bad, either

Reviews around wire (3.61 of 5)

  • After playing with it I discovered there is a loose wire some where in the headset.
  • support).- Wired is always better sound quality than wireless all else being the same, however as time marches forward folks have a tougher time telling the qualitative difference between top quality wired and wireless
  • Any suggestions, please?If anyone knows of a good wired binaural headset, in over the head design, which would work well out doors, in mild wind, please write in the comments.
  • I prefer wired

Reviews around neck (1.00 of 5)

  • I can type about 20 times faster than I can write, so I needed my hands free and was tired of having a stiff neck from pinching the handset between my shoulder and ear.
  • I now do my tasks while talking on the phone with full freedom of movement and no more neck kinks/cramps or damaging my phone
  • I used to crank my neck while talking on the phone or else hold with either hand, which would lead to dropping the phone in water or on floor, neck kinks and/or cramps, and arms falling asleep
