    Absolutely superb headset microphones

    I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending these headset microphones to anyone. However, I would certainly recommend them for people who are disabled and need a pair of headset microphones that they can put on easily, unlike the PC 131 microphone headset so I purchased recently.

    PRO:

    These are comfortable and easy to get on from the perspective of a disabled person with hand and finger paralysis. You simply plug them in and they work straightaway. For a small pair of headphones the quality of the audio coming through is very good.

    CON:

    I suppose the only gripe I have is that the sponges could last a bit longer. I suppose you can buy some more online

    BEST USES:

    I use mine with Dragon NaturallySpeaking and they work really well

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    USB driver or unitsoftware buggy

    unit works good IF it works. weirdly enough after some time no sound from the speakers anymore although windows "thinks" it's plugged in. At another USB port it then works. until..... right, you have to change to yet another port. This obviously is no hardware failure.

    PRO:

    Quality Of Sound, Wear Comfort

    CON:

    Driver Unit Software

    BEST USES:

    Making Skype Calls

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would not recommend this to a friend.

    Remember to tweak audio settings

    The plug and play is a bit deceiving. I plugged it into my mac USB and the audio didn't play in the headphones. After about ten minutes of Googling, reverted back to system preferences and clicked on the output and input controls, selecting the headset. Mac already recognized the headphones, making this simple, but it made for a few head scratching moments of wondering my my headphones weren't literally "plug and play" so laptop users, follow this and you should be off and running.

    PRO:

    Light Weight Comfortable

    CON:

    Audio Settings

    BEST USES:

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
