Nice Headset but awful cheap ear pad
on 9 June 2014
It is very difficult to choose which Plantronics headset to buy. There are hundreds of types. Their website is next to useful and the product information on the listings on Amazon and other retailers is atrocious. You just have to guess and hope. So this one arrived and it seems to work fine. It's lightweight and is loud and clear. No one is complaining about sound quality from oth1er end.
But it is fitted with a horrible foam ear pad which gets very sweaty. Plantronics do make the leatherette ear pads for this headset as an optional extra. But they are not available from any retailer in UK as far as I can determine! I tried ordering at Plantronics.com but they won't ship outside USA. Eventually I found the part on Ebay. There are various different sizes so you have to be careful. 55mm fits this headset.Cost an extra £4.50. What a hassle!
Note: when buying Plantronics headsets you need to also buy the right cable attachment and amplifier (optional) to be able to plug it in to your phone.
Go on.... it's an adventure!
