As you would expect from a Sennheiser product, these headphones do their job very well. They were brought specifically for use with Skype for business, to replace an older headset that my fellow Skype users had started to complain about introducing noise into group calls. Switching to the Senheiser headset, there was an immediate and obvious improvement in the clarity of my speech judging by spontaneous comments I received. The headphones also have good audio and are certainly good enough for listening to streamed music. They are also comfy over prolonged periods of use. Recommended.

Bought as a replacement for my Logitech headset for gaming chat, had the previous hardware for several years and they finally got broken so needed a decent replacement. I already have a full 5.1 setup so wanted a headphone set that would complement the setup and still allow me to appreciate the in game sound while speaking with friends. This works great so far, unlike my closed cup Logitech the open backs of these allow more game sound to my ears while still proving clear voice communication. These are also nice and light, and unlike the former they don't seem to pinch my glasses against my ears leaving them sore after extended periods of use. Packaging was also great, there's certainly no way you'd get them out of the package without obliterating the packaging, so full confidence they're new and unopened. Finally plug and play on Windows 8 worked great, simply plugged them in and several seconds later all worked straight out of the box.

Very good headset for Webinars. I prefer that it has a USB rather than audio jacks and the Mac I use recognises the device without any problems.
I also brought a cheaper pair of headphones with audio jacks from a different manufacturer but the mic didn't work so they went back and I have ordered a second one one of these. You get what you pay for!

I ordered this headset to record decent quality audio for multi-media training. As soon as I plugged it in to my Windows 7 laptop, it worked almost immediately, overriding the laptop's built-in mic and speakers. In my opinion, the quality is far superior to that offered by cheaper headsets and therefore represents a sound investment!

I have other Sennheiser kit and it's fine, and that partly informed my decision to go for these, but this headset is poorly designed. This is just my experience - others seem to be happy - but four things annoy me...
1. The microphone boom only swings through 180 degrees in the vertical, so it always has to be on your left. You can't rotate it to the "back" so you can wear it with the boom on the other side. Not necessarily an issue for some/most people, but not well thought out and inconvenient for some. Also, the boom ONLY moves in the vertical, so you are limited in microphone placement, thus affecting sound quality. My landline headset's boom moves through almost 360 degrees, it moves a little horizontally (so you can place it nearer or further away from your mouth... good for sound quality and drinking!), and you can even push and pull the microphone in and out a little, so you can get the right balance between volume and clarity. Not so with these.
2. The ear pads/cushions fit into a groove that runs across the cutout where the cables are attached, so don't be surprised if the ear pads fall out. Mine have.
3. The mute and volume buttons are low on the main cable (60cm below the speakers) so can be a pain to locate quickly... controls on the main headset would have been more ergonomic.
4. The cables run off both the left and right hand side (and then join at about 30cm) rather than being integrated in the headset, so you only have a single cable from one side. Not major but it adds to the tangle.

Speaker quality is OK, but limited movement of the boom may affect microphone sound quality. All in all, disappointed.

Brought originally for use with voice active programs, but use it more for watching catch-up TV while my better half is soaking up the soaps. Overall they have been very good, the only critisism is that background sound is hardly muffled at all. That aside I have been very pleased with my purchase and would recomend these headphones for anyone wanting a basic headset. especially for use with 'Dragon Naturally Speaking'.

I was introduced to this product while working for a global telecommunications company. We used it for all internal VOIP telephone conferences. I suspected the quality was mostly down to our back-end, but bought a set for home use with Skype. I am pleased to say that the quality is outstanding and people comment on the clarity of my voice, even when they are using a desktop mic & speaker set up. The received audio quality is excellent.

The short story is, with a decent internet connection, the quality is between 3G & toll quality voice. I can't give an exact MOS/MOPS score but it would be high.

If you use Skype regularly, this product is a no-brainer. Skype becomes a high performing tool and you will no longer resort to picking up your cell or a land-line because of poor quality. The weakest link may be people you are talking to's set up, but many of my contacts have now gone out and bought one of these headsets.
