Almost perfect all round!,
This review is from: Plantronics .Audio 995 Wireless USB (Personal Computers)
I'll start with my only two slight niggles - one is that as I bought this to use mainly with skype there is no way to answer a skype call on the headset itself. A pity this as I have two bluetooth headsets and both of them have this answer feature. This brings me to another issue i.e. the fact that this is NOT a bluetooth device is both an advantage and disadvantage depending on what you might be expecting to use it for. The advantage side is that it's range seems significantly greater than both of my bluetooth devices and I have been able to have clear uninterrupted conversations with the headset at least 50ft away from my desktop computer(where the dongle is). The downside is because it is not bluetooth it wont work with my bluetooth enabled mobile phone (not a problem for me because I already have bluetooth headsets for them anyway) not that the headset is exactly discreet for walking around the streets with anyway but I thought it worth mentioning.
Other reviewers have commented on the audio quality and I can confirm that it is surprisingly good for a wireless device - in fact I spoke to my nephew on skype only this morning and he is currently working and living in Manilla in the Philippines yet he could hear me loud and clear as if I was almost in the same room with him - when I told him I was using a WIRELESS headset he promptly ordered TWO of them right away (one for him and one for his dad's birthday). It is not the most compact nor discreet headset out there by a long chalk but for those who want or need to use their headsets for long periods of time it is certainly one of the most comfortable headsets I have used. Just wish they could have solved that skype answering issue otherwise considering the high quality and relative low price I would say this headset is just about perfect!

My dad has one of these headsets and it works 100%. Just bugged me that there was no way of answering calls on the headset. So I wrote a program to answer/pause when the play button is pressed and disconnects when the next track button is pressed. Search for skypeanswer one word in google (blogger) if you want to give it a go. This is highly experimental and has no guarantees as you would expect of freeware.
