They were delivered within three days of ordering so no complaints there.
Sound quality is very good (at both ends, I'm told!) so no complaints there, either.
On the down side, compared to my existing, similarly priced, two-year old (but seemingly no longer available) USB Logitech set, design of this Plantronic headset is very basic and they are considerably less comfortable to wear due to a stiffer headband making them rather tight on the ears and (despite my pen name above!) I really don't have a big head! This is not helped by the ear pads being rather hard and flat and having no padded ear cushions. By contrast, and in addition, the sliding adjustment of the headband lacks stiffness and you may find yourself having to continually re-adjust them.
I did buy these with the intention of them becoming my primary set but whilst the added features of a volume control and dual connection are handy to have but not necessarily or continually vital for my purposes, the relative lack of comfort has let them down, especially when worn for an hour or more!
In fact, unlike my Logitechs, I certainly doubt that I could ever again get up and walk away from the computer having forgotten that I was still wearing a headset and, for that reason, despite this possibly favourable and subtle "safety feature", I'll be keeping the Plantronics as a secondary pair only!
This product work out of the box and is comfortable.
Only down side after 30 mins my ears become a bit warm.
So, if you want a headset for Skype etc then this is probably going to be great for you - the audio is certainly good enough for a human to listen to and understand. But if you want a headset for use with language courses where the software analyses your speech patterns, then you may want something more adjustable - I certainly do.
In terms of voice chat, the microphone is good at picking up even the slightest sound while still filtering background noise out.
My previous microphone used to cause lot of /hiss noise, but this seems to cut out out all. Very impressed so far.
The headphone is good enough for chat but its obviously not made for listing music/movies. There a huge difference when I switch to my HD202 SENNHEISER for music or movies.
Although USB and Input jacks gives a big advantage.
No cushion causes some distress on my head after keeping it on for hours.
I also felt some pain on my ears after few hours of gaming.
The most irritating problem I've found while using the input jacks via the USB is that the connection tends to cut-off and re-connect. While on Skype my microphone sensitivity goes down to an extent that my buddies can't hear me so end up loging on/off. :(
I think this is the major issue with using input jacks.
