I use Skype for my work a lot so need the best kit. As a Mac Air user I need a USB headset as there is no mic jack. I first bought a Logitech headset but it turned out to have sound problems with latest Lion OS, so had to write that one off. The Platronics is fully Skype compliant and works perfectly with the highest quality digital sound I have experienced on Skype.

The button to stop or start a call is inactive on Mac and only works with Windows. This is minor but still annoying that it has not been solved by a driver update. So a Mac user is penalised, hence drop a star.

Apart from this, an excellent portable, foldable headset that is fully Skype functional, works through a USB hub when at my desk, and sound quality is best I have experienced.

A real improvement for Voice Recognition. Dragon Naturally speaking works well with this model.

Bought this for my daughter in law who used this product before in South Africa but it was sent to her from America. When she in was England she decided to get another one in case the one she has (for 2 years now) broke and wanted the exact one again because she like it so much. She works in an international call centre and the headphones are perfect for the job.

So far so good but I have had folding headphones before that broke. These are excellent for Skype and listening to music with good sound output.
Work on Ubuntu and Windows (not tried on MAC)

USB VOIP headphones sound quality is good, bought this product to ensure no distraction in the office , the only gripe is the foam on the ear pads is now disintegrating

After sending back 2 other similar priced Plantronics headsets (because the Mic stopped working) I decided to try this model instead. Initially found the mute button only reliably worked if pressed at the bottom with my nail. Decided to live with this, but then found the mic stopped working after a week. I sent them back again and am now using a different brand with no issues.
Had no problems with Amazon returning them and getting refund.
