1.0 out of 5 stars Simply... terrible., 8 Oct. 2011
I've purchased several of these headsets, over the last few months... and, simply by reading that first sentence, you can probably guess that it's NOT a very good headset.

At first, it works like a charm, although the microphone quality isn't great, and the wire/cord is very cheaply made. However, after a month, or two, of somewhat heavy usage... the headset dies. Generally, it's the microphone that dies, and the headphones continue to work - for a short while, at least.

They never seem to last more than a couple of months, and, for a Philips product, I find that to be completely disgraceful. I've purchased £5 cheapo headsets that have lasted over a year, yet, a big company, like Philips, can't manage a headset that lasts more than 2, or POSSIBLY 3 months? Shameful.

Stay clear of this headset. Hopefully, if no one purchases it, Amazon will remove it from their stock, to save others from making the (sadly repeated) mistake of purchasing such a dud.

If I could rate it ZERO stars, I would.

Summary:

Sound: Average sound quality, from both the headphones, and the microphone.
Cord: Terrible. Twists near instantly, sometimes causing signal degradation.
Longevity: Lasts about two months. Cheaper headsets last much longer.
Comfort: Not even all that comfortable, and my ears are very small. I trust someone with average, or larger ears, would find it all the more uncomfortable. Even more so if they also had a large head.

Conclusion: Don't buy. It's a complete waste of money. 0/5 Stars.
