Top positive review
excellent for skype/voip
on 11 August 2013
I have been using a set of these for about 4 years now - I notice that they are now discontinued by Logitech, so I have just ordered one more set while they are still available.
I do not use them for listening to music - I don't know if they are particularly suited or not, but for music I already use Bose noise-cancelling headphones. I would not expect standard headphone sets to compete with those.
I use this Logitech headset for skype and similar chat. I travel a lot with my work, and visit many countries. I carry a set of these in a soft leather pouch (that is left from an old set of Sony headphones), in my computer bag. I use Skype for international calls back to UK phones, and this headset has proved ideal.
I agree with some other reviewers in that for me the volume control and microphone mute is redundant and unnecessary.
My laptop has microphone and headphone sockets at the front, so I particularly want a headset that did not use a USB connection - my USB ports are usually in use for my mouse and external hard drives.
According to the people that I all and speak to, the sound from the microphone is excellent and clear.
Mine has led quite a rough life, but I have no problem with cables or intermittent operation. The only wear and tear I see is that the foam ear-protectors are starting to split, and I cannot yet find suitable sized replacements
I am very happy with the useability and longevity of these .
