I purchased my first C65 from Amazon approximately 3 - 4 years ago. Recently I broke it, my fault so I ordered another which arrived last week. I work from home and my job involves being on the phone about 6 hours a day so its had heavy usage. In use, the headset is light and comfortable, sound quality is excellent and the batteries with well over 3 years of heavy usage never needed replacing. Do not be put off by the fact you have to switch from handset to headset, you have to dial out on phone and stay on handset if are having to select options like press 1 or 2 to get through to different departments....then you can switch very easily to headset by pressing the answer button on the headset before you switch off the phone. With incoming calls you can answer the phone with the headset.
The C65 headset comes with a uniband as well the earpiece you see in the picture. I personally prefer the uniband, very comfortable and you hardly know you are wearing it.
Before I replaced my broken C65, I researched all the latest Plantronics models and decided to stick with the C65. I live in a Victorian house, really solid thick walls and with my previous one if I went into another room I would get the warning beebs. Was never a real problem for me as I have home office which I work from. When you are out of range of the base station you get a beeping noise and for the person on the other end of the call, they just hear your voice cut out when the beep happens. However, with this one when I go into any room of my home I do not get the beep to alert me I'm out of range which is fantastic. Its the same model as before, why this one works through thick walls and the previous one didn't I will probably never know. Therefore I'm really pleased I stayed with the C65. Registering with your phone is very easy to do. Delivery was within the stated estimated delivery time.
My current phone is Panasonic KX-TG6522EB DECT Twin Digital Cordless Phone Set with Answer Machine.
