- I've had this headset for almost a year now, and at first I thought that it was a good one just to start with because of its cheaper price range. I got it so I wouldn't have wasted much money if I didn't end up liking my new job that required its use. I teach online classes and this headset is great! Totally compatible with Adobe Classroom, which I use with Google Chrome. I've never had any tech issues on my end with it, that's for sure. The sound cancellation isn't the best, but the headphones are cushiony enough that I have no problem wearing them for loooong stretches of time on my busy teaching days (yes, sometimes for about 8 hours total in a day). They don't make the arms of my glasses dig into the sensitive skin behind my ears, which was one of my biggest concerns initially. The cord is nice and long, so if I have to go get a new pen or something, I can discretely do it without taking my computer down accidentally. The mute button is my lifesaver! Students just think I have a really quiet house because they can't see it's muted through the classroom controls. The button is the only thing that has worn down over the past year, but it's still fully functional. I just have to make sure I feel a little click when I push it and check to make sure the little indicator light is blinking so I know it really is muted before I go ahead and bite into a crunchy snack or take a loud slurp of coffee =P.

- I got these headphones for my mother because she has ESL courses that she takes online that require these headphones. My mom is tiny (5") so I was curious if these were going to fit her little head and they did (they even fit my dad and he's a big guy 6'2") and they did not bother her ears (she has sensitive skin). The fabric wasn't rough and the microphones was at a comfortable distance from the mouth for someone to still drink water from a water bottle. The installation was straightforward and not time consuming at all. My mom was happy with them so I'm giving them a 5 star.

This headset is pretty good... for the first couple months. It's lightweight, has decent sound, and decent audio, but after awhile, after barely moderate usage, it begins to fall apart, basically. The first time I bought this, I loved it, it was great, but after about 6 months, the wires near the volume button began to screw up, so the audio could only be heard out of one ear; two ears if you moved the wires into a specific formation. So, I bought another one because I thought the first one was just a fluke, and sure enough, not even 6 months later, the wires began to mess up again, this time, near the base of ear, where the wire connects to it, leading to the exact same problem. BUT I still didn't learn my lesson and bought another one. Same thing basically happened. Really disappointed as this is a decent headset, but it's just so poorly made.
-Bought this headset 3 times
-Same problem every time, audio gets messed up because of crappy wiring
-Cheaply made, but decent for a few months
-Buy if you feel like blowing $20 for 6 months of a decent headset

- You have to love Logitech products - you just plug them in and they work. I'm using it on a laptop provided by a client for a project, with separate jacks for microphone and speaker. Rather than dink around with two devices, I got this. I use Skype to dial in to conference calls, as well as person to person calls, and this works perfectly. The mute and volume control appears durable and the cable and USB connector are substantial. The cable is a bit longer than I wanted, but I just use a Nite Ize gear tie to keep a few loops in a knotless sheepshank. If you have a dedicated Skype phone number, be sure to configure the ring to come through the speakers, rather than the headset.

- Honestly, I was going to give this 5 stars before today, but then the microphone stopped working! There doesn't appear to be any damage to it at all, but people can't hear me all of a sudden when I'm using it even though I can hear them. I'm very disappointed because before that this had been a total game-changer for me, especially since it was reasonably priced and lightweight. I haven't even had it for more than a couple months or so. :( Guess I'll have to buy a new one from a more expensive brand that had more positive reviews. I was looking forward to giving this one a boost for being so great until this happened, unfortunately.

I wear these for the entire workday. I keep one at home and one at work. I get a lot of use out of them.
I listen to music all day and make a few conference calls from my laptop every day.
My music is not very dynamic but more to drown out the office noise. These work very well in that context.
A co-worker said that he disliked the sound quality. I kinda like them.
The mic is very good.
Maybe it is the fact it has a boom, or maybe it is this headset in particular, but I seem to get a compliment every 6 months or so.
They tend to last about a year. One pair probably lasted 6 months, but my current pairs have lasted over 2 years.
I do seem to go through headsets - earbuds last for under a year and the over the ear (e.g.: Sony MDRZX100) last about a year and a half. So I keep a backup or two for most of my pairs for when they break.
I'm probably on my 3rd set of this exact model. I had 2 discontinued models before that.
I'm using earbuds a bit more now, so that is possibly why these have lasted for so long.
Wish they used a regular wire rather than USB. I really like the headsets with a single sound/mic jack option.
The USB does buy you sound +/- and mute, which I never use. Another pair has them on the right ear. It was very convenient.
Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase.
They last a year (which seems the norm now a days) and they are very inexpensive.
