Extremely good value for money - definitely recommended for gamers that doesn't want to break the bank, or people that prefers clarity when listening to music. Using it on Skype to make calls, or any VoIP facility for gaming couldn't be easier...nothing to configure - works straight out of the box (plug & play).
The only drawback on this set is for people that wear glasses - every time you reposition the headset, you have to reposition your glasses as well (otherwise it has a tendency to put some uncomfortable pressure on the tips of your ears).
Other than that - sound is amazing and crystal clear, and despite the one slight flaw mentioned above (that only applies if you wear glasses), this set is virtually perfect!
I highly recommend it to anybody that is looking for amazing sound at a very reasonable price.

Good value for money headphones, bought 25 for the office, everyone is happy. One guy did say he feels they are uncomfortable, and one headset did break shortly after purchase though - otherwise no complaints.
All in all I think they are a good buy, the quality for VOIP is great, for music they are pretty good - although they do leak a lot of sound so your neighbour at the next desk will hear your music if it's loud.
A small bonus is that if you lift the microphone up during a VOIP call it will automatically mute.
Additionally because they are USB (and separate from your default sound device) you can set your Skype to use them and your default windows sounds (i.e. music etc) to still go through other headphones/speakers.

Oversized USB dongle might be an issue on laptops
Slight static on low volumes

I owned these for a whole 2hrs before they broke...literally! Audio is decent but unfortunately the build quality is absolutely pathetic! The USB connector (which is essentially the "brains" of the product) snapped in half after a minor bump, rendering my brand new headphones useless. I definitely wont be purchasing any Plantronics products in the future.

We use these for our customer services team who are on them all day, every day. Decent build quality and good voice quality.
They stand up to daily abuse and while nothing is indestructible, they certainly fare better than some other brands with superior voice quality.
A great buy at the price!

Fits nicely in my macbook pro with the other USB input occupied, sound quality is exceptional. Comfortable too!

Great set, works extremely well for us

Bought the headset for gaming - it has excellent noise cancelling properties when on TeamSpeak
The drivers could be a bit better, as the bass response is not as good as other headphones, but it is not sounding 'tinny' still has some good frequency response.
Would recommend 8/10
