Rated a Somewhat Helpful Review by the Epinions community
Pros:Good sound quality. Good voice quality. No installation, It just works. Comfortable.
Cons:Expensive.Limited range. Mouth piece on the left side, which just feels strange.
The Bottom Line: Worth buying if you can get it for at least 30% off retail. Otherwise you might want to look at alternatives.
I agree with what many others have said about this unit. The Plantronics 995H wireless headset is relatively comfortable, has good sound quality and no issues with installation. It just shows up with my XP Pro and works 100%. Ear cushions are soft and the mouth piece can be slid up so that it is out of the way, allowing this unit to be used just for music if you want.
The range is spotty. I cannot go more than say twenty feet from my PC. As long as I stay in the office or nearby hallway, it works, so I am satisfied. For the retail price, it would be a real bummer, but I paid $53 total, so at that much of a discount, again, I am satisfied. When it gos out of range the sound cuts out and there is a slight beeping noise. Get closer to th source point and the sound comes back immediately.
The longest I have used th headset for was just over an hour. My ears were very slightly sore when I took it off, but I actually did not notice that until the headset was removed. Rubbing my ears with my hands made the discomfort go away in just a few seconds.
According to family and friends I have talked to with this unit, voice quality is good. better than what they experience when I talk to them via my Blackberry Storm2 using Verizon's network.
