3 reviews for Poly Blackwire 5220 USB Headset – 8X231AA

  1. Arlene (verified owner)

    Excellent product. Delivered on time next day.

  2. harris128

    I purchased this headset for my wife to use with our VOIP Panasonic phone as she works from home doing tech support during tax season. She needed an over-the-ear headset, as I too work from home and did not want any background noise filtering through to her clients. We couldn’t both be happier. Great product!

  3. Don

    The headset renders call recipient’s voice clearly but my own voice sounds disconnected to me. Maybe it’s the Noise cancelling technology. I have to position the headset slightly off my ears to sound acceptable as I use it for outbound phone calls. If it was to listen only, it would be awesome for music!
