  1. Gary S (verified owner)

    I used this headset yeaes ago in 911 center and its great, I am glad you had it as it has been discontinued. The newer headsets with foam cushions are not good.

  2. Paula

    This headset is terrible! I should have known better and bought over ear with a headband. I bought because I thought this would be more comfortable and thought the headband would cause indentation in my hair. I have small ears and this is constantly falling out of my ear. I cannot use it without clipping it to my shirt as the weight of the cord constantly pulls it out of my ear. I am also female, so my long hair gets in the way of the cords and causes it to fall out too. I am going to purchase one that has headband with an over the ear. Oh well, so much for the $100 sunk cost.

  3. Kat

    Love this! It fits well in my ear, I hear well thru it and my neck doesn’t hurt anymore!!

  4. LA

    I find that I have to keep readjusting this headset – pushing the earbud back into me ear. In addition, after wearing the headset for over an hour, my ear canal starts to get sore from the configuration of this headset. That’s too bad because I can hear my callers / my callers can hear me very well. Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find the headset that I owned around 10-15 years ago: it fit over the ear (like this set), but there was a hard, quarter-sized disc that folded into your ear. It was very comfortable; nothing had to be crammed into your ear canal.
