I broke one of the ear pieces after having the headset for less than 3 months!!
Mook Dubious
There is no feedback from the mic going into the headphones, i.e. you can't hear yourself well.
DiscriminaTor
I was able to put the pin back in so that if I didn't move too much it would hold together.

I was really excited about this headset when I first received it. They sound great and come in a nice portable storage case.
After about 6 weeks of use, one of the pins holding a joint on the headband broke, so they were no longer wearable. I was able to put the pin back in so that if I didn't move too much it would hold together. Two days later, one of the joints broke. The plastic just fell apart and made the headset unwearable. Fortunately I was sent a replacement pair for free. Six weeks later, the second pair broke in the same place and I again had a dangling ear cup. Since I still had the old set, I was able to take the one working joint off of each and make a single working pair. That lasted about 2 weeks before another one of the joints broke.

Summary: Many moving parts all made out of cheap plastic. One particular component broke and was replaced 3 times in a period of 4 months.

I had been using the freetalk wireless stereo headset and it works very good. The problem is that it's broken now! The part that supports the earphones its very thiny and fragile. It's not possible to use it any more. It's not worthy to buy it and use it for a little time.

Got my freetalk wireless headset about a year ago.. I got the deluxe, fold flat model. Sound quality is flawless. Range is VERY good. I've gotten 30ft through WALLS!!! But, there is one problem with it. The swivel section on the earpieces is VERY flimsy!!!..

I broke one of the ear pieces after having the headset for less than 3 months!! No, I was not abusing them. If you look closely at the fold flat model, where the swivel attaches to the ear pieces, there is approximately a one millimeter thickness of plastic connecting them. Totally unacceptable for something designed to be worn on the head. (And I typically wear all headphones around my neck since I use the stereo for listening.) Several other models share the same problem..

So, buyer beware and choose carefully. You'll never find fault on the range or clarity.. but you won't be able to wear them long and trying to glue them back together is VERY difficult!!!

BTW, Asus sells an identical item MUCH cheaper... !!!!

I've owned this headset for about three months and regret spending the money on them. The original Freetalk wireless headset I owned lasted two years or more before the padding finally started coming off the cans. Other than this, it worked great. This cheap piece of junk didn't last three months and it's fraught with flaws.

The original Freetalk wireless headset had a very nice feature in which raising the microphone to the upright position automatically mutes the microphone, but this feature isn't supported in this version. The only way to mute the microphone with this version is to push the power button, but there's a flaw in the firmware. If you somehow manage to turn on the headset with the microphone muted (and this has happened to me several times), there's no way to unmute the microphone. You can push the power button all you want, but it doesn't do anything. The only way to unmute the microphone when this happens is to turn off the headset, wait a few seconds, and then turn it on again. Worse is that there's no indication anywhere that the microphone is muted. The only way to find out is to make a call and wonder why the other person isn't responding or to go into Windows recording devices, turn on "listen to this device", and see if you can hear yourself speaking.

The mechanism used to mount the cans to the headband is very flimsy and will break even with routine use. Basically it's just a couple of very tiny plastic pins that hold a cap on the swivel mechanism at the end of the headband. After looking at the mechanism, I'm surprised it lasted this long.

Like everyone here stated, it breaks easily the joint.. the headphone is really good but it really breaks easy. my first pair took 15 months to break and my second pair took 3 months to break the same side again.. I wish freetalk made it stronger :(

UPDATE (Dec 2010)-after returning the Freetalk headset, I ended up buying a (never heard of) Soundon brand headset from QVC (which seems to be the only store that carries it) which costs a lot less yet looks surprisingly similar to the Freetalk headset. It does, however, have a much better audio quality for music listening and more comfortable ear pads. There's also an option to buy an iPod adapter for the Soundon headset, which allows to use it with an iPod and not only with the PC unlike the Freetalk. The adapter didn't work with the iPhone unfortunately

ORIGINAL REVIEW-
After reading a number of reviews on practically all other similar wireless (NOT bluetooth) headset offerings, namely-

Logitec Clearchat
Plantronics 995
Creative HS-1200
Asus Travelite HS-1000w

and realizing they all have some major limitations/drawbacks reported- ranging from poor battery life to uncomfortable fit to not being able to work while charging, to easily breaking ear pieces, etc, etc, I decided to try my luck with the Freetalk unit.
It is apparently made by a Skype subsidiary of sorts called InStore Solutions. It is also sold on Skype's website. I was hesitant to buy a headset made by a software company in the first place and now I know why.

It could've been a great product, but poor audio quality, very limited application (PC only), and wearing discomfort made me return it (InStore accepted my RMA request) ... I do give it 2 stars for trying though.

All in all, Freetalk is not a very well designed product with very limited application (i.e. PC only). If you're looking for a headset strictly for VOIP calls for stationary use (e.g.
