The circular part of headset that holds the microphone falls off easily. The same piece on other side is also fragile. Since this headset goes around the back of your neck forgot about resting your head on anything. Earmuffs don't even touch your ears, they are actually like 1 inch away. The volume control is also horrible, the switch to toggle microphone can lock and unlock by itself. Just look at some of the pictures provided and you can get a better understanding of what I'm saying.

To be fair, this is a cheap (in terms of cost to you) headset that has decent sound and I find it very comfortable. The design is good in theory - over the ear pads but with less material to keep things cool and light (less sweat and doesn't feel heavy on your head). However, the design of the headset itself is severely offset with construction and reliability problems and one serious design flaw.

I will start by saying that I am on my third set of these. I purchased the first and it died (one of the sides stopped producing sound). I did not hold onto the warranty information so I ended up buying another one because I liked how it felt and sounded and thought it might have been a fluke because Logitech is generally a respectable company. The second one died within a month (no sound at all). This time I held onto my purchase info and warranty and had another one sent. Well, again, almost immediately I had issues. The first thing that happened is that the microphone broke off with little or no pressure. I was able to superglue the cap that holds the mic into place back on but the mic has no tension on it and slides all over the place.

As far as I can tell, this headset is plagued by the following issues:

1. Cheap plastic casing. This contributes to its light feel but is so cheap it breaks far too easy. This thing will take a hit even falling off your desk onto carpet.

2. The wiring seats are not strong enough. If the cord gets caught on anything and you don't notice it and pull on it with even a little force, you may effectively pull the wires out of the speaker drivers and kill the headset.

3. The volume mechanism is a joke.

I'm in higher education and purchased this headset to use on my MacBook Pro to record voice/speech into GarageBand and Audacity. The headset arrived today, and I just finished trying it out in GarageBand. Some initial observations:

- I took the headset out of the box, attached the USB connector, and plugged it into my laptop, where I had already opened GarageBand. GarageBand immediately recognized the new device, and asked me to confirm that I wanted to use it as my sound input. Easy!

- I recorded some short clips of myself speaking -- on the first playback the volume was low, but once I adjusted the volume control on the headset, it was fine. The sound quality was definitely an improvement over the built-in laptop mic, but I'm not sure if it outperforms a less expensive headset.

- My first recordings were in a quiet office, which wasn't the best setting for testing the sound-canceling, but the mic didn't pic up any background noise (from my laptop, for example). Later, I tried recording again in a computer lab where there was other activity (typing, fans, quiet background conversation) and the mic did seem to help block that out.

- Many of the comments are about comfort. Since I'm not going to be gaming or wearing the headset for long periods of time, comfort is less of an issue for me. I do wish that the headset were adjustable -- it's one solid piece and seems to assume that everyone's head is the same size. I have a smaller-sized head, and it slips right off if I don't rest it on top of my ponytail.

To sum up:
- super easy to use and compatible with MacBook Pro/GarageBand
- sound quality is good -- certainly much better than the built-in mic
- might be a little pricey just for basic podcasting
- headset isn't adjustable, so you sort of have to hope that your head is the right size

microphone quality -- good
hearing -- good
comfort -- bad
I like the design and sound quality of the headset. It's just that it goes around the back of the head and not over the top of the head that makes it so uncomfortable. At least if you put the headset over the top of the head, the weight of the headset would be resting on your head, but as it is right now, cupping the side of your head with nothing to hold it up but the skin of your head, makes it uncomfortable for me because it pulls down on the skin at the side of my head. I have a buzz cut, so maybe that is a factor, but still it hurts. I think even if I grow out my hair, it would still drag the skin down on the side, so I don't understand how I would wear it for like a few hours (5 minutes is bad enough). It works beautifully on every other factor, just this factor. It's uncomfortable enough to make me wish maybe I should have bought another headset.
Maybe it will "grow" on me with time, but I really don't think I'll get used to this uncomfortable "dragging down" of the skin around my ears. Why couldn't logitech just re-design this part and it would have been perfect for me.
