Product Description

The Plantronics .Audio 370 "Open Ear" Headset fuels the excitement of team gaming. It's ideal for music - 40mm speakers dish up maximum bass response. Ample ear cushions provide hours of comfort and the lightweight, adjustable headband provides hours of intense sound in form-fitting comfort. It's also great for gaming -- a noise-canceling, telescoping microphone gives you accurate positioning and crystal-clear voice transmission. Noise-canceling mic cuts through background clamor Compatible with most PC sound cards for plug-and-play ease

Customer Reviews

They sound great.
M. Boyd
The ears on these are huge and very comfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time.
Robert W. Wynne
The cord's a little long (about six feet), but that's easily fixed with a twist-tie.

Nice upgrade over my old plantronics headset that they discontinued. I hope these last a bit longer. Frame is more solid and the mic boom is beefy and should stand up to wear and tear. The cans are nice and large and fit completely over your ears. Very comfortable - wearing them for 3-4 hours is no problem. Since they are open ear they keep your ears from getting sweaty and also allow you to hear the wife when she wants to get you off the computer. Mic is crisp and clear over Ventrilo/Teamspeak. Mainly use them for gaming and sound is great for a standard headset. I have it coupled with an X-FI Xtremegamer sound card and the detail is great. Highly recommended for the budget gamer.

I have used this item for about 3 weeks now and have to say it both good and bad.

The sound is clear and I can find no fault there. The ear cups are also large so to provide plenty of room and not get hot inside due to the open air of them.

My problem comes from the microphone. There is no fault in the voice quality, as I have asked people I talk to and they say it is better than my old unit for clarity and no 'tinny' sounds. My problem is that after about 2 weeks, the arm for the mic now drops to straight down. That is to say that the part you talk into is on my shoulder. It is VERY loose, and I had to turn it up every few minutes to have it just drop back down.

If this part were to be tightened in future models, or if there was someway to fix the current, I would have gave the unit a 5 for 5!

Just like how everyone else warned me in their reviews, mic falls down. Didn't take long for it to start happening either. Headphones are large and make you look silly, but they don't touch your ears and are quite comfortable. Cord is nice and long.

While currently listening to the headphones listed above I can truely say that they are worth the money. In fact, the price is one of the reasons to get these.

The sound from them is crisp and clean. The bass is a little low for me, but on the other hand I play the bass and if it's not shaking the house it's too low for me. :) The headset works great in games with the crisp sound.

The microphone hasn't let me down yet. I chat online and the people I talk to say that I am clear and easliy understood. So no complaints there.

These headphones are a keeper. They sound great. The microphone is clear. They are comfortable. Good buy.

I use this headset for virtual flying games, IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, Microsoft FSX, and FPS games like Call of Duty. I use the headset for communicating with squad mates while flying or shooting and it helps to keep the noise level down in the house when the action gets a little busy. It also helps pinpoint where a sound is coming from in FPS games so there's a better chance of telling if someone is coming from behind. Overall, a good headset that is reasonably comfortable and has good sound and microphone.

A couple of downsides that I see are: the wires from the headset are small and seem a little fragile, so I try to be careful connecting/disconnecting; the boom mic has a tendency to sag downward and I sometimes have to reposition it. I added a spot of silicone under the swivel part of the boom that is attached to the earpiece and it sort of helps the boom to stay put.

I have owned this headset for over 3 years. Hands down it is the best headset I have ever owned. Headsets that I have bought in the past ranged in price from $20 to $50 and would typically last about 1 year (being used nearly every day). When I bought these I was concerned at first due to the $100 price tag at the time. However, it turned out to be a great investment. I think they are worth the money at $100 so, at just over $50 (as of 12-2-10) they are a steal!

Pros:
*Durable. Has survived 3 moves, several drops, and a handful of dogs tripping on the cord.
*Very long cord.
*Inline Volume/Mute.
*Cloth ear covers. They are very comfortable. I have done 12 hours sessions with no discomfort.

Cons:
*Microphone can't hold it's own weight. Very quickly the microphone will just fall to it's lowest position.

The headset is very comfortable and the sound quality is great. The clarity of the mic is not the problem but the boom and volume are.

The company boasts that the headset has an extendable boom. What they don't tell you is that it is only another half inch of movement which is quite useless. That said, you can't get the microphone close enough to your mouth so that it receives enough db to transmit at a proper volume.

I have adjusted all sound settings, put on mic boost, etc. and it simply will not transmit loudly enough to anyone in Ventrilo, Skype or other recording software.

I replaced it with a $12 cheap headset which is doing the job of this $50 headset.

I bought this headset for connecting with guildmates on Ventrillo, but I find myself using it for pure listening enjoyment more and more these days. It provides very good sound clarity in the earphones, and while I haven't heard what the mic sounds like over Vent, I haven't had any problems with it yet, and its folding up into the main headpiece is convenient. The cord's a little long (about six feet), but that's easily fixed with a twist-tie. Quite a worthwhile purchase.
