From the Manufacturer
Enjoy crisp, clear audio during your Skype calls with the Plantronics Audio 478 USB Stereo Headset. This Skype-certified headset features a noise-canceling microphone that ensures you are always heard loud and clear. Foam ear pads, inline controls, and a foldable design make this headset a convenient and portable VoIP/Internet calling solution.
Noise-Canceling Microphone for Clear Conversations
The Plantronics Audio 478 USB Stereo Headset uses a combination of audio-enhancing technologies to promote clear, noise-free conversations. The noise-canceling microphone filters out static without muffling your voice, crisply conveying each word. You will be able to communicate more effectively, without the frustration of cutouts and feedback.
In addition, the microphone actively works to tune out background noises, so you will be able to make PC calls in noisy environments. It uses Digital Signal Processing technology to cancel out echoes and boost voice signals, improving clarity.
Stereo Headphones Deliver Rich Audio Performance
With its 32-millimeter drivers and expert sound engineering, the headset is capable of delivering crisp, high-definition audio. The headphones boast a 48 kHz sampling rate, which ensures faithful reproduction of your computer's audio. Meanwhile, the built-in EQ adjusts low and high frequencies to create a clear, balanced tone that is ideal for conversing.
The headphones are also well suited to all your PC needs. Your music will sound rich and full, thanks to the headset's 24-bit audio and inclusive dynamic range. Your gaming experience will improve as well--you will be able to hear in-game audio cues more clearly and communicate with your teammates more effectively.
Inline Panel for Easy, Accessible Control
The headset also features an inline control panel, which gives you quick control over your Skype calls. A call button allows you to answer and end calls with a push*, while a microphone button lets you mute yourself just as easily. You can also adjust volume level with two conveniently placed buttons, which increase or decrease your call's volume incrementally.
Portable, Comfortable Design
Featuring a convenient folding design, the 478 Stereo Headset can easily be stored in a laptop bag or suitcase. The headphones are covered in soft foam ear pads to ensure comfort during extended talking sessions. Additionally, the headset's 2-meter cord gives you flexibility to move around as you talk.
The Plantronics Audio 478 USB Stereo Headset is compatible with any Windows or Mac** computer that has an available USB port. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
I found that I wanted a similar product that has the foam style earpads rather than "leather" ones. I came across the Plantronics headset here and decided to take a chance.
I absolutely love them. The are light, comfortable, and work perfectly. USB works very well (Logitech used A/V green/pink plugs).
Call quality over Google Voice has been perfect, absolutely no issues whatsoever throughout my daily use. Volume adjustment buttons on the cable are fine, although I don't use the "call answer" button (for Skype).
I also like how these fold up easily and take up less room than my previous Logitech headset. Comfortable to wear all day in my opinion. Highly recommended.
1. cheap ($30 inclusive of S&H) yet very high quality (*see below)
2. the voice quality, both receiving and outgoing is "pro" standard. i verified by calling my land line and left voice mail. also had friends called me from their cell phones and land line. the feedback was unanimously "pro like". or "pro". no echo, no background noises, comfortable to listen to.
3. easy to operate. pluck and use from USB port. no need to download any driver or software. (*you must download a driver from Platronics if you want the remote on/off call button to activate. i do not need this function thus no need to download any driver)
4. no conflict with other USB devices. i have a Logitech webcam device attached. both devices work seamlessly, no need for any adjustment on my part.
5. easy on the eyes. nice aesthetic.
1. carrying bag is cheesy. should consider providing a hard carrying case for traveler.
2. USB cable too short. a longer cable would offer a little more flexibility for users. bear in mind in today's PC world, laptop performs the function of a desk top. even better option is to introduce a wireless headset.
for $30-, this headset "Exceeds Expectation".
Other than that, the noise-canceling microphone and sound quality are top notch! The volume controls are excellent and this headset actually gets a lot louder than I can stand. You'll have no problem hearing even the slightest tones with this on!
I have 2 of these. They work better (noise canceling) than any cordless ones I've tried including Logitech H600, and some Skype ones from InStore shop.
