I use this primarily for light call-center work and online gaming. With 10~15 minutes calls every 5-10 minutes this headset can easily last an entire sans-lunch 10 hours shift on battery. The sound quality for calls is amazing, and the noise-cancelling mic is pretty good at cancelling out sounds in your environment that you can hear easily, but you wouldn't want your contact to hear.
That praise being said the build quality is iffy at best. Being what appears to be all plastic support construction with relatively heavy headphones/batteries you will find that taking off and lifting the head set from a surface is best done with two hands, otherwise the headset feels too flimsy to support itself while in motion.
As far as sound quality, they easily match up to cheaper, but wired solutions, such as Logitech's Clearchat line or the Plantronic's wired version of this style of headset. They will leave you wanting if you use them for music or other sound-focused media, but are still more pleasant than most laptop speakers.
With gaming, these aren't 7.1 surround or surround emulated so position-based sounds in games become flat as they do with any other headset, but for casual multiplayer matches where you just need to communicate, and aren't super-focused on hearing your enemy's footsteps over your teammate's whining this is definitely adequate.
In short: if you need a professional-quality wireless headset solution and your effective work day is 10 hours or less, or if you need something basic and comfortable for online gaming, this the best price/performance headset on the market.
*Also worth noting, I do not use these with the PlayStation, these were purchased to be used with my Gamin Laptop.
-Sound quality is pretty good (Have not used for Music, but sufficient for chat and gaming)
- Mic quality -> feedback from others good using Discord client
-Flip up mic option is nice
-Connecting with my PC is always effortless
-Plastic - Flimsy feel
-A little too tight for my taste
-Over the ear style is more like on the ear as the cups are not large enough to enclose
-Large USB dongle (have seen smaller flash drives)
-Connection range is a consistent 12-15 feet at best (even with direct line of sight)
The bad side of these are that the construction of these headsets seem to be very cheap. the side sliders that increase the size of the headphones are made of very thin plastic and I would be afraid to drop them on account they might break the first time. With careful use of these headsets I can see them lasting for years (adult kept only, I would not give these to a child).
All in all, these are a decent set of inexpensive head phones that will give you what you need right out of the box. I would recommend them to someone who is looking for a cheaper wireless experience.
I used a Logitech H600 for the past five years, I didn't have any idea how bad the H600 really was at the 60$ price point, until I purchased and received this wireless headset.
I am no fan of corporations in general, especially ones like Logitech that have allowed autocratic profit and growth demands to drag them so far from where they started. It is companies like Plantronics that ensure that companies like Logitech are always on their toes, being competitive on price and performance in all phases of their business.
If you want my final opinion about whether or not to buy the Plantronics Gamecom 818, my opinion is absolutely yes !!! Even if you were to find yourself far less impressed by it, you still didn't pay much to try it out, but I can assure you that your going to be blown away, unless your buying it to replace some 300$ Turtle Beach Wireless set you just broke.
