Like most people, i don't really lime my voice. But we can't all sound like James earl Jones. When take a bad voice and record it with a bad mike, it makes it that much worse. These make your voice sound like you with a but of added fullness.
Overall - The voice quality is great, the features are good and the value is exceptional.

I do a weekly podcast, so the quality of sound through my headset matters a lot. I purchased this one after seeing it rated #1 on a headset comparison in 2016. I have been amazed at the quality of sound through this little headset for this price.
My I.T. Manager said recently that the sound quality on my podcasts was really good and he asked me what I was using. He was also amazed.
I cannot recommend this great little headset highly enough!
BTW my opinion; these are not comfortable after 1.5 hrs. They irritate my ears to the point I have to use ice to soothe at the end of my day.
I would not recommend these at all! I wish the would sell the PC 151s again or at least the UUSB1.
I recorded a video to test the microphone sound. The microphone is a good one sound-wise, however I didn't notice any noise canceling. The video I made picked up on sounds I wasn't hearing with my old mic - like me setting my reading glasses down on my desk, and there was a strange background hum that I have to assume was my pc.
The volume control worked great. The microphone mute - unmute button didn't quite unmute the first time I tried it and had to push it harder than I should have needed to in order to unmute.
All in all, I think they're junk. Very disappointed in this product.

Die Verarbeitung und Qualität machen einen guten Eindruck.
Der Tragekomfort ist auch in Ordnung. Selbst nach längeren Telefonaten wird das Headset nicht unbequem. Es drückt auch nichts.
Das Headset ist auch sehr leicht. (84 g)
Die Bügel lassen sich rechts und links ausziehen und entsprechend dem Kopf anpassen.
Das Mikrofon lässt sich in einem ca. 150 Grad Winkel bewegen.
Das USB Kabel ist mit 2 m Länge für mich ausreichend lang.
Die Verbindung mit dem PC erfolgte ohne Probleme. Das Headset wird unter Windows automatisch erkannt. Es war weder eine Installation, noch eine Einrichtung erforderlich.
Die Bedienung ist ebenfalls einfach: Am Schalter, der im Kabel integriert ist, lässt sich die Lautstärke regeln, bzw. das Mikrofon an- und ausschalten.
Ganz wichtig: Die Sprachqualität ist einwandfrei.
Eine Aufbewahrungstasche liegt nicht bei.
Ich bin mit dem Headset sehr zufrieden. Preis/Leistung finde ich absolut in Ordnung.
Was mir allerdings nicht gefällt, ist die Blisterverpackung.
Diese ist nur sehr umständlich zu öffnen. Das Headset ist doppelt in Kunststoff verpackt und es wird entsprechend viel Müll produziert. Muss nicht sein.
Hinsichtlich der Qualität für den Preis würde ich mir das Headset aber erneut zulegen und kann es nur empfehlen.
* Funcionan indistintamente en Mac (con adaptador USB a USB C) y en Windows 10.
* El sonido de los auriculares en voz es excelente (en graves no, prácticamente no existen, pero no están hechos para escuchar conciertos).
* Lo mejor es el sonido del micrófono. Graba un tono de voz equilibrado que no necesita ecualización ni edición posterior. Soy profesor y los utilizo para realizar videotutoriales y ahorran mucho trabajo. El trocito de video está hecho con niños jugando con ruido en una habitación contigua y los clics del ratón tampoco se escuchan. Genial!
Pues bien, este es el primer micro que, a nivel de sonido, está perfectamente equilibrado para lo que busco: calidad de sonido muy decente y bastante natural a la par que apenas capta los sonidos ambientes.
Relación calidad-precio muy, muy buena.
No problems with build quality, although the plastic is unlovely and the cushioning is not exactly luxurious (if you were wearing it all day I'd be tempted to splash out on a more comfortable model). But it feels quite robust.
Plugging it in made it appear instantly as an audio device for playback and recording so everything looked good.
However, the problems began when I tested the voice recording -- there was a loud high-pitched whine clearly audible at all times. (Analysis with Audacity showed this was at 4kHz). I tried plugging it into the rear USB ports, the front USB ports and even the (wired) keyboard USB port, but the whine was there all the time.
I was on the point of sending the heeadset back as defective (and complaining bitterly to Sennheiser's tech support) when some googling suggested the 4kHz whine might be caused by the Mac's power supply. Fortunately my Apple monitor that has some USB ports on it, and draws power from a separate power supply. So I plugged into this -- and the whine instantly vanished. The recorded audio is now perfectly clear.
Now, I don't know if the Mac Pro power supply is especially noisy, but it didn't affect the old plantronics headset, so I can only conclude the shielding on this Sennheiser is not up to snuff. A bit disappointing for a brand with a reputation for quality. I obviously can't say if all PC 8 models will suffer from the same flaw, but the unit I received certainly did.
Moral of the story? You might need an external powered USB hub to get the best out of this unit.
HOWEVER - I've had two of these headsets and recording with them is not ideal. There is a high-htz 'squirrel' that seems to be pulled in. Both headsets have had this issue on different devices using different software to record.
ITs quite high htz- so you ahve to have good hearing to hear it - and audio cleaning software will solve it probably - but its a constant annoyance I could do without.
This isn't the intended purpose of the headset and it doesnt happen on compressed audio format i.e. skype calls etc.
Well, that's not really the case!
It does capture a lot of noise. Kids shouting, dog bark can be easily captured. It somewhat eliminates the vehicle sound. But considering the price, I hoped for better noise cancellation.
You can somewhat reduce the noise being captured by reducing the sensitivity of the mic.
The sound quality is more than acceptable, obviously not as good as a pair of full ear earphones but absolutely perfect for gaming and work (I work remotely and am required to speak in conferences semi-frequently).
All in all they're better than I expected, the mic doesn't get in the way, in fact you don't even notice and the sound is perfect for things that don't require a heavy bass part. Highly recommended!
The people I talk to mention that there is a loud noise generated when muting/unmuting the mic with the inline switch, this is confirmed as I regularly saw the on screen volume meter blip when using the mute switch.
Had this lasted, I would have given it 3-4 starts based on my experience, but it died after just over 4 months usage in a home office.
Tested on 2nd laptop, it installed OK but mic also not working, so not a problem on the laptop where is is usually used.
Sound quality is excellent (and so much better having stereo speakers rather than just a single one - seriously it's life changing) and great for listening to music as well as skype/other calls. Comfortable, light, well built and sounds great (and as a bonus it looks good too!). Will buy the same one again if it ever breaks!
