I use this product for telephone prospecting and business calls via Skype installed on my notebook computer.
The sound quality is superb. I can hear the other party clearly and they sound completely natural, not tinny or bassy. People on the other end of the call have told me that it seems like I am in the room with them and I sound just like I do in person.
The headset is also quite comfortable to wear. It is adjustable in size. The earpad pressure is light and gentle, but just firm enough so the headset does not slide around even as I move my head up and down or side to side to read. I typically talk on the phone for 2 to 3 hours at a time and I never have experienced any discomfort at all during my calling sessions.
This is an inexpensive headset. As a result, it is not built like a tank. While I would not characterize the headset as fragile, it nevertheless will break or develop a lot of "static on the line" if you handle it inappropriately or subject it to insults by throwing it in your computer case where it is likely to get banged around, for example. But if you handle the headset with a modicum of care, it will last years. Also, the foam cover on the microphone tends loosen and fall off over time, but it slides back on easily and does not fall off when in use, so I don't see that as a problem.
All things considered, this headset is a tremendous value. For sound quality and comfort, this headset is hard to beat and, at a price of less than $5, its value simply can't be beat.
