Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound, small fit, awkward microphone place I like sound from Blackwire 500 headset but I am unable to work with them for periods longer than 30 minutes due to headband, with minimal padding, sitting uncomfortably on my head with both sides of headset extended to maximum. I cannot move entire headset higher up as it would mean that speakers sit on the upper and middle part of my ears.Another part of the design I find annoying is the microphone. It is located between headband and outside of the earpiece and in standard position when lowered it touches my cheek which would result in scratching noise if not adjusted. Once I adjust it to be further away, I cannot fold it back to vertical position without adjusting again as otherwise it would hit headband plastic This is minor inconvenience and might not be a bother for all users. I consider quality of used materials as very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent call quality and noise suppression! I bought primarily for Skype calls and this is an excellent fit. Sound is crystal clear and background noise suppression is excellent. can tailor the amount of suppression on the mic. If you want quality stereo headphones for music, get one purpose built for that. People, realize that most headsets for phone calls are tuned to enhance mid-range frequencies - not for music.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap, poor-quality materials fall apart after a month or two. I went with Plantronics because I thought that they were the premium brand, and I was initially pleased with the impressive clarity and volume --both on my end and my interlocutor's. I was (at first) glad to have bought the most expensive headset that I could find then: the C520-M.But the cheap fake-leather materials fell apart after a few months. The material on the over-the-head headband and the ear-cups disintegrated. Now I can't use them without getting black plastic crumbs in my hair and in my ears and all over my clothes and cubicle. There is also an idiotic design flaw that should have easily been caught in any testing of normal use: the hard plastic pod on the cord (containing the mute and volume controls) has square shoulders that ALWAYS get caught on the desk or table when one stands up! Every time! This gives the cord an incredibly hard yank! The pod quickly bares the wires leading into it. All they have to do to remedy it is taper the shoulders of the (currently rectangular) pod!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pair of headphones for Skype Got these for work so that I can use them for Skype business calls. It does its job well. I now also use it for listening to music. I would say it's not the best for music, but it works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good for gaming I really like he simple design and it has a great microphone. However, the sound quality always sounds like I'm in a or something. All the audio sound distorted and far away which is very bad for music, videos, gaming, etc.
