The lightest headset in its class with an all new over-the-ear design.
Plantronics EncorePro HW530 - headset is rated4.08 out of5 by13.
Rated 5 out of 5 byMichele001 from Not as good as the TriStar H81We've used the TriStar H81 at my office for over 20 years. I guess they no longer make them so the closest thing was the EncorePro 530. This thing wiggles and is not stable on the ear. I'm constantly having to hold the mouthpiece to keep it from wiggling which makes it hard to type and talk. We're stuck with them now but I hate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 byPEH Bos from Great headset- poor ear clipHeadset is great and does everything very well- light, good sound, goo micro phone. The problem is the ear clip- breaks very esily and I can't find a replacement- Plantronics doesn't make it easy to find replacements parts- buying a whole new headset is easy but expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 byConsumerPete from Functions great, wears loose.The headset WORKS great, but the ear piece doesn't feel secure against the ear and often feels like it may fall off while wearing it. I'd recommend this for users who need to use it occasionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 byJunebug from Encore Pro 530I've used Plantronics headsets for years- which have been of the higher end category. I'm not that impressed with the make of this one. I find the two ear pieces provided are too fat to fit over the ear comfortably. The mouth piece would be better if you were able to adjust it closer to the mouth. The ones in the past, I have been able to "bend" closer to the mouth. This one is just one piece and it not adjustable. As far as the working components; hearing a caller and being heard, is fine. Over all the product is good, but I would recommend the more expensive version, (the boss wanted to try the less expensive version to see how it worked before he buys several more for the rest of the office. With that being said, that is why I would not recommend this for a friend to purchase. Spend the extra money and get a more user friendly headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 byjmcb from Quality headsetI've worn this headset for about 2 years now and have only had to replace the padding since it has worn out. I prefer to use the over the head piece personally. I have never had any issues with this item. The quality is amazing. The sound is perfect and it doesn't hurt my ear. I wear glasses and the over the head piece doesn't get in the way either.

Rated 5 out of 5 byLaWorker from GreatWe have these at work. At first I did believe it fit rather loose, after messing around with it, I did then realize you can fold the ear loop so that it fits more tightly. Just be careful not to fold the top of the ear loop as it is the slimmest and most fragile part. I do wish that part was stronger as both my ear loops have broken in the same spot (not due to folding. Besides that it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 byK from MO from Almost perfectAbsolutely love this headset. My only issue is the over-the-ear detachable clip breaks all the time. The eat loop detaches from the rest of the clip. But when I have a working one, this is by far my favorite headset!
