Miicrophone stopped working after six weeks. Save your money.

Good quality Microsoft product with good value for money. Absolutely fine for calls, and the microphone does a good job at not picking anything up further than your mouth. Just be careful it's not muted, as the button on the cable is easily pressed!

Good item for the money - not the world's best but very reasonably priced for a perfectly functional headset.

Its fit for purpose, lightweight, fits a ladys head which most of them don,t, good sound and apparently people on the receiving end can hear me well.

Good value for money, A simple plug and play headset with volume and mute control on the lead everything you would want from a headset for a price.


October 2018

Purchased because the laptop stereo headphone socket was defective, this was an excellent purchase as it allowed me to plug these Microsoft headphones into a USB port and started working immediately.
