If you only need a single purpose headset

Strengths of the product

Appears to be durable as &#%$. This is coming from a person that bought this headset as an interm replacement headset while I fix my other brand. The overall design keeps the weight of the headset light. The strap that comes in contact with your head is nicely designed to have stretch and vented for breath-ability. This same strap looks like it can probably be washed as well, so eventually when you need to clean your headset, it can be done. The Modular design appears to be robust.

Weaknesses of the product

The largest weakness I can find is that this headset does NOT have an inline volume control. If you need to drop the volume of the audio going to your head. They appear to want you to either adjust the complete output from your system or use the Planatronic's console for audio control. The 2nd biggest weakness is that the headset's wiring for the drivers forms a Y shape from the headset to connect left and right earcups.

Additional Comments

As an extreme heavy user of headsets, this is one of the nicer ones a person can buy for the price point. However, there are some significant downsides to consider if you plan on using this headset all the time, everywhere playing with randoms in online games. I think no inline volume control is a HUGE downside if you find yourself not in a position to adjust the volume digitally on your computer quickly enough when something or someone is too loud. Comfort 5/5 Durability 5/5 Multi-purpose usage 2/5
