"Good for a while, then degrades"3.5 starson by cnetisbroken
Pros: Comfortable for long calls. Covers the ear to isolate you so you can focus on the call. Decent sound (inbound and outbound) for Skype. Moderate distance from USB transmitter (20 ft max). Long talk time.
Cons: Mute is built into the boom mic by rotating it up. This causes a lot of noise to be transmitted while you rotate it up - a bad idea during a conference call. I never used it after a few complaints. And, that connection seems to wear out over time, caus
Summary: I considered this top of the line when I purchased it. I wasn't disappointed. But, its function did degrade over time. I make skype conference calls all day long, so this has many 100's or even 1000's of hours of use. I didn't see any degradation in talk time. But, with headsets offering greater distance and sound quality, I'd keep searching if you are looking to use this for Skype calls.
