Fit

Fit:
"Used daily with Lync Skype-for-business, sort of a weird fit but more comfortable than they look."
_
"(non-rotating ear pieces are never a good fit)."
_
"The fit is a little snug so it might get uncomfortable to wear for hours on end, but I don't, so it doesn't."
_
"The headset itself is comfortable and snug for short periods of use, although I've found that its tight fit becomes uncomfortable after extended use, especially since I wear glasses (and I have a pretty small head, so the average person would probably find it even more uncomfortable)."
_
"The over-the-ear design is nice for keeping out background noise in my home office, but the tight fit makes it difficult, eventually painful, and finally impossible to wear my eyeglasses."
_
"Used daily with Lync Skype-for-business, sort of a weird fit but more comfortable than they look."
_
"Not enough info with product, great sound and comfy fit......when my system would recognize it."
_
"It has very good sound quality and has a comfortable fit."
_
"I've been using this at many hours at work everyday, and - despite its simple looks - its fit is comfortable all day (because the ear pieces rotates for any angles."
_
"The headset adjusts well, my head is larger than average and they fit well."

_
"Great microphone and earphones."

_
"Very clear and the microphone was adjustable so I don't sound like I'm yelling on my con calls."

"the sound is good and the mic makes me sound really clear"

Music:

_
"These aren't going to blow you away with music but they are more than adequate to use for this purpose."
_
"Sound quality is very good - voice pickup is great, and the earphones do a great job at sound reproduction for voice calls and have pretty good quality for music too (I fire up an MP3 every now and then).The portability is better than a Logitech over-the-ear headset I tried (and the USB plug isn't huge like on the Logitech)."
_
"It's also great for listening to music or online radio."
_
"Good For Music:I have been listening to iPod ear buds on my computer for so long I had become accustomed to audio that lacked any bass and good clarity."

Speaker

Speaker:
"It appears that it ins't a problem with the internal parts of the speaker but with the design of the ear piece and arm assembly."
_
"The headset rattles if you turn you head even a little -- very annoying when trying to listen to an on-line speaker."
_
"These headphones have thin foam covering the speakers that does not make a good seal around your ears."
_
"If you pull lightly down on the speaker wire, or hold the ear piece, or apply a little pressure it doesn't rattle which is the only bright side as it isn't a problem with the internal speaker parts."
_
"I'm kinda elitist when it come to earphone but the speakers are actually pretty good."
_
"I can hear nuances in music much better more clearly with these earphones than listening to even good quality speakers."
_
"I've read reviews where someone trashed speakers or headphones that I personally found to be great."
_
"At that point, the system's speakers switched to these automatically and they have been working perfectly ever since."

Volume

Volume:
"Wire volume control is lightweight:I was a little worried about the volume control being that close to the headset; I thought it might weigh down the headset."
_
"The mute volume control on the cord works well and is well placed."
_
"The volume control on the cable is easy to use and conveniently located and the cable itself is long enough for practical use of the headset."
_
"There is also a mute button and 2 volume buttons that work great!"
_
"USB (vs 3.5mm jack) is nice because you can easily control volume & mute (easy-control design)."
_
"These babies are definitely wide enough and they extend down pretty far too (they can go a little farther than I even need).The in-line volume and mute controls are a nice bonus and work well."
