Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Now for the drawback: It is not a wireless Bluetooth device."
_
"I've seen others here mention the great quality, but clearly, they have never used a decent headset, must be comparing it to bad Bluetooth sets, or they got a pair in which the boom wires hadn't broken, yet, before they opened the box."
_
"We tried a Bluetooth headset, but it wasn't anywhere as good as this, and it died on us."
_
"My only other option is a Bluetooth headset and I find them uncomfortable to wear all day."
_
"I bought this for my cellphone because I hate Bluetooth headsets."
_
"Maybe it's not as nice as a more expensive bluetooth model, but it works well and is a thrifty alternative."
_
"Others on the phone tell me they can hear me really well with this headset (vs. before when I was using my cell's bluetooth system)."
_
"Bluetooth rather than a wired set would be nice, but I'd have to spend $ for a bluetooth-enabled phone."
_
"Works great with my Panasonic Bluetooth 6.0 Plus Telephone station."
_
"I went to a Bluetooth unit for the iPhone and am very happy with it."
_
"OVERALL THIS IS A NICE CONCEPT, AND I DO HAVE A BLUETOOTH THAT I COULD HAVE SET UP WITH MY HOME PHONES, BUT CHOSE THE EASIER ROUTE."

Button

Button:
"really good product, cheap and sturdy, only problem is there is no mute button"
_
"The only thing this is missing is a mute button the line."
_
"This isn't a bad product, but it's a bit flimsy, it doesn't have a mute button, and it doesn't fit snuggly on your head."
_
"While we're very pleased with that purchase, it does have one annoying design quirk: the redial button is in a touchy position - try to tuck the phone in the crook of your shoulder and you're almost guaranteed to interrupt your current call."
_
"I wish it had a mute button, but I can live without it if the sound is good and it is."
_
"It fits the small phone jack, works with the headset button and is easily heard in a noisy environment."
_
"Quite good but has no volume control or mute button."
_
"If you liked this review, please click the YES button, thanks."
_
"I work from home, so I needed a corded telephone with a headset jack and mute button, as well as a headset that would fit the jack."
_
"While it would be nice to have volume and or mute controls on the headset, using the buttons on the phone works just as well and (hopefully) shaves a few dimes off the cost of this unit."

Cable

Cable:
"Also, the small clip that came attached to the cord, broke as I was unwrapping it."
_
"I'd pay double for one that has reinforced flex points at either end of the cable, as I'm sure this is where the failure lies."
_
"Not so good, the cord dislocated from the headset after about a month of use."
_
"I purchased the wrong headset -- this one requires the cord be connected to the phones."
_
"It appears to have poor quality, or low quality wire used in the construction, and has a broken wire in the cord."
_
"I may have owned a dozen of these headsets, of a number of brands, and every one has had to be junked because the wires inside the cord broke."
_
"And the cord is a good length."
_
"There's no predicting that, of course, but this one is well-reinforced where the cord meets the jack, so that inspires confidence."
_
"In general I was pleased with the usage of this headset for the few months that I had it; The primary criticism I would have is the cord is TOO long, actually - gets tangled up too easily."
_
"Headband is adjustable, earpiece is padded, mic can be moved around, and the cord is nice and long."
_
"The length of the cord is adequate."

Clip

Clip:
"Also, the small clip that came attached to the cord, broke as I was unwrapping it."
_
"My only gripes are the clip broke off, and the foam comes off and I have to repeatedly put it back on the earpiece."
_
"The little tooth on the clip broke in the first few days and the ear piece slides freely now but, it still holds snug to the head."
_
"The cord clip on the new one also broke fairly early on but I just went back to using a binder clip instead."
_
"I am so happy Amazon carries this Panasonic Headset--I do not like the ones that clip around your ear-they are very uncomfortable for me at least."
_
"So that means you have to clip the phone on in order to walk about, Quite unpleasant when you are in your underwear,"
_
"I like being able to clip my phone to my pants, put the headset on, be hands free, and chat away while I get my housework done."
_
"I love love love how I can put my headset on and clip my phone to my belt and do chores while talking."
_
"Works very well, the lapel clip is a handy feature for the business environment."
_
"well---I like this, it's simple and easy with no weird things on the clip."
_
"Fits well, easy to adjust, and a clip so I don't get tangled in it."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The plastic headband seems a little flimsy, but it is certainly light and comfortable, so I guess that's the trade off."
_
"Comfortable, a little hard to adjust the gooseneck for the mic."
_
"... which is the plastic headpiece going up and down to fit your head... the plastic isn't very thick solid, thus I have already broken two of these... but the sound and comfort are great."
_
"Volume control works as it should and it has a good comfortable fit for my XXL head which has been a problem with any of the plastic headband construction, some costing 4 or 5 times more."
_
"The only thing this headset is not as good at is comfort while wearing it, but still quite adequate even for lengthy girl talk conversations."
_
"These are comfortable and others on the line can actually hear me which is a problem with some other headsets."
_
"Sound quality is good, as well as, comfort."
_
"Ease of adjustment, comfort when wearing and ease of taking off all add up to a good product."

Connection

Connection:
"I purchased the wrong headset -- this one requires the cord be connected to the phones."
_
"Anytime you moved jacks in device the connection was broken."
_
"For those with hearing challenges that need volume adjustment on the handset AND the headset at the same time, they may find this to be frustrating, Also, there is rare crackling on the line, but I fault the phone it came with as the connection seems a tad loose."
_
"However, my first one got some type of faulty connection problem after 6 months and the 2 one broke after 3 days."
_
"The failure seems to be in the plug connection itself, where it makes the turn."
_
"If the wires get twisted too much or have bent too much over time, the connection isn't good anymore and it is crackly and or the person you're talking to can't hear you well."
_
"Sound quality is fine when it is connected well, but the plug (or gasket) is not machined precisely enough."
_
"It's an easy connection to any phone with an external connection."
_
"Then you have to spray the connection with rubbing alcohol once in a while to maintain good connection."
_

Connector

Connector:
"Make sure you know the mm of your cell phone jack prior to ordering, as it is not compatible with Samsung Galaxy, Note, etc."
_
"It did not fit either cell phone because the jack is the wrong size."
_
"Anytime you moved jacks in device the connection was broken."
_
"The problem is that the jack is way too small... so the next step would be to buy an adaptor... but then not wanting to be burned twice, I see that many of the adaptors have poor reviews."
_
"Worked fine... for six months, then the wire broke internally at the phone connector, so it's a throwaway now."
_
"First problem: The adapter didn't fit any of the headphone jacks I own."
_
"It fits the small phone jack, works with the headset button and is easily heard in a noisy environment."
_
"Great headset, but only if you have a 2.5 mm mono jack."
_
"Please note that the jack fits cordless phones (2.5mm? )"
_
"There's no predicting that, of course, but this one is well-reinforced where the cord meets the jack, so that inspires confidence."
_
"I bought it to use on my iPhone so I could listen to conference calls easier, but the jack is too small."

Cordless

Cordless:
"This headset is noot compatible with All cordless phones did not fit mine very disappointed"
_
"I've had a ton of cordless phone headset combos, and weird headsets attached to just a keypad, etc., etc., and finally gave up on these because of 1) battery issues, 2) sound issues when using with a headset, 3) horrible cost with no increased sound quality."
_
"A good cordless phone headset is hard to find."

Cover

Cover:
"The headset still works perfectly but the foam cover to the earpiece was not particularly durable and has now basically disintegrated."
_
"The only thing that might upset anyone is that the cover for the ear padding is losing its outer vinyl layer, but I like the soft fabric underneath better anyway; it's just messy in transition."
_
"(It was probably about time anyhow - the foam microphone cover was pretty dirty...)"
_
"The foam that covers the microphone is a little uncomfortable it's too close to my face - but I can deal with it."
_
"My kitties love the microphone cover...."
_
"Good product, but can't use with my Ottor cover."
_
"(It was probably about time anyhow - the foam microphone cover was pretty dirty...)"
_
"Good build quality - the reversible boom mike moves smoothly and the earpiece cover shows no signs of wear.3."
_
"The ear cushion is a padded comfortable fit that completely covers that portion of my ear making outside noise less likely to break though requiring me to press a finger against the earpiece in order to fully hear."

Design

Design:
"Personally not wild about the over the head design and the ear pad wasn't comfortable."
_
"I would much rather pay more and get a better one but it seems everything out there has the same design problems with the 90 degree cord."
_
"I like the design of it, and it was purely my mistake in not noticing the plugin size."
_
"This left me wondering if the headset had a short, was not compatible with my AT&T; phone, or was not a good design."
_
"Each one that I've had has eventually broken, due to a poor design materials used on the head band."
_
"I only rotated the microphone one time and it broke, so this is obviously a design defect since rotating mic is listed as a feature."
_
"The comfort is okay and the design is simple."
_
"Great value but this version of the headset has a hinged design (presumably to shave a few inches off the packaging) that is constantly catching and pulling my hair in the hinges (and I have pretty short hair)."
_
"good noise isolation, people can hear me excellently, good design"
_
"They work great they are ergo design light weight offering good audio response."
_
"this would be great if my phone was designed for it, but it doesn't"

Durability

Durability:
"It's too premature to rate this product a 5 star product until the durability has been tested which seems to be the biggest problem with the users on this products according to the reviews."
_
"However, since the whole thing is made out of plastic, its durability is not the best."
_
"A very small number of reviewers grumbled about what they thought was flimsy construction and thus, questionable durability."
_

_
"The comfort, quality and durability is fantastic."
_
"The first 5-6 months were great...but I was hoping for a little more durability than that."
_
"I have also been pleased with the durability and comfort of this headset."
_
"Not sure about the durability because I just bought it but so far so good."
_
"As for durability, I guess you could say it's good since it has lasted six years, but in truth I'm surprised it lasted this long because the adjustable parts are made of brittle plastic."

Level

Level:
"Not finding the Panasonic model in my local stores, I went with a highly recommended Plantronics headset that from day one failed to deliver equivalent volume levels (perhaps because the Plantronics had a shorter fixed boom that didn't reach to the corner of my mouth)."

_
"Good volume and I get good reports on my voice levels."

_
"Finally my boss ordered me another noise canceling headphone himself to help ease everyone's pain."

"It appears to have poor quality, or low quality wire used in the construction, and has a broken wire in the cord."
_
"The sound quality is good, but it doesn't fit my head as well as other headsets, and I can't adjust it to fit properly."
_
"Good sound quality."

"Sound quality is good, as well as, comfort."

Radio

Radio:
"Purchased one from radio shack for $30 and it was terrible and uncomfortable!"
_
"To be fair, I had to get an adapter in order to use the headset, which I purchased at Radio Shack, and I suppose it's possible that the problem is with the adapter rather than the headset."
_
"The sound on my end is not quite as clear as my old Radio Shack model, but it's plenty good."
_
"I use it to do internet radio broadcasts and the sound is remarkably good."
_
"works with my radio shack headset adapter very well."
_
"I was able to get a converter plug at Radio Shack for itl"
_
"This headset is just as good as the $30 Radio Shack one it's replaced."
_
"I love my new head phones for my radio and my I Pod."

Reception

Reception:
"it has the worst reception in the world and not a good tool to use while driving, because the cord tangles everywhere."
_
"The KX-TCA60 not only gave me good volume and relative clarity of reception, but it seemed to boost the cell phone's ability to pick up a strong signal. "
_
"Reception on the other end has never been great either."
_
"This has terrible reception, and every time you move the cord it crackles so loud that you can't hear the other person."
_
"Very comfortable and reception is fine."
_
"Reception is good on both ends."
_
"Wears comfortably; ease of use; reception excellent, and mike works well."
_
"There is a cord between the the phone and the headset but it has great reception and is the best headset I've used -- and I've bought really expensive headsets along with the cheap ones...this one is a keeper."
_
"We have Sony business phones and the reception both ways is crystal clear."

Simple

Simple:
"I have had tons of headsets, for all sorts of things, but this one is junk, plain and simple! "
_
"Though the reviews are right that the sound is good and it is quite comfortable, it's not clear why Panasonic does not fix the simple flaw--except if it's to get us buying more."
_
"Simple, cheap, great while it works."
_
"The comfort is okay and the design is simple."
_
"A simple headset that works great at a great price."
_
"only wish it was more user friendly trying to do simple things like add a caller from caller id to its phonebook."
_
"This headset is simple and works well."

Size

Size:
"Also, the small clip that came attached to the cord, broke as I was unwrapping it."
_
"It did not fit either cell phone because the jack is the wrong size."
_
"The problem is that the jack is way too small... so the next step would be to buy an adaptor... but then not wanting to be burned twice, I see that many of the adaptors have poor reviews."
_
"This product needs a clear description that says it is not compatible with smartphones (iPhone, Android) due to the small size of the jack."
_
"Wrong size of input makes it useless ."
_
"Second, even if one does get lucky with the wiring, the set is VERY uncomfortable, for a couple reasons: 1) the speaker's size is so small, it would barely fit a three-year-old's ear comfortably (which makes for more adjusting); and 2) you also have to put the boom right in front of your mouth, and with the ridiculously-large, spherical, clown-nose-like size and shape of the boom, it rubs against your mouth, all the time, causing more noise."
_
"Size matters with this thing... and it needs to be clear in the description."
_
"It's built pretty sturdy, and can easily be adjusted for smaller, or larger head sizes."

_
"I bought it to use on my iPhone so I could listen to conference calls easier, but the jack is too small."

Sound

Sound:
"That doesn't matter to me, but decent sound really does."
_
"I was very dissapointed with this item - the manafacturer's plastic packaging had been opened and taped shut again with an inch long piece of scotch tape on either side ( guessing someone before me had already returned it once ) and there was no sound at all , not a fizzle pop or other sound coming through the headphones- completely dead."
_
"Theses headphones are great when it come to sound quality though they broke after 3 months, I think it is because I have a big head haha but other than that they meet up to my standards"
_
"It starts sounding static-y and people complain they can't hear me."
_
"Nice head set, amplifies the missing sounds that the hard of hearing persons need, but after about one weeks use I could answer phone calls but the caller could not hear my response, no matter what Panasonic phone I plugged the head set into."
_
"I have been getting complains about sounding muffled so decided to look for another one."
_
"The sound quality is good, but it doesn't fit my head as well as other headsets, and I can't adjust it to fit properly."
_
"Good sound quality."
_
"Sound quality is good, as well as, comfort."

Speaker

Speaker:
"Second, even if one does get lucky with the wiring, the set is VERY uncomfortable, for a couple reasons: 1) the speaker's size is so small, it would barely fit a three-year-old's ear comfortably (which makes for more adjusting); and 2) you also have to put the boom right in front of your mouth, and with the ridiculously-large, spherical, clown-nose-like size and shape of the boom, it rubs against your mouth, all the time, causing more noise."
_
"I used to call my Dad and if he said anything about speaker phones, it failed the test."
_
"She hates speaker phones so this seemed like a no-brainer, & it was."
_
"It's nice and tight fitting to the head, (a problem I've had before) and the speaker stays put!"
_
"The first one I use in my home office as I spend a lot of time on the phone and hate the way speaker phones sound."
_
"On the downside (at least initially), the headset speaker cushion forms a relatively tight seal against the ear, that causes an echo hollow seashell type sensation that is very irratating and combined with the tighter fit fatiguing even after you take it off."
_
"The voices heard through the speaker are clear and the microphone is adjustable as well as the headband."
_
"Purchased with the Panasonic KX-TG6511B handset, I find the Panasonic KX-TCA60 Hands-Free Headset to be very comfortable with the black foam earpiece around the ear speaker to be very good in canceling out other noise."
_
"Great, I use it every day at work and it is clear on both the speaker and the microphone."
_
"The speaker phone works so well I have only used this headset a few times."
_
"Pros: very comfortable to wear, easy to use, fantastic sound quality both for the speakers and the mikeCons: no volume control mute (although it doesn't really need it); ear cover starts shedding after 5+ years of useNote: works well with Panasonic home handsets and really old cell phones; to use with modern cell phones, you need a small adapter from 2.5mm to 3.5mm jack"

Static

Static:
"However all my coworkers complained about annoying static noises from their end."
_
"disappointed that it is full of static after just a day or so of use."
_
"On my first attempt to use this piece of garbage, EVERY move of the boom microphone causes painful static, until you get it in just the right position."
_
"Whenever the cord moves, there is terrible static---in BOTH headsets."
_
"Very hard to hear without all the static."
_
"I won't say they are great because they start picking up alot of static after just a few monthsno matter which phone I use them on."
_
"Have a awful time finding an adaptor that works well and fits in my phone without awful static etc."
_
"It does break quickly (starts crackling, causing static, or cutting out sound) after a few months, but it's cheap and easily replaced."
_
"Alittle static once in a while, but good"
_
"Other than that, it seems there is no static and others have not complained about hearing me, so I guess it sounds good on the other end of the conversation."
_
"There is no static or back ground noise and it has very good sound quality to it."

Value

Value:
"I know it is not expensive but if they break in such a short time frame it is not really a good value."

"When I find one that not only is of good quality and is a great value, it sure is a great deal."
_
"Comfortable, has long enough cord (which many headsets don't), and a good value for the money."
_
"Great value for price."
_
"Good value for the money."
_
"lol....You will appreciate their many features, their value and ease of use."
_
"Great value for the money... works great! "
_
"Great value but this version of the headset has a hinged design (presumably to shave a few inches off the packaging) that is constantly catching and pulling my hair in the hinges (and I have pretty short hair)."

Voice

Voice:
"Terrible voice quality."
_
"Nobody's complained about how my voice comes across, the boom and the headband adjust, the sponge pad covering the mic is larger than I expected, it has that clip for holding the cord to your garment."
_
"Very convenient, my only complaint is that I can't hear my voice in the earphone when I speak."
_
"I have used these for about 12 years and find that a headset lasts around 2-3 years; after that, the quality of your voice degrades and the person on the other end cannot hear you as clearly."
_
"People complain my voice is not clear."
_
"The only negative side to this headset was there is an inflection in my voice when walking to fast, but i still enjoy it and recommend this product and seller!"

Volume

Volume:
"Worked Great at first, only complaint is it's too LOUD and there's no volume control."
_
"Works well, but the one feature that is missing is volume control."
_
"For those with hearing challenges that need volume adjustment on the handset AND the headset at the same time, they may find this to be frustrating, Also, there is rare crackling on the line, but I fault the phone it came with as the connection seems a tad loose."
_
"The only criticisms I have are that the volume must be controlled by your handset and their is no volume control anywhere on the headset itself."
_
"Not Good, but Not Bad- No volume or mute in the headset"
_
"Volume not so good."
_
"Quite good but has no volume control or mute button."
_

Wireless:
"Now for the drawback: It is not a wireless Bluetooth device."
_
"This is for your landline but I, who has had endless problems with wireless headsets decided to buy a headset adaptor for the iphone and now use it plugged into headphone jack."
_
"Too bad it's not wireless, as it would be nice if you didn't have to have your phone attached to you while you talked, but that's not even a big deal because it's still hands free."

"The device works well with my Panasonic wireless phone system."
