_
"Mic works very well."

Quality

Quality:
"well, its a easy product, but it is just I hope buy, the quality is no so great."
_
"Most headsets have fine incoming call quality, so I've been mostly concerned with outgoing call quality (which many cell phone headsets are terrible at)."
_
"I had many complaints about the sound quality from people that I called."
_
"While I had no problem with the quality, and wanted a below the ear style due to wearing glasses sunglasses, the assembly and pivot on the earpiece conflicts with earrings."
_
"If I know that I am going to be in some wind I will use this headset instead of my wireless - just as a comparison and I use a Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus and it is a great wireless headset, but for real sound quality on both ends you can't beat the Plantronics MX500 series."
_
"Sound Quality: Good on the transmitting end."
_
"These are the very best in sound quality, both ways."
_
"It's slightly cumbersome to get on, and a mirror helps get it on straight, but it is comfortable once on and the awesome call quality trumps any quibbles I may have with the design."

Volume

Volume:
"It could be that my hearing is not the best, but the ear mic volume is a bit low for me."

_
"Also, the volume on this is terrible if using in a car."
_
"The adjustable volume is nice too as well as the mute slider switch in case you have to yell at the dog to stay out of the garbage and don't want to treat your caller to that lovely sound."
_
"I don't know if mine is defective, but I can only hear at a reasonable level when both the phone and headset volume are set to max."
