Listening is great, talking, not so much

  • By Frank from Sammamish WA USA on Monday, July 09, 2012
  • Pros: Good listening interface
  • Cons: Weak microphone interface.
  • Review: The audio quality through the headphones is outstanding. In fact, with the noise-cancelling cups, it blocks out almost TOO MUCH sound... you are really in a bubble with these on.

    That being said, the quality of the microphone converter is pretty terrible. It fades in and out when I am using a variety of interfaces, including Skype, Google Chat, etc... I think it needs a better preamp circuit or something. Or maybe even a custom driver to adjust it.

    It would also be nice to have a control for mixing the mic back into the headset, since the isolation is so great. There is a way to sort of get that to work with Win7 Sound drivers, but it also screws up the use of the computer when you disconnect the headset (you get a screechy feedback loop).

Could be alot better

  • Pros: Functional
  • Cons: No On/Off Switch, Expensive.
  • Review: This product does what it advertises, but I have went through two of these in six months, due to breaking and fraying wires while changing batteries. An On/Off switch is badly needed here, and for the price I don't think it's asking much that the manufacturer include that. No other adapter if found has an on/off switch, so I assume they all have around the same quality.

  • By Conrad from Bull Creek WA Australia on Tuesday, September 01, 2009
  • Pros: Connects to computer easily..
  • Cons: Not loud enough, doesn't have speaking recog..
  • Review: It does entirely what as it says.. I just hope that you all have a hearing aid.. The volume is so damn low that you can barely hear what the other person/computer is saying. Unfortunate, as the headset I bought can do better (which I know as I have used in a C-152 about 8 times now :) )
