Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not good for gaming I really like he simple design and it has a great microphone. However, the sound quality always sounds like I'm in a or something. All the audio sound distorted and far away which is very bad for music, videos, gaming, etc. October 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sound quality and very comfortable! This is my first headset, which I purchased to use for 'Skype for Business' audio. Wow, was it ever better than using my cell phone! During the first meeting, I could hear every word being uttered in the conference room more than 1,000 miles from where I was sitting. Crystal clear. (The week before I tried the same thing with my cell phone, and every other word was garbled. Big difference.) If you're buying a headset for Skype, be sure to select a model with an 'M' on the end, which signifies that it support Microsoft apps. I am not a technical person, but it was thankfully 'plug and play' and I didn't have any issues setting the headset up for Skype. Very pleased with my purchase! I'm glad I didn't cheap-out with the less expensive models I saw up at Staples. June 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features Bought this a few weeks ago to replace an older model. The enhancement feature that the call is auto answered when you place the headset on is fantastic! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] January 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sound quality is great, headband is uncomfortable I have two of these, a 520 and a 700 series. I like the quality of the sound, it's great for music, webinars and calls. However, the headband seems to have been designed for Frankenstein. When stretched on, the top becomes flat and puts pressure on the top of my head. For all day wear, that can become painful, in spite of the padding. December 7, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by What happened..? What happened? If this is the successor to C420 Plantronics really messed up.Build quality has gone down, now cheaper plastic is used and it shows, even the metal parts have been replaced with cheap plastic. I'm on my 2nd pair in only 2 months. The old C420 lasted me 4(!) years.Sound quality is horrible in comparison. I'm not joking when i say these sound like a pair of really cheap iphone ear plugs, where as the c420's were excellent for talk and media consumption. I would even go as far as saying the C420s were close to Koss Porta Pro's after a few hours of burn in time. The C520 are absolutely horrible for any media consumption, forget music. The sound is flat and boring, no characteristics at all and the music disappears into a broken sounding screech.The comfort is also worse, these are more stiff and has a tighter angle which makes them press really hard on your head. The C420 were excellent in this regard and you could keep them on for 8 hours straight, I cant do 8 minutes in these.Ive used the C420 over 4 years until they broke, sadly the c420 is no longer made and I now have to stick with these.Im not exaggerating, i'm very disappointed in these "premium" headphones.Make the 420 again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leatherette ear cushions disintegrate The headset works well but the leatherette ear cushions disintegrate and cannot be replaced. Why can't headsets be manufactured so the cushions can be replaced as they always wear out well before the electronics. November 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice looking but sound... I would expect more. Very compact and nice looking... butSound is far below what I would expect, voice is having to high frequencies and completly lacking the low range which irritates me and I cannot withstand it. Music... if you plan listening to music then go for something else - completly not for this. June 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I can hear you .. I use this model for work at home. I can hear my customers clearly and they can not tell that I'm working from home or I'm in the office. The headset is comfortable- does not pinch. I like the easy mute feature. June 17, 2015
