        good sound quality and microphone

        Comments about Sennheiser PC 151 Stereo Headset for Computer Games, VoIP and Skype:

        I use the headset for conducting and participating in webinars at work. Both the headset and microphone work very well. My only complaint is that my Lenovo laptop has a headphone/microphone combo jack so I had to also buy an adapter for the 2 pin setup that came with the headset. It would be good if they offered a version of the headset with a pin for the combo jack.

          I purchased a whole bunch of these for my institution. This headset performs great. Good isolation from outside noise. Great volume and quality of sound, and the microphone works great too. Useful and welcomed feature is the volume and off/on control in the wire. This headset connects via the plugs (one for sound, one for volume), so for use with newer Mac laptops for example, you will have to purchase a USB connector. Unfortunately, in this brand, the USB connector is more expensive than the headset itself.

            Great headset, sound is great, and the bass is fine, Doesn't sit loose or too tight on my head. Jut a great headset overall. Haven't tried the mic yet, so won't review that.

                Love this headset. I have to wear headphones for most of the working day, and in terms of comfort these have become a lifesaver compared to many previous pairs of headsets (with mic) and headphones (no mic) that I have used. Sound quality is not a critical concern, but these sound clean and not harsh. Switch/volume position could be a bit closer to the head, in my setup.

                  I bought this headset to use with a Sony hand held digital recorder. It performs very well for recording my voice for later use transcribing it with Dragon software. Audio is crisp and clean and the earphones provide good audio listening as well.

                    I needed a headset for work for under $50 and choose this one. I have to say I'm very happy with it. Having a nice headset really improves my communications and comfort. I think it's a great value, you can probably spend a lot more but I doubt you'd be able to tell a difference. The only reason I checked the uncomfortable box is that it presses on my glasses and the top of my head which can get sore after a few hours.

                      If you just plug the green jack into your iPhone it takes about 15 seconds to "warm up" or something and the person on the other end can't hear you very well. After that it's fine. Once I got a two-jack-to-one-jack adapter that was specific to the iPhone the problem stopped. The fit is slightly off on my head but that's probably my head's fault. Can hear the other person great, and the other person can hear me great.

                      This is mainly used for Skype communications and is a huge improvement over my previous headset.
                      The only slight negative is that may be heavier that my previous set, but also is more comfortable to wear.

                          Had to do an online class and at first couldn't figure out why I couldn't hear anything, but tested my CD player and that was great, then the students told me how to hook up the audio and wa la! They are very comfortable and I anticipate that if you spend any amount of time wearing them, theys hould be fine. Sound is great.

                          I've been using this for a while now for everything from basic music listening to voice communications, radio broadcasting and audio editing. The sound quality somewhat surprised me, both on the headphones and the mic, it's quite good (as would be expected of Sennheiser). Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the inline volume control as I'm now having issues with sound cutting out entirely if the wheel is wiggled even slightly. I intend to address this with Sennheiser's support department but it loses a star for that issue regardless. It's a known issue with inline controls and they should have found a better volume control solution.
