    Plantronics HW530 reviews

    EncorePro HW530 Over-the-Ear Headset is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Encore Pro 530 I've used Plantronics headsets for years- which have been of the higher end category. I'm not that impressed with the make of this one. I find the two ear pieces provided are too fat to fit over the ear comfortably. The mouth piece would be better if you were able to adjust it closer to the mouth. The ones in the past, I have been able to "bend" closer to the mouth. This one is just one piece and it not adjustable. As far as the working components; hearing a caller and being heard, is fine. Over all the product is good, but I would recommend the more expensive version, (the boss wanted to try the less expensive version to see how it worked before he buys several more for the rest of the office. With that being said, that is why I would not recommend this for a friend to purchase. Spend the extra money and get a more user friendly headset.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing comfort! I've been wearing this headset now for 5 days Straight 16 Hours a Day and with Miñor adjustments here and there I'm perfectly fine with wearing this piece for years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great We have these at work. At first I did believe it fit rather loose, after messing around with it, I did then realize you can fold the ear loop so that it fits more tightly. Just be careful not to fold the top of the ear loop as it is the slimmest and most fragile part. I do wish that part was stronger as both my ear loops have broken in the same spot (not due to folding). Besides that it is great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I have been using this model for about 3 months and love how comfortable it is on my ear.
    Date published: 2015-04-28
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as the TriStar H81 We've used the TriStar H81 at my office for over 20 years. I guess they no longer make them so the closest thing was the EncorePro 530. This thing wiggles and is not stable on the ear. I'm constantly having to hold the mouthpiece to keep it from wiggling which makes it hard to type and talk. We're stuck with them now but I hate it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good headset with unforgivable design flaws I want to like this headset. Sound comes through clear. Voice goes out clear. It WANTS to be a good headset. I hate to wax poetic about the Mirage headset that this replaced, but it just worked. These function, but my experience (shared below) makes it really seem like a downgrade in quality. There is at least 1 serious design flaw. I have bought 20+ for the company I work for and (not exaggerating) probably 80% of them have broke in the exact same place within 3 months. At first I thought it was a rough end-user. Then it happened to me. Then it happened to another person and another. Just through the normal day-to-day operation of the headset. The weak point is a thin piece of plastic that connects the rubber earpiece to the plastic part that connects to the headset itself. I can give the user a replacement part. The problem is it just breaks in another couple of months. I've resorted to super-glueing them back together, which seems to be holding up longer than the actual parts.
    Date published: 2018-09-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good headset overall. Had to be replaced when the Quick Disconnect connector wore out after about 10 months of use in a call center, however (little/poor/no sound came through).
