Short Cable

These work great but the only downside is the cable is too short for use in production. Be nice if it was 4-6 inches longer.

The system is totally reliable as it is compatible.

Pretty good product, especially for the price point

First the negatives. - The product at first glance looks and feels kind of cheap but for the price point you get what you pay for. - The plastic is light weight which is good for comfort but it just feels kind of flimsy and I don't expect it to last more than a year or two after using it everyday. But like I said before, for the price, its actually kind of a steal. - There are 5 pins on this headset, but the 5th pin actually doesn't connect to anything. So I had to solder a bridge between the 4th and 5th pin in order to hear program audio being fed from the camera. Not the biggest deal, but since its advertised as 5 pins it would be nice for all 5 pins to be connected and function. - The microphone arm isn't as sturdy as I would expect from a new product, I anticipate that losing its strength fairly quickly. The Good - The price, I've said it before but this is a steal compared to comparable products. - The comfort, this headset is light weight and pretty comfortable around the ears and neck. I start feeling my ears get pinched after a few hours of wearing it. It could have a little more space where the ear phone and the neckband connect, but all and all its way more comfortable than any other work headsets I have used. It isn't as comfortable as my music headset, but it also has a lot more function. - The style, I love the look of the headset. The mic and mic screen could afford to be smaller and more sleek but all and all this thing looks better than a traditional headset. All and all I am very happy with this purchase despite needing to make some soldering adjustments. The price and style make all of the negatives worth while. I would consider buying this product again in the future. I would even spend more if it made the improvements that I suggested.

Much better quality.

This headset is way more robust. It's a little heavier but you get used to it. I'd definitely buy another one.
