    Plantronics 648 reviews

    .Audio 648 - Stereo USB Headset is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, but... I think the sound of both the speakers and mic (not tinny like most mics) are great. However there is a slight delay in response time. I tried a 2.0 port, but it's the same delay. But I'm not sure if this is common with all USB mics as this is my first non-jack mic. Another thing is after a few days I started getting unexplained static. It disappeared, but then came back. I checked the wires and all seem like they're tightly connected and there are no kinks or tearing near the wire connections. I plugged it back in today and it seems fine again, but I think I'm going to exchange it anyway. I love Plantronics brand, and I think this was just a fluke. I've never had any problems with them for my phone products, so I'll try a simple exchange and see how that goes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound anf mic! I'm "fresh" owner of this headset. This is my first headset of Plantronics, but I'm very satisfied with it. Very good mic sensitivity and clear sound, good sound quality of sound. I use it daily in my work (3-4 hours on head), and I even don't know, that its on my head. I wear glasses, and sometimes i have problem with glasses and headsets, but not with this one! Thanks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Audio. Headset and mic boom are too small. The over the ear setup is very unusable while wearing glasses.  However, audio quality is very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have exactly thesame plantronics brand, I don't have any problems with it so far yet I am having a hard time how to make the noise cancelling work because I can still hear loud background noises when I tried testing it. I have an online job and so i prefer to chose this brand because for me this brand is trusted. But now I am thinking if it's because I don't know how to make the noise cancelling work or its my plantronics headset not working as I expect it to be

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Small I like the sound and operation, but if I knew how small it was I would have selected a different product. I have a small head and this hurts to wear.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange signal processing, but works. I use this to Skype with my girlfriend, she got an identical one. The answer button on the cord doesn't seem to work but that's kinda pointless anyway. The sound quality is infinitely better than our laptop mics can provide. However, when I switch from Skype to Youtube to watch a video together the audio instantly becomes garbled and unintelligible and I'm forced to either reconnect the headphones or quit Youtube or Skype. The headphones aren't very comfortable if worn for longer than an hour. Not sure if it was worth the $ I spent on it, but it gets the job done.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from OK. But still noisy. Usually Plantronis are my favourite headsets, reason, why I went for the 648 headset. But in this case, the product doesn't convince me. Reasons: it doesn't fit well on the ears; the frame-bar is squeezing the ears against the head. And after several hours (Skypecalls) the ears might start hurting. Noise reduction doesn't seem to work neither: when I check the audio-quality on Skype, I can hear myself, but the noise level is high to very high. Also during confcalls with several participants, I can clearly see the blue line underneath my picture, indicating that the registered audio from my side is high, even though I don't speak at all: the noise level is higher than the Skype's threshold. Also the software isn't brill: the only program is the Plantronics hub, and under settings there's "There are no available device-specific settings in this category." and full stop - so one can ask, for what do we need this software? There are better choices.
