    Plantronics 478 reviews

    Audio 478 Folding USB Headset is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headset for its Value (while it lasted) I bought my Plantronics - .Audio 478 around a year ago, just today one of the wires came out and one of the speakers doesn't work anymore. However, from the experience I've had with this headset I'd say it's an amazing product for its value. The headset has pretty high quality audio so I was able to listen to music while playing my games. The microphone is amazing, too. I used it for a lot of YouTube videos and it works great, high quality too. It has noise cancellation too, which is a plus. The Earphones are great, but it took a while to get used to. Folding made it real simple to take from place to place. Mine even came with a bag, not sure if this one does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skype says extra Skype functions will fail soon I love this set, only got it a few weeks ago. The extra Skype functions on the wired controller buttons to pick up and hang up a call are cool and partly why I got this. BUT a few days ago going on Skype I got an alert that this would fail to work soon. Clicking the Why? button took my browser to a Skype page explaining they will cease supporting the "Desktop API" in favor of some broader API that will still (only) allow talk but do better with mobile pads and phones. BAH HUMBUG!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Installed on a Mac OSX 10.12.4 (Sierra) Stuttering This should be an easy USB connect and go - Mac OSX is in the 12th release and very popular. The Plantronics 478 is stuttering and looks to have an audio driver problem with the USB.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good microphone, can use for hours The microphone records my voice and transmits it to my listener in a good way, isolating back ground noise. Earphones are good - just wish my colleagues had as good headsets as me. Good that they are easily fold-able, with the sound control on the wire. Has worked right away with two different computers. Lastly, the open headphones makes it possible to use the headphones for long business meetings without experiencing them becoming humid.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from cushion damage after 1 year Hi, is there a replacement ear cushion I can purchase to replace the existing one used on Audio 478? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well Enough. Purchased for Skype conference calls to isolate and cancel ambient noise. They seem to work well enough, sound quality similar to Logitech models. All plastic construction and the folding capability will need to be tested with time and use. The inline volume and mute controls are larger than needed but easy and useful. Completely plug-n-play on a MacBook Pro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value! My company provided me with a set of Audio 478s for use at work. I enjoyed the quality so much I bought a set so I could take meetings from my home office. When I saw B&H's price I could believe it. Best headset I've ever used for work. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and well designed! I have purchased several of these for different uses. It has many useful features on the connecting cable that are beneficial. The microphone and Skype feature is very useful especially while studying languages or music.
