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!

The catalogue fails to mention or show that the boom mike and headset used a double plugin. There was no picture and no mention of the double plug, only that "it" fit a 3.5mm device. I wanted it for my iPhone. It is useless to me and not worth sending back.

Compact and well designed!

By 

from Allen, TX

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

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.

Didn't realize it had two plugs but...

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

I purchased this recently and learned something quite useful while experimenting. The mic works if you only plug in the headphones cord. My laptop as far as I can tell doesn't have two spaces but I actually didn't need them and with the mic cord plugged in I could be heard but I couldn't hear anyone. I found that the mic was perfectly functional without that particular plug plugged in though.

how can noise cancelling feature work?

By 

from New York

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

Before I bought this I've seen reviews that it really has noise cancelling feature but I am still hearing background sound of my aircon, stand fan and sounds from our tv. Do i need to set up for the noise cancelling feature work?

Great and Reasonably Priced Product!

By 

from Singapore

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

But the wire always entangled and sponge quality can be improved; easier torn. In addition, without the sponge, the sound quality is much compromised.

Excellent for Work and Play!!!!

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

I have had the headset for almost a month now and it has been just awesome. It is lightweight to the point where I sometimes forget I am wearing it. It has let me connect with friends and family all over the world via Skype, and they tell me the quality of the sound through the mic is very clear and crisp. Listening to music is also a pleasure with this headset and the inline volume control is a bonus. On the Work side I can use it for Skype calls and conferences. It also works fantastically with my voice recognition software and the "Hey Cortana" feature in Windows 10. This being a new technology I had some fears that this product may not make the grade, but it has worked flawlessly since the first time I plugged it in. I would recommend this headset to anyone, for any use you may be thinking of using it. I don't think you will be disappointed. I know I wasn't!!!

Great Headset for its Value (while it lasted)

By 

from Florida, United States

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

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.

Good microphone, can use for hours

By 

from Stockholm, Sweden

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

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.

controls don't work

By 

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

I purchased 2 and the inline controls didn't work on either. Since they were purchased for the sole use of internet calling I was disappointed. Mute is very important during my conference calls.

Great value

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

Great stereo sound. Mic is pretty sensitive. Was a little snug at first but I stretched it by bending the earpieces far apart for a few seconds and now the fit is just right. I wish the mic boom was a little longer.

Good thing I got this for sale.

By

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

Not a bad headset for sale price [$10]. But if this were full priced, it would be just an OK product.

Decent but want more

By 

from Oregon

Comments about Plantronics Audio 478 Binaural Over-the-Head Corded Headset:

Lightweight and simple it lacks any kind of comfort. The band that goes over the head 'pulls' the earphones too tight against the ears.
