I am on conference calls all day and i was looking for a headset that was comfortable. I came across this unusual design, read the reviews and decided to give it a try. It took a little getting used to but now i don't even know its on. The audio is excellent especially on VOIP and I love the USB adapter they give you to use too! The only issue i just recently experienced is the rubber surrounding the speaker is peeling off. I submitted an inquiry on their website. Let's see how good their customer service is! : ))

Kind of a one size fits all, should have more ergonomic features to adjust depending on people's earlobe =). The sound is not too good either, sounds cheap and robotic. Also want to mention that it is only for your Left ear.

Excellent audio

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I purchased this headset and USB interface 6 years ago. It still works great. It's light, comfortable (I love the under-the-ear fitment), and easy to set up. The only problem I've had was that the microphone tube broke (result of cramming it into my backpack). It was easily fixed with adhesive tape.

Love it - so light and comfortable

By 

from Warminster PA

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

The directions that came with the product are worthless. However I was able to watch a video online to see how to adjust and fit the product on my ear. It is so comfortable, you hardly know you are wearing it. I absolutely love it!

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I am happy with the device but I am still getting used to the under ear concept versus the over ear. The quality of the sound is awesome and people on the other end of the phone also have told me the quality is great.

Not a Skype Tin Can

By 

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I have been through several headsets that each had their own problems from souding like I was talking in a tin can to having to yell to be heard. This is the first headset I found that had none of these problems. Clear, strong. One star off for the short cord.

Great sound quality

By 

from Germany

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I bought it and loved it. Excellent sound quality, durability and fits comfortably in the ear. I used it with the speech recognition from Windows 7 and after a bit training, I could dictate with 95% recognition accuracy. It delivers excellent value and quality.

Awesome Sound Quality

By 

from Michigan

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

Love the MX500i sound quality. Perfect for the phone or Skype conversations. The Flex-Grip does not fit as tight after two years and the ear piece is uncomfortable at times. I am searching for a replacement.

First impressions

By 

from Canada

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I am a gamer but more importantly a dad so I needed to find a single ear option (keeping one ear open for family). What I found was good but others are telling me that they hear a hum coming across when I speak. Is this something I can fix? I found turning off the mic volume thru software makes the sound less faint but never makes it go away.

Works Well for Gaming

By 

from Vancouver

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I needed a headset for computer gaming voice chat. This one works well, is comfortable, and is fine with eyeglasses. Sound is a little tinny.

Owned my Headset 5 years with No Problems

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

It is a pleasure to use and worth every penny (I paid about $100 5 years back). Buy it and enjoy.

Great product but not durable

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I love the product and the clarify. The only concern is, after 6 months of use, the piece that fits into the ear became "loose" and shortly after I could not be heard. It is a great product so I am ordering another since I have not found a better product yet.

Very good earset

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

Works well and the sound quality is very good. A little difficult to put on quickly when the phone rings though.

works well

By 

from Alabama

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

I bought this thinking it would work in a high noise environment (sawmill). It doesn't. However, as a hands free earpiece, it works very well. Stays put,I like the corded earpieces because I am less likely to loose them. Fits both ears. Nice and light. No 5 stars because I was led to believe it was active noise cancelling

Good but fragile

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

The USB feature worked well and the headset worked on both ears with little or no discomfort in all day office use. I never traveled with the headset but note that it is falling apart with very little force ever having been placed upon it. A stronger version would be good. In VC calls it is unobtrusive.

Cheap Quality for Cheap People

Love this headset!!

By 

from NJ

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

GREAT sound quality - on both ends. Have had numerous people ask me "Are you on a headset?" because they cannot tell. The sound quality is just so good. Surprisingly comfortable - wasn't sure because it's such an unusual design, but once I have it on, I really do forget it is there. Super, super product.

I love this product

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about Plantronics MX500i Earset:

It is great for outdoor use. It has excellent wind resistance. I work outdoors and need to converse on the phone. Its design fits comfortable under the ear and holds in place. The boom has a wind resistant sponge so you can be heard clearly on windy days. Plantronics makes the best hands free devices I have used.
