I purchased this device for my father, who is a sales rep and truck driver for a potato chip company. He really needs the freedom to use his hands without having to hold a phone. This product seemed the best choice for the following reasons:1. Value - It was[$] and was well made.2. Easy to Use - Having the Send/End button on the actual headset enables him to stuff the cord in his shirt so it can't snag things with it but still has access to the buttons unlike headsets with the mic on the cord.3. Corded - He preferred corded for two reasons. One, no need to worry about battery life. Two, no need to worry about radioactive waves going into the brain. Unlike bluetooth headsets which give off radiowaves just like a cell phone, corded headsets do not act as a transmitter so its safer.(I don't worry about such things but at his age he worries about everything.)I only have two problems with the device and they are minor. One, a very small mute switch. Two, effective noise cancellation. This may seem like a good thing, because a sensitive microphone in order to be practical must filter out the backround noise. But my father is not a loud individual, and since the mic is not a long boom mic, he can't simply speak at a comfortable tone. He has to be reminded by persons on the other line to constantly speak up. The side effect has been that even when he is not on the phone, he stills shouts for no good reason. Thanks Jabra! Overall an excellent product despite some minor issues.

I was excited about this product when I bought it. The earpiece was wonderfully comfortable. However, the microphone was useful only if I was in a quiet location. Road noise, wind, or any background noise garbled what I was saying, and my voice was unintelligible to the other person.

Voice transmission issue

By StaplesBuyer

Comments about Jabra Wave C500 Corded Headset:

Product fits well in the ear although if you want to change ears during a conversation, you need to swivel the earbud 180 degrees because it is not round in shape. Voices are easily heard in the earpiece.

The problem with this headset is that listeners say my voice sounds faint. I removed the foam 'wind sock' at the end of the microphone, but that did not seem to make any difference. Since there is no volume control on the cord, there is no way to increase speaking volume.

The microphone boom is short (nice, in that it does not get near the mouth) but this might contribute to not picking up my voice very well. The headset I was using before had a lengthier boom microphone so it was close to my mouth, and the boom's position could be adjusted.

I may end up returning this headset.

Great little headset

Comments about Jabra Wave C500 Corded Headset:

This is the second of these headsets I've bought, the first finally wearing out after several years. I like that Staples still stocks wired sets as I am not a fan of the bluetooth for extended conversations. The new, lower price made it an even better deal.

Not bad for the Price

Comments about Jabra Wave C500 Corded Headset:

This Headset worked great out of the box. It is sometimes muffled and that may be due to phone service and location of the phone. Over I am happy to be hands free and at the price I think it was a pretty good buy.

Jabra Headset

By Auriel

from San Luis Obispo

Verified Buyer

Comments about Jabra Wave C500 Corded Headset:

This headset is okay, because of the price. I just needed something economical to use in the car. The wire is awkward, and gets in the way - so it is worth more money to buy a cordless. The little microphone foam 'wind' noise reducer is cute, but won't stay on long enough for me to see if it helps any, when outside. Works fine for what I need it for.
