This is the second time I have bought this model. I used the first one for two about years. Near the end of first year the halves of the ear-speaker housing came apart and I super-glued them together.. I did this maybe 4 times over the next year plus. Finally it seems the mic gave out. I bought a less expensive replacement (GE) and people on the other end complained about the sound quality. I went back and bought this one again. The only complaint I ever heard about this unit was that the sound was two loud, but it has two-position switch for mic sensitivity so I just used the lower setting. I costs a bit mor than other (even less) compact low-end units, but at the prce range involved, it is not worth worrying about.

People to whom I was talking said they had a hard time hearing me even when I had the microphone turned all the way up. It was very comfortable to wear and I could hear just fine, even during conferences.

Two-line Cordless Headset

By AuntRoe

Comments about Plantronics MX500C Headset for Cordless Telephones:

It's the only headset I'll ever use. First of all, I forget it's even on my ear most of the time. The quality of sound is excellent. There aren't that many headsets out there that will accommodate a two-line phone, but this one does. It even has volume & mute controls on its cord, which I find to be a nice touch. I use it all the time in my home-based business & it lasts about 1-2 years. It's well worth the money.

Doesn't Work With iPhone 5 tho

By Hesalroad

Comments about Plantronics MX500C Headset for Cordless Telephones:

I bought this item intending to use it with my iPhone. A line of text on the box said it works with "most" mobile phones. I ended up using it on a cordless phone and it performed beautifully. So, I can't knock the product, but I wish the packaging had been done in a way that lets the buyer know which mobile phones it can be used with.

Very comfortable to wear and the clarity is spot on!

Clear As A Bell But Difficult To Wear

By Debi42k

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics MX500C Headset for Cordless Telephones:

The sound on this headset is great however, the designer was certainly not a woman! The earpiece is worn under the ear as opposed to looping over the ear so for all of us women out there who wear any kind of earings, other than studs, this makes putting on the earpiece quite a challenge. The headset itself is not cordless, and I purchased it for use with my desktop phone, not a cordless or cell phone. This being the case, I have to remove the headset everytime I need to get up. Even without an earring on, I find the earpiece awkward to put on and I usually have to look in a mirror to make sure I am doing it correctly. I will be returning this product, opting for a cordless, over the ear, headset instead. Sorry Plantronics but I think you should go back to the drawing board on this design.

best headset ever

Comments about Plantronics MX500C Headset for Cordless Telephones:

I, like many people, have owned a number of headsets. This is my favorite so far. It's a bit awkward at first to attach to the ear, but it doesn't mess up the hair because it grasps the ear from below. It has great sound quality, and I believe its light weight will give it a longer life since the cord usually wears out first. It can also be used on either the left or right ear.

Great Clarity & Comfort

By Connie

from Pennsylvania

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Plantronics MX500C Headset for Cordless Telephones:

After years of phone use contributing to arthritis in my neck, I've used headsets for the past couple of decades when working. I prefer over or under the ear more than over the head appliances.

As odd as it seems to get an under-the-ear headset, this is the most comfortable of any headset I've ever used. In fact, this is my third time to purchase this model. Yes, it's slightly more cumbersome to put on than an over-the-ear set which I can do with one hand. This model takes two hands and two seconds. I can live with that. If you also wear glasses, this is especially nice because wearing both is very easy.

Hearing and being heard are both quite clear. I like that you can push a button and not have to hold it when muting your call.

My only complaint is that the part that attaches the set to the ear bud is more delicate than it appears and is what breaks for me. If you are someone who keeps your headset on all day, this shouldn't be a problem,. i tend to take mine on and off a dozen or more times a day which puts more work/stress on that piece. if they could come up with a way to resolve this one issue, I would happily give this a five star. As it is, I like it enough to replace the product.
