review of Headset
Customer Rating:
Not as comfortable as previous headset. Fit's awkwardly and mic piece has to be adjusted outwardly each time I put it on. Sound quality is great.

Customer Rating:
So far somewhat good. There is no background noise; we can hear the caller very well / clear but the person on the other end said it sounded like we are in a barrel. There are different dials I will try. Will let you know.

Thanks for the replacement..
Customer Rating:
I like the new headset. My only comment is the mouth piece is very close to my face. I am getting use to it. I appreacite you send me a replacement for my old model and the voice quality is excellent. Thanks for your help with my old one.

Comfortable and clear
Customer Rating:
This headset meets all my needs. The earpad is comfortable and the material is of higher quality than others I've used at this price range.
The clarity is great and I didn't need to use an amplifier with my phone (Avaya 9620).
And as always, brilliant service from 1-800-Headsets.ca

Like Plantronics Better
Customer Rating:
Our office has always used Plantronics and we were offered to try this instead. It's nice but it is very, very hard to hear people. Volume is on it's highest setting and still have a hard time hearing

Works great
Customer Rating:
This thing is a lifesaver at work!I prefer this to the style that covers both ears

Customer Rating:
The headsets have great sound, but they are not well fitting like our plantronics ones are.

Our phone set volume has to be in highest volume setting possible just to hear and be heard.

Works great
Customer Rating:

great headset
Customer Rating:
Purchased this headset for use in the home office. I've tried using several other lower quality headsets before and they were either uncomfortable or the call/sound quality was poor. This headset is by far the most comfortable I've used and the sound quality is excellent. The noise cancelling microphone works great; no more "You sound like you're in a can" comments. The customer service at Headsets.com is excellent. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Clear, Light and Comfortable
Customer Rating:
We are not high volume headset users but my wife has been able to use the Sennheiser headset around the house making her able to get things done while on the phone to verbose friends! She thinks it's great and comfortable enough that she hardly notices she is wearing it.

Our Call Center loves them!
Customer Rating:
We tried one of these in the call center and the difference was immediately noticeable!
The employee who gave it a test drive couldn't believe how much more clear and crisp the sound was,and the customers seemed to be able to hear her clearer (never asking to repeat)! Pretty soon the whole call center was asking for one of these headsets and we started switching them over, I think we have ordered an additional 20 for our office.
The only issue we have had is with 2 of the guys who happen to have larger than average head sizes- they complained that the headsets were a little too snug.

DeskMate HSC 230 Corded Telephone Headset Review
Customer Rating:
The DeskMate HSC 230 Corded Telephone Headset from Sennheiser is the most comfortable headgear I’ve ever worn.

I’m an administrative assistant, and I use the phone frequently, but typically for short calls. Usually over-the-head style pieces give me a headache because they’re constrictive. The shape of this one fits my head correctly so that it doesn’t hurt. It has a quick release button so that if you wanted to get up without removing the headset you can easily do that, but I rarely use this feature. A feature that I have never used is the shirt clip. I don’t keep my headset on when I’m not on the phone, so I don’t need to clip the cord anywhere. Overall, for a wired headset, it is fantastic.

Customer Rating:
* Doesn't feel sturdy on head, it feels too wide and just doesn't fit.
* Ear cover "feels" good but you can't hear well out of it.
* Speaker is good, everyone can hear us well.
* Love cord connector.

My thoughts on the DeskMate® HSC 230
Customer Rating:
What a great, great product...Enough Said!!!! I use it everyday for my "work from home" position!!!

Great For Call Center Stationary Position
Customer Rating:
This headset is great for stationary positions. Working in a retail position myself, that requires lots of movement, I have become much to accustom to wireless headsets and find it impossible to go back.

Customer Rating:
Would prefer it to be cordless. The sound quality is clear. Would be nice if it was offered in an over-the-ear option.

Crisp quality, great value
Customer Rating:
Does the job handily - comfortable to wear, seems to almost disappear when you're using it. The quick-release is nice on the cable to be able to get up and move around without fully removing the headset.

Very nice headset
Customer Rating:
I was on the on the fence about getting a new headset as my old one worked fine (just a bit worn.) I was really surprised by how much better this one sounded. So glad I ordered it!

Excellent Upgrade
Customer Rating:
I just upgraded from my old Jabra headset. Who needs a clunky old voice tube? My customers could hear everything going on around me - not anymore. The deskmate is awesome!
