Headset for Debra Kerth
Very comfortable and great customer service. I was a 911 dispatcher for 25 years and used your headsets. I depend on your company for a good price and a quality product.

Thanks for the replacement..
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
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

Crisp quality, great value
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.

Great headset, you can feel and hear the quality
We ordered a bunch of these headsets for our sales staff. Just picking them up out of the box you can feel a major difference between these and our old headsets. They are heavier, and the quality feels much, much better. The sound quality is great both ways. The headsets are comfortable, and they feel like they are durable - time will tell.

The headset is fine. It is used by my staff person who handles the main switchboard and reception duties. She says it is working great. Thank you.

We liked the snuggness of it and could hear customers better. However the customers still complained they could hear much background noise. Also we did not like that we would need to buy new connector chords. This brings the cost up past what we are paying now. We do like the warrenty.

Good quality sound with one big problem...
this thing gets caught in my hair. I dont mean like once and awhile... ALL THE TIME. So if you have short hair, this will work great. I also am not a huge fan of the swivel mouth piece... its not flexible, it only swivels up and down... I must have a weird shaped head, so it's not really working for me.

review of Headset
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.

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.

Like Plantronics Better
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
This thing is a lifesaver at work!I prefer this to the style that covers both ears

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

Works great

great headset
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
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!
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
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.

* 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
What a great, great product...Enough Said!!!! I use it everyday for my "work from home" position!!!

Great For Call Center Stationary Position
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.

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

Works just fine
The headset works just fine. I have no complaints about the quality of the sound and have had no comments from anyone that I have used it with.

Very nice headset
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
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!
