i've been using this headset for a few hours now. all I can say is WOW. I think they made this thing out of air, it's so light. the 3 in 1 design offeres so many ways to use your headset. the mic is top notch as well, it's small, and keeps background noise down.

The headset comes with 3 different headset options, over-head, behind-head, over-ear. The over-ear adapter has the headset flopping around; the behind-head adapter has no adjustment; and the over-the head adapter is just uncomfortable, though light weight. The speaker part is too large to be an in-ear design and too small for sitting on your ear. The cord is very short (<3ft from earpiece to connector) allowing very little movement without pulling something off your desk. As for the sound quality, I've used many different headsets over the years, including those by Plantronics, Jabra, and GN Netcom in various models. The sound quality for the Plantronics ones are by far the worst overall, particularly this one.

EncorePro HW540 & AP15

By Shar

from Sturbridge, MA, United States

Comments about Plantronics HW540 EncorePro Convertible Headset:

I received the headset & AP15 adaptor in a timely manner. I love the clarity of the headset, however I don't like the fit of any of the (3) headsets they all seem to large, but I am making them work. It was easy to set up and I love having my hands free!! Overall a great product.

Comfortable All day use - High Quality Sound

By George65

Comments about Plantronics HW540 EncorePro Convertible Headset:

I bought this a year ago and have used it everyday. I talk on the phone all day as a telesales person. I tried all of the wearable options, over the ear, behind the neck, and headset. They were all comfortable, but I settled on the traditional headset after a few months of experimenting. It is so lightweight that I barely know I am wearing it. The sound quality is what you would expect from Plantronics, excellent! A few days ago my granddaughters came to visit (I work from home) and they got a little loud in the adjacent room. I had forgotten to close the office door before starting a conference call. While I could hear the noise, no one else could. The noise cancelation eliminated all of the background noise. You need to buy a cable to go from the Quick Disconnect (QD) connector to the phone you intend to use. I use my iphone. My only concern is that I have had to replace the cable from the QD to the iphone. However since I use this so much and connect and disconnect from my iphone multiple times each day, I figure i just wore it out. However the wire from the Hw540 to the QD has never given me any problems. I started out using my Plantronics Bluetooth behind the ear device. However I didi not want to have a radio transmitter next to my head for 40+ hours each week. i am very satisfied with HW540 and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to have a wired headset.

Comfort is not all the way there

Comments about Plantronics HW540 EncorePro Convertible Headset:

Just got this headset thru my employer. First: headset that I got was not working properly. Second: The sound quality is horrible So I had requested for a replacement and requires the customer to pay for shipping to send the defective device back.

Versatile!

Comments about Plantronics HW540 EncorePro Convertible Headset:

the option to have head, neck, or earpiece sets this apart from the others. Instead of buing a mix of headset types for my call center, I can simply order this one product nad give everyone the choice. The sound is great, too.

Love that you can wear this headset 3 different ways! I am on the phone with insurance companies for long periods of time and this headset is a great time saver.

not compatible

By MNSMUSA

from Miami, FL, United States

Comments about Plantronics HW540 EncorePro Convertible Headset:

I cannot rate the product be I just received because the headset it's not compatible with the phone (Polycom VVX400) even if in the website is indicated as compatible. The headphone jack is not compatible with the pone port. Was I supposed to purchase also an adaptator ? or it was supposed to cam in the box with the headset?
Thanks
