I'm a telecommuter and spend much of my day on Skype. I tried several more expensive headsets and was never satisfied. Finally I asked a coworker what headset she used, because in every conference call she sound more clear than anyone else. It was a C320-M. I bought one and it was hands-down the best headset I have used. I can hear people and understand them, and they can hear and understand me.

Setup is simple, plug it in and everything is working.  The audio quality is ok.  Volume is low, my ancient headphones have better sound, and when the microphone is on, if my breathing isn't silent I can hear it. The biggest problem is the mute notification that cannot be disabled.  Every 15 minutes, there is a loud beep (louder than anything I'm listening to) reminding me that my microphone is muted.  It is totally unnecessary (there is a red light on the unit showing mute, an icon in my application showing I'm muted, a light on my laptop showing I'm muted, and I'm no longer able to hear my own breathing) and extremely distracting when I'm in a conference call. After multiple calls to support, I have determined that Plantronics considers this problem to be a feature, and provides no way to disable it.  The Spokes software will recognize the headset, but there are no device settings for it.  Until this is corrected, I highly recommend choosing a different headset.

Clear sounding, comfortable headset

By Ewinch3

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C320 USB Headset:

I've been using for one month and I really like the clear sound and the comfort this headset provides. I sit at my desk most of the day for work, so the wire is the perfect length too.

Ok sound, w/sensitive microphone - when it works.

By Sithspawn

from San Ramon, CA, United States

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C320 USB Headset:

Was issued one of these to use at work with Skype for Business. The microphone kept indicating that it wasn't working. People would NOT hear my voice until I clicked the toggle switch for the microphone off & on. I would NOT recommend purchasing one of these, EVER.

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C320 USB Headset:

I had tried another headset through Nuance but it never was able to translate my voice into Dragon for Mac. Your product worked perfectly right out of the box.

Yeah.

By Mino

from Undisclosed

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C320 USB Headset:

All righty, I bought these headphones 320-M. I saw some negative reviews on it, but I decided to give it a chance. With a little bit of background tweaking in the audio department/section of my computer, they sound like HD headphones. The headset is soft, it doesn't over heat, the microphone is a little fuzzy, other than that they are good headphones.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
