I bought a Tristar H81N for work. I'm a 9-1-1 dispatcher and leave my desk often to do GIS mapping. This headset allows me to move freely through the room and answer my calls as needed. The sound is clear, it looks good, and is less stress on my neck than the handsets I used to use. I only wish it had a nice storage container to go with it.

I much preferred the inner ear positioning of this product compared to others I've used in the past; HOWEVER, the over-the-ear design of this product doesn't stay put. Also, if you wear glasses, be prepared for your ear to protrude and your entire ear to ache after a few hours of wearing.

Good Product Overall

By StaceyAme

Comments about Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset:

Good fit. Clear sound... until the tip near the voice tube breaks and dangles from the connecting wires. Lasted 1 1/2years. Has a 2 year warranty so let's hope I get a new one mailed to me soon!

A job well done

By ZMA_R21

Comments about Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset:

As an Air Traffic Manager, Plantronics headsets are what we use in the labs for simulations. The TriStar is much more comfortable and clarity is never an issue. I'm able to wear it for long periods of time without any issue, which is always nice.

Good headset for the most part

By Willo98

from MN, United States

Comments about Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset:

I am a 911 dispatcher and this headset does the job, except I have little ears and it falls off my ear quite easily if I move around too quickly and I've gone through two headsets in the last couple of years because of always trying to adjust the ear piece in my ear to keep the whole thing from falling off my head which in turn has cracked the plastic piece and is no longer usable. I will use this one rather than a different style that pushes on my ear as those seem to hurt my ear after a few good hours into a shift. I'll just keep waiting for newer designs to come out and see if they've made them any better for smaller ears like mine.

Solid & reliable

By tkinstl

from St. Louis, MO, United States

Comments about Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset:

I've used this set up for over 10 years. The first one wore out about five years ago and, thanks to my continual adjustments, dropping on the floor, and closing it in my desk drawer, my current one finally wore out. I bought the same thing again because it's durable enough to last for five years of my use and abuse. Sound quality is great, it's comfortable to wear all day, and I don't have to charge it or rely on flukey bluetooth connections.

I wont give this thing up!!

By ggpur

from Austin, TX, United States

Comments about Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset:

I've had this headset for about eight years and I won't give it up! I've taken it with me to three different jobs ranging from 6+ hours a day on the phone to 1-2 calls a week. Always a pleasure to wear. I've got an amplifier box and a DA40 USB cable so I can move between a phone or computer using the QD connector. I just made a call with the USB and my MBP, now listening to music through the headset. Love it!

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.
