I love this set, only got it a few weeks ago. The extra Skype functions on the wired controller buttons to pick up and hang up a call are cool and partly why I got this. BUT a few days ago going on Skype I got an alert that this would fail to work soon. Clicking the Why? button took my browser to a Skype page explaining they will cease supporting the "Desktop API" in favor of some broader API that will still (only) allow talk but do better with mobile pads and phones. BAH HUMBUG!

The catalogue fails to mention or show that the boom mike and headset used a double plugin. There was no picture and no mention of the double plug, only that "it" fit a 3.5mm device. I wanted it for my iPhone. It is useless to me and not worth sending back.

Compact and well designed!

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

I have purchased several of these for different uses. It has many useful features on the connecting cable that are beneficial. The microphone and Skype feature is very useful especially while studying languages or music.

Didn't realize it had two plugs but...

By Lucca14

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

I purchased this recently and learned something quite useful while experimenting. The mic works if you only plug in the headphones cord. My laptop as far as I can tell doesn't have two spaces but I actually didn't need them and with the mic cord plugged in I could be heard but I couldn't hear anyone. I found that the mic was perfectly functional without that particular plug plugged in though.

Great and Reasonably Priced Product!

By Anonymous

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

But the wire always entangled and sponge quality can be improved; easier torn. In addition, without the sponge, the sound quality is much compromised.

Great Headset for its Value (while it lasted)

By Setolo

from Florida, United States

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

I bought my Plantronics - .Audio 478 around a year ago, just today one of the wires came out and one of the speakers doesn't work anymore. However, from the experience I've had with this headset I'd say it's an amazing product for its value. The headset has pretty high quality audio so I was able to listen to music while playing my games. The microphone is amazing, too. I used it for a lot of YouTube videos and it works great, high quality too. It has noise cancellation too, which is a plus. The Earphones are great, but it took a while to get used to. Folding made it real simple to take from place to place. Mine even came with a bag, not sure if this one does.

Good microphone, can use for hours

By ErikPh

from Stockholm, Sweden

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

The microphone records my voice and transmits it to my listener in a good way, isolating back ground noise. Earphones are good - just wish my colleagues had as good headsets as me. Good that they are easily fold-able, with the sound control on the wire. Has worked right away with two different computers. Lastly, the open headphones makes it possible to use the headphones for long business meetings without experiencing them becoming humid.
