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.

Installed on a Mac OSX 10.12.4 (Sierra) Stuttering

By JohnMPeters

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Plantronics .Audio 478 Headset:

This should be an easy USB connect and go - Mac OSX is in the 12th release and very popular. The Plantronics 478 is stuttering and looks to have an audio driver problem with the USB.

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.

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.
