I bought this product a couple of weeks ago to work remotely from my home office. I previously tried a cheaper headset but I sounded like I was in a cave and ofter client's had a hard time hearing me. The quality of the Plantronics headset is superior. They are so comfortable that I forget I have them on. I also have a wireless version at my physical office which made me want to stick with Plantronics for my home office.

Sound quality for phone is great, but for doubling as stereo headphones, find another product with a microphone. Even ear buds with a mic are just as good. The only good is the microphone, which filters  additional noises. If it's for a phone, get the 1-sided Blackwire 510. If you want good sound, any home headset is better (including cheaper ear buds).

These are uncomfortable if you want to use only 1 side. Also, too much pressure for a normal size head.

Not good for gaming

By Travis Dickens

from Lubbock, TX, United States

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

I really like he simple design and it has a great microphone. However, the sound quality always sounds like I'm in a or something. All the audio sound distorted and far away which is very bad for music, videos, gaming, etc.

Sound quality is great, headband is uncomfortable

By Lacy

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

I have two of these, a 520 and a 700 series. I like the quality of the sound, it's great for music, webinars and calls. However, the headband seems to have been designed for Frankenstein. When stretched on, the top becomes flat and puts pressure on the top of my head. For all day wear, that can become painful, in spite of the padding.

What happened..?

By FoShoBear

from Gothenburg, Sweden

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

What happened? If this is the successor to C420 Plantronics really messed up. Build quality has gone down, now cheaper plastic is used and it shows, even the metal parts have been replaced with cheap plastic. I'm on my 2nd pair in only 2 months. The old C420 lasted me 4(!) years. Sound quality is horrible in comparison. I'm not joking when i say these sound like a pair of really cheap iphone ear plugs, where as the c420's were excellent for talk and media consumption. I would even go as far as saying the C420s were close to Koss Porta Pro's after a few hours of burn in time. The C520 are absolutely horrible for any media consumption, forget music. The sound is flat and boring, no characteristics at all and the music disappears into a broken sounding screech. The comfort is also worse, these are more stiff and has a tighter angle which makes them press really hard on your head. The C420 were excellent in this regard and you could keep them on for 8 hours straight, I cant do 8 minutes in these. Ive used the C420 over 4 years until they broke, sadly the c420 is no longer made and I now have to stick with these. Im not exaggerating, i'm very disappointed in these "premium" headphones. Make the 420 again!

Leatherette ear cushions disintegrate

By DC14

from Asia

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

The headset works well but the leatherette ear cushions disintegrate and cannot be replaced. Why can't headsets be manufactured so the cushions can be replaced as they always wear out well before the electronics.

Nice looking but sound... I would expect more.

By Erestes

from BYD / PL

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

Very compact and nice looking... but Sound is far below what I would expect, voice is having to high frequencies and completly lacking the low range which irritates me and I cannot withstand it. Music... if you plan listening to music then go for something else - completly not for this.

I can hear you ..

By leelee

from Missouri, United States

Comments about Plantronics Blackwire C510 Headset:

I use this model for work at home. I can hear my customers clearly and they can not tell that I'm working from home or I'm in the office. The headset is comfortable- does not pinch. I like the easy mute feature.

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.
