    My existing headset looks just like a Plantronics audio 650 USB, but I don’t have the USB dongle for it. I have used it with Skype and to narrate online tutorial videos. When I purchased Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10, I wanted to increase my accuracy so I purchased this noise-canceling Sennheiser microphone.

    Out-of-the-box looked and felt great. The EQ is a bit odd, like other Sennheiser headsets I’ve owned in the past; I like it though, because it makes rock music sound great.

    Unlike my Plantronics headset, the ear muffs are foam and let my ears “breathe” a little, which keeps them from getting too hot. It is also very comfortable even though I wear it for hours at a time.

    The microphone is a completely different story. My voice sounds tinny and the microphone picks up WAY more background noise. It doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of difference with Dragon, but it is definitely worse for Skype, and there’s no way I can use it to narrate videos.

    I like the Sennheiser sound, but this headset is not at all acceptable as a noise-canceling mic. I am disappointed because I basically wasted my money. Considering that the Sennheiser mic costs about 50% more than my Plantronics, I’m a little disgusted at the outcome.

    My husband wanted this headset after reading reviews from other customers. He uses it with his laptop when he makes his long distance calls using Skype. He has some hearing loss, but with this headset, he can hear everyone clearly! Other people say that he sounds clear, too! When he listens to music on his boombox, he hears things he never heard before with his old headset. He says they are very comfortable and loves them! I ordered a pair for myself after trying them! My husband wants to order one of the Sennheiser wireless headsets next. We would recommend them highly! Sennheiser PC151 Over The Head Headset with Noise Cancelling Mic and In-line Volume Control

    I own three sets of Sennheiser Earphones, two for my ipod, This model replaced a Logitech pair(the wire on the Logitech broke) that I use primarily for Skype. I highly recommend the PC151 for the comfort, they are very lightweight and don’t begin to feel heavy after a long hours of use, their incredible sound quality and the fact that it has an adjustible volume control on the cord. These are worth the extra expense. Works great on a MacBook Pro too!
