Sennheiser PC 36 USB
Advantages: Practical, easy to use, good sound quality
Disadvantages: Could look better, the new price is a tad expensive
With Skype becoming ever popular I decided it was time to jump on the wagon and get Skype. I have used it several times at home and have to admit it is pretty cool, especially when using it to call people abroad and can even be used on smart phones. Anyway....we recently created an account at work so we could save costs when calling some colleagues abroad and hence the purchase of the Sennheiser PC36 Headset.
We ordered the headset from Amazon for £26.00 with free delivery, which I thought was a bargain, especially considering Senheiser is such a great brand. Having just checked now on Amazon I can see the headset has almost doubled in price to £49, so feel pretty happy with the price I managed to get it for. The headphones cam promptly and were well packaged. Upon opening the package you can see there is an installation disk, some leaflets and the headset itself. Being a bloke I didn't bother reading how to set anything up and just went right ahead and plugged it in, ignoring the disk an manuals. As it turns out the set up in surprisingly easy, as you would assume it should be, being advertised as a plug and play device. The set works well with Macs and PCs which is very handy and Apple can often be funny with hardware and software that isn't their own.
The first time the headset was used was for a Skype call and it worked brilliantly. The sound quality was great and the moth piece is well positioned. The set is light weight and comfortable to will be suitable for any long conversations. The head band can be adjusted to fit accordingly.
Whilst the headset works perfectly and is a practical device I don't believe it's the best looking on the market. It does not look expensive but I am not bother by the aesthetics, it's a practical tool rather than a fashion accessory (never mind the fact it will never be used outside the office)
Whilst I use the headset for Skype it can be used for a multitude of other functions, such as watching youtube videos or listening to music i.e. as a regular set of headphones. Whilst I have not tried it I also believe it can be used for gaming, allowing you to talk to other players.
After buying this product I will definitely look at Sennheiser again in the future for any new headphone purchases. I am very happy with the product and to top everything off it comes with a 2 year warranty, which will probably never be used but it's a nice thing to have and shows the companies confidence in their product. I would recommend this product, however I feel £50 is quite pricey for a product that has fairly limited uses.
Summary: Overall happy with the headset
