Does what it's supposed to do well
from Huntington Station NY
Comments about Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Headset:
I bought this to use with the VOXatc add-on to Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The program requires a good microphone for voice recognition. This works very well. Only complaint is the headset is a little tight for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good headset, some glitches
from Madison, WI
This is a good headset, although when I'm in TeamSpeak 3 and then launch ArmA II the headset will drop and reload, (USB disconnect noise on and off) and the only way to fix it is to set the Playback and capture in TS to the sound card on my computer and then load the game and then switch back to the headset in TS once the game is done loading. I cannot figure out why this headset does this and don't know if anyone else has this same issue.
from Saudi Arabia
This is not first headphone from logitech.I bought a year and half ago a Logitech H110 and its was working perfectly no problem but i think i use it little roughly thats why suddenly its one speaker stop working and after its mic may be strect of wire.I always watching my programme with those headphone and sleep while headphones on so its more possibilty of streching wire.The headphone are perfect i use it and compare with similar headphones but not similar with these.This is the reason when they damaged i again choose the same logitech but this time i bought USB and ifeel more comfortable and see how long this will work without rougly use and i will take care of it this time.
Comfort seriously lacking
from Colorado, USA
While the earpads on this model look cushiony and feel cushiony to finger touch, they are immediately as uncomfortable on my ears as the cheaper, foam-padded model is after hours of wear. Head fit is great. Sound quality is great. Comfort is extremely disappointing. For a model that costs twice the price, I would expect at least the same comfort as the cheaper model, not immediate discomfort. Nor does the discomfort level seem to be decreasing after a breaking-in period.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've been hearing how good USB headsets are recently and am very happy with getting this headset for christmas. Works perfectly on my Windows 7 desktop and my very old Windows XP laptop.

Fantastic...even after all I have put them through
I have owned mine for about 3 years now. They still produce great sound and I have never once had an issue with them as far as quality. I have thrown then across the room, sat on them, stepped on them, snapped them in half, and duct taped them back together. And they still work flawlessly. The audio range and frequencies are great for the price. I can play music in .flac and can barely notice a difference between them and professional grade audio sets. Cons: They do require a little setup and basic knowledge of hardware. Also the little clip on the inline controls will catch on my shirt or seat at times. It can be removed with ease though. Ultimately they are an amazing headset.

The microphone picks up every sound in the house possible. Even when settings are tweaked. Every noise. It is impossible to use this headset for anything useful. Every breath you take. Every cough, or sneeze. Every other noise on your person, like quietly scratching your leg, over a foot from the mic. Every voice in the room, and beyond, picking up others' talking. Everything. Absolutely everything. I asked for a headset to record singing, and have a headset for gaming both... But, it's not only impossible to use for the primary reason I wanted one, but I wouldn't use it for gaming either. No one wants to hear someone snoring in the next room, your cat meowing at their food dish, you farting, a door moving, or other random, and possibly embarrassing noises within a 100 yard radius of the mic. Mine have not broken in over a year. But, the mic is a useless piece of dung. I'm instead using the bad speakers on my mic. that don't match any possible speaker arrangement my computer offers (it has three speakers), and some really old, and cheap Sony microphones that were bought for a karaoke machine over a decade ago. I am absolutely not impressed with the modern speaker, and microphone technology I've seen. (Modern karaoke machines also sound horrible, as they seem to all have it in them to make bad singers sound good, and keep you from singing along with an original artist so you can't learn how to sing the song. But, that's another topic.) For the price, even the better sound quality of the headphones isn't worth it.

I've owned three of this model of headset before switching to the discontinued H530. Though the price is decent for a USB headset, there are some major design flaws in the way the cord and inline audio controls attach to the headset that prompted me to switch models. I have never had one of these models (the H390) last more than three months before something has gone wrong, and it has been the same for all three headsets. The main design flaw is in the cord between the headset and the inline volume controls; the cord itself is much thinner than the cord running between the control and the USB port, which makes it a lot more delicate to use. Even being as gentle as possible with the headset, this cord developed a short within three months, usually also developing a short elsewhere in the line. I had tried getting around this by securing the inline volume control to the side of the headset itself, but then you still have to deal with a three foot length of cord being in the way. The second design flaw is in the stiff clip on the back of the inline volume control itself; once that clip snaps off (which it will within a month if you are clipping it to any fabric), the extra weight pulling on the thin delicate cord will cause a short in the wire. Unfortunately, once the clip is gone, the full weight of the cord pulls on the headset, causing more problems with the thin wire. I have gotten past this at times by using an old ID-badge clip to fasten it to my shirt, but it is still awkward. The third design flaw again is centered on the thin wire, only now where it connects to the headset itself. If must take absolute care to never place pressure on that spot, lest the cord will form a short in that position as well as down at the inline volume control. In this case I had to loop the cord around the earpiece itself and secure it with tape; however, when the tape wore out, it fell, plus then the looped wire would often get stuck on my ear, entwined with my glasses, or the tape would get stuck in my hair. Also, though I had not noticed it as much as the first three problems, a fourth problem would be that any movement on the USB plug itself into the computer will cause the headset to reset itself. This has happened to me on every USB headset from Logitech, and I have tried them in numerous computers, both my own laptop and gaming rig, and in a university computer lab. Same thing happens - you touch it, the headset will usually reset, especially if you need to use a USB hub for any reason, even a powered hub. Overall, my experience with this model has not been good, but more or less from the actual design perspective. From an audio perspective, the audio is good enough for PC gaming, Skype, and other VOIP applications, both as a listener and speaker (friends have complained that I sound distorted when I have tried headsets that were not from Logitech). The sound quality itself, to me at least, is comparable to Logitech's laser-tuned audio on its higher-end models. Also, it is lightweight, so extended use will not cause headaches or neck pain. Pros: - Good audio quality - Good microphone quality - Relatively high quality for price - Price low enough that you can afford to replace it when it breaks - Good for occasional use - Lightweight Cons: - Design flaw with thin wire between headset and volume control leads to short in wire - Volume control design will often break - Short life (~3 months total) - Touchy USB port - Too delicate for daily use Recommend for: - Occasional Skype or VOIP usage - Occasional audio applications

Broken in a knot.
from Edina, MN
Well, this is good, I had gotten this model because it was the same kind that was at my school. The sound quality was good enough. And for their price. They're rather comfortable. But while I was unwrapping the usb cable to take them out for use the plastic band that was attached right by the cushion had snapped. I am yet to find a way to fix this. But it was very unexpected. It broke like pop corn. And they seem to be now unwearable. I do hope that I will find a way later on. But anyways, good luck to all consumers. And remember. The customer is ALWAYS right. ;)
