    Don’t bother with the fancier models of the Panasonic headsets. This bare-bones model has all you need. So it doesn’t have volume adjustment or a mute button. Who cares? Your phone should already have those features. Besides, that redundancy would weigh down the entire unit. Also, this headset is very inexpensive to own, so those unnecessary features would drive up the price, which would not be a good thing.

    If you own a Panasonic cordless phone, this headset works best with these phones. I own many Plantronics-brand headsets, which are excellent on my cell phone, but horrible on my Panasonic cordless phone. Callers constantly complain that I sound very far away. But then I bought this Panasonic-brand headset and callers hear me very clearly. Ordinarily, I’d be annoyed at having had to buy an additional headset for my Panasonic phone, but it was so cheap that I really don’t mind. Now I’ve got an extra headset that I can use in my car! An added bonus is that this Panasonic also works really well with my cell phone, so if I had to choose one, I’d ditch my more more expensive Plantronics headset since that only works well on the cell. But, it’s important to note that the Panasonic headset is not that portable so I’m not throwing away anything just yet.

    Best monaural headset you can get–but not very durable, November 30, 2004

    I am very particular about headsets. This Panasonic headset has been my favorite headset ever, and I own at least 13 headsets (really). Unfortunately, mine developed a bad/intermittent contact somewhere, but I go through headsets like bottled water (only 6 of mine work). I bought another because I couldn’t stand using my ‘backups’ anymore. I recommended it to 2 friends, and theirs are going strong, but they use theirs less. I use my headsets hard, often hours a day.

    The leatherette earpad is comfortable, and will not wear out & need to be replaced like foam covers will. This one has a good-length boom and mic gain. People don’t say, “What? Talk louder.” with this headset, and they like the way my voice sounds; in fact, I believe it is the same mic element in my older high-end (nice-sounding) KX-TC series Panasonic phone, because people can’t tell a difference when I switch over. Receiving sound is also very good; not too weak or too strong, but if I had to choose, a little on the stronger/efficient side, which most people prefer.

    The headset doesn’t feel delicate, but I guess it is, or at least some internal wiring is, as poor durability is reported. It’s not an excuse, but you ~could~ buy 2 or 3 of these for the same price as more expensive models (even Panasonic) and still not get a headset as good-sounding or as comfortable.

    I have ruined headsets by rotating the mic to get it pointed more towards my mouth (I don’t mean bending the boom). Don’t do that. If you pull off the foam windscreen, you will notice that the mic is at a 45 deg angle when it is facing your mouth. This is actually proper from a sound engineering aspect.

    Everything which makes this headset larger, ‘clunkier’, ‘mid school’, ‘unattractive’, or ‘uncool’, or its lack of collapsibility serves to your advantage for good sound and comfort. Due to its size, it’s not ideal to bring along for cellphone use, but if you do, while you have it on, you will be well-served.

    Like the previous reviewer, I have used/owned Plantronics (not Panasonic) headsets and they do not work well in my Panasonic and other home phones. The (Plantronics–I’ve used 3) mics simply do not produce enough gain, and the booms do not come out far enough to the mouth. So I use them as backups. Plantronics used to be the expensive quality leader, but their quality seems to have suffered in recent years, and prices remain high. Panasonic has been the only brand to consistently do right by me on many products.

    Amzn price on this item fluctuates. Anything in the low tens is a great price online, anything in the mid tens is the best price you’ll see in a store, and the high tens is typical store price.

    This has a 2.5mm mini-plug for use in cell and home phones, not computer sound cards. Headsets are made in China, like everything else we depend on.

    I am using mine with a GE 26977GE6 phone, which came with a somewhat uncomfortable street-style headset. The Panasonic KX-TCA60 headset is much louder and clearer. I did not realize how poor the stock headset was until I tried these Panasonics. My only problem with these is that the volume is a bit too loud, even at the lowest phone volume. Otherwise, this headset is great.

    Update May 2009:
    After many years I’m still using these. A couple have broken on me with no easy way to fix them, but they are cheap enough to be considered a disposable product. These days I have a second pair on standby because I’m pretty sure I’ll snap the headband on my current pair eventually.
