Outstanding piece of hardware for our VOIP phone system. It doesn't become entangled in women's hair (as happened with a cheaper headset from another vendor). It is lightweight and comfortable. Packs easily in a laptop bag with or without the carrying pouch. Sound quality is superb when speaking and listening. Users love it because they can listen to stereo music when not answering a phone call.

Note that the Blackwire 500 series has 4 variants: C510, C510-M, C520, C520-M

C510 is monaural (has only 1 earpiece to which the microphone boom is attached). C520 is stereo. Both are built for UC applications and softphones from Avaya, Cisco, and more.

C510-M is monaural (has only 1 earpiece to which the microphone boom is attached). C520-M is stereo. Both are certified for Microsft Skype for Business and Optimized for Microsoft Lync.

If any doubts, Plantronics has a helpful site and my calls to their sales team have always been met with cheerful and helpful advice.

So far the unit has been well performing. I like it over Jabra 40 which had poor construction and broke quickly.
This unit also works well with Skype, seamless integration.

I have th c320 in the office. Got this one for home as an upgrade. Not sure it is any better. The pads are a faux leather type material— only difference I noticed. Not sure it feels better... just different. Stick with the cheaper 320 is my advice.

Great sound quality but built for smaller heads. I am a woman who cant wear most womens' hats. It does start to feel too tight within an hour to me, but I'm sure it is wonderfully comfortable for most women.

I use Microsoft Lync for all my company communications (calls, conference calls, and video calls), so I needed to upgrade from my cheaper USB headset (which made me sound like I was in a tunnel to my callers) and buy something more reliable. I noticed that this Plantronic headset touted integration with Lync, so I decided to give it a try....especially since the company was paying for this.
I've now had this headset for about a month, and really like it. Lync instantly recognized it upon plugging it in, and all of my callers have commented that I sound great. And it's comfortable sitting on my head hours at a time.
I would say the main negative for me is that the microphone arm tends to want to hug my cheek/ i have to re-adjust it a fair amount mid-call so that I don't have any heavy-breathing into my mic.
Other than has been great!

Since it's verified by MS I'm sold. Initially used first at work, worked great. With Windows 10, SKYPE & MS teams works fabulous.
