The Achilles' Heel of such items is not so much sound quality, but construction. Either the headband breaks somewhere or else the connecting cord does, often due to absorption of skin oils and the resultant hardening of the cord, or else too much strain at the entry of the cord to the headset. Whatever, eventually with enough use something goes wrong. My answer is this: if you want a lightweight headset, find one that fits and get the cheapest you can buy... several of them, so when the monent arrives for a new one you have it ready to go. This is my recommendation after many years of going thru some very expensive headsets, which of course cannot really be repaired. To this end, the headsets I'm reviewing are absolutely the best possible ones to buy BECAUSE Walmart had them on a closeout sale... fairly priced at an average retail price of about $15 a set, but REALLY well priced at $6 or so each, on this closeout. I bought all they had, which was 5. They also have a mike for use with one's computer, phone or whatever.
