It offers simple USB connectivity to your PC and Bluetooth connectivity to your mobile phone and tablet. Ideal for knowledge workers who need a seamless solution for managing calls on their PC, mobile phone or tablet, the Blackwire 700 Series is the most integrated, premium headset for UC.
Smart sensor technology Experience industry-first Smart Sensor technology that lets you answer a call by simply putting on the headset, or pause mobile device media playback by taking it off – making it the most productive and versatile “corded” headset on the market.
Unmatched sound clarity The Blackwire 700 Series offers premium PC wideband audio with noise-canceling microphone, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for natural voice sound, and SoundGuard for protection against audio spikes – making it ideal for conference calls, webinars, listening to music and other multi-media. The 700 Series C720 also offers hi-fi stereo sound. The Dynamic EQ feature optimizes your voice quality when on calls and automatically adjusts the EQ settings when you’re listening to music or multi-media. Integrated A2DP lets you listen to streaming media from your mobile device, including your favorite songs, podcasts and more.
Wearing style options The Blackwire 700 Series comes with two user wearing options: hi-fi stereo (dual ear) C720 for those who want a richer, more immersive audio experience or mono (single ear) C710 for users who prefer to leave one ear open to their environment. Both feature a lightweight headband for all day comfort.
Enhanced mobility Ideal for those who need a seamless solution for managing calls on their PC, mobile phone or tablet, this versatile headset goes beyond providing outstanding PC audio quality, allowing you to take your mobile calls with you! A detachable cable and integrated clothing clip provide in-office mobility with up to 10 hours of talk time. The headset also features ear cushions that fold flat for storage in the durable, portable carrying case – great for when you want to take the headset on the road.
Software enabled functionality With Plantronics Spokes software, you can get the added value of call control across multiple softphones, headset battery status display in PC icon tray, headset control panel and automatic UC presence update when on PC and mobile* calls.

This review is from: Plantronics 87506-02 C720 Blackwire Over-the-head, Stereo (Standard)
Pros: Stereo Headphones Clarity of Sound Smart Sensor
Cons: Stupid Cord & Dongle Proprietary Micro USB Cable
Other Thoughts: After struggling with cheapo headsets I opened my wallet and went back to Plantronics. I have used several Plantronics headsets over many years.
I don't understand the need for a cord on a wireless headset. It is always in the way and bumps the microphone mast which makes a noise the call recipient can hear. Cut the stinking cord or make it removable for those times when I want a true wireless solution.
PLEASE PLEASE give me a USB outlet on the headset that does not require a proprietary cable! I can see that the connector is a micro-USB, why surround it with a special plastic plug. Now I must carry two micro-USB cords instead of just one and I hope I never lose the Plantronics cord or I am hosed.
The good things about this headset I love. The bad thing are stupid and maddening.
