I've got three of the MB Pro1 Headsets, they are quite good, and very durable. I did find the pressure on the ear problematic after using it a couple of hours a day, but began wearing a hat when I dictate and I velcro'd a foam pad inside the head set to hold it off my ear further, when I don't wear a hat, and that worked quite well, either method (hat or foam) work equally well.

My Speechmike Air 4000 is quite durable as well. It is a truly premium piece of equipment.

Why three of the MB Pro 1 headsets?

 

(I have one,  and I'm reasonably happy, but I have been tempted to "upgrade" to something like the Phillips SpeechOne -  since as somebody else posted, this is how  I make my living,  and it would be worth the extra cost if it really is much better, reliable, durable, etc.   Last week I left my  Sennheiser MB Pro 1  headset behind at the coast.  I almost panicked and bought a second MB Pro 1,  calculating that it would be less expensive to purchase a second then it would be to drive back and forth. But I held off  in the hope of preserving my budget for something like the Phillips SpeechOne or comparable.  I endured a week of tripping over, stepping on, the cable for a wired USB headset.   I did not pull my laptop off the desk, but I came  darn close. I am surprised that I did not break the USB cable.  And I was not able to use my treadmill desk much, for fear of tripping over, stepping on, breaking, pulling my laptop onto the floor, etc.   For me, wireless works. )
