Plantronics 590A Stereo Bluetooth Headset Review7.5
For all our remarks about the headband, Plantronics Pulsar 590A are comparatively convenient headphones. Depending on the size of your head they can feel a little tight. The adjustable (extendable) head-band will definitely help you be more comfortable with the device on. Yet, we prefer to take them off for a while after some time of using (2 – 3 minutes at the most in an hour), so that the head can ‘have a rest’; but that is what we do with all other headsets. As a whole they are convenient, but the upper head-band will not allow for wearing (at least comfortably) a hat or a small-sized hood.
As a whole Plantronics 590A is a rather decent headset compared to its ‘competitors’ – it is distinguished by an exquisitely rich set with a lot of accessories and promising specifications; it is comfortable to wear and its sound during conversation – one of the best, with very good audibility on the other side thanks to the extendable microphone. Music reproduction is powerful but, unfortunately, it does not meet our criteria.
- Very good sound during conversation
- Powerful and comparatively good sound at playing music
- Inconvenient buttons for sound control and next/previous track
- Absence of headband soft cover
- Lights cannot be switched off

I don't know why it didn't work for you but am I currently listening to music using the Plantronics 590E (same but without adapter) connected to my pc with a jabra a320 and at the same time they are connected to my Sony Ericsson Z550a. I can answer a call by using the call button and after the call end on the phone the music continues to play on the PC.
