How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Get better sound for your Skype (or other VOIP) calls without weighing yourself down with the Audio 478 headset. Its convenient folding design lets you take it just about anywhere, and its boom mic, active noise cancellation and integrated equalizer help keep voices clear on both ends of the line.
