Panasonic's KX-TCA86 headset is the simple solution for hands-free phone conversation. The headset works with any telephone that has a standard 2.5 mm mini-jack, and the 4-foot cord gives you a generous amount of room, especially if you're connecting to a cordless handset. The headpiece fits securely around your head with a comfortable molded ear cup and folds down for compact storage. The adjustable noise-canceling microphone boom is reversible, so you can use your preferred side for speaking and listening. Panasonic includes a one-year warranty covering part and service.

Customer Reviews:

  • Headset KX-TCA86
    The headset works great. There were no problems with reception and my hands were always free. :)...more info
  • Excellent hands free product
    I have a 1 month old daughter and i need both hands free to take care of her while on the phone. This handsfree head set has been a life saver....more info
  • Another dust collector
    I was so excited to be able to use a headset while working from home. No such luck...I received several complaints from callers on the other end that could not hear me. I tried every adjustment I could think of, including adjusting my phone and holding the mouthpiece directly on my mouth. Sadly, this one made it to my pile of unusable products shortly after receiving it....more info
  • Great Product
    I have tried a few headsets and this one far exceeds the others I have tried. Sound quality is very good, durability is excellent, and it is comfortable. This works great with my cordless home phone as well as my cell phone (motorola tracfone). ...more info
  • Comfortable Fit, Good Sound
    Very pleased. Good sound transmittal, both sending and receiving. Fits on the head very comfortably. Have recommended to friends, who have also purchased this product....more info
  • Great seller!
    Good price for product and more than reasonable shipping charges along with speedy shipment. My new puppy chewed my earphone cord and I just can't deal with talking on the phone without them....more info
  • Can't use, can't review
    Just received my orders - 1)Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Headset, and 2) Panasonic KX-TCA86 Comfort-fit headset with travel fold design. I am not alone in the house, and we have 2 computers - one upstairs, the other downstairs. I used the MS LifeChat w/o a problem because it has a USB connection. But the Panasonic KX-TCA86 I could not try because its 2.5mm connection is too small incompatible w/ the computers' or monitor's plug in connectors.

    However, the Panasonic has a more comfortable & lightweight fit than the MS LifeChat. I can leave it on my head much longer than the LifeChat....more info
  • Simple and works well but mic a bit weak. Headbadn too large
    Does what it is supposed to. I'm using it into a Razer phone and the hearing was quite good. Folks on the other end say the mic is a bit weak and not as clear as it could be but quite understandable.

    The only real complaint I have is the same for all headsets I use. The over-the-head band is too long. This is a common failure with all headsets, they don't fit someone with a 6-7/8 hat size. The hard part ends up right on top of my off-side ear so I have to move it further to the back of my head or above the ear and then the headphone side slips around. I guess I need to boost up my ego to make my head larger.

    Just FYI, I also purchased a Plantronics Headset M175C for Mobile & Cordless Phones and this is much better hearing and mic. Plus this one folds up quite nicely. If it had a recoil cord it would be perfect....more info
  • Compatible with 5.8GHz phones
    This headset works great with my AT&T 5840 5.8GHz handset. It states on the packaging that it is compatible with 900MHz, 2.4GHz, and 5.8GHz analog/digital phones. I can hear clearly and can be heard very clearly. The only negative is there is no volume control, the headband does not adjust, and the microphone cannot adjust to come closer or go further away from your face. That said, this headset works very well and I haven't been able to find any other headsets that state they are compatible with 5.8GHz phones.

    As for the KX-TCA60 that everyone raves about, I bought it first based on the reviews and price. However, the TCA60 did not work with my 5.8GHz phone and the packaging states that it is compatible with 900MHz and 2.4GHz analog/digital phones only. This information is not on

    So if you have a 5.8GHz phone I would stay away from the TCA60 and go with the TCA86. It's a great buy and works very well....more info
  • This headset is great!
    I love this headset. I have small ears and can't use an in your ear type of device. This head set is perfect for travel. It folds up to fit in my purse or glove box. It also has great noise reduction, I can hear very well and people can hear me while I'm in an area with a lot of noise. I would buy these again! ...more info
  • Love 'em
    Best $18 I've ever spent. I work out of my house and it's made my many phone calls bearable. The sound is clear and everyone can hear me just fine. ...more info
  • They CANNOT hear you
    Consistent complaint that they the caller can't hear me... I have used many headsets over the years and this is one of the worst....more info
  • Good product
    Folds nicely, sound quality good. Would be better if it included a volume control and mute button....more info
  • Reasonably good headset
    Overall, I'm satisfied with this purchase and it does seem to be a reasonably good headset. It all works as advertised and is comfortable to wear for long periods. The only minor gripe I have is that the plug is a 2.5mm mini-stereo which, of course, is necessary to work with the Panasonic phone that I bought it for. Since many stereo plugs on other devices are the larger 3.5mm, I would like to have seen that size used on the phone and this headset. That way, this headset could possibly be used on other devices. ...more info
  • In this Price range, its a 5 star!
    Very economical and works great.
    Its not heavy duty but considering the price, I didnt expect it to be.
    But it looks like if you take care of it, you should have it for quite some time before it needs replaced. (Most suited for home use)
    Time will tell how well it holds up, but I am satisfied initially.
    Both mouthpiece and earpiece are produce very clear sounds, and the headset makes it so easy to do things while talking on the phone and eases the strain on my shoulder when I have to hold the phone for a long time.
    Nice little gadget to have around!...more info
  • easy to store, economical, works fine
    I guess these aren't space-age with all sorts of fancy features (mute, volume control, slicer, dicer, ice cream maker, etc), but they are foldable, which is great for storing them in the kitchen drawer, the headset is comfortable and you can hear with no problem, and the people on the other end have always been able to hear me with no problem. Considering the price of some of the other models, this one is a best buy, in my opinion....more info
  • Very Happy
    I'm very happy with my headset. It allows me to have a phone conversion and still have my hands free to do jobs around the house - ideal for a busy mother of 3!!!...more info
  • Headset for everyone.
    My daughter destroyed a similar headset, purchased locally. The Panasonic is comfortable, has excellent volume and sound. Reasonably priced....more info
  • the only one I'll use!
    I love this headset! Light weight, great sound, people can not tell that I am on a headset. You can't beat the price!! I use Plantronics at work and wish I could bring this one in to use at work!...more info
  • Very good but...
    This is a very good headset for the money, but try the Panasonic model KX-TCA60 instead. It has noticeably better sound quality. (See my reviews there.) This model is a little bit more expensive, has a smaller microphone (which is nice), folds (which is convenient if you really need it) and is built a little more sturdily....more info
  • Good headset
    As I'm often on the phone for hours on end, this headset has received several serious "workouts". It's comfortabe, clear, and others can hear me OK. I just wish that the length of the microphone was adjustable - might make my voice a bit clearer to others....more info
  • Double check your items.
    It was offered as an accessory to the Panasonic phone that I had purchased, but on receiving the items the phone and the headset were not compatible.
    So make sure you check clearly before you buy, just because it is offered as an accessory does not necessarily mean it is compatible....more info
