No, I do not recommend this product.
I purchased an earlier version of the GE foldable headset in the past. Unfortunately, the headset cracked when it was inside luggage on an airline. The original headset was comfortable with a long microphone boom that reached nearly to the mouth, allowing clear communication.
This model update is much smaller when unfolded and, in fact, is hardly able to reach both of my ears. Furthermore, the hinges seem weak by comparison to the original. The boom mike is only 2/3 the length of the original, ending up near the cheek rather than close to the mouth. Unfortunately, GE chose to change the plug size for the mike, so the older, better mike cannot be used.
Finally, whereas the original headset had a nice long cord that allowed some movement when in use, the new model's wire is too short to allow you to stand up while using it with a laptop on a desk.
GE took an excellent design and high quality and made it into a cheap substitute unable to match the original in any way.
Pros: Compact
Cons: low quality, short cord, small when unfolded

TravelerSkip, the cord length is the same on the new version as the old version. As for the MIC boom market research found that the shorter boom is preferred by the vast majority of people. The hinges were moved from the back to the sides to improve the durability of the headset. Jasco Products Tech Support (Manufacturer) GETechSupport

This is my second corded headset from GE (my first one broke after a couple of years), and GE has improved all the issues I had with my first one, but added a couple.
My original headset didn't have in-line volume control or mute control, this one does. Also, the frame on the new one has been redesigned to fold flatter and more easily, and appears less likely to break.
A couple of downsides, though: the microphone boom has sound holes on the end of the boom instead of the sides, so people I'm talking to sometimes complain they can't hear me as well. Additionally, the frame redesign makes the headset less comfortable to wear (at least, for my head). The frame presses against my scalp just above the ears and causes discomfort when worn for more than a couple of hours. Otherwise, an excellent product for the price, I'd recommend it to anyone.
Pros: Great Sound Quality, Nice Design, good value, inline volume control and mute, durable frame., good sound quality
Cons: uncomfortable after long periods, microphone boom sound pickup is poor
