As my Track IR is arriving next week I have to figure out a way to attach the "dot" to something and figure I might just as well get my self a headset with microphone.
Are there any benefits from a USB headset? Can I get surround sound from my speakers and radio chatter in my headphones? I have a Audigy2 with 5.1 speakers. Any users with experience and advice out there?

yes, great question.

i was asking a similar question whether a usb headset would allow you to separate the voice comms sound from the FB sound?
but i haven't had any luck finding the answer yet..

Found on the ne!

"The total number of USB ports on your computer can be easily increased through a USB Root Hub. A USB Hub provides moderate signal boosting and provides an additional number of ports. Several Hubs can be connected together in a cascaded or daisy-chained fashion (up to 127 devices)."

You can get a LOOOOT more devices!
