    What would you recommend for a decent/good headset, reasonably priced?

    Are there any special considerations I need to know about?

    All I've ever used is a VERY cheap hand held mike, which plugs into my SB Live Sound card.


    I'm looking to buy a mike/headset to chat on Teamspeak for a one-time 'meeting/discussion' on some matters...not specifically for On-Line dogfighting/coops, or whatever.

    However, I MIGHT at some time in the future be more active on-line, so I don't want just a cheapie headset for this one-time TS discussion/meeting. I also Might be recording, in teh future, some 'Radio-Telephone" comms and/or Narration/voice-overs for an FB Movie.

    Any advice??

    Sennheiser PC-150
    Slightly expensive but the sound quality is good enough for music (unlike for example Logitech).

    I use a Logitech USB one. I only use iot for comms in the sim so it works fine for me. Whatever you pick I highly recomend USB.

    I use the Plantronic Audio90 headset:
    http://www.plantronics.com/north_america/en_US/products...QCQBGNUSFFAKAEZWQIV0

    Good sound in and out. It's very light, and I can wear it for hours with no problems at all.

    The microphone can easily be muted with the inline button - and incoming sound can be turned up and down as well. If you dont want to use the microphone, the boom can be bent up.

    I use it with an Audigy2 soundcard.

    David & Clark makes good ones, but if you're looking for one for a PC, not an airplane, go Plantronics.

    Done. Got myself a Plantronics 90 for $18.95. Seems to be working perfectly. Thanks for the advice.
