A Good PC Headset

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 5:24 pm

I’ve been using several “Plantronics .Audio 655 DSP” headsets. They attach via the USB ports. Every linux/m$ OS I use has had no problems with discovering them. The sound quality and microphone are fantastic. For about $30 a piece, see http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=plantronics+.audio+655+dsp&x=0&y=0 it’s a wonderful deal.

These headsets are wired. I also bought the wireless version but the battery life is so bad they are not useful. For anything. The first wireless I exchanged thinking I got a bad battery. The second was no better. Furthermore the wireless version can’t be used while charging and the charging takes hours. So a few minutes of use, a few hours of charging, so discouraging! Stay away from the wireless version!

The wired version is probably the only headset 99.999% of the population needs. It has destroyed the market for any other manufacturer.
