Skype headsets...

Those looking for a headset suitable for use with Skype may be surprised at the variation in prices found for the same product.

The Skype website, for instance, suggests you go to Amazon to bu the Plantronics Audio 20 model, where it costs £12.99 plus delivery.

In fact an e-mail today reveals the headset only costs £8.22 from and may well be even cheaper at other outlets.

This appears to be the cheapest headset in the range so superior models' pricing may vary even more.

I ordered a Plantronics audio 45 set from Amazon last week they were the best price at £25.99 including delivery. As always it pays to shop around.
No doubt someone will find them cheaper and make my day.

I'm sure I saw something to do with this on Maplin's although it looked like a telephone

Knew I had seen it but it's expensive

If you think that's expensive I've seen it at a price that's 50 per cent more than Maplin..:-)

One forum member has already posted that he preferred using the USB phone version to the headset; it's probably because most people are used to holding a phone rather than speaking into a headset mike.

..I've just spotted a two-phone (USB IP) set on e-Bay for £22.25 that may prove interesting for some people:

I got the Plantronics audio 45 set and have used them with Skype to call the USA and land lines here in the UK. Also use them to listen to music stored on PC.
They work fine with no complaints, just take a few minutes to set the volume on the mic and that's it.

Alternately, wait for a Maplin "sale". I got mine for ~ £25

The equivalent is still around £10 cheaper on e-Bay - see the same link as above.
