USB telephone V Headset and Mic for skype

  golfpro 07:54 15 Dec 2006

Is there a lot if any difference in sound quality both incoming and outgoing between a cheap to mid priced headset and a USB telephone (Wi-Fi phones tend to be expensive), I would like to hear from someone who has tried both if poss.
I ask this because I have had one or two comments from people I have called that it sounds like I'm breaking up, like a mobile with a weak signal. I am currently using a relatively cheap mono headset with attached mic.

Hi golfpro, I have both. The phone makes me listen more carefully as even on full volume it is quieter than my speakers. With both I speak with a little delay, more pronounced than normal, manely due to a slight echo. The microphone and speakers are more usefull when hubby joins into call as well
