Skype headset...

Hi guys!

I would quite like some opinions from people who use skype. Here's my situation...

I used to use skype quite a bit with headphones and a webcam (as my mic). Recently I was away from home and was using it in some random internet cafe's to call home using a headset.

I want to start using it again, as the calls are just so much cheaper, also can send cheap texts now. I dont want to use my webcam as a mic anymore as its a bit of awkward. I'd like to get a headset to use.

Now, I'm not too sure which one to buy - I know there are lots out there.

I assume that the best headsets will be USB headsets - is this true and is the difference noticable?

Does anybody have any headsets that they use and would recommend to me?

Hey,,,I have a headset which is USB the quality is excellent - its true they are noticeably better! I reccomend the Logitech USB headset which is what I have. It costs about £30 or less and worth it! hope this helps!

Hi. Like Phil2816 I use a logitech headset model 350 and find it excellent. I ring Canada and Australia regularly and have never had a problem.
