    New Headset

    Need to get a new one as my current one only works if the mic is practially inside my mouth.

    Any recommendations for a headset around £30?

    Re: New Headset

    I have exactly this headset for a bit over an year. I bought them for something around 35 euros. And they are great. Good sound quality on speakers, 3D sound is also good, good microphone sound quality, and it has a very long wire.

    I use Plantronics and have for years. Good company, and great products. I always use the USB type.

    Re: New Headset

    I use the same headset as you suggested. Its quite good and has been holding out quite well, the only thing is that the potentiometer appears to have been worn down. Also the covering of the mic is gone since a couple of weeks. Although its almost 2 years old now.

    Splash out a bit more and get a wireless headset. You can go and make a cuppa and still hear whats going on in TS.

    Re: New Headset

    Wow that wireless looks like a good idea, if it sounds half decent that is. I'm using a good old Koss Portapro headset, and for microphone I'm either using an old desktop mic or an old headset with a mic on it mic hung around my neck.

    It's a bit fiddly but it has great sound and it's dead cheap.

    The wireless one is superb. Crystal clear, I been using one for 3 years now. It has a volume control and mute button built into the earpiece as well.

    Re: New Headset

    Yeah, I have a Logitech wireless headset that's been going strong for two years now. Cost me maybe $50-$60 when I bought it, and it's SO nice to be able to take the battle with me for a quick smoke.

    Re: New Headset

    Does that Logitech wireless headset have 7.1 or other surround sound so that I can hear you sneaking up on me to place an smine behind me, slightly to the left? Cause I'm really liking the sound of a wireless headset. How long does the charge last, too?

    I have a Sennheiser something or other model. It's okay. Loooooong wire with a volume and mute thingy on it. Really comfortable and the sound is great. Just another model to consider.

    But, wireless? Yeah, that sounds sweet.

    Re: New Headset

    5.1 home theater system hooked up to my PC (via multichannel input) and a desktop mic (that is more than 10 years old) FTW! Although I do use a headset on ocation for quiet gaming sesions when I don't want to wake the people in my apartment.

    Re: New Headset

    I got tired of low quality headsets and having them always break.

    Decided to go with nice headphones and one of these.

    I
    t's also nice if you're using speakers instead of head phones. Just clip it on to your shirt.

    LOL no Ayrton its not mine.

    To be honest I couldn't give you an accurate time on the battery life but I would guess its a good 5-6 hours. I'll do a test next time I'm using it for a an extended period of time and let you know. I usually leave the charging cable plugged in when i'm at my pc and just unplug it when I need to go make a cuppa or something.

    Re: New Headset

    Yeah, my charge is about 5-6 hours. If I start it an hour before battle, then by dinner time (EST) I need to plug it back in. And yeah, it's surround sound--I can hear which direction something's approaching from.

    If you're going to die, die cool.
