Summary: I bought this for my unibody macbook pro. In OS X I can use my iphone headset for chat programs but in Windows 7. I am forced to use the internal mic. I can't get it too work in either OS. You have to be a total noob if you can't get it to work in OS X.
Pros: The earbuds work. Thats about the only good thing I have to say about them.
Cons: The earbuds have high pitched hum and the mic does not work at all.
Summary: I'm using these for xbox 360 chat and they work well. Cheap and reliable, they aren't actually too bad for listening to music too. For music they need a little burning in (it takes a little time before the earphones sound as they should due to being new) as most headphones do, but for the price are...
Summary: I bought these as we are increasing the volume of online voice communications at work (Skype, LiveMeeting, Instant Messenger etc) and this worked a treat. Does the job at minimising background noise, keeps the conversation private (using the simple speakers in your laptop is never good for...
Summary: this is my second pair. i rate these really highly - they're relatively cheap but highly effective especially when travelling as you can have conversations over skype and the such and the background noise is just drowned out....providing you remember to plug the microphone in anyway.
Great little headset, compact, good sound, love'em!

Summary: I bought this headset because I wanted a compact, portable headset to tote around with me when I'm travelling and working on the road. Good sound quality and they work perfectly with Skype. Do bear in mind these are dual plug, but that's exactly what I needed. All on all, really pleased.
Summary: I actually bought this primarily to use as handsfree for my phone, rather than for my pc. Maybe not specifically designed for this used as I have have had a couple of issues with using it for this purpose.
Summary: I travel a lot so small and light is good. I carry a netbook and needed a portable light headset to use in internet cafes where I can Skype without disturbing others. For my requirements this is ideal. It works perfectly and I can talk softly when making a call.
Summary: I got it today and it looks great. The box will be handy for transport. I've tested it out with Skype and it works perfectly. Phones good and mic good. If I had to criticise it I'd say the box could be a bit bigger as it just squeezes in.
