Excerpt: Heard about these headphones during a webinar. The two presenters used this model and they sounded good during the webinar. Someone asked what kind they were using, so I searched Staples for the Microsoft LifeChate LX-3000 Headset by Microsoft. The price was 19.99 so I bought them. They had free delivery to the store. This made if convenient and a lot more inexpensive than paying shipping on top of the price of the headphones.
Excerpt: This is a lightweight piece of equipment that performs well out of its price range. The microphone is better than any headset I've ever owned, and the sound quality almost outshines my much more expensive Turtle Beaches.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Excerpt: Bought these for my son who plays online all the time. He absolutely loves them and they don't advertise that they are noise cancelling but they work in that area as well. He loves the easy mute button so when his parents come in and start talking his friends won't hear us communicating. Fits his head perfectly. Would purchase another set.
Excerpt: I bought this headset to use while videoconferencing, and it does a decent job. I am using it with a Mac mini, and OS X recognized it as soon as I plugged it into a USB port. You can then turn on and off the headphones and mic independently if you have other sound gear hooked up to your Mac using the System Preferences > Sound menu. The earcups enclose your ears and the sound quality is acceptable.
Excerpt: Pros: - Very comfortable - I wear a Logitech headset at work though, so I'm used to the weight. As a beginning headset for somebody used to ear-plugs though, I could see that they might seem heavier than some others. - Price - At first the store price was $29.99 but they matched the online store price of $19.99 (although I had to show them the price on my phone), so I feel pretty happy about it.
