Still running... sort of

Summary: My uncle bought one of these back in 2004. He gave them to me in 2010. As you can see, I'm writing this review in 2015. Been using them frequently until about 2012, when the DSP controller on the cord went wrong. The mic stopped working, and the buttons/light on the cord stopped working.
Summary: I love this head set. It is the best one I have found. all the newer ones don't work as well. I will order another one each time mine gets worn out. It is the best for dragon dictate, and has outstanding sound quality.
Summary: First off, I've gone through 4 of these (with one in its package waiting, a backup) in my life. It is no longer made which is a shame. When they were being made, I could buy one new for $40 or so and it was worth it. I don't know if it's worth this exhorbitant price but it might very well be.
Summary: Many people out there know headsets don't last long. I have gone through many pairs myself. In 2005 I purchased this headset on an auction site for $46 + $9 shipping. Mind you, there is some tape on the flex mic since there is an exposed wire after many years of use - but the mic and audio quality...
Summary: I've tried a dozen headsets from the best manufacturers. None of them are comfortable in the long run and few of them sound as good as my GameCom Pro 1 did. I miss this headset. Please make more.
Summary: I like these Plantronic Gamer headsets as an "On Ear" type headset. They're USB, with their own DSP controller to take the load off the motherboard sound chip. Very comfortable to wear for hours of gaming. Very good mic, to speak to others that might be online gaming with you. Very durable as well.
Summary: These headsets are great with 5.1 sound quality and minimal microphone feedback but they cost $61 while you can pick up the DSP-500's which are the same exact headsets but with a different paint job for $18 on clearance from the plantronics website in the clearance area.
Summary: The sound and recording abilities of this headset are amazing. The only drawback to this is an addition the gave that actually causes problems over time. There is a volume control and mic mute part way up the cord that can be clipped on your shirt etc.
Best Headset Out There! EXACT same model as DSP 500's!

Summary: One of the ears in my DSP 500's lost it's sound recently, so I threw them out and looked for a new pair online, but had no such luck. Then I read that Plantronics has discontinued them, but what I didn't know was that this headset(GameComPro1) is EXACTLY the same as the 500's, with the only...
