Need a new headset

Just like the title says!

Need a new headset

Postby Page1News » Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:22 am

Hi guys! I'm in need of a new headset for Skyping via latptop. I currently have an older wired headset, but I want a wireless -- the kind that you can walk around and talk. I've looked and looked and can't decide what kind/brand would be the best. I'm constantly Skyping, so I need something that is easy to travel with, that has background noise cancellation, volume control and clear audio.

Anyone have any great suggestions? I'd like to stay under $100, if that's possible.

Does your laptop have Bluetooth? That could open up some possibilities for decent-ish wireless headsets around the $50-$100 range.

Dumb question alert: How do I know if my laptop has Bluetooth? All this nontechie gnome knows is that I need a USB thingie -- I think.

You are a Mac person, right? If you have a model released in the last 5 years, you have Bluetooth.

I'm a mac desktop. PC laptop. I got this laptop about a year ago; it's an Acer.

ETA: When I search for bluetooth, I get this list: Bluetooth not exists, Bluetooth enable, Bluetooth disable.

I would not recommend doing Skype through Bluetooth. You will be disappointed and the people on the remote end will be frustrated. JMHO

Skype does list wireless headsets on their shopping site, but you'll notice they all come with their own dongle. I would start with the ones on the high end of the price spectrum and do some googling to find out how they operate in real-world conditions. Be sure there is a liberal return policy when you do buy one. Test it extensively with family and friends before you use it in any professional situations.

http://shop.skype.com/headsets/

The problem is that you are compressing and decompressing the audio at least twice and any latency at all in the signal will quickly make the conversation unbearable. Think of a call where one or both parties are in a moving vehicle on a mobile phone in a low coverage area. Like that . . . only worse.

EDIT --

This one seems to get pretty good reviews, and a fair number of reviewers say it works well with Skype. I would start with this as a benchmark. Don't buy a bluetooth wireless headset for Skype. This one uses the same frequencies as a cordless phone.

Thanks, DH. I've been looking at Skype's shop. I guess I didn't realize just how expensive they can get. But with my job, I need something really, really good. So, I guess you get what you pay for in this instance.

Can you use Turtle Beach headsets on computers?

If so, my husband has a nice headset that was about $80. I think* some come in wireless but I'm not sure.
