It is a Plantronics headset I got a while back. I'm looking to get a nice headset. I have tin ears, but I would like decent headphones, but a good mic is a must. Comfort is a big deal to because a long game of L4D and my ears hurt from my current ones. I am looking to spend around $50, but if it is worth it I am flexible on that. Just asking for ideas or personal experience.
find a pair of headphones you're very comfortable with, then grab the Zalman ZM MIC 1http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=13863 ... MAN%20TECH
You're supposed to clip it to your headphone cable but the clip is a bit wide for that. I clip it to my lapelland the only mic i've seen better is on my brother's sennheiser PC-350s ( http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=29043 ... lectronics
) somehow i doubt you want to spend $220 on a headset though.
Grab some nice $40+ phones and that $11 mic and you should be set.
