What's a good headset? - Which is not unduly obvious, as I am about to explain
What's a good headset?
Sorry if I haven't gotten back to people lately; I've been setting up new hardware at home and so my communication was on the fritz for a while. There are still some technical hurdles to embrace. Such as, can anyone recommend a good computer headset, or share experiences with good or bad brands/models out there? The things I want most in a headset are:

- Fits a large head
- Very good microphone quality
- USB, Over-the-top-of-the-head style (not around the back)
- Mike not directly in front of the mouth
- Under $50

Not important: Sound quality of the headphones. I want to record and have Internet conversations without sounding tinny and awful; not listen to music. Thanks!

Current Mood: indecisive

I bought one from Logitech for use with the voice recognition features in Rosetta Stone. It worked very well. I also found it very comfortable. The mike can be positioned in a number of places, and still pick up sound. (I discovered this when I positioned the mike arm so the mike was on top of my head. I thought it would keep people form hearing me. However, someone said they could hear me breathing. I was kind of congested that day.)

Cool! What's the model, or, failing that, does it match any of these?

Thanks for pointing me to that video by the way! Now that's a fine actor - acts with his voice, his face, even his legs - great body language, the tiger rug as a continuous obstacle, and it looks like it was done all in one take too. :)

Its the Logitech Comfort USB, third one on the page.

My Dad showed me that video, and I knew you'd like it. Its just hilarious. I've watched it again a few times.
