    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. I like the inline remote control, it has convenient buttons to increase/decrease volume and mute the microphone. The cord is about 2 meters long, giving you plenty of room to move. The only negative, is that I have been told that the sound quality of the mic is not that good, even if it is right up to my mouth. However people who I asked were comparing it to a studio mic so that may not be a fair comparison, and I was certainly undertandable. For the money, it does what I need it to do and would still recommend it in this price class.

    I've had to go through two of these lifechat headset in the past year both only lasted for about 4-6 months then they start to short out and literally fall apart. They have cool sound and great noise cancelling but they really don't last long I guess that is why they are cheap. After about 2 months the cord starts to curl up upon itself and that seems to lead to it eventually shorting out also the material they use for the ear pieces falls off after a while.

      Nice purchase. Headset seamlessly integrates into Windows laptop. Good quality mic, and is very comfortable over ears, even for long periods of time.

      Only negative I can think of is that there is no feedback for the mic, so you cannot hear the quality or volume of your own voice when making VOIP calls. (Thus, you wonder how you sound to others).

        Comments about Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Headset:

        I use the headset mostly for VoIP conference calls where good audio quality (mic especially) matters. Compared to others I've used in the past this one sits snug over your ears and removes some (not all) of the ambient sound from your ear--and that's alright, it's not meant to be a $1,000+ helicopter pilot headset. The microphone arm is flexible, you bend it out of your breath path, when you're not on a call you swivel it up and out of your way. It's the most comfortable headset I've ever owned, I've gone through nearly 10 at this point in my career. The material is plastic, but it doesn't produce the creaky sounds for your conversation partners that I've experienced with others, the in-cable volume/mute controller wouldn't pass Jony Ives' desk, but then, who's gonna argue with this price. It's a fantastic value! Highly recommended.

          We bought this for my son. He loves them! He says they are very comfortable on his ears and the sound quality is awesome. The mic works great and he is able to use it with his school programs.
          B&H is a great place to buy from online. Products always arrive promptly and packaged safely.

              I plugged this into Windows 7 patched according to company standards; it downloaded device drivers from the internet; has worked great for Lync calls ever since.

              If you use it for more than an hour, it might press into your head too much, but I have the option of resting it on my shoulders for a while.

                I use this headset for my computer while I'm gaming or watching movies, Youtube, whatever. The microphone has worked wonderfully and I've never gotten compaints from anyone about the quality of sound they were receiving. The sound for the headphones is good. A word of caution, do not yank too hard on the cord connection to the sound volume control, as it can make the sound cut out in one ear. Treat it nice, and it will work perfectly.

                            The headset works really good with the internet reading program we are using them for. They were easy to connect and sound is very clear.

                              First headphones received did not work properly. The mute button was stuck in "mute." As soon as I complained in a review, B&H went into action and shipped a second set to me free of charge. I am happy to report that the new ones are working to perfection and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

                                I have been using this head set for gaming, listening to music and for skype. It has been absolutely phenomenal. It is a little tight on top of the head but it is still comfortable.

                                  I purchased this to conduct online meetings and conferencing. It has worked well so far. It was easy to setup, just plugged it into the USB.

                                  It is marketed for use with Skype and other Microsoft conferencing platforms, but it will work other systems.

                                        I've had to go through two of these lifechat headset in the past year both only lasted for about 4-6 months then they start to short out and literally fall apart. They have cool sound and great noise cancelling but they really don't last long I guess that is why they are cheap. After about 2 months the cord starts to curl up upon itself and that seems to lead to it eventually shorting out also the material they use for the ear pieces falls off after a while.
