      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.

        I had had a set for 2 years without a problem. Bought 3 more because they were on sale, and my kids keep destroying other brands. This is a much higher quality product than any other USB headset available at this price. I would recommend it to anyone.

          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.

                    This is a lightweight piece of equipment that performs well out of its price range. The microphone is better than any headset I've ever owned, and the sound quality almost outshines my much more expensive Turtle Beaches.

                          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 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'm a network administrator for a K-12 school and have purchased about 20 of these headsets. They have great sound quality for the price and are relatively durable.

                                    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.

                                    I bought this headset for Skype. It works well, the ear cups are comfortable, although are on the smaller side. In-line sound regulation is convenient. Sound is clear and people at the other end hear me well. The plastic head band is tight and will likely cause discomfort after some time. Overall as expected.

                                        Good Sound Quality. Have not yet tested the Microphone.
                                        This being a USB connected Headset, it is difficult to toggle between Headset and Computer Speaker ( 4 Clicks - to change Playback default. That is a minor inconvenience, that brings the rating down to 4.
                                        Otherwise a good value headset with quality sound.

                                            Using this set for an online "virtual classroom" training session. I hear the others very well, and have been told that my voice is coming through clear, also. Does a great job of external sound suppression, but not total.
