How to communicate on line?


Getting Older :)
In line with a similar thread from Ish, I am wondering what is the best way to communicate. By this I mean;

I have been told that the best way to talk is with a headset microphone?

I do have speakers so with my microphone/headset, should I then get a microphone headset with headphones as well or just the microphone?

Thanks you any help.

What ever tickles your fancy, Craig :)

I have found with using a headset with microphone and speakers, it is easier for the other party to hear me as the microphone is always the same distance from the mouth, no matter which way you turn your head.

By the same token your earmuff speakers on your headset do give you the best sound with less interference from other sources (kids playing, wife complaining etc.)

As you can get some of these headsets with mikes for a few dollars only, just try one out and see (hear) for yourself?


I use a headset with a microphone and headphones in one. I mostly use it for gaming when talking to people over Skype or TS or vent for the mmorpg's that I play (GuildWars).

Thanks for the replies, I actually thought using a headset with mic and headphone would be best but I was not to use.

I'll go shopping today :D
