"The HS1A is certainly a high quality headset and certainly worthy of a little more money than something from Labtec or even Ozone, but, it's not worth as much money is it is, especially when the HS1 is available for very little more. Even without Dolby Headphone, if the HS1A was priced at $50, I would heartily recommend it, because it is much better than cheaper headsets. However, because it lacks Dolby Headphone and is only $15 cheaper than the HS1, the HS1A just isn't a good value. So, if you want to buy the HS1A, don't: buy the HS1."
