Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
A good headset - A good headset
Mon, May 06 2002 | 1:51AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Ahh...the wonderfully world of headsets...What? You don't like them? Well, too bad, 'cause if you want to use a cell phone while driving, some States will fine you if you're not using a headset. What's the point of me mentioning that? Nothing really... I just felt like an original intro, that's all. Okay, okay...seriously, I love the idea of headsets. The only problem is that most of them are mono. I hate mono...with a passion. Why? Because it's rather difficult for me to give my attention to two things at once. Mono headsets leave one ear open for you to hear other things around you. Well, pardon my arrogance, but I DON'T WANT TO hear the stuff going on around me. If I did, I'd take the bleedin' headphones off! *pant pant* Okay, I'm calm now. Anyway, with the latest online games supporting voice chat, many gamers have broken out their old desktop mics, in moist anticipation of pure gaming bliss...only to be told to "Shut the %^$@ up!" because their voice is so hopelessly mangled. This is usually because the gamer has an omni-directional mic (meant to pick up ALL sound, not just sounds parallel to the mic). Since Mr. Gamer Dude likes to "pump it up", the mic also picks up all that speaker sound, and that equals a WHOLE LOTTA feedback. If we were to have a clear unidirectional mic and strap it to some decent headphones, we may actually have something worthwhile. Labtec has your answer: the Axis-002 Stereo Headset.
