"When it comes to picking out a set of sound-conveying accessories, the
choice is now more divergent and complicated than ever in this post-iPod
world. Do you want a pair that you can take with you and use with your
portable audio player, as well as being plugged in for long frag-a-thons?
Are you an audiophile who won't compromise on sound quality, or is VoIP such
a massive part of your life that the mic is the deciding factor when it
comes to your purchase? There's also the complication of whether to have a
headset that works over USB as a secondary soundcard versus just having a
couple of audio jacks on the end."
