These are the headphones I used a few years ago, but stopped once the microphone stopped working. The old pair lasted about 3 years before I got rid of them. So if you aren't too rough with them, they'll work fine for longer, assuming the microphone holds out.

I replaced my old set with some Monoprice headphones. The microphone didn't work at all on those, and even after having them replaced the microphone still didn't work. After using those for a few months, I went back to these. But now I notice a problem. High frequencies don't come through on these, while the audio on the Monoprice headphones was crisp and clear. So just beware that you get what you pay for with these, and the audio quality on the speakers could be better.

The audio quality on the microphone, however, is superb. I don't think I've ever had a headset with a better microphone. It's possibly too good, it can clearly pick up my mouse clicking and any background noises that may exist. It may be going months without a microphone that works, but this microphone is definitely good enough for whatever use you might put it to.

Something they changed from the old headphones is the in-line volume controller no longer has the large center button that opened Skype (I think). For me, it's definitely a plus since I never used that button on purpose, but was constantly hitting it accidentally. The Amazon images currently show a picture of the volume controller WITH that button, but the one I received doesn't have that button there anymore. Also, the buttons are now black, but that's not really an issue for anyone.

Other than these, the cord is long enough, since I'm sitting right next to my laptop where I'm using it and the cord really only needs to be 2 feet long for me.

Recently ordered 6 different headsets: The Microsoft LX-6000, Microsoft LX-3000 (this one), Logitech H390E, Logitech H650E, Sennheiser PC 36, and the Sennheiser SC 660 USB CTR

I've yet to receive the SC 660s, which are the most expensive pair by far, but I can tell you that out of the above, I far preferred the Sennheiser SC 36 for pure "like you're there in the room" quality and the LifeChat LX-6000 for noise reduction.

However, the LX-3000 has the second best mic out of the 5 headsets I tried above, as well as several gaming headsets I've gotten to use over the years (including Turtle Beach and Sony).

It's one of the few where the boom goes goes right IN FRONT on your mouth, where it should for the best quality.

It also has nice big earpieces, which can be good if you're seeking a bit of isolation from your environment for listening.

Noise reduction wise, though, the LX-6000 has some additional circuitry this doesn't. However, that comes with a higher amount of self generated noise, what audio engineers would call a high "noise floor", which this doesn't have. i.e., when you're not speaking, the LX-3000 is less noisy than the LX-6000 overall.

The LX-6000 also has a considerably inferior mic, which is bandwidth limited and makes you sound more like you're talking on a decent quality cell phone. The LX-3000 sounds more like a mic should. It's more natural and present.

You could use this headset to do basic voiceovers for instructional videos, YouTube, podcasts, etc., without being made fun of for audio quality. That's a rarity for headsets, which tend to have awful microphones.

If you're looking for a step up, I'd go with the Sennheiser PC-36.

I don't do a lot of Skype chatting and I don't make a lot of business presentations via webcam or anything, so I don't need super high-end headset equipment. Give me the bare bones, make it cost-effective, and I'm a happy camper.

That's precisely what you get here with the LX-3000. The earphones adjust to fit firmly but very, very comfortably over your ears, even with a big, giant head like mine. The microphone moves up and back, so you can use it as a mic headset or as just regular earphones. All in all, it fit well and was very easy and enjoyable to adjust and use.

The cord is nice and thick and long, ending in a USB connector. This means you no longer have to fiddle with the microphone jack that's often located in the very VERY back of some PCs! That was a HUGE plus for me. What's more, right smack in the middle of the cord itself is the volume control pad, with big buttons for increasing and decreasing the volume, as well as a microphone mute button. In case you need to swear at someone under your breath. Uh, not that I've tested that. (It works great for that.)

My only gripe is that the sound you get from the mic itself is a wee bit tinny, though it's not so terrible that I'd return it or anything. Be advised, though, that you're not getting -crystal- clear sound here. For that matter, not anywhere for under $50. Still, it's not terrible, and tinny as it may be, the mic picks up everything, even quiet background noises. So it's definitely a strong mic, just not a super precise one.

Other than that little issue, you're getting a pretty nice, pretty low-price, pretty high-results little unit here. Fits well, works nicely enough, and has convenient USB connectivity with that cool little button pad for volume control. Recommended.
