I often use Skype to keep in touch with my friends and colleagues oversees. I had a problem with a low-quality sound when calling for free on Skype. I’ve tried several headsets, but I would say that Plantronics DSP-400 Digitally-Enhanced USB Stereo Headset is the best so far. It is comfortable, foldable with an adjustable microphone, and affordable. It has a great sound, long cord and an easy volume control.
I am pleased that the headset works well on both systems, Mac and PC. I had to install software and new drive for PC though. Also, make sure that all sound options and preferences are set to Plantronics on your computer and Skype.
Plantronics is great for podcasting, video dubbing, and voice recognition software.
