As promised I spent some time last night testing out the new Logitech Headset. I think it was definitely well worth the money. The earphones do a nice job of replicating the sound from your input, however there are a few high frequencies here and there.
The microphone, which was my biggest concern and main reason for purchase, worked surprisingly well! I was correct that the mic is a little short and is definitely not as close as you would like to your mouth, but in testing a few recordings I think it sounded fine.
Anyway, I decided I would go ahead and get the video up for good measure. It is just another unboxing styled video which will give my initial impression and let you see what you get for the money should you go this route.
Here are some specs, for those who care:
Logitech USB Headset H330
Digital Audio, Adjustable Headband, Noise-Cancelling Microphone
Microphone: 100 Hz - 10 kHz
-64 dBV/uBar -44 dBV/Pa +/- 3 dB
Cable Length: 6.5 Feet
USB Compatible: 1.1 and 2.0
Works With: PC/Mac, Logitech Vid, Skype, Windows Live, AIM, and Yahoo
And being the nice guy I am, here is where you can source a set for yourself:
Also note that most of the people who picked these up also got the 9' USB 2.0 extension cord, lol. As I stated in the video, 6.5' is very long, but you will be surprised how much length you might need to allow for your usual position while gaming...keep it in mind while you check your options.
