Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000

 

Are you looking for the best VoIP headset for telecommuting or online chatting? See where the LifeChat LX-3000 ranks in our review of the best VoIP headsets.

The closed-ear design is comfortable and offers a good listening experience in a noisy environment

The narrow frequency response range isn't ideal for listening to music or other audio. The control interface lacks a clothing clip

Microsoft's LifeChat LX-3000 offers comfort with the closed-ear headband design. While the wideband audio is great for clear calls over the internet, the audio quality isn't great for music or gaming.

Expert Review

 

The Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 is comfortable and easy to use while also delivering excellent audio quality. However, the Messenger features seem somewhat unnecessary.

Attractive and comfortable design, Excellent audio quality, Noise-cancelling microphone, Easy set-up

Windows Live Messenger integration seems unnecessary

A really good buy

 

Apart from the most reasonable price, I especially like the earpads which fully cover the ears; they are adjustable and can be set to grip without discomfort. The 'in-line' volume controls are most helpful when responding to varying noise levels from...

Do not know what to think of this company?

 

Have not received my product. Or just any valid tracking information for it. Sorry I got worried it hit day 3 and still no movement so i ordered same product from another retailer and it has arrived. And guess what it was track-able. Reading other...

Have not seen anything yet

Placed a order and it took almost 4 days for the order to be processed to be shipped. Then when the tracking information is emailed to me by New Egg it is worthless shows no information. Going to give it another day or 2 but beginning to believe I have...

Terrible Device--Unreliable

 

NewEgg needs to expressly state that their service contracts are for one time fulfillment.

When it worked, it was fine

Unreliable as heck. I purchased a three year replacement service contract. The first set of headphones just stopped working. I set up a replacement, which was fine. Within 6 weeks, the device failed. I then learned that my service contact was for a one...

Great headset

 

Great headset at a reasonable price. I'd buy them again.

Great sound quality, decent bass, good microphone, good sound-cancelling, comfortable to wear, adjustable microphone, usb connector

They hurt my ears if I wear them for too long (as in hours) but all headsets seem to do this

Awesome

 

I've had a lot of problems with having to replace USB headphones every couple months. So far though, these have been rocking for nearly a year

The microphone stem is a little ugly and waves a little bit when in the up position
