Best bang for the buck in single-ear/speaker USB headset

 

I always joke with my friends to buy the "crummy +1" headset, meaning: don't get the cheapest, but the next one up. Well, this is usually the cheapest and it's lasted the longest. All headsets and headphones seem to have quality issues with the wiring...

Excellent price-point, can be left or right ear, has only 1 ear/speaker (which many people like and/or need), USB, works wonderfully under Linux, Mac & others. Has not only a swivel mic, but it is on a flexible, "positionable" boom so one can use...

Not the highest-quality construction, but for the price it's as good as the single-ear units costing more, and certainly beats most others in the price range. I also have had the "tightness" of the swivel mic completely loose it's "grip" over heavy,...

Always reliable, great headset!

 

I've never had a problem with this headset style or make ever. Having one ear piece allows the user to be aware of their surroundings, without having to remove the piece completely. Great product!
