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...

It's okay

 

3 eggs because my first one worked great for 2 years and the new one barely worked and now is dead. Hit or miss i guess.

First one I had worked great for about 2 years. Only replaced it due to me accidentally breaking off a headphone

Ordered a new one and it came with something rattling. Newegg was quick to replace it. After 2 months with my replacement, it has stopped working. My friends started telling me I was cutting in and out. I watched in the call settings to confirm what...

Ok but Cable and Plug is Flimsy

 

I've owned ALOT worse. Many headphone/microphone combos I've owed were a lot flimsier with really thin cords

Good sound, mic works well

The cord and USB plug is sort of flimsy. My kids have managed to almost separated the USB plug from the rubber boot. It still works and my kids may be a little rough

Buy it

 

Decent Bass ; Great Mic ; The inline mute works like a charm ; I'd use it for gaming streaming etc

slightly uncomfortable head piece but It's just because I had the cinch to tight

Amazing Quality

 

I've used this for recording training video voice-over as well as VOIP calls and the quality is superb for both.

Sound quality is very very good, microphone boom is very adjustable, built-in controls are nice, USB cable is very long

None

Good headset and mic, but don't buy if you have larger ears.

 

Probably I'd recommend this more if I had a smaller head

Mic works great ; Good for music and gaming on the cheap

Very uncomfortable for people with bigger ears and heads. Like me. :P

Decent headsets

 

I bought these to use at work. In the IT business and my neighbors can't keep the noise down. Good at drowing out exterior noise and listening to music. I use this with my IP phone and audio and mic works great. My work has since bought us some very...

Easy to setup, comfortable, decent sound. So far pretty durable

None really other than maybe price as compared to similar headsets
