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.

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



Consumer review by:

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

Failed after four months


Long cord

The microphone no longer works after four months of use

It was ok...


Cheap, easy use, sound quality was decent, comfortable, overall a decent headset

Broke in 3 months, the wiring around the mute and volume buttons was ruined, currently using duct tape to hold it together so the mic works. The audio still comes out fine, but the mic is barely working. It didn't last very long, and I take care of my...

Great... While they work


Mic quality for this price is superb, sad to see it's discontinued.

While they're working, they're wonderful. Mic comes through crystal clear on the other side, everyone is happy. Sound quality isn't the best, but I didn't buy them for that anyway

They stop working randomly. And then windows refuses to recognize them for the first 20 times I plug them back in. Really, really annoying, and it happens often. Maybe it's a defective set and I'll have to get them replaced, but I've only owned them...

Great Bang for the Buck


My old Plantronics headset broke after a couple of months of use. I had to fight the volume controller just to get the sound to play on both sides of the headset. However this headset already seems much better. The cord is really strong and thick so I...

Great headset. Very comfortable. I love how the headset encompasses your ears and the leather is very nice. The is sound great as well. The mic is excellent and is much better than my old Logitech headset. It has a very nice build quality and the cord...

The volume controller could be smaller and the cord could be longer but the headset is still great

Just plain Nice! very comfortable and great sound

My only complaint is that the volume control on the cable could be smaller... but otherwise these are really nice
