Rated 5 out of 5 by PascagoulaBiker Great with Skype! This is a great headset with good, solid audio. We've actually used it a lot with Skype, even for our remote broadcast for an internet radio program with good success. Sound is very good, both incoming and outgoing, with little to no distortion, and none of the "tin can" effect. In addition, it seems to have minimal pickup on background noise, whether it is a barking dog in the room next door or "thumpety-thump" on a passing car.Here are the "cons" to this headset: the mic has to be on the left side of the face, which isn't a huge problem for most people, but it always seems awkward to me, as I'm used to it being on the right side. I find that a couple of hours are about all I can tolerate to wear the headset, as it seems to crush my ear against my glasses, resulting in sore ears at about the 2-3 hour point. My husband, with bigger ears, says this never happens to him--so if you find headsets can irritate your ears, this one might do that. (I'm always complaining about that, I apparently have ears that aren't used to being clipped or squashed against my head!)I highly recommend this headset to anyone looking for a USB headset for use with their computer for any application requiring both voice and audio--it's a good set at a good price. As for its ability to hang in there over the long haul, we've used it a couple of weeks, almost daily. No sign of wear on cord at this point, but it shouldn't be showing signs of weakness this soon. 09/25/2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiWinnipeg Great USB headset for great price. You get what you pay for, it comes with a standard USB port, volume control, mic muting control option that sits easily in the middle of the cord, not a long cord so it isn't a hassle to deal with when you're done. Sits snugly over the ears, is a bit tight, though with time and use I feel it will loosen up and not sit so firmly.Only complaint is that the microphone is on the left side of the headset, normally it's on the right side. But i'll get used to this with time.Used it today for live-stream, great for Skype calling, and cancels out most noise in the background unless you're right up against it. 10/13/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Aussiehound Good buy I bought these to use with Skype and Google Voice because my new computer didn't like the 3.5 mm that my old headset I had. The V7 caught my attention mainly by being less expensive than other USB sets from other sources. I'm happy with the build quality, fit, and sound quality. The USB was plug-and-play with Windows 7. 12/14/2012
