I recently have been given a good reason to sign up for Skype. Having no expertise on computer/PC peripherals, I asked via Plurk for suggestions for a good quality, portable, but affordable headset I can use mainly for Skype-ing purposes. A lot of people suggested I buy an A4Tech headset. This is the brand that the Pakbet Podcasters use, recommend, and even offer as a prize for their online contest.
Having owned an A4Tech earbud, which was affordable, I headed to Digital Interface at a local mall and searched for a good A4Tech headset. I was presented with 3 options, I chose the smallest, most lightweight, and cheapest model: the A4Tech iChat Headset (HS-6). It costs only P295, way below my budget of P1,000. Based on the A4Tech website, a ComfortFit Stereo Headset (HS-26) would have been a better option being more lightweight. But it wasn’t available so I had to settle for an HS-6. Based on it’s packaging, it has a noise-canceling microphone and its “dynamic microphone ensures excellent speech transmission.” Hmmm…. wonder if it’s true.
Haven’t tested it yet, but maybe will do later or tomorrow. I hope it doesn’t disappoint. Sayang din ang P295 noh! Do you have an A4Tech headset? Or can you recommend a better brand or model?
