    Just out of curiosity,

    Has anyone had any experience with this headset? It's apparently designed to be used for cells (duh! :p) as well as ipods , pcs, macs, etc. But has anyone used this for things such as ventrilo? My headset is ridiculously uncomfortable for me at the moment and I stumbled upon this out of sheer boredom...

    I've spoken to a reseller here in Irvine and he says that he believes it'll work..

    Thanks in advance!

    Why bluetooth? you would need to find a BT adapter for your PC(unless you're using a laptop) with the audio gateway. If you're just looking for sound and aren't one of those audio nazi's Sony has a set of headphones that are corded and clip over your ear and are very comfortable, I think I paid $14 for mine. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs...51&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=11037422
    If you happen to be one of those Audio nazi's I would recommend

    I think I paid $114 for mine and love them

    For whatever that's worth.

    well if it were just for my pc.. that's a different story but it's also for my cell so I'm gonna try and knock out two things with one device. And I am an audiophile to a degree.. I blame me working for the BOSE corp for a few years.. :p

    good god. You really want to spend 150+ bucks on a headset? I know with electronics you get what you pay for, but come on, that is a bit ridiculous imo.

    I have been using a 40$ USB logitech headset that goes over my ears, and sits quite comfortably and I havent had any issues with it. Went through 5 pairs before I found one that wasn't total crap or broke or what not.

    I just wanna make sure that ya'll know that this is to fulfill several things and NOT just vent right? Besides the question that I was posing was to see if anyone had tried this in as far as this application meaning for vent. It was NOT to discuss whether or not it's a quality product. I'm gonna assume that the answer is no and since that's the case.. thanks for your time.. ^.^

    BT headsets work fine on PC. We had one person use her's for VoIP (not Skype but something similar).

    ahh ok.. thanks EF2. I'm just used to using headsets so when I perusing the net, I saw and thought.. "Hmm.. wonder if it would work as a headset." Sadly.. I don't think it would due to function...

    regardless.. thanks for the info and insight.. I wasn't planning on buying it.. just was wondering how it sounded.
