my thoughts on headsets:
for DNS, headsets feel very uncomfortable including the emf radiation.
so what I did, was I tried testing out turtle beach headset beyond the one included with DNS 12.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006W4 ... 00_s00_i00
for $31. I have to got to say, that that headset was absolutely terrible to buy or own.
it was not even a wireless like what i intended to purchase:
my review on it:
1) i expected it to be wireless, but it wasn't. i must have misread
2) i like how it has a nice ability to turn it off, switch
3) it doesn't feel as comfortable as advertised. esp with my eyeglasses on. could have improved by perhaps creating little slots in the headphone area that allows for eyeglass frame to fit through.
//additional unmentioned thoughts that were not added to amazon review:
i could try to use the mic only on the headset and get not plug the headphone jack in
the mute really doesn't mute the headphone sound, only the mic. i think what i really need is simply a microphone although difficult to find one specifically good enough or able to be wireless. it should have noise cancelling tech. not comfortable wearing this while lying in bed. the headset is designed for privacy. on top of that, headset gives a ton of emf brain pain. I should return my turtle beach headset for refund.
what i did just now, was I modified my original headset from DNS (was it plantronics?). I literally broke off the whole headset until it was nothing but the microphone as in I separated the headphones off and got nothing but the microphone left over.
1) i broke the half way point between the two headphones, with my bare hands, split it into two.
2) i used a wire cutter/scissors from klein tools. cut the headphone wire off, was sure not to cut the microphone wiring.
3) i finished it up to make it look smaller and simplified, by putting the plastic in the hole for the steel frame of my shelving unit and broke the thing apart like a wedge?/fulcrum? simple machine to make the breaking easier.
4) i cut off the corresponding wire that plugs into the headphones slot on the computer. i only have the microphone leftover and I only plug into the microphone component in. It seems to work fine. I do not need to buy a new mic at all!
another issue i hate about headsets, is that it does not let the computer sound get heard on the main speakers built-in on the computer, the sound is only allowed into the headphones on the headset. very irritating because i really don't like having the headset on all the time. thankfully, i can listen to the microphone only now, without the sound going into the headphones. the sound is clearly heard on the main computer speakers
