    Grr!! I have a boyfriend that lives overseas, which means that all of our communicating is done via the interwebz. My rant, however, is about the absolute SHITE headsets I seem to be buying. I have gone through THREE headsets in FOUR fucking months. And I'm spending $30 a pop on them. They're not the cheapest ones around, but I can't afford the more expensive ones. What the fuck is the life expectancy of a decent mid-grade headset for Christ's sake? Here I am, tired, relaxed, comfortable in my cozy bed, typing to the love of my life on MSN because yet another headset is laying broken beside me. *grumble* And it's not the "snap in two" kind of break, it's the "fucked up wiring" breakage. Hate.

    When I was having a LDR there was no such thing as internet, Just really high phone bills and...
    YouTube - The Carpenters - Please Mr. Postman
    Feel better?
    PS... buy the good ones, think of the cost of buying the crap ones five times and you've paid for them.

    Yeah, I've just been stuck in this vicious circle of headset-buying. I'm unemployed at the moment, so my income is limited. It would take me ages (without a job, anyway) to come up with enough money for the good headset, and I don't like going that long without talking to my baby, so I get the cheaper ones that I can afford sooner. But then they break faster. :<

    What kind are you using?

    Logitech ClearChat are, in my experience, very good.

    (Hopefully it's not those.)

    I get mine really cheap, from the Pound Store (where everything costs £1). The headphones style one didn't last long - it snapped in half, but the earpiece style one is lasting ok.
