I bought this headset in 2007, five years ago. I have used it almost daily, and it still works. I bought this headset to use on Skype and other online chat systems, Steam games, and 2nd life, and it has been compatible with them all. It is light weight and very durable and hardly feels like it is there when I am wearing it. The boom cover for the mic was lost years ago, but it still works well without it. I have not had any major mechanical malfunctions with this headset. This headset is great for someone who wants a simple headset without a lot of complicated features or buttons to adjust. It simply has mute, on, and volume control in the line. I thought about getting a more expensive headset this year, but after looking at the competitors, and their prices / problems I decided to get another one of these as a backup just in case the normal wear of five years causes any problems.
