SWMBO in one of her many roles requires a headset for skype. Her only real stipulation is that it is wireless, and she does not like headphone style (as in she doesn't want the band that runs across the top of the head).

Budget: $100 or less. Suggestions please

I have a $20 bluetooth headset (the type which clip around your ear) I got off 1Day. It was a nightmare to set up (due to bluetooth driver issues with Windows), but now it's going, it works great.

You get what you pay for.

I went through a few cheap headsets before biting the bullet and spending a decent amount on one, I finally have a stable headset with good software and drivers.

http://avantalk.com/products02.php?id=18 - it was a 1 day special on the "1Day" website, so I don't know whether it's available. Note: I already had a bluetooth adaptor on my PC, so if you go down this route you will need to buy one if you don't have one already.

+1 for that.Showed SWMBO this link, and it looks like it will fit the bill nicely, especially as it's also USB.

Thanks all for the suggestions :thumbs:
