I think the device thinks it is no longer being used. In normal conversation, this is not a problem. I cannot figure out why this does not happen when listening to music (no mic at all). 2. On disconnecting the FreeTalk device from the PC, the PC does automatically go back to a default setting (connected speakers in my case). The PC must be reset to a new sound output device. --- Overall I am getting a second one! The sound quality on the earphones is actually quite good.I was pleasantly surprised at how well music sounds with these.If I go outside, it seems to drop-out more quickly. If I turn on the microwave, interference causes major drop-outs unless I stand at least 10 or more feet away from the microwave. I did have a problem recharging the headset the first time. Here's the thing.

if you run it all the way down to the point that it starts giving the low-battery warning beep, it seems to need to be connected directly to a USB port on the computer to successfully recharge. Connecting it to a USB extension cable or a USB hub seems to work it you're recharging before the warning beep starts but connect directly to a computer if you hear the warning beeps. Don't ask me why. this is just what I've found from experience. Battery life seems to be good. Don't expect to wear it for marathon sessions of 5 or 6 hours but wearing for short periods.Longer than that and it starts hurting my ears. Probably could use some thicker ear-padding to wear it longer. Now, here's why only 3 stars.The problem is that, while the mic works fine the majority of the time, at other times it sounds like I'm talking through a fuzz box or drops out almost completely.

Posh Gypsy 3.0 out of 5 stars I live in Central America and I wanted it to use with Skype to talk to my family back in the US plus I wanted to listen to music on my computer as loud as I wanted. I've only had it for a week, but with Skype it works like a dream. I haven't tried answering and hanging up using the headset device, but as far as wireless headphones the sound is very clear, and I'm told that my voice with the mic is crystal clear as well. I get up, walk around, wash dishes, tidy up, all while talking to my mom. My problem with this device comes with using it for anything else other than Skype. I thought I could just plug it in to listen to iTunes, but it won't work that way. In order to listen to iTunes or any other internet sounds through the headset, I have to completely shut down the computer and reboot with the headphones attached. This is a big, fat pain and that's why I give it three stars. With Skype it's just connect-and-go, but with anything else it's reboot-and-go. If anyone can advise on how to remedy this, I'd gladly change my review to 5 stars!Please try again later. Please try again later.

Crisp and clear. there is a very slight problem with the mic but it is hardly worth mentioning. I have yet to find the range limit, although the lower the charge is, the shorter the range and more susceptible to interference. The shortness of the cables makes using the headset during a recharge undesirable. Also, the constant 3-beep low charge warning can be distracting. But it does come in handy when I use the set 2-3x a day. The charge lasts more than long enough for most average calls on Skype. Plus an unknown benefit never mentioned in the paperwork; on Skype you can use the mic and headset to talk and play music on your built-in or external speakers with totally separate volume control. I love that. Over-all this is absolutely worth every penny. I would HIGHLY recommend this wireless set.Please try again later. Please try again later. Endy Pepper 4.0 out of 5 stars I've tried and had issues with other units, such as a Motorola Bluetooth unit, with being too small and not adjusting to accommodate a larger head. This unit scaled to fit me comfortably. Setup was a breeze, simply plug it into an open USB port. I'm using it with Vista and Vista detected it right off and installed it. I didn't have to install any drivers or software at all. I game online and use Ventrilo to game with my friends and this unit has been great for me in this application. The sound is very good and I've heard from friends that I sound clear on their end. I also use it to listen to music via my pc and the sound is very good for a unit of this type. Don't expect it to be the quality of high end studio monitors, but for headsets of this type, the quality has been so far very good. As for range, I can go from my pc to the fridge in another room, probably a good 50 feet away and it still comes in clear, but any further than that and it cuts out.

But I live in an apartment that might be generating radio interference from multiple sources and I have a few walls to go through. If you live in a house with a better and more open floor plan, you might get better range. Battery life seems fairly good. I don't think I've gotten a full 8 hours, maybe closer to 6. But I have enough battery life to get through a full gaming session, which is enough for me. My big thing is I don't want to be tethered to my pc, I was always hitting the cord. With this unit, it's light weight and comfortable and NO WIRES, so it's perfect for me. I saw some reviews having issues with the vendor, ANTonline. This is my first and only purchase from them, but I had nothing to give me a negative opinion. I got my headset in a timely manner, within the days specified, so I'm happy. I've never had to work with their customer service, so I can base no opinion on that. Why not give it 5 stars. Something can always be better. Even longer battery life would be good. I would like to be able to go a few days usage between charges, but I can't have everything:)Please try again later. Please try again later. tb10818 5.0 out of 5 stars I got them mainly for gaming and listening to music.Its awesome being wire free and just being able to walk around while talking to people and listening to music. They fit just right, not to tight and not so loose that they fall off whenever you bend your head down. One thing I don't like about these is the volume button. I really wish they had made it a wheel instead of a clicker button (if you know what i mean) also when you adjust the sound on these you are controlling the computer volume and not the headphone volume which isn't that big a deal. Definitely recommended.Please try again later. Please try again later. keith k 4.0 out of 5 stars It's setup is as easy as it gets. You just plug in receiver to usb port push the pairing buttons and well thats it. The sound quality is very good with hardly any interferences.

I got this headset because of the good reviews. The only negative reviews were due to product failure of defective item. Non due to the quality of its functionality. For the price you pay for this headset its a very good deal. I was going to purchase the logitec wireless headset, but upon reading reviews I purchased this one. So far i am very happy with my decision.Please try again later. Please try again later. Daniella Allen 5.0 out of 5 stars So when I got my package today, I was optimistic but cautious. I fiddled with the manual, which is a bit confusing at first, plugged them in, charged them, and finally used them. Imagine my surprise when the audio quality is only slightly, SLIGHTLY worse than my pair of expensive Skullcandy headphones, to where I don't really even notice it. I then tested it by running around the house, to the kitchen, the bathroom, and even a bit outside.Not even a LITTLE bit. The battery life is good, I'm extremely appreciate that it is rechargeable via USB similar to my MP3 player, it has volume control on the ear. I have yet to test the mic, but I feel confident it will be fine. I am VERY satisfied with these, and for a much more reasonable price than the other wireless headsets I had been looking at (and those also had less features and a lesser rating!). Wonderful headset.Please try again later. Please try again later. John 1.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't live up to the hype. The range was about 10 feet before it started to break up, it was horribly uncomfortable to wear. When I returned it to ANTonline, they dinged me with a 15% restocking fee. Yes it was in their return policy, which I never saw until I decided to return the product. They called my return buyers remorse.I commend ANTonline for their perfectly executed approach to Customer Prevention. Good one boys, you'll not see my credit card again!Please try again later. Please try again later. Hammer J. Helmer 4.

0 out of 5 stars Has a good battery life, great sound clarity, good microphone settings. Comfortable to wear, even for extended periods, both sides move up and down to adjust. My only negative is that it will sometimes get a little buggy when I plug it in to charge while wearing it (which you can do). The usb dongle has a 2 foot wire to the antenna, then a 2 foot cord to plug into the headset. Works with Vista 64bit.Please try again later. Please try again later.

The FreeTalk has the exact same electronics and configuration as the Asus, but have slightly different earpads. They are less comfortable, but it's the only available replacement for the HS-1000W. These headsets are easy to use, have an excellent flexible boom microphone, good wireless range (radio, not IR), and are the best thing going for webmeetings, VOIP, and Skype. If only Freetalk would have used the more comfortable earpads of the original Asus.

Len 5.0 out of 5 stars After reading mostly positive reviews on this headset from multiple sources I decided to give it a try. It was very simple to set up. Friends on the other side of the call say the mic sounds very good. I use it every day and the battery life is great. I haven't totaled the talk time but I can definitely get a few hours of talk time between charges. Then when it does need a charge, it continues to function while charging connected to the USB dongle. Cons. The headset was a little tight on my ears when I first got it. The band, between the earphones, is metal.

So I carefully bent it wider and is now comfortable. The USB dongle has a flawed design. The port for the headphone charge cable is near the USB port end of the dongle. It's too close to the PC. In my case this made it unusable in a rear USB port of my PC.Please try again later. Please try again later. DiscriminaTor 2.0 out of 5 stars It does, however, have a much better audio quality for music listening and more comfortable ear pads. There's also an option to buy an iPod adapter for the Soundon headset, which allows to use it with an iPod and not only with the PC unlike the Freetalk. It is apparently made by a Skype subsidiary of sorts called InStore Solutions. It is also sold on Skype's website. I was hesitant to buy a headset made by a software company in the first place and now I know why. It could've been a great product, but poor audio quality, very limited application (PC only), and wearing discomfort made me return it (InStore accepted my RMA request). I do give it 2 stars for trying though. If you're a road-warrior, traveler or just looking for a single pair of headphones for both music and VOIP then try your luck elsewhere. There's a decent amount of mid-base, but lacking highs and muddy mids. Headset can't be used with anything besides a computer since it only works with a wireless USB transmitter. Which means, I still need another headset for use with my iPod (or any music player), which is especially problematic when traveling- I'm not going to now carry two headsets with me. I believe this is the case with most other wireless headsets on the market today (i.e. they can't be used with sources like TVs and MP3 players- only with supplied USB dongles for a PC, though you may find some that also have iPod dongles) I think any wireless headset should at least incorporate a standard 3.5mm plug as an option to use with other devices besides a PC. There is no feedback from the mic going into the headphones, i.e. you can't hear yourself well.

They are relatively bulky (again, in comparison with PXC-250) which is not very good for travel, especially if you have to bring two headsets. I guess all that wireless circuitry and control buttons take up space, but would think they can still be made much smaller than they are. There're other silly things about this headset too- flashing light on the USB dongle when the headset is powered off (quite irritating, especially when using a laptop- it's in your face all the time, unless the dongle is removed). Furthermore, the audio output is still redirected to the USB dongle even when the headset is off, so you have to physically remove the dongle to get audio directed to the default audio device (in Win7) or tweak audio device settings. It would be helpful to also have the mute indication on the dongle and better yet- on the tip of the microphone, which is usually within your peripheral vision. Perhaps, a system tray icon for mute status indication as well.Please try again later. Please try again later. Denys 5.0 out of 5 stars I use it everyday and appreciate the fact it can charge directly from the dongle even while using it. The only thing that was surprising is not hearing myself talk when in conference.Please try again later. Please try again later. Jeferson F. S.

MacMan 5.0 out of 5 stars Apple Store didn't have any, neither did Best Buy or any of the other retailers I contacted. One finally suggested I look on Amazon.But these are fantastic. The bluetooth connection works well, the sound is fantastic, and I can now walk around the house without worrying about how long the cord is or whether its getting tangled. Battery life so far is great. Absolutely no complaints.Please try again later. Please try again later. Craig Michelson 5.0 out of 5 stars We use for Skype and general listening.

Rock 1.0 out of 5 stars I recently bought a replacement, but within 2 weeks the earpiece broke (as other reported) and after fixing it with duct tape and a rubber band, it no longer holds a charge and the earpiece broke of completely. Quality has seemed to dropped off. I won't be buying another freetalkPlease try again later. Please try again later. Tim Hendrix 5.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't recommend wearing them for more than 20 minutes straight without a short break. I highly recommend them though for calls over the internet!Please try again later. Please try again later. This wireless headset is designed to be used with Skype or other VOIP services, including GMail Chat, and they pull double duty as a pair of wireless headphones for listening to music. The wireless headset uses AvneraAudio to handle the wireless transmission so you will need to use the included USB dongle to get connected, but that pays off with instant pairing and great audio quality for calls and listening to music. The headset is SuperWide band compatible for enhanced clarity when chatting on Skype. We’ve put the portable wireless headphones to the test taking them from home to office to coffee shop to see how well they handle travel and numerous settings. The portability was one of the things we liked most about the Freetalk Wireless headset, and it’s obvious that portability was in mind for this package. The headphones fold down into a carrying case about the size of a CD binder that holds the headset, USB receiver and charging cable. Use as a Wireless Skype Headset: As a wireless Skype headset the Freetalk Wireless is great. The audio quality on both ends is top notch and after multiple calls no one on the other end could tell I wasn’t calling from a landline. On the callers end the person you are talking to comes through crystal clear, almost as if the person you are talking to was really in the room with you.

Comparing the quality of calls on the Freetalk Wireless to the corded Skype Everyman headset we reviewed last year and to other set we have used is hard to do because the audio is so clear. Don’t even bother comparing it to the built-in microphone and speakers on your notebook, this headset will blow it away. Another thing that we really liked about this headset was the freedom to walk around. Day to day I used this wireless headset with the Ergotron Workfit C stand up desk that we have in for review and the ability to wander all over the office while on a call, or while jamming to the history of rap, was great. When it comes to battery life while chatting the headset is rated for up to 5.5 hours, which matches up well with our use for chatting. Unfortunately that number drops pretty significantly when you switch over to cranking out music, but you can use the headset while you charge which is nice. Use as Wireless headphones for your Laptop: Unfortunately, it’s when you start to use the Freetalk Wireless Headset to listen to music that the perfection begins to crack and show that the headset was first designed for chatting and calling, but they still perform OK in most settings. As far as audio quality these headphones won’t likely touch that of a set of Beats headphones, but they do offer an enjoyable musical experience handling a range of musical styles and frequencies well including the low end. When it comes to range the headphones are also great easily reaching the rated 15 meters, even with a cinder block wall in the way. The microphone, that delivers such great audio when calling, is what ruins it for music. You see, or rather hear, the microphone on the headset is always on to the headphones. This means that while you can mute your calls or mute the microphone in Skype or on your system, you can never turn off the pass thru sound.

This is great for chatting as it keeps you from yelling when on a call, but when you are trying to listen to music you’ll hear the air conditioner kick on, a phone ringing, interrupting coworkers, your spouse’s TV show and yes all those shrieking teenagers at the front of the coffee shop. The best way to counter this was to put the mic to the back, pointing down towards your shoulder, but it would inevitably still pickup some external noise. To counter this you will likely crank up the volume, which leads to a shorter battery life when listening to music. In tests we found that the headphones lasted around between an hour and 2.5 hours while listening to music, depending on the volume we were listening at. Build and Comfort: As far as the build and durability goes the headphones appear to be pretty sturdy. They are designed to collapse and even with many joints and pivots they didn’t feel like they would break when we stressed tested them. It also helps that the portable carrying case provides some protection in your bag. For comfort they are certainly more comfortable than wired version we had looked at, complete with a padded band at the top and cushioned earpieces, but after an hour of use they did start to feel a bit tight. Conclusion: The Skype Freetalk Wireless Headset is a great headset for chatting on Skype, that can pull duty as a wireless headset for listening to music in certain settings. If there was a way to turn off the microphone when listening to music the Freetalk wireless would be the perfect addition to your office and backpack.

Most Turtle Beach headsets are designed to work with a computer, but they can also work with some game consoles using a special adapter. The headset connects directly to your computer's sound card, and the included amplifier lets you control every part of your audio experience, whether you are playing a game, watching a movie or listening to your favorite songs. 1 Connect the plug at the end of the multi-pin amplifier to the jack attached to the headset. Some headset models may already have the amplifier attached to the headset. 2 Plug the colored audio jacks into the corresponding ports on your computer's sound card. Some headsets have only a green jack and a pink one, while others have green, orange, pink and black jacks. 3 Connect the USB cable to an empty USB port on your computer. If it is working, the green bars on the screen will move when you talk. 8 Control the headset using the buttons on the amplifier. You can adjust the volume of each individual speaker within the headset or mute the microphone. Warnings When you first turn on your headset, set the volume low and then adjust to a comfortable level. Prolonged exposure to loud noise, such as from headphones, can damage your hearing. Tips Some Turtle Beach headsets do not work with computers; they only work on a game console, such as the Xbox 360. These headsets include the X-Ray, Tango and Delta models. Consult your headset's instruction manual to determine compatibility. She is also the owner and operator of Howbert Freelance Writing.
