This headset plugs into a USB port and has it's controls for volume, etc. right on the ear piece. That is very convenient when you need to adjust the volume. In addtion, the contols allow you to change modes from talking on the phone to listening to music to internet gaming - all conveniently located on the same ear piece that the volume control is located. The unit has noise cancelling as well which really makes for easy listening regardless of how you are using them. I use them for personal internet calls through Google and for Live Meeting communications for work.....and of course for listening to music. The padding on the ear pieces are extremly soft and comfortable and the headband is padded as well. The microphone pulls down for use or can be moved up and out of the way when not in use. This all adds up to true digital audio in stereo and a perfect experience for anyone needing to use headphones with their PC. I have two sets, one for home and one for the office and will be purchasing a third set to have upstairs with the PC there.
