Got myself a new wireless headset for the computer.
It's a logitech G533:
purchased from Amazon for about $75 (https://www.amazon.c...dset-x/dp/B01MXE0FKC)
I like it. It has good range, feels comfortable, has no leather/pleather but fabric instead (this is important because the older pleahter headsets I have had have all disintegrated over time). Nice physical on off switch on the headset, along with a swivel down microphone for chat/gaming.
It is *NOT* bluetooth. I actually have a different bluetooth headset and transmitter for my stereo, and don't have serious complaints about it, but it IS a bit more fussy in terms of connecting between the base and headset whenever you turn it on. For my pc, I wanted something that was easier.
This is a nice small usb stick I just plug in when I want to use the headset and it instantly connects, no muss no fuss. Unplug the usb stick to disconnect.
Overall, I'm quite happy with it.
A couple more neat features: Compact mic folds up out of the way and when it's up it automatically mutes.
