    I'd like to get a headset to use Skype, preferably without cord.. (bluetooth?)

    anyone have any experience with Skype / headsets?

    I could maybe be persuaded to go corded... Senheisser PC145 looks nice.. hrmm

    I run a Macbook Pro..

    any tips or experience welcome!

    if you have a bluetooth headset for your phone, that can be a good starter head set for skype.

    are you looking for something to travel with your laptop. plantronics makes a very nice fold up usb headset.

    pro:
    sound quality good
    mute button
    volume control

    con:
    big bulky dsp on the usb cord. makes it sorta pain to travel with.

    most bluetooth headsets should work with your Mac provided it follows the hands free profile and others i can't remember. (there was also a thread similar to this a while back...)

    i have a jabra bt250v, awesome headset, works great with skype (some people say i'm too quiet on it and i sound a bit far away, but adjust the settings a bit and that goes away for the most part..)
