    Does anyone know the best headset to get for a mac (macbook) to use with skype. Would like to talk to my daughter in Italy and we have skype but everyone says we should get headsets?

    Thanks

    Any headset should do. I use a Bluetooth headset.

    BTW, I think this belongs in the Mac Applications forum.

    Headphones, from an iPod/MP3 Player are generally good enough, to eliminate feedback, allowing you to turn the volume up.

    If you want a pretty good (not the best, those cost hundreds of dollars) headset, you can get a logitech headset for about 30 USD. Look on the packaging for a "Made for Skype" logo and make sure it has an USB connector. Then you'll have one cable and no hassle with the Mic/Line-in of your Mac (If you have a line-in on your Mac, an analog mic needs pre-amplification).

    I use a Logitech Playstation 2 Headset...it's USB so it works just fine on any computer. Only complaint is that it has a blinding blue light on it that keeps half a room lit blue while the lights are off.

    I'm using a Logitech 350 USB headset with Skype in S. Korea. It works great and the mic quality is good.
