Thanks, I bought a Plantronics Gaming Headset 367. One feature this has
is that the microphone is adjustable, and retracts so that the next time
I bring it to the installfest, there is less of a chance that I will
break it. The price was $25.84 free shipping. I'll report on how well it
works later on.
