Whether you're getting your game on,hopping into a Google Hangout,or videoconferencing with friends or coworkers,you need a good headset to hear the action and be heard by other people listening. The trouble is,there are tons of great options. This week we want to know which headset (with an attached microphone) you think is the best all-around model for the job—one that offers great audio quality and voice clarity to the people on the other end.
It can be tricky to find headsets that don't totally trade audio quality and comfort for voice quality (or vice-versa),but there are some great ones out there. Keep in mind we'll select based on brand—not necessarily specific model number,unless there's overwhelming love for a specific device. Leave us a comment below with the model or brand that you prefer.
Hive Five nominations take place in the comments,where you post your favorite tool for the job. We get hundreds of comments,so to make your nomination clear,please include it at the top of your comment like so: VOTE: BEST HEADSET WITH ATTACHED MICROPHONE. Please don't include your vote in a reply to another commenter. Instead,make your vote and reply separate comments. If you don't follow this format,we may not count your vote. To prevent tampering with the results,votes from first-time commenters may not be counted. After you've made your nomination,let us know what makes it stand out from the competition.
About the Hive Five: The Hive Five feature series asks readers to answer the most frequently asked question we get: "Which tool is the best?" Once a week we'll put out a call for contenders looking for the best solution to a certain problem,then YOU tell us your favorite tools to get the job done. Every weekend,we'll report back with the top five recommendations and give you a chance to vote on which is best. For an example,check out last week's five best non-iPod digital music players.
The Hive Five is based on reader nominations. As with most Hive Five posts,if your favorite was left out,it's not because we hate it—it's because it didn't get the nominations required in the call for contenders post to make the top five. We understand it's a bit of a popularity contest,but if you have a favorite,we want to hear about it. Have a suggestion for the Hive Five? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
