Telephone Headset Recommendations

Anyone use a good budget headset for phone calls?
For use with laptop VoIP.
(Also use with a Cisco deskphone if possible.)

Required spec:

~30 quid
Stereo
Flip-up boom mike.




Hit me.

Had a set of these a while back but the boom mic broke.

Still use the case.

The train :(

I don't know how much they cost, as work paid for them but I have a set of Plantronics C320s at Starkers mansions. They do the job.

When I get to work tomorrow, I'll see what I have there.

To add to the above, they use a USB to connect to my computer and there are buttons on an inline control, which allow me to control the volume, answer calls and also finish them.

I won't be making it in to the office today, thanks to the southernfailways guard's strike ....

Don't want the USB style. Less flexible as to what you can plug them into.

Have looked at Plantronics but I think the "C" range seems to be a pro range. (expensive)

Thanks for the input though.
