Cordless / bluetooth headsets with PC and PPC for VOIP / Skype
Posted on 2004-10-21
I’ve just started using Skype with an old PC headset that plugs into my sound card. I am sufficiently impressed with the world of VOIP that I want to upgrade my headset.
1. It occurred to me that I could use a Bluetooth headset (I have a dongle on my PC). I have a Jabra 250 headset for my mobile which is recognized by the PC but that’s it. I read somewhere that the headset has to offer the right services – is that right? If so is it just a question of buying the right headset? Alternatively is there a wireless (not Bluetooth) headset out there?
2. I have a 54g wireless setup at home and an IPAQ 4350. Can I use this with Skype as a sort of mobile within my signal area? If so can I use a Bluetooth headset. I read somewhere that the IPAQ doesn’t support Bluetooth headsets. If so can I buy a regular earbud / microphone.
3. Is there anything better than Skype out there?
