Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The ClearChat PC Wireless headset works with Mac OS X and Windows.

The ClearChat PC Wireless headset works with Mac OS X and Windows.

For massive multiplayer online games such as the popular World of Warcraft, it's helpful to have a headset if you're trying to coordinate efforts with other members of a team or guild.

Rather than tangle up your desk with messy wires, and Logitech has a fine array of wired USB headphones, a wireless headset is a nice option. For £69, Logitech sells the ClearChat PC Wireless, a headset that's lightweight, comfortable, and sounds good.

The ClearChat PC Wireless headset works with Mac OS X and Windows. It has a USB dongle about the size of a flash thumb drive as a transmitter, and communicates using the 2.4GHz radio frequency, similar to band used by a cordless phone.

The ClearChat PC Wireless headset features a plush, padded headband and ear pads that are comfortable to wear for hours at a stretch. The right headphone integrates audio controls; you can adjust volume up and down and also mute the microphone by tapping the outside of the headphone.

The microphone rests on a boom that can swivel up and out of the way when not in use. When you swing it away from your mouth it will briefly light up with a built-in red LED to show you that it's muted. The boom is flexible so you can bend it closer to your mouth; the microphone is noise-canceling.

The ClearChat PC Wireless headphones have a built-in battery that recharges using an included USB cable, and Logitech also included a stand to mount the USB dongle if plugging it directly in to your PC blocks an adjacent USB port. An on/off switch lets you save power when you're not using the headphones; a built-in LED shows you the device's power status (it also lights up when you're charging the battery).

Bluetooth might be preferable for some users who don't want a dongle sticking out of their PC's USB port, but for those who don't mind another device plugged into an available jack, the ClearChat PC Wireless headset offers good quality and comfort at a fair price, with plug-and-play simplicity.
