I've received a couple of requests for my recommendation on what headphones or headset to buy for a computer. I am not an expert and I do not endorse any one brand, but these are what I have and it works well for what I use them, Web Forums, webinars, Online Meetings and listening to music. Since they have a mic you can also use them to speak as well as listen (Skype and or VoIP). I bought them on Amazon (again no endorsement) because they seemed to have the best price.

The price may vary, but the last time I checked they cost around $38.

One piece of advice
, if you want to hunt around for a good deal on headphones, make sure you are comparing apples to apples or headsets to headsets in this case - make sure you verify the item model number; you may have to hunt for it, but it's worth it!
- Product Dimensions: 7.8 x 3.3 x 8.8 inches ; 8.8 ounces

Let me know what you think!
Or if you are using another headset - which one and do you like it?
