Microsoft LifeChat LX-2000 Review


Microsoft LifeChat LX-2000

 

Like the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 the Microsoft LifeChat LX-2000 is a combined Headset & Microphone, the only difference between the LX-3000 & the LX-2000 is that the LX-2000 is mainly a headset to use with a Laptop,  as it features a behind the head style headband and the Headset folds up and fits in an included case, like the LX-3000 the LX-2000 also sports an in-line remote, but it’s a little more basic compared to the LX-3000 and the LX-2000 sports a pair of 3.5mm plugs that go into the soundcard Headphone & Microphone ports so it’s not as neat a solution as the LX-3000 that uses a USB Port for connection, but for a headset that is more suited to a Laptop or Netbook it does save a USB Port that are rare on portable devices.

Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Review


Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000

This is my first review post in a while, and I’ve decided to do a review of the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Headset & Microphone.  While this headset isn’t a top of the range headset it’s ideal for use as a gaming headset with or without the use of the Microphone, for listening to music while  working, watching movies, YouTube videos or DVD’s, Video chatting using Google Hangouts or Skype and for voice recognition Dictation.

The Headset connects to a PC or Laptop via a standard USB cable and has an in-line remote has a volume Up and Volume Down button, a Microphone Mute Button and a Call button for Windows Live Messenger, but as far as I can see it doesn’t seem to work with the Windows 8 version of Skype or any other  Windows 8 Voice Messaging app, it may work with Desktop  versions of Skype etc. but it still should work with Skype etc. without the use of the Call Button.

I purchased the Headset for use while Gaming or watching YouTube videos instead of using the ear-buds that came with my phone.
