These look like the cheap models they give away on flights. The bracket and/or the foam will probably break apart in no time.

Least it's a brand name. In for one. I doubt it has 2 connectors for PC's.

Actually has anyone successfully used these combo jacks on a pc with a combo jack?

I know they're cheap and flimsy but i'm curious how well those inline mics work. i've never used one. I have an image of people sitting and talking on the phone while holding the inline mic infront of their mouth. if you just let it dangle like normal can people actually hear you properly?

How would i sound to other people using this $4 headset vs sitting in front of my laptop (normal $800 dell) using the built in laptop microphone.

Picked one up from yesterday after reading this on RFD. Been using it on Skype and have not heard complaints. For the price, you can go wrong.

In most video conferences when there is someone that sounds awful from a crappy mic, nobody complains and just tolerates it but to everyone else you are still the guy with the crappy mic.

Also you wrote "you can go wrong" lol. Freudian slip?

I wonder if these work on PS4? They're already miles above the crappy mic they give you in the box.

In for 2. $4 each, what the heck...good enough for video calls. Probably more comfortable than those in-ear buds that come with the phone.

Would be great for kids, even though there's no volume limiter. Great for distanced learning video calls for them.

If it gets ruined it's only $4.
