I'm currently using a plantronics mic that my dad got.

It has two jacks; one for headphones and the other for the mic.

Unfortunately the mic part doesn't seem to work, or I don't have it setup correctly.

If you play BF2 and are actually able to talk to your squad mates, what mic do you use?

Thanks

LC

I use these, from Logitech. Newegg.com - Logitech 980231-0403 Gold Plated Audio Connectors Circumaural Precision PC Gaming Headset

I've never used voice in BF2, but this headset works fantastically in TF2, CS:S, and CoD4.

Yeah, I've got the same headphones, they work beautifully. Only thing you gotta watch out for is be sure you're wearing both earpieces centered on your ears, otherwise your ears will start to hurt after awhile.

I used those but found the bass lacking...I guess they "worked". Currently I am using Logitech usb headphones & they reproduce all ranges adequetly..

That looks good, but I think I would like a USB headset so I only had one cord to deal with.

The plantronics headset I'm using now has separate cords for headset and mic (actually a single cord that diverges into two), that get tangled frequently.

For those of you that have usb headsets, are there any issues with it not being plugged into audio and mic jacks?

I usually prefer USB, but I don't mind this particular setup at all. The mic/headphone cords don't diverge until about 6 inches from the end, so there's really no way to tangle them.

If you ask me, 5.1 (or any surround sound for that matter) in headphones is a complete joke.

I personally recommend investing in a fair quality USB headset. I use the one that came with my Rosetta Stone package, and it is quite nice. I use it all the time, from watching movies, to listening to music, to playing game. USB's will probably give you the best quality.

I have had no issues with my logitech, ever. I used to use a set of creative fatality that I got on the cheap off ebay($15), when I had an x-fi card, but since I switched to Vista, I found the usb set worked better with its own dedicated sound processor. I have these, & they are comfortable enough, have decent sound reproduction & the mic actually works great.
