Which USB headset? Sample recording of Microsoft LX-3000

If you are recording audio directly into your PC for making online presentations, podcasts, audio feedback or even for a live webinar or Google Hangout then the quality of your microphone will make a massive difference to the final quality of the audio. I would always recommend using a USB headset instaed of the cheaper ones which plug into the mic socket on your PC. I’m not an expert on what the market has to offer in this area but I’m pretty happy with the  Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 that we use here in the office, though I’d be keen to hear about what anyone else might be using. See below for a sample recording .
