Elsewhere hearabouts I’ve reviewed a Plantronics .Audio 615m which is my favorite USB headset for use with soft phones. This morning an alert from BUY.COM offered the Plantronics GameCom X10 headset for just $9.99! Free shipping, too.
This variant is a similar design to the 615m, but terminated in a 3 conductor plug for use with a PC sound card. That makes it suitable for use with laptop audio interfaces, given a little pigtail adapter that breaks out the mic & headset signals to separate plugs. These adapters are readily available.
Neither the seller nor manufacturers web sites specifies the length of the cable, but they are pictured connecting to the hand-held controller on the game console. By implication the cable is shortish, most likely suitable for laptop or netbook use, but not desktops.
FWIW, MSRP is $24.95.
