Hey everyone,

so I had decided I wanted to have a wireless headset and microphone that would work fast, well and wouldn't require me to implement a code to work with Ubuntu 9.04!! I looked into several forums and couldn't find one useful... hence my post today!

So yesterday I went to buy the Creative Digital Wireless Gaming Headset. It is a USB headset which is good if you don't have bluetooth on your computer (like me... haha). I got home without very much hope but at my great surprise it works perfectly.

I plugged in the usb receiver, clicked on the power button... and VOILA!!!

The only thing you must make sure of is that under your sound options the headset is selected (if your auto detect doesn't work).

I tested it with skype... and once again no problem at all... just go into your sound configuration again and select the headset.

The only down point is the control button on the headset itself that do not work with skype as there are no hotkeys.

The cost of the headset btw is about 100$.

Hope this helps! :D
