"…The LifeChat excels in many areas, most of which are centred on design
and audio quality. The headset has leatherette pads around the ear which are
comfortable and block a reasonable amount of exterior noise. They are not
noise-cancelling, as such, but compared to on-ear headsets, audio is much easier
to hear using these headphones. The audio clarity is quite outstanding for this
type of product. Using Windows Live Messenger, we connected to various users
around the world – namely in America and Poland. We also spoke with fellow
Australians as well. During these tests the audio was clear and the quality was
particularly impressive by comparison to other headsets we've run through these
tests.. We also used the headset with the popular PC game communication program,
TeamSpeak and found the audio to be clear and easy to understand.
The foam covered noise-cancelling microphone extends from the left hand side
and is attached to a fully adjustable arm. Voice captured by the microphone is
also clear and easy to understand. We tested the microphone with third party
assessments over various Messenger voice chats and also by recording voice using
Setting up the headset is very easy. By simply plugging the headset into an
available USB port Windows was able to detect it and found basic drivers that
allowed the unit to work. However, to use the Windows Live Messenger integration
features, we had to install the correct drivers and Messenger plug-in from the
provided installation disc.
Once you have the Messenger features installed, you can press the dedicated
button on the in-line remote control to start a web chat. However, doing this
only opens a window which asks you to choose a contact to start a chat with.
From what we can gather, there is no added benefit of this feature at all. It is
just as easy to simply choose you contact using the mouse from within Messenger
and pressing the voice chat button. After several days of using the headset we
gave up on the Messenger shortcut altogether. However, the remote also has
volume and mute controls, which are very handy for volume adjustments
on-the-fly. The LifeChat LX-3000 also has a six foot cable for greater
flexibility and mobility.
On the whole, the headset is comfortable, easy to use and has excellent audio
quality -especially considering the price point. While we found the Messenger
integration to be somewhat unnecessary, others may well find it useful."
