Some question on wireless headsets.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking of buying wireless, and when I searched around here I found some threads from back in 07/08 that seemed to agree that wireless universally have static.
Does that issue still exist or has it been mitigated/eliminated?

Also, generally speaking, do wireless have OK battery life? I use my PC for very long periods, some days basically from 7-9 in the morning to midnight or later with only a few breaks, so is there a general time that it takes for the headsets to recharge?
Do wireless headsets use the kind of batteries (I forget what they're called) that you can basically recharge forever without having to worry about them dying?

Is there any chance of wireless internet interference (I used wired ATM, but on another PC it's usually wireless)?

I'm basically trying to look at all the pros/cons of wired vs. wireless right now.

Since you say 'PC for very long periods' i would deff not recommend a wireless headset. I had one for xbox and I did not play much and found myself replacing the batteries often. They have recharge batteries and recharge headsets but if you want a good quality one that you can use without having to worry about replacing the batteries, just get a wired headset. There is nothing worse than coordinating with your team on BF3 and all of the sudden your headset cuts out.

Well unless there are any wireless headsets that can last 8+ hours withotu a long recharge time, then yeah, wired is probably going to be better for me.

Are there any headset brands that are held in high regard?
