    Will be looking for a new headset for daughter No.2's 'puter shortly, is there any performance benefits to going for one of the new USB sets as opposed to the normal plug into soundcard type (bearing in mind once its plugged in, it stays put)?

    I know the benefits to ANY headset is that the missus will not have to hear System of a Down at full volume every time daughter's bedroom door is open (although I like them so much, going to their concert with her in Manchester).

    I would go with a usb 2.0, you may just get better sound, i think that the usual soundcard mic jack is usually just analog, i think the usb one would be digital.
