Got it in the mail today, looks to be pretty good quality, it says it uses "active noise-cancellation and amplification technology", haven't tried it with voice-recognition software yet so I dunno, but hey, it was free! They sent me an e-mail about 3 weeks ago saying it was on its way, now that's slow shipping!

How did you get it free?
is it still free?

You just sign up at visitalk. Heres a link... It expires tomorrow though... I'm still waiting on my headset. :-(

yep i got mine awhile back..works pretty well.
05-30-2000, 07:18 PM
i got mine a month or so back...

I got mine about 1.5 weeks ago.
Anybody know if there is a connector I can get to make the 2 plugs on the headphones (speaker and mic) one plug so I can use it on my phone?
Well... it's off to Radio Shack I go. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

I'm still wating to, I forgot I even signed up for it. I don't know why it's taking so long... is a 2 month wait normal?

I still want to have the separate plugs to use on my computer. I just want a plug to be able to use it with my phone when I want to. It WOULD actually be possible to splice then together (not the way abatardi mentions, of course http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif) but that is the reason why I wouldn't want to.
calaxer19 yes. It is.

My mailbox has been busy lately. Got my free coffee, chocolate rice krispy treats last week. Got my rocketboard yesterday and today the visitalk headset. It's great to be a GotApexer http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I think I know what you're talking about - you want to plug it into the headphone connection that a lot of portable phones have, right? The one's I have seen have been what looks like a 1/16th of an inch connector (standard headphone jack is 1/8th I think). I'm not sure how it's wired but I'll bet you could get one of those plugs from RadioShack's catalog, along with 2 female 1/8th inch mono plugs that you could plug the end of the headset into - the soldering's up to you. Then again, with the amount RadioShack overcharges for their stuff, might be cheaper just to buy a headset... Man, I worked for a computer reseller and we bought from a source called I think "Krista Micro", sold cables and connectors in bulk, like 100 to 500 at a time, stuff like the ps/2 to AT converters that sell at CompUsa for $5.99... cost literally $0.25 from this catalog in bulk, 6 foot printer cables were like $.75 I can't bealive how much the stores mark this junk up.
