I am typing this entry whilst trying out my new headphones a set of Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000’s,
…and I have to say I am very impressed so far with the sound quality. I am no audiophile at all but the music is very crisp and clear, and most of all the background noise has disappeared due to the generous cups that envelope my ears :). Although it feels odd to have these type of headphones as I am used to my Bose in ear phones for listening to music.
Of course these will come into there own for chatting to friends and colleagues via messenger.
One thing to mention was the install on my Vista notebook, I plugged them into a USB slot, Vista detected them within 2s and installed the drivers automatically and I had them setup and working within a few more seconds. Which all in all was a great and trouble free experience. I would highly recommend these to anyone wanting to listen to music, make calls or chat on there PC.
One minor thing where the experience could be improved ever so slightly is that when I hover over the little speaker in the notification (or System Tray), it says I am running Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000,great. However the icon is the same standard speaker one rather than the headphone one!
Currently listening to a little bit of Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix, which sounds amazing 🙂
