I'm tempted to get some new headphones, but ones with a mic. But all the headsets are boring black headsets!
@ebel I would imagine there are some cool headsets targeted at gaming? Game streams often include the player's face in an effort to keep gaming as uninclusive as possible.
@freakazoid There are! 🙂 But even still, I don't like a lot of those style. It's all so agressive & macho.
(And a friend has already sent me photos of pink cat ear headphones. 🤣 That's too far the other way!)
@ebel It turns out the company that made my pilot headset also makes them for PCs. They are not cheap. You can have any color you like as long as it's mint green. https://store.davidclark.com/computer-headsets/model-h-pc-40642g-01
@ebel There are also adapters so if you find a used aviation headset you like you could also use that. I'm tempted to get one myself, since I don't use my headset for flying anymore and it would be cool to use it on the computer. Aviation headsets aren't stereo, though, so it would just be for Zoom calls or whatever.
@ebel Maybe you could use a mic like this with some stylish headphones https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BoomProMic--v-moda-boompro-microphone-communication-mic-for-headphones
@robbystk oooooh, that's very clever! It hadn't occured to me that you could do that.
