The Review
We have been looking at a number of different headsets from different companies and this one from Altec Lansing, The AHS-502 is in my opinion a very good stereo head set to use with a computer.

The head set has a nice long cord for attachment. Not as long as some of the others we reviewed but long enough for comfort. This set has an in-line volume control which comes in handy and is connected through two connectors (a microphone and a speaker plug).

The attached microphone is adjustable for closeness to the mouth but I found that you can pull it away to the max and the microphone was sensitive enough to work just fine. For on line games with chatting abilities, this would be a good thing to have. The ear pieces are nice and cushy for comfort but if you wear glasses, this unit will bother your ears after a while because of the pressure on the arms of the glasses.

The sound quality was exquisite and as with all Altec Speakers, the quality is definitely there and you just cant complaint about them. The AHS-502 is relatively inexpensive for what it is and so becomes very affordable by all
