The headset is good quality.

The GameVoice voice command software is pretty good.

The hockey puck is useless unless you have freinds playing and using GV also.

If you just want a headset, yuo can buy that one from Plantronics directly.

If you just want voice command software, www.gamecommander.com  is better, and it works with RogerWilco, so you can talk to most people in Aces High.

I would not reccomend buying the GameVoice.

Headphones are suprisinggly good, mike pics up OK and easy to position too. I haven't used the unit itself yet but what attracted me to it was the voice commands (saw in use by a friend) which expands Precision Pro meagre 8 buttons... And it was cheap :D

Two friends of mine bought those little puck things...and love them, I'm chatting with them using the GameVoice software and its quite nice.  Just got DSL hooked up here so voice quality is much better...with the slow/modem option enabled, everyone sounded as though they were on the Witness Protection program   :)

Gamevoice is useless in AH.  Highly reccomend GameCommander 2   :)

Both have free trial just need to give them a try.
Have this headset and really like it  :)

The GameVoice is only good if you intend to use voice commands as well as comms. If you just want comms and don't need the voice commands there is no need to buy the GV. However, I have one and I do like the voice commands because my Joystick only has 8 buttons.
