    Depending on what else you want to use the headset for you can go from anything like a single ear'd heatset with mic to something like a gamers headset.

    Having used skype you could use your speakers and a mic but you can't beat a headset. I purchased one from BT shop recently for £5 so hopefully it'll be fine.

    Do you know if you can have the Skype driver and the Voipcheap software running at the same time?
