My headset broke. Now I want a new one. Nothing fancy, just something that can put sound in both ears and a mic near my mouth so that I can put my pointless chatter in other ears. A volume controller on the cord would be nice, as would a really really long cord.
The behind the ears design is simply a bad design. The connector breaks too easily, since it's essentially a very small bit of plastic getting repeatedly stressed anytime I take my headset on or off. Then the wire gets worn out leading to the sound getting intermitent before I finally just tear the thing apart and throw it into another room. Apparently starting my birthday by shoveling until my fingers stop hurting, then doing it again, then taking a cold hour train ride to be half an hour late for an open house for a master's in public policy when it's 9 degrees out and windy, then taking the same ride back, puts me in a bad mood. On the bright side, I might someday take part in writing your tax code, so be glad that I will apply the same precise language and short, to-the-point structure of my blog, to your taxes.
