Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 – Impressions

It is hard to find flaws in computer peripherals offered by Microsoft. The Redmond based company has done it yet again with LifeChat LX-3000 headsets. When it is really difficult to select the one from market where each one has some disadvantages or the other, Microsoft has given an almost perfect product to satisfy your senses. Read more below to find out how this gadget stands above rest of its competition from other manufacturers.

While developing an excellent design for LX-3000, Microsoft has taken care to see that quality goes hand in hand with design. The outer covering of the ear-pads is made up of artificial leather that covers the outer noise from entering in and also serves the purpose of enriching its design. We are not  claiming that it cancels out noise completely but it certainly offers an excellent experience. Audio quality is very good with these headsets and if you are using it with Windows Live Messenger – get ready for mind-blowing experience.

Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 offers a foam-covered microphone attached to the adjustable arm on the left side of headphone. The Mic is designed to cancel out noises in the vicinity and thus captures crystal clear voices to be delivered to the other end of conversation. Though this unit works awesome with Windows Live Messenger, other chat programs like GTalk are no exception. There is nothing such as procedure to be followed before installing headsets. You just have to plug in  its 6 feet long cable into USB port and LX-3000 would start working.

The product is accompanied with installation disk that contains specific drivers. These drivers assure perfect integration with Live Messenger and thus, eventually, a perfect experience. Once the installation is complete, press the in-line controller to start a chat. It opens a list with active contacts to start chatting with. In short, this dedicated button doesn’t add any shortcuts as such. The Control also features a button for voice control.
