My father has severe hearing loss (I'm pretty sure he hasn't heard my voice in the last 10 years). What we would really like is a headset that could plug into either his computer or his iPhone (preferably both) and allow him to both hear and talk with a mic. Basic criteria are: over the ear and mic. My brother is very into the gaming community and has his eyes on a headset but I hope someone here has more insight on what helps with hearing impaired.

Can anyone suggest a great ear-bud headset for an android phone that has a high quality mic for phone conversations?
I'm in a different location than most of my co-workers and spend a lot of time on conference calls. I have a problem with different participants being at different volume levels. I'm constantly adjusting the volume but still end up missing what the quieter participants say (generally those calling in using office phones in other locations) and getting my ears blasted by the louder participants (generally those calling using their personal cell phones). What I need is a headset with that will normalize the volumes of the different callers. Is there such a thing? Any recommendations? [more inside]

There's only one 3.8mm jack that connects the headset to the controller (which received the audio from the XBOX via bluetooth or something similar). Normally, a PC headset with chat would have connectors for both audio out and mic in on the PC. I can't find a definitive answer online anywhere.

For the last two years I have been trying to implement what I think is a pretty straightforward VOIP solution which has in turn probably taken around twelve years off my life. We operate a great IP-PABX system in our 10-person Mac-Laptop based office that we are very happy with, and for the last three years have been running IP handsets but have been desperately seeking a solution that would enable us to use softphones with wireless headsets (non-bluetooth). Has anyone here done anything similar with a degree of success? My list of demands is as follow: [more inside]
I really want to combine my headphones with my microphone so that I can use it as a headset on my home phone. So I got a 3.5mm splitter and a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter so that I can plug the mic and headset together, then reduce it to 2.5mm so it can plug into my phone. It doesn't work. Why?

I've just upgraded a G5 tower from 10.2.x to 10.5.7. The upgrade went off without a hitch... but... i do have a problem using my Logitech USB 350 headset with the system now. When making a call with Skype, for example, the headset will typically work for a while (several minutes) before suddenly throwing out massive amounts of horrible noise via the mike channel. When this happens, I can hear the other side of the conversation just fine, they however can't hear anything except an aneurysm-inducing noise. If I hang-up and restart the connection, the game repeats. Sometime the noise sets in sooner, sometimes later - however, it always sets in. Facts: 1.) This headset worked without a hitch before the upgrade (from 10.2.x). 2.) Audio settings on a system level and within Skype are correct. Does anyone have any clue as to what is going on and what might remedy the situation?
