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]
I need a recommendation for a headset to buy to use with my Cisco IP Phone 7960 series, ideally over-the-ear (not over-the-head) and around $50 or less. [more inside]
I'm strongly leaning toward dumping Verizon and switching to Gizmo. What I'm curious about is the actual user experience of making and receiving VOIP calls. Is it be a hassle to be tethered to the computer via a headset? Do I need to leave my computer on all the time? How do I check voicemail (it's got something to do with e-mail, apparently -- does Gizmo e-mail me WAV files or something)? How do I dial out? If I'm making a call to an automated system that requires touch-tone data entry, how would I do this? How expensive and complicated would it be to route my calls to a conventional handset?

I want recommendations for good headphones and a microphone (or headphones and microphone and adapter(s)) that work well for VOIP on my computer, and with regular office telephones, and to listen to music on my computer. [more inside]
