Over the ear headphones, not earbuds.
I wanted to avoid a mic just because headsets with mics tend to be a bit too gear-heavy, I want something sleek and streamlined that's more like a simple strap without protrusions that I could use comfortably while laying down.
I did buy a headphone jack to USB dongle (with a mic plug) a couple weeks ago. I was just looking for something of nice quality that would eliminate devices in-between devices.
I wanted something nice, but I got impatient and impulsive and went ahead and bought these
Yeah, tbh the dongles are kind of a pain, especially if you move your laptop around a lot. We have a laptop set up in the living room with a 3.5mm to USB dongle so it can be connected to the stereo tuner, but it comes loose all the time. I'm also having flashbacks to my old laptop which was/ still is "on life support". It had a USB dongle with a keyboard and mouse plugged in, as well as an external hard drive. I spilled coffee on it, and it kind of messed up the keyboard, and broke the touch pad.
But yeah, those headphones look pretty nice actually. I bought these last winter when I decided to record LPs and whatnot, and it's decent, but I think I like yours better, and they are cheaper. This is listed at $22 here, but I unfortunately paid $30 for them at Staples.
