Freetalk Wireless USB Adapter

I've been testing out the freetalk wireless headphone/microphone. The sound quality is great and I've really enjoyed using it for some recent skype interviews.

It's easier than using my own headphones with a USB mic. You don't have to worry about talking directly into the mic. One problem I have with the device is the USB dongle that allows the headphones to be wireless.

As you can see from the photo above, the USB cable that optionaly connects the headphpones to the USB dongle, gets in the way of two ports on my MacBook Pro. The Firewire 400 and Firewire 800 port. It's been suggested that I leave the headphones plugged in all the time so they are always charged up, but I can't do that when it gets in the way of my hard drive cable.



  1. Steve, you are 100% correct about the ports and it is something we are working on. There is a change in the product line coming in Q2 which has a cable prior to the dongle to avoid the USB spacing on macbooks. We started by originally asking apple to widen the space between their ports to accommodate such products but they went silent and put the phone down.

  2. Thanks. I guess I could add in a USB extender for now.
