Dusted off an old mic

October 27th, 2014 at 05:50 am

My headset is finally breaking apart. The padding has disintegrated, and what's left hurts my ears when I wear it. More recently, I also accidentally dripped ranch dressing into one of the ears. I cleaned it the best I could but it still soaked into one of the earphones.

So I figure it's high time I replaced it. I shopped around for what I think is the best solution for me, but ultimately decided to just break out my existing earbuds and dusted an old mic I had sitting around.

The reason I didn't use all that before is because the headset was more convenient, combining both earphone and mic at the same time. The new setup splits it into two separate items again, BUT at least there is no new cost involved.

On another note, the weather is finally getting cold enough that I may need to cut the heater on at nights. It's not so much that I am freezing but I do sleep poorly if I get too hot or too cold. Last night was cold enough that I don't think I slept well....

Luckily, I don't think I have to do much more than pull out my old room heater, and it doesn't use much electricity for the temperature I need.

I am trying really hard to stay frugal. Some days, I do better than others. Other than that, my life is still the same as always.

    Was this a computer microphone/headset? I've ruined a few pairs of those because of my habit of eating at the computer ..

    Haha yes, and I also tend to eat in front of the computer soooo there's that. This is the first time that's happened to me though. Normally, I take good care of my computer gear.
