SoundTech LightSnake iChat
SoundTech has released the LightSnake iChat, a USB headset. The product separates itself in that like other LightSnake products, the cables illuminate when connected, and flash as audio is being transmitted. The iChat also relies on an in-line dongle, which allows users to replace the included earbuds with their own headphones. The earbuds have a response range of 20Hz to 20KHz; the microphone records input between 100Hz to 16KHz. Dynamic range is measured at approximately 82dB. Despite the product's name, it is compatible with any Windows system between 98 SE and XP, as well as Mac OS 9 and OS X. Amazon is selling the iChat for $20.
