    Jabra GN9330e

    It's meant to be a wireless headset to connect to a phone, and the wireless equipment inside it is based on DECT 6.0 GHz technology, like most modern cordless phones. Essentially, you have guaranteed clarity within a 300ish foot range of the base station - overkill, really, but you're interacting with your computer... and need the highest quality for that.

    A lot of other wireless solutions are going to be based around Bluetooth - which has much lower transmission power and range, and can be very sensitive to placement, antenna angles, and such. Bluetooth as a rule is in general less reliable than other solutions.

    I own one of these Jabra headsets and it works very well. It's very expensive, but worth the money.

    I use the Plantronics CS50-USB Wireless Headset for Dragon and Skype (headset). Plantronics also has very good tech support.

    Probably another good suggestion. If it's cheaper than the Jabra, go with it. I've had good luck with Plantronics headsets as well.
