Creative HS800 Fatal1ty Gaming Headset with Detach&hellip by Creative Labs
The sound is decent enough, as is the microphone quality. Neither are outstanding but both adequately perform for a gaming headset.

As someone at the very start of my studies in this language, learning the new scripts seemed daunting and I wondered how on Earth I could remember all of the characters. This workbook somehow made it easily done within a couple of weeks of very light study. While it may suit some to go on the internet and use sites for it, I found that the practice given in this book and the help it gives to a poor penman like myself could not be substituted for some Flash application or the like. The exercises involve simply writing out the hiragana, then using them in words, then later using them in sentences (while teaching you very basic punctuation and grammar) and even a wordsearch.
