Headset with a USB jack instead of an audio 3.5mm or whatever size jack.

 

Can then fly on flight simulator and listen to ATC in headset and aircraft noises on speakers.

 

As ATC, can hear pilot radio comms through headset and VRC sounds (beeps and such) through speakers.

 

Don't need to hold the mike as it sits on your head. so you can do useful things like type, use a mouse, and talk through the mike at the same time.

 

Otherwise you might find the need to grow a third hand.

A USB headset (or a non-USB headset with a second sound card) is the only choice for me. The reason for either USB or a second sound card is so that ATC can be routed to my ears and airplane sounds to my speakers. That makes much easier to hear ATC than if both come through the speakers.

 

Also, a hand-held mic. will add some delay to your readbacks.

Guys, I know the advantages and disadvantages of using Hand Mic. Yes I'm also using headset. The things is that in real life this mic is used in Bulgarian ATM and I wanted to try it in VATSIM. Using EuroScope, where almost everything is done via the mouse and less and less pilots use text, I don't have problem with "shortage" of hands. Even now I'm holding the mouse and pressing the PTT, so your hand is always used to transmit, so it doesn't have any big difference if it on the keyboard or holding the mic and you can always switch to headset at any time. My question was if any one had one or have made one
