Commander Sir Samuel Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch once had a Theory of Economic Injustice. Put simply, a poor person can end up spending much more for something over a long period of time than a rich person. That is because a poor person can only buy things cheaply, so things must often be bought again. A rich person, by contrast, can afford the up-front cost of something that lasts for a very long time.

Vimes used the example of boots for his theory.

Computer accessories apply too.

And so with that theory in mind, today I went to Best Buy and bought the most comfortable headset I've ever owned. I'll have this thing around for years, because it is the only headset I've used which 1). fits 2). my giant head 3). comfortably. And so it is the only headset which I feel I could use instead of my desktop speakers (which are Bose -- another investment of remarkable duration and quality).

And the microphone seems to work too. Which is a plus for various multiplayer things.
