i was asked this question by a friend and I could not answer so looking for some community feedback.

The worst possible thing to use for a web radio broadcasting is gaming head set ie a mic / headphone combinations and the like but they are used by so many people doing online rado why is this so.

Is it because they do not know how bad they sound, do not care how bad they sound or they do not know any better way?

If your a head set user would love to knows the whys and hows - thanks
