Anyone make a wireless headset for PC?

I have a feeling I"m going to have to make this, but does anyone know of a wireless headset I can plug into my PC for use with TS Vent or yahoo type programs? There are a lot of bluetooth headsets out there, but I'm not sure if they will work with my PC.

Bluetooth should work just fine. You'll just need a free USB port to plug it into. The last time I had to get a new set of headphones I was considering wireless (got tired of snagging the cable) If I remember correctly I think they can be had at Best Buy for around $70 ish.

If you have a bluetooth USB adapter, then as long as it comes with the Widcomm drivers, you should be able to use any Bluetooth headset with it. I have a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and I use the receiver for that with my headset.

Word of warning: Windows XP SP2 contains it's own Bluetooth stack, but the MS stack is cut down, and cannot talk to Bluetooth headsets! The "Stack" is the bit that handles Bluetooth communications, and sets what type of devices the computer can talk to.
