I have a Logitech USB headset which I use with Skype. I plugged it in,
told Skype to use it, and it worked. I didn't have to install or
configure anything (other than telling Skype which sound device to use).

The model I have is the ClearChat Comfort USB: http://tinyurl.com/3xtyse

I have Skype set to "Logitech USB Headset (hw:Headset,0)" for sound in
and out, and set to "pulse" for ringing. This way incoming calls ring on
my desktop speakers (via pulseaudio), while the audio for the call
itself goes through the headset (not via pulseaudio). I did try using
pulseaudio for the headset, sound out is fine but I can't get sound in
to work. I haven't spent much time trying to solve it because it works
fine the way I have it set up.

That sounds like the same behaviour I am seeing. Care to elaborate on
how you fixed it?
