See Equipment Requirements and Set Up Information for browser and equipment information. Headset equipment is useful as it lets the microphone focus on a speaker's voice without picking up ambient sound from the physical room you are sitting. It also prevents the audio from the Connect Meeting Room from feeding back into the session and creating an echo.
If VoIP is being used you will be speaking during the session, you should have a USB mic. A combined headphone / mic is ideal. Any good quality headset will work. Common brands include Plantronics, Logitech, Microsoft, and Dynex.
