It's relatively easy to getting high levels of echo suppression using  
spectral subtraction methods. In fact even half-duplex cheap  
hands-free phones can achieve that. The tricky part is not to distort  
the "local" voice during double-talk. That's the hard part when you  
can't rely on an adaptive filter.
