Excellent for online games I started playing DDO with an RL friend recently, and he wanted to use the integrated voice comm in the game. I've got a 5.1 surround setup in my bedroom and play wirelessly on my HDTV, and I didn't want to mess around with using a headset for sound. So I took the mic portion of the headset and was using that, but apparently my audio was kind of atrocious, and they'd hear a lot of the game sounds and even ambient music in the game.So I purchased this for that situation, because it purports to have noise canceling. My friend immediately noticed the difference and even asked if I'd turned off the music, but the audio quality on this mic really struck home when another party member was trying to adjust his microphone and I asked him to contrast my friend and myself. He said my friend sounded good if a little loud, and I "sounded like I was in the room with him". That was a pretty huge compliment on my audio quality, and the accolades rest solely on this microphone.I was concerned that the mic wouldn't be able to cut it in the realm of online gaming with sound coming out of speakers rather than headphone, but experience tells me that it'll work just fine. And if it works in that kind of environment, then it'll work for the 80% of you who just want to Skype. 5Great microphone, even though the receiver is a bit flimsy... I purchased this microphone back in January of 2010 and wound up receiving a good 5+ years of usage. I used this primarily for communication on my Windows 7 64-bit PC and the sound came out crystal clear on the other end. I absolutely loved the fact that you could turn it off by a tap of a button. The light indicator notifies you whether it's on or off. I also loved that you could adjust the receiver either up or down depending on where you need to point it. The length of the cord was perfect as well.Unfortunately, all it took was one little mistake by accidentally dropping it on the carpeted floor. The receiving part of it was busted, leaving exposed wiring. It would no longer stand in an upright position. I also believe that, since these were produced starting in 2001, that it is probably NOT USB 3.0 compatible.Overall, this was a great microphone to have. 5incredible convenience and value for Dragon dictation an office setting I recently began using Dragon NaturallySpeaking at the office to minimize the typing and use of the mouse that were causing tendinitis in my wrists. Initially, I tried the analog microphone that was packaged with the software, and then a moderately priced USB microphone. Both had a headset with a microphone sticking off to the side. Although the voice-recognition with these was fine, I found it incredibly inconvenient and awkward to use them because I work in environments with a lot of interruptions, and because I often find as I am writing an e-mail or dictating a memo that I need to move a few feet away to look for relevant documents. The headsets were cumbersome; I felt stupid wearing them when someone was in my office talking to me; and I was constantly tripping over the cable as I tried to move around. I also found having something on my head and ears for hours at a time to be uncomfortable.So I decided to try this magical device. It sits comfortably in front of my monitor; I no longer trip over the cable because the microphone does not move around. When someone comes into my office, I don't feel as if I have to move or hide the microphone to avoid distracting the other person, and the on/off button allows me to quickly switch it off rather than having to say "microphone off" (dorky and also time-consuming, because you have to wait to make sure that Dragon recognized the command) or use the mouse to click on the icon that turns the software off. For my purposes, the difference between this microphone and the headset versions is like night and day.I will mention a couple of downsides: first, I would say that the recognition is slightly worse then with a good headset USB microphone - perhaps 95% with this versus 98% with the best headset microphone; second, if you want to use the Dragon feature where it reads back what you have dictated, you'll need a headset microphone or another way to listen. I literally never use that feature, so for me the logistical advantages of this microphone far outweigh the slight decrease in speech recognition accuracy. 5A nice, simple mic I originally purchased this product to do voice recording for video projects, but this isn't really a good quality microphone for that sort of work. Instead, i now use this microphone for Skype calling and the like when I am in quiet environments. The mic is still leaps an bounds better than the built in unit on my laptop, and it even beats the boom mic on my gaming headset when I feel like playing online games with friends.That being said, there is very little protection on this mic against background noise, so it is always a good idea to make sure you are adjusting sensitivity settings with programs like Skype so you aren't blowing out anyone's ear drums. Another thing that bothered me was that I ended up having to return my original mic because it arrived broken. The boom is very weak just above the point where the hinge meets the base stand, and it is likely to snap with little effort. I would imagine that a tumble off my desk would do another one in if I'm not careful. At least Amazon was great about sending me another one very quickly.The cord is a nice length, and the base stand has a mute button for when you want to go silent, but other than that there are no controls on the microphone itself. The logitech is a good all around device, but don't expect to be blown away by audio quality. I ended up getting a second mic which is a blue yeti, and I am loving that for voice recording. Still, this should be good enough for most users who need a stand alone mic. 4Has worked great for me, but not perfect. I bought one of these years ago because I was generally not a fan of wearing a headset and preferred to simply use the nice speakers I had for my PC instead of a headset for communication while gaming. While the audio on this was pretty good, unfortunately even with the supposed noise cancellation and the settings in Windows to prevent it, there was still not enough of that to stop this mic from picking up the sound from the speakers. This resulted in people complaining of echoing and hearing my audio over the voice comms. So in the end, even though I bought this to avoid using a headset or headphones, I still had to use a pair of headphones when gaming with friends.Aside from that though the microphone had great pick up. My voice always came in nice and clear to those on the call with me, and the sensitivity on the mic was truly impressive. I have a mechanical clock with chimes in the living room which is down the hall and around the corner, but whenever it went off people on the call could hear it just fine. If I went to the kitchen to get something they could hear the fridge shut or the drawers sliding open and closed, even though the kitchen was even further than the living room. It seemed this little mic could clearly pick up just about any sound from anywhere in the house. This also meant that there would be problems however, as my phone going off across the room would be really irritating to people, or if I bumped the desk the mic was on the resulting sound on their end was pretty loud. In the end though it served me very well for 7 years before I finally replaced it.In the end I decided that if I had to wear headphones anyways, I might as well get a really nice pair. And since the best gaming headsets all have mics attached I ended up getting a headset. At first I just used them as headphones, but one day I did try the mic portion of it and the people on the call said the vocal quality was much better and it was no longer picking up all the background noise either. So, I eventually switched to the headset mic and this now just hangs out in a drawer as a back up. It did the job well for years though, but there are better options. (especially since I see the price is over $100 now? I paid waaaaaaay less than that when I bought it) 4hard to find, have to buy used Why Logitech stopped making this microphone is beyond me. I have two of them, one I bought new and the other refurbed because logitech doesn't make them anymore.The sound quality is great, it looks like a pro microphone on my desktop. I've been using them for years for online meetings. They hold up really well and sound great.The mute button lights up when the microphone is un-muted so you won't make any boo boos.Worth buying one used / refurbed, nothing touches this microphone for looks / usefulness. 5Perfect for Desktop recording and Dragon Speech Recognition I have used Creative Sound cards and good quality headsets to get good enough sound quality to make Dragon Naturally Speaking work well.On-board sound is often not high quality enough for good results. A good aftermarket Creative labs sound card that is better than on board sound can cost $50-100 -- or even several hundreds.This simple, light, unobtrusive desktop microphone makes recording audio notes and doing Dragon dictation at your desk ridiculously easy.Even in my office with a train passing by, no problems with speech recognition.I was not using the Dragon software I paid for. Who wants to sit at their desk wearing a cordless headest and take it on and off, over and over?This sits on the corner of my desk and I dictate when I want by just activating the mic. Awesome.This thing is amazing. I bought another for my home computer for the same reason.It probably is not as good as a $100-300 desktop mic for podcasting or recording music, like the excellent Blue Yeti Mic (amazing for recording music and singing), but it is a hands-free godsend for those of us who like to dictate rather than type all of the time.Cannot recommend it highly enough for its intended purpose. This thing should eb sold with Dragon Naturally Speaking. Its that good. 5Usable for voice recognition I purchased this microphone as a substitute for a headset using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11. The first delivery did not work, so I exchanged and hoped for the best. The replacement did work much better so the original delivery was clearly defective.As for voice recognition results, it is not quite on a par with a decent headset but can be quite convenient. It can be a pain in the neck to constantly be putting on and taking off a headset. It seems to respond slower and have somewhat less accuracy than a headset but as a trade-off it is much more convenient. So, overall I am very happy with this product and if you are using voice recognition and looking for a substitute for a headset you will find this microphone will work well.Edit:I have compared this microphone, solely for voice recognition purposes, with several Dynex microphones, both desktop and headset Dynex models. I believe the Dynex microphone element is more effective as far as my experience has been, for voice recognition. this applies to both Dynex headsets and desktop microphones. There have been some good deals for Dynex microphones in the "used" category and I have found them to be excellent value purchases. 4VIDEO: Audio Comparisons Review! Must WATCH! Hey guys,I figured this would help you to see the difference in audio quality between the USB Microphone, a Logitech C910 Webcam Microphone, and a built in laptop microphone.The USB microphone is far superior. Be sure to watch the video below, and if this review was helpful, THUMBS it up so other people can see it.[...] 5Logitech USB Desktop Mic Great for Skype Purchased through Amazon, this Logitech Desktop Microphone combines the best of the old and new. My iMac internal placement is at the top of the chassis and receives audio from above. I realized this when I covered the opening with Velcro one day and could not get sound in on Skype! Immediately I went to Amazon and read the reviews for this Logitech mic.Setup was a breeze. I plugged the desktop mic into my USB hub. The mic has a front green on-off button, so it's easy to mute the mic. I checked my Sound Preference. The device showed up and I selected it immediately, adjusting the input sensitivity to a perfect level, awaiting a Skype contact. The mic is very light and can be pulled by the long cord, like the tail wagging the dog. This occurs with many such lightweight devices.My remedy is to secure it with Velcro to a can of veggies This brings the mic head nearer my mouth.Last night's test with friends in South Carolina went well. They reported unusual clarity and sensitivity to ambient sounds in the room. I feel that such a USB microphone produces better sound than one attached to a mic-in or audio in jack.Pros: USB input, clear speech reproduction, sensitive; adjustable boom, lights when turned on, long cord.Cons: lightweight device, easily moved without support.Overall: Great USB mic for those wishing to replace a poorly located or small computer mic. 5
