Compact desktop microphone?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

Looking for a more mid ranged microphone for skype calls. I've been using a Logitech Desktop Microphone for ages and I'm used to having the mic on my desktop, as well as something that doesnt take up too much space.

I would get a Zalman clip on, but my headphone cable doesn't go to my sound card so organizing it would be fairly tedious, desktop microphone is definitely what I want to go for, and I'm settled with it, feels right.

Don't need anything ultra high end, just something better than this microphone, I get complaints that it stutters sometimes. The mic is infact physically broken and looks crap, it snapped off its base about a month after I got it about 5 years ago, I've had it jammed into one of those multi-national worldwide plug converter things for a long time as a temporary stand (poor picture, was a screenshot of a video). Other than the occasional noise leak or stutter complaint, it performs pretty well, I'm just looking for options really because I've got some money to spend and want to improve my setup.

Any suggestions? Price range is £30-50 $60-90 ish. Don't mind buying used so suggestions along those lines are fine too.

Thanks, but the one recommended there is the one I already have. It's not great, at all.

Looking for something properly branded, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Behringer are all brands I'm pretty acquainted with.

Just kinda want some decent suggestions in my price range rather than the lower end stuff.
