microphone

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It seems the more and more i look at headsets the ones with mics are junk sound quality. I have a headset for music already (sony studio monitors) i need a microphone. It's going to be used strictly for ventrilo and skype.

I need the microphone to be able to pick up my voice when talking at a whisper so i dont disturb my roommates sleep. A headset with 1 ear speaker and a mic would work good also.

My setup when gaming in the past is using my soccom us navy seals headset with 1 ear speaker and a mic use that for ventrilo, use my speakers for in game sounds. The soccom headset worked great but i lost it.


are there any pros or cons to one or the other?

thank you

I've been asking around here regarding microphone recommendations and 95% of the responses are to get the Zalman Clip-on Mic. It's a standalone so you can choose whatever headphones you'd like and allegedly it is great quality at a low price. I just ordered one off xoxide for under $10 shipped.

I've used the zalman and if you have headphones it works great, if not then your SOL. I currently use a USB logitch and it works well.

My parents have been using this Logitech standalone mic to talk over Skype with my sister in Spain. It's simple and works well.

Otherwise, hop on the Zalman Clip bandwagon .

The Zalman works well for the price, but it will not pick up your voice if you whisper unless you hold it up to your mouth or something.
