  • from Toronto, ON

Just fine so far and can't beat the price

I needed a USB microphone just for use with Dragon Naturally Speaking voice dictation software and although I have a high quality wireless headset, I don't like wearing it all day. Most of the other microphones seemed very expensive and other user reports were in many cases that they picked up a lot of background noise. I don't work in a high noise environment, but there are times in a home office where other sounds do intrude. I just plugged this mic into a USB port and used it instantly, no muss or fuss. I'm not a "power user" doing webcasts, etc where there are rigorous demands of this mic in terms of rigorously high standards for signal to noise ratio, etc., but for my use, I have no complaints so far, and would buy one again.
