Suggested Headset Microphones for Content Authors

We recommend that you use a headset microphone instead of a desktop microphone in order to minimize feedback noise when your microphone is on. Features for headset microphones should include noise-canceling and in-line volume and mute controls. You may purchase headset microphones online or in-store through electronics or office suppliers. Quality headset microphones can be purchased for about $20 and use the standard audio jacks. Sample brands include:

  • Logitech Premium Stereo Headset (P/N 980369-0403)
    [can be purchased for <$20]
  • Altec Lansing (AHS20)
  • Plantronics (AUD60)
  • Sony (DR-140UP)

You can also buy quality USB headset/microphones. They usually start around $30. Examples are

  • Logitech Premium USB Headset 350
  • Plantronics (DSP500)

Depending on departmental policy, faculty and staff may be able to request a headset microphone with departmental funds.
