My headset recently broke. Well, one side of the sound output broke, but yeah, hearing things from only one side is annoying and certainly not healthy. I can still hear things via a speaker, and the mic of the headset still works properly too. However, whenever I'm calling someone from my PC, the receiver(s) get an echo, because that little mic also takes the sound it hears from the speaker and sends that sound as well. So when someone speaks, I hear them through the speaker, the mic picks up that sound and sends it back to that someone.
I could buy a new headset, but I honestly enjoy not wearing earplugs or a headset, and I can still hear people outside my room calling me out, and quickly respond to them as well.

So I'm looking for a seperate microphone that can pick up my voice in good quality and filter out any other noises. I can move my speaker a bit so it'll be more like background sound and it won't get recorded as well. Does anyone know any good ones? My budget is €60-70, or averagely $75.

You probably want something like an Antlion ModMic. Attaches to any headphones with included adhesive.

Great audio quality and cheaply priced.

Pair it with a great pair of headphones like the Audio Technica AD series (open) and you'll get good audio quality while still hearing people (assuming audio level isn't deafening high).

I was actually thinking more about a mic that I could place on a table, I didn't consider a mic that I could clip onto my shirt.
Problem I have with this mic is that my movement is limited by the length of the line. A static mic would eventually stop recording my voice if I don't speak loud enough anymore, but I feel a bit more free.

Also, I could plug in a static mic with USB plug in a USB port in the back of my PC, covering the cable. I already have to look and deal with so many cables, so I prefer a static mic with USB plug.

But thanks for showing me this, I like having more options and prices to compare! :love:
