Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Headset

Headset:
"The only downside is that the headset band is somewhat bulky and interferes with earpieces of glasses, although it's possible to get it to work."
_
"The only early problem I had was that the headset was a bit tight, but I found by trial and error a position that worked for me, and I now find the headset very comfortable."
_
"My first headset went eventually developed some problems due to corrosion from the sweat and spit."
_
"Great improvement over my previous omni-directional headset."
_
"If you do opt to purchase this headset I highly recommend the Tetra-Teknica XFFZ5P-BLK Lapel & Headset Microphone Windscreen, which not only fits this headset, but the Shure models too."
_
"She thinks this is as good as the Shure headset she normally uses."
_
"Excellent, light-weight, portable and easy-to-use headset mic for intimate performance settings."

Microphone

Microphone:
"I wanted something with good physical quality, good sound quality, and most importantly a microphone that was NOT set up to use the computer's sound card 'mic' input; sound card mic inputs are usually designed to work with cheap cermet electret mic elements, and not only are those mics not too great in terms of sound quality, but the sound card manufacturers seem to dumb down the mic preamps in expectation of a low quality mic signal."
_
"Second, despite training Dragon several times for accuracy with this mic, the accuracy is terrible, much worse than the mic I was replacing it with."
_
"I recently bought this microphone for Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Medical Edition), after I broke the mini-plug on the Sennheiser ME3 that I had been using."
_
"i know several people that recommended this microphone and they all have the same problem with the neck."
_
"These mics really do sound good as you would expect any mic from Audio-Technica, especially a dynamic mic, to."
_
"It's a decent microphone."
_
"Sounds good, a good microphone, but you need to be right up on it."
_
"I use it for mic input on a Motif XF for vocoder work and it perfectly picks up even a whisper."
_
"However, according to Audio-Technica tech support, it would not be damaged if connected to a mic preamp that has phantom power."
