Excerpt: The microphone sits on the table near the keyboard so that when we are using Skype we dont have to put a microphone on my little boy so that his grandparents can hear him talking. This picks up our words from a good foot away. Very impressed.
Excerpt: I bought this for £9.99 in Staples and I must say its a great buy, I sometimes use the mic for skype but I also use it for voice dubbing. The mic isnt very sensitive but the quality is excellent, also its in stereo and not mono, and its a very good size.
Excerpt: I bought this for using with VOIP (Skype), but its just not up to the job. Not sensitive enough and frequency range seems poor at top end. You need to get up close for it to work properly, e.g. an inch or less. 2 stars because it works. But only just.
Excerpt: Rubbish. Doesnt pick up a sound unless held right in front of the mouth. It doesnt seem to be the pc microphone settings, others work fine. Perhaps I have a faulty unit? I would suggest not risking buying one given the irritation I feel now having trusted more positive reviews!
