Summary: I initially bought this product for gaming as I have a really nice headset with no microphone. The product is very solid, and for the price has amazing quality. The only downside is that it does pick up a lot of background noise. If the mic is isolated or just being used for Skype it is absolutely perfect.
Summary: Great product for use with Dragon dictation software so you don't have to use the headset. The product is compact and doesn't take up much space in my desktop I didn't like to have a headset in order to dictate so the microphone was a great alternative
Summary: Bought for speech-to-text with Dragon Naturally Speaking. It installed without any problems, and it works just fine. I don't use it for recording or for Skype, so I can't vouch for the audio quality. However, the accuracy with Dragon is excellent. It was a very good value!
Summary: I bought this microphone as my main microphone to use to talk to my friends over Skype. You have to be close to the microphone for people to hear. You can buy a better microphone than this, but it will do for $4.
Excerpt: It has a nice design, and a good price and if you use it in a quiet environment it's ok. I was disaapointed in that it sounds "echoey" and when using it in a room with other people it does a great job of picking up all the other conversations going on making the person speaking into it difficult to understand. Forget about using it in a room with grandkids!
