Above and it was very pronounced. It should be noted that Liz had some echo on her side which we mostly edited out but that was not because of the mic. These are used by most manufacturers when they add a detachable cable to their headphones. Even a cheap Logitech webcam works absolutely fine for a gaming mic. Modmic - Slightly better quality mic with wire mess, and maybe hard time putting on headphones that do not have nice flat surfaces. See for program details Term for New Gear begins on date of purchase but does not replace the store return policy or manufacturer coverage. This is to be expected with an in-line mic.
It's ruggedly built to handle touring, with a frequency response tailored for clear reproduction of vocals. Preferred Music - A fair amount of dubstep, some rap, but pretty much everything. So my old cheap-o headset finally kicked the bucket. In general tab it shows jack. I'll be using these headphones mainly for gaming and some music on the side. As I mentioned with the mute function, there is a bit of noise transference down the cable. I had to move down the input level to make sure that I didn't clip.
While I prefer this aesthetically, there were times when I would have the mic placed too close to my mouth and it was an issue. This is about as good as the BoomPro mic can sound for podcasting without extensive at least more extensive than me post-production capability. Once I got my placement and clipping issues worked out, I found I could get very good sound quality from the BoomPro. The uses here are dubious. While I use headsets for calls, I don't see myself carrying around such a large mic and compatible headphones for such use. There are really three uses for the BoomPro mic that make sense to me - Skype and similar services, gaming, and podcasting. The headphones work just fine, the moment I plugged it in the sound came to my headphones, but the computer just keeps using the integrated mic instead of the one on the cable.
. More expensive V-Moda Boom Pro - No wire mess with not that good mic. Any indication, either internally or from another, that bias has entered into his review will be immediately investigated. This is not the case. Extraneous noises are something to be worried about no matter what microphone you use.
Click on Speakers tab, likely already there, click on your headset, assuming its plugged in, click on properties. But remember that during Skype calls I was repeatedly and universally told that the mic sounded better than even the recordings I made. It kills your mic but does leave behind a telltale click on your recording. The BoomPro in-line controls adjust volume and can mute the mic. I wasn't able to test out the gaming aspect as I don't online game any more.
Universally I was told the mic sounded great. Its my personal preference, but unless you are a professional streamer, that difference in quality between BoomPro and Modmic is not worth the price nor the annoyance of extra wires. The volume just seems to be a thing they tacked on with very little real world use. It's ruggedly built to handle touring, with a frequency response tailored for clear reproduction of vocals. Liz and I both used the BoomPro mics and I did some tests to make sure that the mics were both at the right distance from our mouths.
The key, then, is to use the clip on the back of the inline controls. I don't usually listen to music much, so I'm still exploring genres I may be interested in. The mute button, on the other hand, is much better. During calls this was less noticeable but it was certainly noticeable when recording the conversation for the podcast. So, I have a laptop with a single headphone jack, and it has the little symbol with both an headphone and a mic.
While my voice was scratchy from coughing, what you're mostly hearing is my mic being too close and clipping the recording. I found the cable thump to be more than acceptable as long as the cable was touched below the inline controls. Easy enough to fix in post production but it would have been nice to have some sort of dampening to keep that out. Even with the mic pulled straight forward not bent over my mouth as you'd expect , the input was very hot. I use Skype every week for my podcast, , as well as for many personal calls to family and friends. The only other issue was cable thump.
My next podcast, was better. Although I never tried a gaming headset, because I never needed one having a webcam that gets the job done. The BoomPro features an in-line control of sorts. Currently, this is only a list of headphones I know that are capable of being used with the Vmoda BoomPro, not a list of recommendations. I imagine that that Skype performance of BoomPro will be similar to the online gaming. But there were a few catches - first, mic placement was very important. Even most headphones with included mics sound fine.
I was sick that day and had to use the mute function over and over to cover coughs I've never needed a mute button before that day but I certainly was glad it was there. Are they good or should I look into another attachment style mic? Things only get expensive when you want to achieve a nice radio voice over the mic. Even a cheap Logitech webcam works absolutely fine for a gaming mic. The microphone came with a splitter, and i even tried plugging in only the mic part, but still nothing. If you read back over the Pioneer review, you'll see that I complained that the connection at the headphone was proprietary it's a simple 3. I'll update it as you give suggestions, I personally don't know many. This isolates the worst offenders but you have to be careful to place it correctly so that the cable above the clip doesn't rub anywhere and that you have enough freedom of movement to overt pulling the mic.
