How To Select The Right Microphone For Your PC?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Computer microphones are useful tools when it comes to increasing communication levels, whether at work or for leisure. Whether it is holding business meetings and conferences over the internet or simply using messenger tools like yahoo messenger, MSN or Skype to chat with friends, the experience is incomplete without a microphone. However, when it comes to actually spending your hard earned money on a microphone for your personal computer system, how do you know which one you should choose out of the wide range available in the market? This article helps you with exactly this and makes your task easier.

The usual and first debate that comes to mind when selecting a product is the price versus quality debate. The general opinion is that the pricier the product, the better is its quality. While there may be exceptions to this rule, this generally stands true. For example, there is a reason why one may pay ten dollars for one microphone and about fifty dollars for another. The cheaper microphones will give you an inferior sound output as compared to a more expensive one. They are more likely to break down faster than an average priced or a slightly more expensive microphone. The microphone is cheap at the end of the day because the materials with which it is made are also cheap. This results in lesser reliability, since quality checks are less stringent when it comes to bulk manufacturing. More expensive microphones usually pack in a lot more features, like noise cancelling and distortion filters.

While buying a microphone, also keep in mind the purpose that you are buying the microphone for. Is your main purpose just to chat with friends over the internet or are you buying one for business purposes? If you are only looking to chat with friends online, buying an expensive microphone hardly makes much sense. However, if you would prefer better and uninterrupted crystal clear sound quality for your conferences, it would be advisable for you to get a slightly more expensive microphone that has additional features like those mentioned above. Also, if you wish to use your personal computer for dictating and vocal commands, you should buy a high quality microphone since a voice recognition software demands very high audio inputs, so that the command may be interpreted correctly.

These are the basic points that one needs to consider in order to get a computer microphone that both fits one’s pocket as well as one’s purpose.
