What headset do you recommend to record audio for courses?

Jul 20, 2012


I've got a budget of $75 to buy a new headset to record audio for our courses.

Any recommendations?  I'm using 64-bit Windows 7.

Personally - I would not bother - and would invest in a USB/standalone microphone and a pop filter instead.

Make sure you have a big pile of pillows or similar sound-absorption around the mic.

The sound quality will be infinitely better than a headset.

I started off with one of these and it was fine for the job - but spend as much as you can; I have heard good things about the Snowball.

You should also decide if you are going to record directly into the eLearning application, or whether you are going to record into, (for example...) Audacity, edit and produce, and then import into your application.

Hope this helps.
