So I live in a ridiculously noisy household and normal microphones pick up *everything* that's going on around me, which kind of makes talking on vent a bit of a pain.

I've been looking for something suitable that'll filter out the background noise but I could do with suggestions. I considered throat mics but the retail ones seem pretty gimmicky and low quality.

Ideally I'm looking for a seperate mic rather than a headset, but I'll consider the latter if the doings can be folded out of the way or even removed.

Cheers. ugh

Well price isn't a huge issue as long as the quality is pretty decent.

As it happens, I think I have one of those knocking about. I'll give it a whirl and see how it works.

Okay so the clip mic isn't that great. In fact you more or less have to swallow the mic in order to get any sound out of it. Confused

Looking at some steelseries headsets with the retractable boom mic, anyone have any experience with these?

http://www.plantronics.com makes great headsets, ive worked in several very noisy call centers that use them, so noise cancelling mics are a must. They are more corporate oriented so prices can be steep, most of their models are wireless(BT), though they do have gaming headsets too.

EDIT: plantronics gaming headset with noise canceling mic @ 99$
