Wanted to ask if anybody has good experiences with table/desktop microphones.
I'm transitioning away from wearing a headset (my setup is/was an Astro A40 hooked up to an HT Omega Claro sound card (DDH/DD)).
I bought the Sennheiser IE80 IEMs for use on the go and for pc/console gaming, i.e. it replaces everything. Still hooked up to the same card.
This means I don't have a headset mic anymore.
I bought a Logitech Desktop microphone and received it today, for a so called noise cancelling microphone, it picks up waaaay too much sound. It picks up my keystrokes, clicks, the TV which is 30m away, my brother shitting in the bathroom, and so on.
Every other table mic seems to be designed the same way, as omni-directional mics, they pick up way more than I need as they are all built mainly for podcasting and conferencing.
Any suggestions on table mics that kinda act like a headset mic? I.e. only pick up whatevers facing it? I compared the Logitech and the A40s microphone in Mumble and looked at what they were picking up, the difference was pretty huge. A40 mic is mute until I actually say something while the Logitech has constant pickup. Played with the volumes and whatnot as much as I could.
This typically isn't a huge issue, but I can't stand Push to Talk and want to stick with voice activation.
