Quick Take – Choosing the Right Home Office Microphone

Recon Research video comparing the experience provided by seven different types of home office microphones.

Just like you – we’ve been working from our home offices for quite a while.  And while working from home, we’re using a wide range of AV devices (mics, speakers, webcams, speakerphones, headsets, and more) from many different vendors.  While all of these devices work well, some work better than others in specific situations.

Within this video, an RR analyst records the same speech audio using the following types of microphones currently installed in his acoustically live home office:

  • USB Podcast Microphone
  • USB Speakerphone
  • USB Webcam Microphone
  • Lavalier Microphone
  • Wireless Headset with Boom Microphone
  • Wireless Headset with Built-In Microphone
  • Laptop Built-In Microphone

To be clear – this video is NOT focused on comparing specific vendors or models.  Instead, this video highlights the importance of choosing your AV devices, or in this case your home office microphone, very carefully.
