Why aren't there any decent ModMic alternatives? I'm not paying $50 ($70 for the new one) plus shipping for that shit. Chinks make some nice cheap IEMs, why aren't there similar options for microphones too?

This with a mute switch would be perfect.

No thanks. I don't want stuff that picks up audio from my keyboard and the rest of my room.

>> No.58736943

>a mute switch
mute hotkey would work fine

>> No.58736949

You can make it fairly uni directional

As for the keyboard stuff you can just clip it to your monitor or something and get it off the desk

Otherwise buy a mod mic faget, enjoy your frayed cable

>> No.58736982

Buy a Chinese one for $20. Does the same thing as long as you aren't using a Blue Yeti/Snowball which complicates things due to their dumb weight/form factor which tries to push you to buy their $100 shockmount.

>> No.58736991

I don't really like muting things on software only. I feel better knowing no audio is going through the microphone by flipping a switch. I assume I can probably use AHK or something similar to set the microphone volume on Windows to 0 though? That could solve it.

Clipping it to a monitor would look like shit, and I doubt any of that would solve it picking up my keyboard, because I use MX Blues. I'm not buying a ModMic because it seems like a shit deal for how much they cost and for the amount of issues I've seen with them online.

>> No.58737003

Well then you basically have no options aside from buying a heatset

>> No.58737006

No, it's just that you can get a better set of headphones and a better attachable mic for a lower price then buying a headset

>> No.58737019

>I assume I can probably use AHK or something similar

Or a few minutes to create a C# service that does all sorts of things.

I have a hotkey that changes output audio devices and shows an icon in the system tray on whether audio is routing to my headphone or big speakers.

>> No.58737041

That was kinda my point. A lot of the ways to "solve" the microphone issue aren't anywhere near as simple like a headset. A Cloud Core is like $80 and comes with everything, plus a removable mic, mute switch and it sounds pretty nice for the price. Everything else is a meme if all you're doing is playing vidya and listening to music occasionally.

You can look at dynamic cardioid microphones and combine it with a cheap Chinese mount to bring it in closer to your mouth. That will pick up less desk noise than a yeti setup every shill suggests.

Switch from those MX Blues, I made a mistake buying those as well.

>> No.58737100

Still seems like a fuckload of work for something I can get easily and cheaper on a headset.

Also I love blues, and don't plan on switching anytime soon. My headset mic doesn't pic them up anyway, which is the reason I don't see a point on desk mics, so I have nothing to worry.

>> No.58737129

If you like it, keep it. VOIP can only get so good so no need to invest in big shit.

Just putting that advice out there for people considering the standard Blue Yeti I see in every microphone thread can have other options that more suit their needs.

>> No.58737146

You simply can't beat the convince of only having to deal with a single cable

besides the Siberia 200 from steel series is fine, it's basically just a new V2

>> No.58737160

I have question tho, concerning these

I have some studio monitor headphones which I use and love for my gaming

But the AC unit is very close to my desk, the dehumidifier is also nearby, additionally my roommates use the PS3 in the adjacent room a lot. And my computer has loud-ish fans.

BUT I don't want a "gaming headset" due to the stuff like >>58737038 mentions

SO. What is a good microphone with noise cancellation (that must work on Linux?)

>> No.58737167

>I can get easily and cheaper on a headset
I believe you're missing the point.

Headsets do not offer acceptable sound quality, generally speaking. Even very expensive headsets perform poorly to decent mid-range headphones.

If you don't care much about sound quality, specifically for music, then phones+mic may not be the best option for you.
