I have some very soft-spoken coworkers who can’t be heard on conference calls unless they walk over to the laptop that’s running the meeting.
Thinking of getting an inexpensive mic (with a longish cord and/or Bluetooth) that we could just pass to whoever’s speaking.
Any recommendations on a mic suitable for this situation? Notes:
- Budget: less than $50
- We don’t control the conference room so something small/portable preferred to a “conference room speakerphone”
- Preference for mic only (the MacBook speaker is fine for our small team, and if I’m going to spend $20, I’d rather get a $20 mic than a $10 mic with a $10 speaker)
- I’m guessing a 3.5mm jack would also take over the MacBook’s sound output, so USB would probably be best.
Any recommendations? Or lessons learned if you’ve tried something similar?
