I currently have a two-year old Plantronics headset which I use with DNS 10, but now I want to upgrade my microphone. Sennheiser ME3 was my first choice, but I've been reading some reviews and apparently theBoom headsets are really great for speech recognition.

However, for $99-115 I want to be really sure it''s a good choice. I'm more interested in theBoom "O" since they seem to be the most comfortable. Has anybody used this headset or any of the other models? Also, are there any other options for same price range?

These are 2 threads with multiple people sharing opinions and criticisms on theBoom line of microphones and the Sennheiser ME3.

TheBoom "O", TheBoom v4, Sennheiser KnowBrainer what are the differences? Which is better, what do you recommend? http://www.knowbrainer.com/PubForum/index.cfm?page=viewForumTopic&topicId=3390&listFull#B05FF079-3048-5991-CEDE5318789thread14067


Dragon NaturallySpeaking accuracy with the Boom “O” microphone. http://www.knowbrainer.com/PubForum/index.cfm?page=viewForumTopic&topicId=3696&listFull#8A3A224D-3048-5991-CE60E9AFCCBthread15361


In my own personal opinion the Senneheiser ME3, theBoom v4, and theBoom "O" are all excellent microphones but I tend to find the v4 a bit uncomfortable.

Thank you Tom, I actually bought it a few days ago but I think mine was broken because the input was horrible compared other cheaper headsets. I'm gonna try to get a replacement and give it another try--the reviews are too good to ignore.

Thanks
