Amazing USB Microphones
« on: April 22, 2013, 08:12:35 pm »

As long as I have been playing with PCC I have been looking for a good microphone setup for my HA system.  I finally found one and it is really cheap.  Believe it or not, my step son turned me on to an idea with the usb Microphones used for the xbox360 and the DJ Hero game I hooked it up and it is really amazing I did a little training on my PC's and it is up and running better and more reliable than any microphone I have used before I would really say that with these mics my VR with PCC is 99.9% I wasn't even getting that good of a result from the android mic app I was using.  And the best part is that they can be purchased used at any video game store for around $10 

I just thought that this might be a great option that my help other users   ;>
I am finding that more and more of the microsoft gaming stuff can really enhance the Ha experience. 
I am also attempting to get the developer for the kinect stuff to support the same wifi bulbs that are being added for PCC

Cool find.
Have you tried the USB mic with your android mini PC?
I've also found some of the Sony Play Station stuff you can connect to the PC.
So the integration of game console hardware isn't just limited to Microsoft gaming stuff.

Here is a little update the PS3 microphones also work with a PC.  However they don't work with the mini PC's but the xbox ones do so a cheap dj hero microphone does work with the android devices.  I have used it with my phones and tablets as well.
