Microphone for Skype.

I recently bought a logitech headset and mic' for use with Skype, but the mic produced only very low volume. All my computer settings are correct - thanks to advice elsewhere on PCA, but I am now looking to buy another mic-not necessarily with headset-that will give adequate volume. Any ideas please as to make/model. - It feels as tho' the Logitech (since returned unused) was maybe the wrong impedance??

Hiya, mine is just a cheap £3:50 on a stand bought at a computer fair (probably Chineese) and it works fine

that's interesting. I wondered if, maybe, I had not paid enough for one.

I had a cheapo headset with mike but it proved uncomfortable in use.

Then I spotted a "Stereo Backphone with Mike and Volume Control" in a local discount store (it fits on the back of the head rather than on top and is very comfortable, with more than adequate sound quality for the purpose).

Price?

99p...:-)

Thanks to you both. I will mark this resolved, it appears to be a bit hit'n miss as to whether the mike I buy will give good volume or not. Stll ay .99p and £3.50 I can afford to risk a couple of duff purchases.
