WAY Better Than Mic Packaged With Dragon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Andrea Electronics C1-1022600-50 model NC-185 VM USB High Fidelity Stereo USB Computer Headset with Noise Canceling Microphone and Volume/Mute Controls (Personal Computers)
We bought this Andrea 185VM-USB microphone headset as a replacement for a lost microphone that came packaged with Dragon Dictate. This microphone is 10 times better--at least. With this microphone there are far fewer dictation errors. The frustration level and learning curve for using Dictate has been a sticking point for us. We lost the microphone, bought this one, and lo and behold: It was the Dragon-packaged microphone causing the problems!! The mute button is also a nice feature when dictating--much easier than clicking the dictate button on and off a bunch of times while thinking/formulating sentences, etc. We have also used this for Rosetta Stone Spanish and found it is better than the mic packaged with that product as well. I did some research before buying this one, and it seems to be a good value too! Last, but not least, this Andrea headset is being used by two teenagers and it seems to be holding up well to tough use. Just in case, we just bought 3 more!
