Looking for a good External Microphone for a Cisco 9951 Phone

We've just received a new Cisco 9951 and I am looking for a good external microphone. The phone sits in a fairly inconvenient place for speakerphone purposes. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have tried a USB tabletop microphone, but when the phone switches to the USB mic, it turns off the internal speaker. I also tried a Philips "360 Boundary Layer Microphone" but the quality was pretty poor. I'm still searching, but thought that just maybe someone else had tried to solve the same problem.

That Azden mic seems a bit more directional than I need! I'm looking for something that does 360 degrees. I also tried a Crown Sound Grabber II, but the quality was very poor (I should have known--that mic didn't get very good reviews).

And actually, the phone itself picks up sounds pretty good. My user might have to make do, but I want to exhaust all inexpensive options before giving up.

I have found that the XML AC-404 USB microphone works pretty well with the 9951 phone. Only $75 from Amazon.
