Hello,

We our going to Skype an event in a crowded auditorium that is going to have a lot of background noise (fans, crowds, speakers, etc.).  My question is, what is the best USB noise cancelling microphone to use with Skype?  We have a Windows 7 machine that will be doing this.

Thank you


Randy

I use a logitech wireless headset.

I think this might be cheaper at Best Buy.. but that's the one I use for our sales reps, where the sales floor gets pretty noisy.

I also use this headset for skype and voip, and my PS3.

Just fyi, if the auditorium is extremely noisy, any microphone is going to pick up some of it.
