I host an internet radio talk show. Because I move my head around rather a lot, I need a headset with a microphone, of broadcast standard.

What are the trade names I should be looking at?

What information do I need to look for to determine what is adequate as broadcast standard, so I can figure out how much to I'll need to pay for reasonable value for money.

Thanks

Gordon

Thank you Dave Baldwin and viki2000.

My search ended up with the AudioTechnica BPHS1 headset.

On the way I discovered that headsets with broadcast-quality microphones but otherwise simple boom microphones are uncommon.

Many headsets with microphones are designed for TV studio personnel to communicate with other studio personnel. Others are designed for use in noisy environments, such as are experienced by commentators at football games. And, yes, some are designed for interviewing out in the community. But for a small studio, such as the one I have, not so much.

You're welcome.  Your situation is a pretty small market so it's not surprising that there's not much available.
