Best external USB/3.5mm microphone for a laptop to record a presentation?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,


So we have a presentation room which holds about 40 or 50. I'm always being asked to record these presentations so we can share them with staff overseas.

The problem I have is getting good quality audio, the speaker will use a handheld microphone or lapel mic which will come out of Bose FreeSpace 16W speakers. In the past I have used an iPhone or inbuilt laptop mic to record the audio but it always sounds bad. I was looking at connecting the laptop to a Jabra 710 or some other external to try and improve the audio or is it a pointless task and I need just invest in recording directly from the microphone feed (way expensive!). Please remember the sound I'm trying to record is coming through the ceiling speakers and not the natural persons voice.

Thanks for any help.

Record directly from the Audio Feed of the microphone, I am sure you'll find a line out on your PA.


Everything else will be shitty quality.
