I am needing to d a video webinar to speak at a conference. So I am trying to find some sort of low profile lapel or headset mic. Since I'll be projected huge on a screen, I want something that is a little more subtle than a Logitech gaming headset.
I've been looking around Amazon and I see a few cheap ones, and a few expensive Shure ones, but they are all either 1/8in jacks or XLR. I have no experience with using those with a USB adapter, or if it is even possible. I see that there are XLR to USB adapters, but I have no idea if the mics I am looking at need power or anything. I also wanted to try and get some sort of in-ear monitor with it, but again, I don't have experience with what that takes or if it will work with just an iMac. The Logitech headset is USB, but way to large. If I get a low profile mic, and then a low profile in ear monitor, I don't have any idea what to hook them to, a 2 channel XLR box? And then that plugs into USB or the mic/headphone port on the computer?
This is a lot harder to find than I thought it would be. Seems like lots of people would do video speaking and need a low profile mic setup. Is there anyone here with experience that could maybe point me in a direction so this isn't a terrible experience for the audience? They are 9000 miles away =D
