I have been using for few years Antlion’s ModMic. Not the latest version, but the 2.0. Happy with it, but not perfect, since it captures a lot of background noise/sounds and since COVID, I am sharing the same “office” with my wife, thus my colleagues (and often my teammates) can hear her through mic.
I wouldn’t be searching for a new one, but, the sticker that holds it on my headphones dried out and fell. I ordered some from 3M to replace it, but for some reason, they don’t hold… The original, was 3M, lasted 4-5 years, but the new ones, last barely 3-4 weeks each. And it is really annoying to have the mic fall while doing a presentation (or playing). Tried to clean very well both surfaces, tried different surfaces, no go.
Antlion offers a kit of magnets and stickers, but I cannot find them in EU, and the cost to get them from US is 80% of the cost of a new mic. Not worth it. Also, I am afraid the stickers won’t last either.
So, if I have to buy a new mic, I may as well shop around for other options. ModMic is ideal for me, since I can attach it to any headphones, it has 2 sets for magnetic bases and works fine, apart from the background noise capture.
What other options do I have? I need something relatively small, with good sound, noise reduction and not some huge studio mic, like the ones streamers use.
ps. headsets are no go, as I am using studio grade headphones
