To resolve some audio issues we are considering sending headphone/microphone sets for our vMix callers.
Looking for suggestions of what sets other people are having luck with.
Also best practices for use.

Please send any recommendation you may have.

Thank you!

this depends of the system your clients have
most time a standard headphone and the microphone of the computer works well

nearly every smartphone comes with earphone and mic. this also works very well

Fifine Lav- 20 bucks on Amazon, plugs into USB 2. It comes with a 1/8" headphone jack so they can use any headphones.

Note that it's for PC/Mac, not tablet/phone.

In my day job I need to evaluate headsets for use by professional interpreters. We prefer USB models for each of use. We insist on full spec performance in both directions at the same time.

Here's our list of recommended models: https://www.zipdx.info/s...mended-for-interpreters/

Here's an explanation of our testing process: https://www.mgraves.org/...adsets-for-interpreters/

They all work with mobile phones given a suitable OTG adapter.
