I am finding the headset microphone that comes from Nuance with my Dragon Naturally Speaking 9 Preferred is not the greatest as I have read here. I want something better. I do not want to spend a lot of money(less than $200) for one but I do want one that will work more efficiently. I do a lot of emails and searching on the web. I do not have a lot of deskroom so I prefer to choose from a headset or a wireless (if it is one that I can depend on). I also want to know what is the advantage of an external USB pod with any mic I choose.
