IMPORTANT NOTES:
We don't recommend using this microphone to simultaneously listen to music and dictate.
 

Some of our microphones include a built-in USB soundcard. Those that do not, typically include the recommendation to add a proper USB soundcard. This is because the integrated OEM soundcard (that came in your computer) may limit the accuracy of your new professional microphone, or even prevent it from working altogether.

NOTE: A few points to consider:
  1. Other than theBoom Pro-3, theBoom Quiet is the only high fidelity stereo headset microphone that we recommend for speech recognition. Besides being able to listen to high fidelity music while dictating, theBoom Quiet is ideally suited for traveling and can even produce white noise, similar to the Bose headsets, to reduce outside noise by 15 dB. We use this microphone when flying to listen to music while we work and white noise when we sleep. 
  2. The only negative thing we have to say about this headset is that it may feel a little heavy when compared to other speech recognition headsets but this is because of the larger ear cups and oversized magnets which are necessary for high fidelity music.
