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.

The technology used in theBoom line of noise canceling headsets was invented when UmeVoice engineers tackled one of the greatest obstacles to accurate speech recognition: background noise. In order for speech recognition software to work, the computer needs to be able to "hear” what the speaker is saying. Previously, the loud, chaotic noise of the trading floor prevented the application of voice recognition systems.
To address this problem, UmeVoice engineers developed a revolutionary new headset design that "focuses” the phone's microphone on the speaker's voice and only the speaker's voice. Even in the chaotic environment of a Wall Street trading floor, users of our handset and voice recognition software can communicate as if they were sitting in a private office.
Subsequently, UmeVoice engineers went to work to miniaturize and modify our technology for integration into a variety of products that rely on clear speech input. theBoom is the result of this effort and the first product that makes this revolutionary technology available to consumers.
In addition to Wall Street, theBoom technology has been applied in other high noise environments like: aviation headsets, warehousing, nuclear power plants, professional racing, and call centers. theBoom has won numerous accolades for being best noise canceling headset, cellular phone headset, computer headset, and aviation headset in the world. theBoom is the only headset that will work in a convertible with the top down.
The world's best noise canceling microphone and Active Noise Reduction headphones for both ears in one package. Patented, award winning technology from theBoom and used both on Wall Street and by the Military.
theBoom Pro-3 headset combines cutting edge noise reduction for the microphone as well as the speakers. Featuring UmeVoice's patented noise canceling technology for the microphone, theBoom Pro-3 enables users to be heard clearly regardless of the level of background noise. Using state of the art lightweight ANR (automatic noise reduction) technology for the speakers, theBoom Pro-3 helps protect the user's hearing from loud noises without the bulk of many ANR headsets.
theBoom Pro-3 headset combines the best of both worlds, cutting edge noise reduction for both the microphone and headphones. With theBoom Pro-3, you will be heard loud and clear even at a whisper. Since there's no need to speak over surrounding noise, you can keep your conversations private and avoid disturbing people around you.
