Need a good mic for Cortana please.

Need a good mic for Cortana please.

Hello all, I am seeking a good usb mic to use for Cortana voice commands. I would like one which I can place on my work desk, connect to my pc but can pick up my voice anywhere in a 20x20 room and should have background noise cancelling to block out my TV. This is not for any commercial use, just my own private usage.


I am looking at this unit Polycom HDX Table Microphone Pod 2201-23313-003 :


Can anyone tell me if that will work for my purpose please? If not, any others, thanks.

Hello @mikehende,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

I do not believe we manufacture any standalone microphones that can be easily connected to a PC or Mac.

Thanks for the quick response. Hmnn, I had thought a conference mic would simply connect to a pc so I guess I should search the net simply for any good USB mic?

We have recently announced a new product, the VoxBox that is a personal speaker phone for connection to PC applications.  That may meet your needs.
