Tested with Skype
This review is from: CAD USB Boundary Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone
Pros: Works well with Skype. No feedback issues. Good sensitivity. The microphone picks up from all angles around the board room table. We had 3 people in the board room and 3 more people joined the meeting by Skype. It worked very well. The first time I used it, I had to configure Skype to use my normal speakers because Skype mistakenly thought the USB microphone would work as speakers as well, however this was a one-time issue. Note: communication through Skype is half-duplex. The device driver for the microphone offers an automatic gain control option. If you do not use automatic gain control then you can manually set the volume/sensitivity. I have used it with Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) and Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium. The microphone comes with a 10 foot USB cable. There is a blue light on the microphone that flashes on and off when it is being used by an application such as Skype. The light is on steady after the Skype call has ended.
Cons: The instructions warn against using it with incompatible USB hubs.
