So, I have an Altec Lansing headset microphone I bought ridiculously cheap a few years ago for a spare. In addition to a noise canceling microphone, it’s supposed to have noise canceling headphones. And perhaps it does; it covers both my ears pretty heavily, and I seem to focus more on my voice when I dictate. Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t do a damn thing for the bass of my neighbor’s music 8 hours a day. I really hate wearing earplugs. Oh well, if I can eventually afford a USB soundcard with both a microphone and headphone jack, maybe I’ll just have to play my own music through my ears when I dictate — but I don’t like listening to music when I dictate. Can’t win. But it could be worse.
