This weekend I was testing out Logitech’s ClearChat PC Wireless (noise cancellation headset microphone) with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred.
You can read some of my initial impressions written with the headset and DNS 10 below:
Okay so now I’m using Microsoft Word I want to see just how well this works from a bit of a distance. I’m walking over across from my office this is really cool I am standing about 20 feet away from a computer typing on my computer while I look at it from a distance
I have a portable heater blowing warm air against my feet and it is making a little bit of noise in the background. That’s it doesn’t seem to be impacting my computer nor my microphone whatsoever. This is just flat-out amazing I can’t believe how well this works.
This is exceeding all of my expectations and then some. I can pace and type at the same time. This is pretty damn cool!
I will try and get some video of this in action very soon. I had to charge it for 2.5 hours out of the packaging. Then plugged it in, no software, it just worked. I was amazed. This works on the 2.4Ghz protocol, its not a bluetooth headset. That said at $99 it is about $200 cheaper than the bluetooth headsets I’ve been able to find so far.
Being the technophile uber geek that I am, I’m even wondering if I can enjoy watching movies in my home theater seating arrangement (known as a couch) while dictating movie reviews into the headset to my computer placed in a different room.
