Hi. I've been using the Audio Technica Pro with the Andrea PureAudio USB-SA USB Sound Card on my personal setup with phenomenal results. I usually just plug a cheap pair of earbuds into the audio out on the soundcard.

 

 

I recently started a new job in a "call-center-like" environment, and having an integrated setup  like the ADDASOUND Crystal SR 2832 (HD) would be really convenient. That said, if the speech recognition and noise canceling performance are not comparable to the Audio Technica Pro, it's not worth the moderate boost in convenience I would get from that headset style.

 

What are the community's thoughts?  I would especially be interested in hearing from those who had experience with both headsets

The accuracy is virtually the same and although the Addasound Crystal SR2832 is very noise filtering, it is not as noise filtering as the Audio-Technica Pro 8HEmW which was designed for extremely noisy environments like a jackhammer or the Big Haired Lady target practicing with her silverplated 357 Magnum circa Dirty Harry revolver. Of course we 30 day, no restock fee, customer satisfaction, guarantee it.

PS: Do not volunteer to play a game called Russian roulette with the Big Haired Lady

Thanks for the timely and on-point info. I think I'll invest in that headset. Partially for convenience, and partially because my backup mic right now, if something ever were to happen to my audio technica Pro, is a blue snowflake.

 

The snowflake is actually really impressive, as long as the environment is really quiet. But it's the microphone equivalent of a great horned owl. It hears everything, and I mean everything going on in the environment.

 

That said, I think I'll wait until I get my Dragon situation sorted at work, before I place the order.  Right now, in the absence of Dragon, my speech recognition setup there needs all the help it can get, which means sticking with the trusty  Audio Technica Pro  for the time being.

Hi. I got the ADDASOUND headset in and overall I'm very impressed.

 

Since I'm going to be wearing it for hours, I got the fake leather ear-pad upgrade.  Oddly, one went on super easy, and the other one was a real struggle, but they're both on there now, and I don't plan on removing them.

 

I'll test the headset at work on Monday, but based on my checks generating artificial background noise, it seems like the noise cancellation will be more than sufficient for the office I'm in.
