So it's a rebadged SMP, minus the meshed grille and detachable cord, as all but outright acknowledged by this VAR ...

Hey, Nuance could have done worse.

But what advantage, if any, this possibly has over the original SMP?  Just curious that's all.

Any rumored ETA on a revised or V2 of SpeechOne?  That interests me still.  Recently I got a Jabra Engage 55, as recommended for its "superior noise-cancellation".  However, in direct comparison with my Sennheiser MB Pro from KB, the Engage 55 is objectively inferior (so much so that I didn't even bother with checking out the noise-cancelling claim).  The MB Pro is already not fantastic for me (next to the SMP).  Thus I am kind of wondering what shape an "improved" SpeechOne might take ...

In our opinion, the PowerMic 4 advantages are somewhat marginal. We like the larger touchpad and the additional 4 programmable buttons, likes Philips handheld microphones. Unfortunately, the PowerMic 4 only works with DMO and DPA. It does not work in other versions of Dragon like DMPE 4.3.1, DPI or DPG. We have no doubt that Nuance did this deliberately but it still feels like they shot themselves in the foot again  


Fortunately Phillip's handheld microphones work on all Dragon products, are just as accurate, offer more models, include a much better warranty and notably less expen$ive
