As well as the SpeechWare FlexyMike single and dual ear cardioid microphones and the Sennheiser ME3, what other over the ear and neckband USB mics are out there that play well with Dragon?

We haven't tested any neck microphones in a long time because the distance could vary from 1 to 6 inches by turning your head. However, now that Dragon's default setting is to automatically adjust the volume input level, you can get away with any dual speaker headset. Our favorite dual speaker wireless headset would be the Sennheiser MB Pro2, which should be available locally in the UK. Our favorite wired headset would be the Addasound SR 2832 which may or may not be available locally. If you go with an Addasound, opt for the protein filled ear pads. The manufacturer speaker pads are miserable foam. We also include 2 foam windscreens which you should be able to source them locally to.

PS: Jim Robinson and Malcolm Grant gave us a wonderful TalkingPoint demonstration yesterday. They mentioned your name

My end user is looking for an over the ear or neckband USB headset mic. She doesn't get on with a standard over the head mic.

I just use my $40 Amazon headset with mic and hang it around my neck for long sessions where my ears might get tired of the headphone pressure. It works fine.

Apologies for not finishing our previous answer  The point we overlooked making, as kkkwj graciously pointed out, is that you can use any stereo microphone headset by wearing it on your collar rather than your ears. The reason for stereo is so that the microphone can be comfortably balanced around your neck
