Airline 77 - Vocal Version (preferred for Speech Recognition
wireless headset microphone system is made by Samson, an innovator
in wireless microphones for more than 26 years. The package we sell
includes the QV10e vocal headset transmitter (recommended for
speech recognition users), the CR77 receiver, and the required
cable to connect the receiver to your personal computer. The unique
aspect of this system is high quality microphone with attached
transmitter (no need for separate battery pack as required with
Sennheiser Evolution and Nady wireless systems).The headset
requires 3 AAA batteries which have a life of about 14 hours.
Comments: As attested to on a number of speech forums,
this microphone is widely acclaimed for it's accuracy - and
deservedly so. It provides every bit the accuracy of the Sennheiser
ME3. The downsides are two-fold. First, it lacks the portability of
other microphones due to the size of the receiver unit. For this
reason it is best suited for stationary operations and not "road
warriors". Second, the headset is somewhat rigid and minimally
alterable for different head shapes.
as sold, is set up and includes everything you need for outstanding
use with speech recognition software. To the basic system provided
by Samson, we add the required XLR to 3.5 mm connector to attach
the system to your PC or sound adapter and we perform a small tweak
of the transmitter output (described in detail below). We recommend
using it with an external USB sound adapter such as the Anrea Pure
Audio MA USB adapter or the Buddy 7G.
that we sell this microphone in two versions. The QE10 is the
"fitness" version and has a more waterproof microphone element and
is intended for the fitness instructor. The QV10e version (this
listing) does not have the high moisture resistance but has a pick
up pattern which may be more apt to reject external noise and be
preferrable for speech recognition users.
which version you purchase, consider the addition of an external
USB adapter for the interface of this system to your pc. We
recommend the Andrea Pure Audio (MA) or Buddy 7G USB Adapter, but
virtually any USB adapter will work with this system.
Special Note: If you have purchased this system
elsewhere and are having problems using it, please realize that AH1
transmitter may have left the factory set up for the sound volume
of a stage entertainer which is likely much louder than your normal
"dictating voice". You will need to tweak the transmitter output as
described below in order to increase it's output. This is a simple,
30 second procedure, and is described below.
