People always ask me which microphone headset combination they should use for their teleseminars.

There are hundreds of choices, ranging from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars for professional grade microphones.

I’ve tried many of them fromm the major manufacturers like Plantronics, which many people like. Frankly, I don’t like the way they sit on my head and I’ve never been able to get a good volume because of this. Maybe my head is shaped funny, as mnay people do like Plantronics, and they are the industry leader. If it works for you, that’s great!

The model that I prefer — hands down — is the Uniden HS915, which costs a mind boggling $9.85. I like them so much, I bought a dozen of them, in case one of them should fail (and wires will eventually break, so I like to have a backup). It will work on most phones with the standard sized jack. I use it with my Sprint cell phone all the time and it works great.

You can order them at

If you’d like to test out headset/microphone combos, go to your local Office Depot or Office Max. They have a great return policy, so if you don’ like the product for any reason, you can return it with no questions.

I bought the Uniden Power Max 5.8 GHz phone at Costco and use that for recording all my teleseminars. It works great. I don’t remember the price, but I’m guessing it was less than $300.
