Microsoft unveils Xbox 360 wireless microphone

Microsoft revealed a brand new wireless microphone today meant for use with the Xbox 360. Designed to be used with music games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Lips, this mic sports specific features that make gameplay just a tad easier.

You won't need any wires or adapters, since this mic takes full advantage of the wireless console and it even has motion sensors built in for add functionality. Additionally, there's lights on the base.

Available in black, this Xbox 360 wireless microphone will be available for purchase sometime in the fall. At that time, you can expect a price tag around $50.

Sanwa Throat Microphone makes you loud and clear

Sanwa Throat Microphone makes you loud and clear

Okay, so I have an iPhone and use the earbuds that came with it. The problem is that first, the earbuds constantly fall out of my ears and second, people I'm talking to often have trouble hearing me through the built-in mic. But you might just be able to remedy that problem with the Sanwa Throat Microphone.

This microphone wraps around your neck like some weird futuristic necklace. But it doesn't work by picking up the sound from your mouth. Rather, it works by picking up the vibrations as you speak at your throat. This transmits very clearly through the mic, making it easy for those you're talking with to hear you.

So, you might look a little weird, but at least it works pretty good. There's no information on when the Sanwa Throat Microphone will be available or how much it will cost yet, but we'll keep you posted.
