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.
