This is a legacy headset that has a 1/8th microphone jack that simply plugs into the audio input on my laptop. I was frantic as I had this video to make and no sound input. I tried for an hour to fix the microphone by rewiring with no luck. Then after about 2 hours it hit me that I could use my blue-tooth headset as a audio input on my laptop thanks to its integrated blue-tooth capability. Now some of you might be going "well duH!" but for me since I havent used my blue-tooth devices for my laptop before and only for my cellphone this was something new. But its a good example of how ingrained the "wired" concept is in our heads. I wasnt thinking at the time how I could maybe go out and pick up the latest and greatest wireless microphone. Instead I was thinking about where I could go to get an old legacy microphone that was exactly like the one I had!
