    Is there any way to desensitize the microphone?
    I work in a factory setting and the background noise can override
    my voice.
    OR
    Is there a wireless headset out there that might help with the problem.


    Thanks for any help
    Mike

    Better handsets and better headsets have "noise-canceling" microphones, which
    can really help in noisy environments. (Some handsets also have
    noise-canceling signal processing, but I personally don't find it terribly
    effective.) My suggestion is to look for a high-end name brand headset that
    specifically mentions noise canceling. These will typically be boom-type, so
    the microphone is close to your mouth. Try <http://www.plantronics.com/>.

    Look on the internet for a headset called "the boom" will solve all
    your problems.

    There are some bone-conductive microphones that pick up zero background
    noise. The one I discovered (that I can't find now), only connected via a
    cable. I wanted a Bluetooth connection.
