  1. Mic monitoring

    Zero latency mic monitoring. The only way I can think of this is to have the headphones plug into the microphone, then plug into the computer.

    Headphones>--_____ --hjack
    Microphone >-- --mjack

    I'm on mobile so I don't know if this will look right or if you will understand it. Also there is def room for improvement as I don't think this would work with an audio interface still, but would be better than nothing.

      • Add mic-side clasp spare in accessories bundle!

        Please add one spare mic attachment to the accessories bundle! (NOT THE BASE CLASP) For when the mic-side magnet falls out of its socket.

        • Braided cable

          make a version of the mod mic with nylon braided cables, it would greatly increase the quality in terms of looks and feel (if not the actual cable quality), also great match with other high end peripherals

          • Greater portability for road-warriors.

            Hi. Modmic is awesome. I've been telling all my colleagues: consultants who spend 40+ weeks a year on the road, and who constantly take conference calls in airports, taxis, cafes, etc. We're all hooked on Bose and similar noise-cancelling headphones. So, Modmic is the perfect way to keep our Bose QC 15/25 and add similar quality to the audio input.

            (We've all tried the $400-$500 bluetooth headphones, but the microphones are terrible. Not acceptable for work calls, especially not in a public space.)

            But while some people are instantly sold on my modmic rig, others look at the cables and…

            • Detachable Cable + adapter cable

              The only issue with your attachable microphone is the added cable. Having two cables dangling off of your headphones is just messy and a pain in the behind!

              My Suggestion!
              First, make the cable detachable using a standard 3.5mm jack that will also carry stereo audio, left, right and mic like in most cell phones. (TRRS).
              Second, build and sell very short adapter cable for the most common headphone connections, 3.5mm, 2.5mm and mini XLR to connect the headphone to the microphone, and therefore only having to deal with one cable hanging off of the headphone/microphone.

              Sure this would only…

              • inform owners of a Creative Sound Blaster Recon3Di soundcard how to configure their Modmic

                After being blown away by a YouTube review of the Modmic 4.0 Omnidirectional, I placed my order straightaway.
                Sadly I am also the owner of a Creative Sound Blaster Recon3Di soundcard, which is an utter piece of crap. Windows did not pick up the Modmic through the front- or backpanel jack.
                By messing around for an hour I found out that the Sound Blaster Pro Studio software controls audio device configuration and takes over Windows (10)!
                In the Pro Studio software, in the Mixing tab, you select the jack where you plugged in the Modmic, and then the Windows device…

                  • Make a one cable solution

                    The two cable solution has been off putting to me, so i have a normal gaming headset. However, with all of these headphones with detachable cables, why not make the mod mic a pass through, so the sound passes through it it one cable to the end into 2 3.5mm jacks (or one 4 tab jack maybe) so that all the headphones with a detachable cable, only need one cable for the mic and audio.

                    Headset>mod mic>one cable>2 3.5mm jacks

                    • Upgrade or switch to a softer more flexible cord

                      Love the modmic 4 that I have. Only thing I would change is the flexibility of the cord. It would nice to have a cord with a much softer, less brittle feeling rubber. For example like the cabling on my AKG K612 Pro headphones. This would make the mic cord hang much straighter and lie flatter on the desk when in use. It would also allow it to more easily follow the contour of the headphone cord when attached with the modmic clips.

                        • Broadcast quality / professional version

                          I would really like to see a broadcast / professional grade version of Modmic in the future. Something like Sennheiser HMD 26-II, only in modmic form, not with the flat response headphones attached to it.

                          It could come with a XLR-plug or with an in-line USB phantom power amp / connector.

                            • Boom rotation and design

                              two areas for improvements:
                              1. the boom itself feels too short when used with my headphones. There's limited room on the back of the headphones where i can attach the mic, limiting the reach. I ended up extending the length of the boom by unclasping it from the attachment, but tried to keep the bend at the end as recommended. A longer boom would make it easier to maneuver and eliminate this issue.
                              2. the rotation of the attachment is fixed at two angles. If a click rotation could be added to the attachment this would enable me to bring…

                                • Wire safety clip similar to the v3 design.

                                  In the image below I have outlined the safety clip that is used on the v3 version of the modmic but it no longer exists on the v4 anymore.

                                  http://i.imgur.com/0KUTTcR.png

                                  In my opinion I still prefer the v3 instead of the v4 because I use a office chair which makes it very easy to run over the wire. This helps from damaging the cable.

                                    Mic needs serious background noise reduction feature. I don't know how it works but I've seen it advertised on other mics. I've got my modmic attached to headphones with open mesh and my friends in skype hear everything that comes through them.

                                        3.5mm jack doesn't jive with xlr-based audio interfaces. We need an XLR option on this thing.

                                          ... it's a great product overall. Mic needs to be more sensitive though. I'm using Bose QuietComfort headphones and I found that the boom wasn't long enough, people were having trouble hearing me. I had to straighten out the boom at the curve at the back so I could extend it. Sometimes I have to hold it right in front of my mouth, almost touching it, to get the level I need. If you could increase mic sensitivity so it doesn't have to be so close to my mouth, the modmic would be just about perfect.
