How can I mod a head-set type microphone into a omnidirectional microphone to pick up many voices in a room. Answered
The mic will be used to pick up audio from numerous people through out a living room, and transmitted streaming via an XBOX 360 controller. I am also trying to use existing materials, in addition this will later be built into a true instructable. Any pointers would be awesome, I even toyed with the idea of making it into a parabolic mike and pointing it at the ceiling to pick up sounds through out the room. Currently the microphone has an area where the sound is obviously designed to be picked up only from the speakers mouth. Good news is its easy to take the headset apart, its screwed rather then glued together. The Bad news, all the wiring is ultra thin enamel coated, so very evil to solder, well for me anyhow. I have included a picture of the actual headset. The ear-phones will be redirected to amplified speakers and the 2.5mm jack has to remain to hook up to the controller. This is not because it is some special jack, just trying to make it appear stock when I'm done. Any help would be awesome, and credit will be given of course, thanks in advance.
