I suppose this actually applies to all microphones; what is the best bit depth to use? The only settings I get for this microphone are 16 bit, 8000 – 48,000 Hertz. If I set it for 48,000, it's definitely more accurate, but it also picks up a lot of extraneous noises, causing words to just suddenly appear.
 
What is the best choice? Smile

If background noise is your problem, consider upgrading to a Buddy DesktopMic 7G with FilteredAudio. The noise cancellation algorithm in this microphone is impressive to say the least, and that will allow you to have the best of both worlds when dictating.

Do you have the Buddy Desktopmic 7G, or have you just heard about it? I'm in a particularly odd situation wherein my television set is about 6 feet away from my computer, so this would have to have some serious noise cancellation capabilities. :-)

We have both the Desktop 7G and Desktop 7G with Filtered Audio.
 
Even with the 7G with Filtered Audio your environment may be problematic. The only three microphones I can recommend that will work well, and this is with them within 1/2 inch of your mouth, is the Sennheiser MD 431II, the Sennheiser ME3, and the Audix OM2s. There's no getting around the laws of physics. Even the new microphones with the DSP for Filtered Audio are only designed to eliminate machine level noises like vacuum cleaners and blower fans for example.
