Hi everyone.  I have seen these on a blog from the US and wondered if anyone knew where we could get them in NZ?  They cut down the background noise when children are recording their voice.

    These look awesome! Do you know what they are called? Does it have the name on the original blog? I'd love to try and track them down as well. :)

    I found these on Aliexpress.

    Could be an option? They look great.

    I got one of these at NOOD in Christchurch for around $10. They are a little better than the iPad's omnidirectional internal mic but there's still lots of spill from the classroom (very retro and cool looking though). I have tried cheap USB headsets with a camera connection kit and they work okay in a busy class. Failing that, iRig Mics work very well too. I usually send kids outside or into the cloakroom to do any semi-important audio.

    I have one from Glassons a few years back, probably similar to the ones from NOOD. I'll have to give it a go, I never thought of this! Thanks!
