Quality of audio and cost are directly related when purchasing headsets or microphones. We recommend that you purchase something in the $30 to $50 range. The FCPE recommends Logitech webcams for use with Connect Meeting. Many webcams have built-in microphones. Please check manufacturer specifications.
