    TF101 + Skype + Which External Microphone?

    Hello!
    I was wondering what kind of microphone I could buy/use on my TF? I tried the standard ones that comes with the iPhone, some that came with my Samsung Galaxy S II and some that came with a friends HTC, and none seems to work. Am I doing something wrong, or does the TF only accept a certain brand of mic's?
    I was hoping to get a good response by tomorrow, as I'm going out travelling to Thailand, and I really need a good Microphone to use with Skype calls with my family back here in Norway!

    Regards, Tony!

    Not sure about an external mic, but you do know there is an internal mic built in ?

    Which personally I don't find to be all that great. The only work around that I have is using the skull candy inked series that have a built in microphone.

    I have found that headphones designed to add a mic with the iPhone/iPad seem to work.

    I have used the following:
    iPhone 4 headphones with mic/volume controls (volume/play/pause controls do not work)
    SkullCandy Ink'd Mic'd (button does not do anything)
    SkullCandy 50/50 with iPhone Controls (buttons don't work)
    Sennheiser MM70 with iPhone Controls (buttons don't work)

    The microphone seems to work great with Skype, Google Talk and voice commands.

    Also, I have used a BlueAnt Bluetooth speakerphone with mic and it works great.

    Wired headset with mic boom

    I'm also looking for a headset with mic boom but haven't found one.

    I went to Best Buy to try the following headsets and tested them with the recorder application that is on the main app screen. When I hit record, it picked up the volume of the mic from both headsets, and I could also play it back and hear it in the earbuds.

    1.The one that came with the iPhone 4S
    2.The one that came with the HTC Raider

    Both of these seem to work in terms of the mic, although now I wonder if it used the mic in the headsets or the mic that is built in was used... How would I be able to tell which was used?

    I wasn't able to test with Skype to see if they both work at the same time, but I would like to know if anyone has found any headset with 1 connector like for the phones, but has the mic boom in front.

    Cheers, and thanks!
