Philips SpeechOne Wireless Dictation Headset Review. Is this the one?
Wireless microphones have always been recommended against for speech recognition. Thankfully, the constant breakthroughs in technology mean that old myths start to wane away as new products start to achieve the formerly unachievable. This microphone by Philips is one of a group of wireless microphones currently making portable wireless headsets a very viable option to consider for “total freedom dictation”. The one thing still keeping them away from the masses is the price. I’ll just tell it to you straight. Good wireless headsets/microphones are freaking expensive.
For hobbyists, beginner or non-professional users of dictation, there is a lot to weigh while considering if it’s worth it to go with one of these. For professional users, those who make money with dictation, it is the right investment and a no-brainer. So let’s get into this review.
What you get inside the box?
Main features of this wireless microphone.
Cons/drawbacks of this microphone.
It remains to be seen if there are any significant differences between using wireless microphones compared to the regular USB microphones we all have today at our disposal and for very cheap. One thing is for sure, that this Philips product is very advanced. The wireless technology used in its creation was developed specifically to bridge the gap between wired and wireless headsets. You shouldn’t have the interruptions and interferences that you have with cheaper variants of this type of headset. Saying that, it is still a wireless headset in the end. This means that wandering off too far away from the receiver code course the connection not to be as solid, hence reducing the accuracy of your dictation. Other electronic signals in your home or office could also cause this weakening of the connection. Whenever the connection gets weaker or interrupted, your accuracy will suffer.

I hope that this review helped you know more information about this headset. I mentioned in the review above, if you’re looking for a headset that is wireless and you want to continue to enjoy the very high levels of accuracy with your dictation as you get with your wired headsets, the Philips speech one wireless dictation headset is one of the best you can get (no pun intended). Its high price may come as a shock to many, but it is all about making the correct investment today to save yourself time and avoid frustration in the future with editing and correcting your dictated text. When you consider this, adding this headset to your toolset becomes more understandable.
