I mean, you could just tell people to download WO Mic or other apps that turn your phone into a PC usb or wifi mic. It's really easy to use and if you got a phone it's free
If you are too lazy/cheap to buy a mic, you can use a microphone app on your phone. I use WO Mic on Android to great success.
You need to install their app and a driver on your PC and it will allow you to use the phone's mic through WIFI, BT or USB and the driver shows up like any other mic. It works surprisingly well with the phone on the side and using push-to-talk. I use it with WIFI which seems the least hassle.
WO Mic sounds like exactly what you're looking for. I've used it a lot and never had any issues with it. You also need to download the client here on your PC.
A better way for people who cant find a male to male aux cable
1) App on your phone WO MIC 2) Program on your pc with the mic driver WO MIC 3)Run the app on your phone(under settings choose what ever way you wanna use to connect to your pc) and the program on your pc and connect to your pc over bluetooth, wifi or usb(need usb debugging enabled under your advanced settings in android in order to use the usb method and for wifi the phone and the pc must both be connected to the same network)
Even if you dont have a standard mic you can actually use your Android phone if you have one. (Not sure about iPhones) I use this app called WO Mic and it works really well with the ability to connect to your pc through Bluetooth, Wifi, or USB directly. All you gotta do is just download the PC program of it and the setup is really simple. Only problem I have with it is that if you run the WO mic app in the background of your phone the audio gets all robotic and incomprehensible.
When I started using it I noticed how much of a difference it made in competitive, starting climbing a lot easier and got to 65+ pretty quickly, and.. also changing my video settings with V-sync and running the game in fullscreen, input-lag was atrocious before.
I'm using the WO Mic app on android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wo.voice&hl=en) which comes with an application for the PC.
It turns your phone into a microphone and you can toggle mute on it, to avoid an awkward feedback loop.
It's pretty ghetto but it's quite effective and has stopped me from constantly shouting at the person in VR.
The downside is some people feel like its wierd to be surrounded by my voice every now and then.
Kinda, one way would be to Skype call yourself. So you wouldn't be recording an input device on your desktop but your skype conversation which is with yourself, this may however be a bit difficult to stream with as you will be hearing yourself with a delay which will likely make you stutter, disorientated and just plain confused.
Alternatively a quick google search which I suggest a lot of people to do before ever posting is wo mic https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wo.voice&hl=en
Try this app, that's the one i used back when my headset broke. Sure its not SupraHD but it got the job done until i could replace my headset.
I used WO Mic a lot last year. Give it a try.
$20. Pretty low. My suggestion :
Get your highest end Android phone you can get. Or borrow.
Download Wo Mic.
Use your Android phone as a Microphone.
I remember GradeAUnderA mention in his video that he used a Samsung Galaxy S2 for his earlier videos.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wo.voice there you go!
Use an aux cable and this app to use your phone as a mic. It's what I did for a few months while saving up for a good headset.
or just get this - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wo.voice
and client for windows
you can connect it via Wi-Fi or USB or even bluetooth, can't be simplier
I Think this one is better and easier
You mean like this? Or did you mean with an audio cable?
Not a "headset", but a mic. Just plug a pair of headphones into your PC and connect the phone as a mic.
You can also use this to have your phone work as a microphone if you're on android and are able to hook it up to a windows machine.
