Hi, I'm looking for a portable microphone that you can hold in your hand and connect via bluetooth.

 

Everything I google has karaoke which I do not need.

 

Also Karaoke has  a built in speaker, this I do not want either.

 

I simply want to connect mic to PC via blue-tooth then use that as a microphone.

 

Mic needs to have re-chargeable battery.

 

 

 

Any advise appreciated.

Does it have to be bluetooth? That is usually quite crap for microphone sound quality because they use the headset profile which has oldfasioned telephone like frequency response.

 

Modmic wireless is well reviewed and is a USB device to the PC and seems to have at least HD voice frequency range, if not actual fullrange sound.

 

The cheap kareoke ones are a speaker that you play you play music to from the PC and it mixes in the voice and it comes out its speaker. No use for getting audio to a computer.

Sony advertise a bluetooth mic. Good price on newegg:

 

https://www.newegg.com/global/nz-en/p/N82E16836173038

 

Maybe google the manual and see if it can be paired like any other bluetooth device or not.

I checked the Sony ECM-AW4 they recommend you only use their blue-tooth receiver so still on the hunt for one that will BT to a PC in native mode.

Why handheld again?

 

what do you mean by "using with a phone conference unit' or 'iphone'?   are you intending to simply place the mice near the speakers?

 

A hand held wont be that reliable for that purpose IMHO. 

 

 

 

you are perhaps going to find UHF mics are your option and you can always get hi sensitivity / phantom powered / condensor mics or 'pads'.

There's a few options here:

One theme I noticed around is latency being a risk with BT mic devices.

 

I'd say prepare for some possible frustration, experimentation, tuning and possible gear replacement at the receiver end if that's critical.

Hi thanks for the reply, looking for a normal old school looking handheld microphone that is BT so some one can hold while standing and talking in a town hall.

 

We have devices like a Polycom that allows BT connection so during a large conference we connect to that.

 

Mics all seem to be karaoke or 2 unit devices.
