We're trying to set up conferencing with a Polycom CX3000 and people are complaining about paper shuffling noise when on the conference call. I was wondering how you guys deal with it and if there are any decent wireless lapel mics out there for computer audio that I can use if just one person is presenting

EDIT: I have a Shure ULXS4 and a Shure wireless lapel mic that I might want to use, should I do a sound card with a breakout box instead?

Tell the meeting attendees to stop shuffling their papers. – joeqwerty Sep 15 '11 at 20:42

For our audio system we use a Shure PGX system. Its a bit more expensive than some competitors but we have had it for a while and had no problems. We had issues with the wires on the lavalier or lapel mics causing problems or breaking with other brands. The wireless receiver has a 1/4 in headphone jack and we have a converter to a jack that plugs into the mic port on the conference room computer. It records and broadcasts no problem.

I know this is only half the answer you were looking for, sorry.

Don't apologize, that's a great idea! I'll probably use the ULXS4 receiver and ULX1 mic that I already have. The only thing holding me back was worry about sound quality – blsub6 Sep 15 '11 at 22:50
Test it out, the sound quality should be fine and not overly sensitive. – MaskedPlant Sep 18 '11 at 1:39
The sound quality was more than acceptable. Thanks again :) – blsub6 Sep 20 '11 at 19:31
