Dear list members, As part of my research, I am looking for a reliable way to record human speech such that changes in the recorded levels are a reflection of changes in the speaker's voice, and not simply due to the speaker turning their head or moving away from the microphone. This naturally suggests using some sort of headset microphone, but our previous experiments with these have still given rise to too much "play" in the positioning of the microphone relative to the mouth. Does anyone know of reliably rigid headsets/mountings for this type of application, or of any other workarounds for this problem? Thanks, Reggie
