Easi-speak microphone

I'd always been looking for an easy way to record my students in class and this EASI-SPEAK microphone was a really good discovery.

Check out its features:

The black microphone looks less childish than the yellow one. It's 34,49 pounds (including VAT) but unfortunately it's only sold in the UK. A colleague of mine who is living in England at the moment will try to purchase it and I might write a review about it in January. They have also created another model of microphone (Easi-speak Pro) which looks more professional and can be found in their E-CATALOGUE p.101.

This is another product by TTS I'd love to have but cannot purchase at the moment. I had seen it in a video about an English teacher using it to record students in class. What I liked aboutit is how easy it is to record and dowload it to your computer.

I was at a professional exchange in Canberra, in Australia on Friday. One of the presenters held up the easi speak microphone and showed us how easy it was to use. Hopefully I can get a class set, to allow my students to quickly complete podcasts.
Have you used it much since this blog post? How have you found it? Where did you buy it from? Online? Or do you have a dealer where you live/

Dear Anne,

My easi-speak mic is going to arrive in December so I haven't used it yet. I tried to buy it online but they're only selling it if you have a UK address, so a friend of mine who is living there has ordered two mics online, one for me and one for her and will bring w/ her as she returns to Brazil in DEC. From what I've read in other sites, people find it great. I also think it's a good idea to have more mics in class so that more students can use it at a time. You can order it from TTS
