V-MODA BoomPro Microphone Overview
The BoomPro Microphone converts your regular or studio headphones (with 3.5mm jack input) into a headset for gaming, communication and recording. The V-MODA BoomPro Microphone (model# C-BP-BLACK) will cost you $29.99 (Amazon).
The packaging for the V-MODA BoomPro Microphone is simple yet effective. The moulded plastic inner has a good hold on the BoomPro Microphone and requires a good tug to release it.
The V-MODA BoomPro Microphone is a great innovation. It’s simplicity makes me wonder why this was not invented much earlier. There is a very good chance that if your headphones have a detachable audio cable then the BoomPro will be compatible. The boom can be positioned with the absolute minimum of resistance and will stay right where you put it too.
The V-MODA BoomPro Microphone cable terminates in a 4-pole 3.5mm (1/8″) stereo jack. This is the standard now for most smartphones and tablets, so compatibility shouldn’t be an issue. The stereo jack design is nice and the unique 45 degree angle adds to the aesthetic qualities.
For PC gamers and home studio users the V-MODA BoomPro Microphone also includes a Y-splitter. The Y-splitter converts individual input of the microphone and output of the audio source to a female 4-pole stereo jack.
The V-MODA BoomPro Microphone features an in-line control clip. On the right of the in-line control clip (shown above) is a rotary volume control, and on the left of the control clip (shown below) is a microphone mute toggle switch.
