The BoomPro Microphone (model# C-BP-Black) from V-MODA is creative yet simple. It’s one of those products that begs the question: Why hasn’t this been invented already? A 200 cm headphone extension cable with a built in boom microphone – It’s ingenious. The BoomPro Microphone converts your regular or studio headphones (with 3.5mm jack input) into a headset for gaming, communication and recording. Benchmark Reviews has seen many novel accessories and quite a lot of gimmicks in the technology news stream, but this one caught our eye. For $30 you can’t really do much wrong.
The Latin phrase Veni Vidi Vici is used on the front of the packaging, and this is a bold claim. This is a phrase believed to have been coined by Julius Caesar when he conquered Britain – I came (Veni), I saw (Vidi), I conquered (Vici). Let’s just hope the BoomPro microphone can live up to this.
