What audio devices do you recommend for Circuit?

Last updated:

Circuit requires a microphone and a speaker or headset for voice conversations. For best results, we recommend using the following audio devices:

  • USB headset – For best results, we recommend a high-quality USB headset with a noise-cancelling microphone. Several companies produce professional quality USB headsets with integrated noise-canceling microphones. Wired versions that connect via USB cables provide the best sound quality as the connection is digital and ensures sound isolation. A noise-canceling microphone blocks out external noises for other participants. Wireless versions are also available that provide a transmitter, which is plugged into the USB socket and transmits to and from the headset over Bluetooth.

  • Bluetooth headset – Many computers and mobile devices now come with integrated Bluetooth support, which makes it possible to use Circuit with any Bluetooth device, including headsets and car audio systems.

  • Analog headset – Many analog headsets are now available with integrated microphones. These headsets connect via a 3.5 mm jack with separate controls for the sound and microphone and provide the best results when using Circuit on a mobile device.

  • Built-in speakers and microphone – Using Circuit with a computer’s built-in speakers and microphone is the least preferred option because the microphone does not adequately isolate your voice from other noises in the room. In addition, other participants might hear an echo due to the microphone playing back the audio through the speakers.
