    Thank you for your comments. It's not about sounding better than the included microphone - it's about ergonomics. My rig is actually above me on the top shelf of my desk bookshelf. I wanted a desk microphone so I can operate SSB without having to pull the microphone down to me.

    My "audio" (tone) reports are usually "N." ;)

    I would second a boom mounted mike and foot switch and/or headset. Both have their places in a "well outfitted shack".

    ...and they occupy less space than a desk mike.

    I think Boom Mikes are for those who envision themselves sitting in a Commercial Broadcast station.
    I prefer a desk top for my fireside chats. ;)
    Handmikes are for those who envision themselves as Smokey or the Bandit.

    ...and it takes up valuable desk space between you & your rig and/or beer. :p

    OTOH, with a headset, no desk space is wasted, and no matter which way you turn your noggin, the microphone is ALWAYS in the correct location. :)
