I’m building a compact Picroft and I am having a rough time trying to find a microphone and speaker that is the right form factor and works well.
I’m looking for:
- Takes up less than 2 inches inches square (~60mm). I’m okay with hacking it up with a Dremel to make it smaller if I have to. It will be in a 3D printed case.
- Can hear well from at least 2 (preferably 3) meters away in any direction
- Is under USD$ 30
The little tiny microphone that keeps coming up here is certainly cheap and certainly small but from the reviews it’s clear it doesn’t have the range.
I am toying with an omni-directional lavalier microphone.
I’m also not opposed to some soldering or custom PCBs.
If anyone has any ideas or stuff they tried that works I’d love to hear it!
