    any place i can buy a short stereo-mini (3.5mm) type mic, short, semirigid (e.g. 6" length extension) ? I have a headset but the mic became detached and is missing. I see a similar concept (for example) with this shure mic (http://www.shure.com/americas/products/microphones/beta/beta-98hc-instrument-microphone), except right-angle connector won't work, and what's needed here is something for pedestrian gaming.

    any suggestions are appreciated,
    thanks

    Ah nice!. I'm hoping to find something real inexpensive because the headset itself is pretty low quality..

    I used a Zalman MIC-1 for years without issue, which you can get for as little as $12 if cost a big issue at the moment (Amazon). No-frills clip-on mic.

    A clip on mic like the zalman would be your most cost effective solution. It isn't perfect but should work well emough.
