Extension for USB Microphone !!!
I have thought on buying a USB Microphone to record podcasts as professional as possible. The USB Microphone chord may not be longer than fifteen inches.
Is it possible, to add an extension to the original chord ??
Will the sound quality be substantially affected ??
Are there a few brand names that you may recommend over others ??
Thank you very much, very kind regards,

i don't know if it will work or not but they do sell USB extension cords similar to what you would find in home depot only for the computer. (see link below for example)
20" iMac C2D - 2.33GHz, 3 GB ram, ATI X1600 256 MB VRAM
17" MBP i7, 8 GB ram, 500 GB HD @ 7200 -
64 gig iPod Touch
64 GB black Verizon iPhone 5 - Verizon 64 gb iPad 3

I think this is the main limitation of the "USB Mic". If you were to use a standard mic that had an XLR connector then you could buy a 100ft XLR cable if needed and plug that into an audio interface. All professional mics have a standard XLR connector so you can mix and match cables, mics and audio interface.
The USB mic trades ease of use of flexibility. You have to decide which you want.

Not sure what mic you're thinking of, but many have a USB plug on the bottom, so you can attach whatever length of USB cable you want.
If the mic you are buying has a built-in cable, you can use a USB extension cable. If I recall, USB works up to 25 feet or so (after that, additional power is required to maintain the signal, like from a hub). Using an extension will have no effect on the quality of digital audio.
