    I was wondering what microphone people were using to utilize Siri with Sierra? If they do not have a monitor with a built-in microphone. Have a Mac Pro 6,1. Looking for something decent, but not like I'm David Letterman. Something way more subtle.

    I use my iSight. Too bad that Apple broke the video in FaceTime and many other application – however in Skype video from the iSight still works.

    Audio works fine.

    I have a Mac Pro 5,1 and am not using anything fancy, just a Logitech C270 USB webcam.

    The mic built into the Creative X7, which doesn't work very well. So this is a warning, not a recommendation.

    it always gets a good signal and usb powered so it dense take up a headphone jack win win. and for the price in my opinion it sounds a lot higher quality.

    I have two that I switch between at the moment.
    One is the Blue Nessi... sometimes I get people that say it doesn't sound very good. Any recording I've done and listened to sounded ok but for whatever reason over FaceTime or Phone calls, people don't like it when I use it.

    The other is the Logitech C930? Webcam with Mic. This one seems to do the best job overall for me.
