#9 - New Microphone Test for Headphones

This is update #9 in our weekly series of new features and improvements.

This week, we are testing the quality of the microphone of headphones.

Our microphone reviews of headphones are divided into two sections: recording quality, and noise handling. Recording quality is concerned with the performance of the microphones and the quality of speech when used in an ideal (quiet) environment. Noise handling tests the microphone in a noisy environment to see how well it separates speech from noise, and what effects a noisy environment has on the speech transmission and intelligibility.

86 headphones reviews have been updated with their microphone measurements. You can see the full list here.
