Let's hope none of those constant-throat-clearers (like myself) get a hold of this, or online communities everywhere are in for a world of annoyance. Gotta say though, that is a great price for that, inefficient as it may be.

A throat mic picks up the same stuff a normal mic does so throat clearing is not going to sound any different.

I use a throat mic for Airsoft but it's not something I would consider for video games. Moving through the brush can make a boom mic a pain in the ass but that's not really a concern sitting on the couch so I don't really see the need for this. A bit of a gimmick I guess.

I was hoping for a real bone-conduction mic but never mind.

That seems really weird.
