A book group I’m in has started meeting in person again with a few people connecting remotely via Zoom. It was hard for the zoomers to hear everybody, especially those sitting farther from my laptop, so I’d like to get a mic. I’m open to almost any suggestion but here are some thoughts:
I was thinking of getting a bluetooth mic that we could pass around. That would have the clearest sound and hopefully help prevent people from talking over each other. On the other hand it would be awkward to pass it around. How well would it pick up some back-and-forth between two people?
Maybe a directional mic would be better? Something that I can hold and just point at the speaker(s). Does anybody have any experience in this kind of setting?
