You Get Solid Quality Audio with the Logitech C920
Considering its built-in microphone, the C920 delivers solid audio quality. While a device this small (it’s less than 4 inches wide) with fixed omnidirectional microphones can’t compete with larger professional-quality devices that have unidirectional microphones, it performs well under average classroom conditions. It does include automatic noise-cancellation, which helps if you are using it in an open space.
Because the C920 does not have speakers, you will need to use the built-in speakers on your device, buy stand-alone accessory speakers or use a headset. If you record your discussions or conferences and worry about audio fidelity, you might want to purchase a separate USB microphone.
Logitech C920 Offers Good Value at an Affordable Cost
Logitech makes a full range of webcams, with some costing three times what the C920 costs. This model isn’t the least expensive, but because it comes in under $100, it’s still affordable for most. A newer model, the C920s, is similar in price and also includes a lens cover for privacy. There is also the C922x model, which sells for a little more and is geared toward those with high-quality livestreaming needs. It comes with dual stereo mics and includes a six-month license for the XSplit video editing software.
