    I'm looking for 3.5mm detachable boom mics.

    I've got an Axentwear headset and have already purchased a Turtlebeach boom mic but unfortunately, it's a 2.5mm one.
    I've already tried several 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter but none of them snugly fitted the 2.5mm male connector of the boom mic.

    Anyone know of a place or ebay seller that has 3.5mm detachable boom mics or proper quality, snugly fitting 2.5mm female to 3.5mm male 3 pole audio adapters?

    Cheers!

    VModa BoomPro. I have one, works well.
    Reviews say audio quality is about on par with Antlion ModMic but at a third of the price.

    I scoured the internet for 3.5mm boom mics and all the others I found were cheapo chinese crap, with bad reviews for durability.
    VModa is not some unknown brand either, they make a bunch of high-end audio gear.

    Somewhere, over there!
    Seconded for the V-Moda mic. Great sound at a decent price. Those chinese ones on Aliexpress are a blatant ripoff. Not sure about overall quality, but V-Moda was my goto for audio for a while.

    It kinda defeats the whole ease of a detachable boom mic.

    I'm kinda looking for those things tho.

    Edit: thanks for the suggestions tho, If I cannot find any I'll get one of those likely.
