    Sure you can pick them up seperatly off ebay or the likes.

    The part number is Nokia HFM-8

    You'll probably have to splice it into your mic cable. As the nokia cable has a 1.5 mm jack plug. Where as yours morst probably has the 3.5mm jack.

    Hope this helps.
    Dont we have to be certain it uses the same voltages too.

    Are you sure? It just looks to me like the mic has a peice of plastic over it making it directional....

    Description:

    "Additional Information The microphone plugs into the bottom of your car kit - the connector locks into place to prevent being accidentally pulled out. To lock, insert the plug socket into the MIC socket of the car kit and twist 90°. The microphone can be placed around the car for convenience of use.

    Discreet and effective directional microphone. Struggling to be heard whilst communicating in your car? Invest in a Nokia microphone.

    Small and effective directional microphone."
    I would think since it's made for in car use that it would have the echo cancelling feature but who knows...

    No power? The logitech one supposedly has noise cancelling and it is just a standard plugin mic..

    the HFM-8 mic only has two cores in the wire. I snipped the 2.5 jack and attached a mono 3.5 jack instead, and plugged it in to my mic input. it doesn't work! any ideas?

    hi!

    you could use any microphone as long it is sensitive and loud enough!
    just use a soundcard specified for voice over ip!
    you can see this in the device manager theres a driver entry like "MS Kernel Echo Cancellation" under the audio devices section!
    personally i use this device:

    typhoon voice ip deluxe

    also for regular output for music in pretty good quality. bluetooth hands free works like a charm!

    excuse my bad english

    perhaps it's my jack that's not working. I've extended the orignal cable so I can run it from the front of the car to the back. Total about 5m I'd say. The original was about 3. Anyway, I'm not even getting a faint signal when I record using sound recorder, I'm just getting some hummmmmm. I'll have to test it somehow. or even test another mic in there first. thnx

    ps. I didn't notice anything wrong with your english, until you said excuse it. which is when I reviewed what you typed, and wondered what the hell you were talking about in your last sentence...

    Sorry been away for a while.

    I'm not sure of the charactaristics of the Nokia item. But it's by far the best mic ive fitted. Of all the Hands free kits i fit.

    The nokia hfm-8 is the best. And its the most Visually pleaing. The others just look like miniature mic's for Gerbils.

    Thats my 2 pence worth anyway! (pence = cent's)
    Another quality post from Dyl.
