Which microphone sounds better?

Folks:

I want to publish some narrated slide shows (previous posting). I’ve recorded myself reading from an unpublished novel that I┬áhave written. The first MP3 below is using a regular microphone. The second is made with a headset noise-cancelling mic that presumably gets rid of more of the room sound. I would be very interested in readers’ opinions as to which sounds better for a slide show.



Note that both were recorded in Audacity, processed with the “Compressor Effect,” and output to MP3.
